New nitride or chrome-lined preferred for milled M70 milled build. Will consider an excellent surplus barrel as well.

Thx for the reply. Looks like the have only rough surplus in stock.
when using a original barrel you have a advantage of pressing on all componets holes already drilled..if i were doing it i would order 2 barrels,use the better one of the 2 and sell the other one.

I already have a couple Surplus barrels, hand select, from Lee’s mags. They both I passed the bullet test, but they also show erosion between the muzzle and the gas port. Just thinking that if I’m going through the trouble of building maybe I should get a new US barrel to meet 922R. But your post is making me lean towards Using one of these original barrels for the ease of build, and originality. Still, would like to acquire a new barrel for a second build.

i have learned through the years when doing a home build i try to keep them as original as possible.the reason is these riffles that we build are really bringing back a piece of history.most likely they will be test fired and shot once in awhile.they are not your go to rifle in case of TEOFTWAWKI.just mostly a conversation piece and the pride of bringing them back to life.AKS are a M.O.M rifle,=Minute Of Man.i built a yugo RPK with a barrel which ate a bullet to the case,but still hit a man target with ease as 100 yards.

I have a complete front end barrel assembly. When I got it, I was told was an original barrel. Bullet check done and looks good to go. Front sight spring gone for night sight, and the gas cut off nut seems to be stripped. If interested, let me know and I'll see if I'm able to locate it.

Thanks but no thanks, Saiga. I have two complete parts kits so I'd prefer to keep the sight posts and gas blocks matching.
