for a sewer pipe? Someone is smoking PCP over there. How much does a well made domestic bbl go for?
I bought 5 Yugo kits from them (fixed stock version). All the barrels looked like a multitude went through it. I did so much cleaning I still think I smell the solvents. And of course, not being chromelined does not help my cause either.
I'd rather pay the same amount and get the rest of the weapon with it, like their SA-85 kits.
When it really comes down to it, if Century can have barrels made, and assemble a complete rifle with a retail of $400, I would guess that U.S. barrels for the retail market, with a decent price tag, should not be too far behind.
I saw them listed as "virgin" barrels on the EE at AR15.COM
"Original "Virgin" Yugo M70 AK-47 7.62x39 Barrels!!! New Zastava manufactured barrels. These barrels have never been assembled (Gas port hole has not been drilled) We have a small quantity arriving soon. Preorders available. $169.97 each delivered.

I have resorted to buying a "cheapo" 7.62mm barrel blank , and am now in the process of lathe copying one - for less than that crazzy $$ - but i am doing the lathe work myself , - i will post accuarcy results when completed- it wont be chrome lined - but atleast it has sharp clean lands & grooves
Nope... It called supply and demand. Capitolism, plain and simple.
If they have them and want to sell them, they can price them how they
see fit. If their price is too high, nobody will buy them and they will eventually have to lower their price.
They can charge the price the market dictates.
IF they actually sell well at that price, there is no reason to lower it.
Just because someone THINKS their price is too high, doesnt mean
their price IS too high.
What do you think a NEW yugo barrel should go for???
All it means is that particular person wont buy it for that price.
But someone else may buy it. Someone who really wants
it bad enough to pay the price they are selling it for.
I've missed out on deals for things that i have really wanted becasue of
50-100 dollars in price. It was stupid not to just pay the extra and get it.
Never again will i nickel and dime my self out of an item that i really want.
If i did have a kit that had one of those sewerpipe barrels and wanted to do a really nice YUGO build,
id be all over that barrel in a heartbeat.
