I’m thinking on building an AK in 6.5 Grendel.
I used the search feature in this and in the other forum and only came back with a report about Marc Krebs project. After that, nothing.
Has anybody else done it? I would like to hear about it, but also would like to hear ideas and opinions from others.
Right now I have a kit of mixed Hungarian parts eager to get built, and as far as I understand, I would only need a barrel that leaves 0.125” for the headspace (contrary to the 0.135” needed for a true Grendel, as I don’t want to machine the regular AK bolt).
Anybody knows of a possible source for 6.5 Grendel barrels for the AK47?

I have a bin full of parts for one.Lack of cheaper 6.5 ammo and rumors of 6.5 Vepr's and sloth have it unbuilt .
To me the mag is the rub.You'll need an AR adapter and Grendel AR mags.I have seen a VZ58 in 6.5 built.On Weaponsguild IIRC.
Don't recall seeing any 6.5 AK profile barrels anywhere.

I'm actually going to be working on one soon. I'm doing one based on an M72 kit and I'll be having a local shop custom turn my barrel. A guy that goes by MtDew has done one on gunco I believe. I'm just sort of stuck on the magazine part as I would really like to avoid using AR mags.
