  2. Galil & Valmet Discussions
    Hello all, I am new here and am wanting to do a Galil ARM build in .308. I have the bolt, receiver and basic parts kit sourced, the only thing I am missing (that I am aware of) is the barrel. Does anyone have any idea where I might find a barrel for these in .308?

    I recently purchased a Soviet AKM barrel and want to know if it's an izhmash or tula manufacturered barrel.
  4. Krinkovs
    I found a 8.25inch Krink Barrel at a show for a good price and figured I would take a chance on it. The only information I have is that they think it is a Bulgarian barrel. The stamping is Bulgarian (at least what is left of it). Doesn't have a gas port drilled (which is weird cause it looks...

    Looking for a Romanian RPK barrel (7.62) to complete my build. I see AK builder has some but figured I’d check here before buying elsewhere.
  6. General Discussion
    I recently got my hands on some barrels that are for milled receivers with the breech end being threaded. From what few markings I could find, these barrels are either Polish Combloc, Bulgarian, or Russian production, but a buddy of mine that sold them to me insists that they’re Russian, and...

    Was looking at the 7.62x39 barrels on K-Var's website. Only one of them explicitly states it is drilled for a 90 degree gas port. The other two (SKU AK332C and AK601) do not state the gas port angle. I am getting crickets out of K-Var. Does anyone happen to know the angle? I am looking at these...

    While I was digging through my kits, I came across a stray barrel. I originally thought it was Bulgarian now I think its Yugoslavian because of the 3 but it has some other distinctive markings that's making me unsure. My google search for barrel markings turned up very little. Anyone know of...

    Was looking at a Maadi parts kit but it is missing the barrel. Who in the US makes the best 7.62 barrel? It is going to be more of a shooter than a historical piece. Has anyone tried Faxon's barrels?

  16. Troubleshooting
    Hey ya'll I was out shooting the other day and noticed my handguard fell off. There always was a fair amount wiggle room for the retaining cap. I considered applying some J&P weld as a hill-billy fix, another option is a new barrel hopefully with less metal cut out for the retaining cap pin to...

    I was recently cleaning the barrel of my Saiga after a day of shooting 00 and slugs pretty heavily. Every 5 or 6 range trips I will use a wire brush to get out pieces that had been left behind. When cleaning, I noticed bits of metallic flakes coming out with the patches. I inspected the...

    Apparently the barrel on my polish AKM kit is just too damn tight: I keep bending rods on the toth tool barrel install/removal tool while trying to push my barrel out (nitride lined hardened barrel). Is there anyone in NYS with a drill press willing to help me out?

I set up the tool exactly as shown in the demonstration video: nu t on each side of the rod, the blovks, then a nut behind each to keep them firm. Then the block for the ratcheting, I placed the...
