  2. .223 Head Space Gauges

    Want to Buy/Trade - Non AK Related
    Anyone have any .223 Headspace Gauges they'd let me borrow? (I'll pay for shipping both ways). I just built my first AR15 upper and I don't want to spend all that money on new gauges just for this one build plus all the gunsmiths around me still seem to be closed from 'Rona. Much appreciated.

    Build It Yourself
    I'm going to be building a Russian 1982 AKS-74 clone soon and want to make it dead on for the year, but like many people I've had little to no hands on with a original Rusky.

  9. Tapco G2 trigger group finish

    Build It Yourself
    I just finished building (really assembled them and opened the magwells and trigger wells) 2 Hungarian AMD63 Parts kits.

  10. 9mm AK build videos

    Build It Yourself

Anyhow, other people can see what I did and improve on the work, thats...

    I'm shopping for a barrel to use for a 1969 Izhmash AKM build (Rguns kit). Authenticity is important to me, I plan on getting the 74uLLC receiver based on reviews in this forum. I've heard that virgin Romy barrels are good. Does that just mean an unused surplus barrel? What about the US...
