I am thinking of putting a 20"/RPK barrel on one of my AKs. Is this a difficult process? Is it possible?

Shane, while I've never rebarreled an AK it's been my experience that as long as a barrel or blank can be machined to fit a receiver then it can be done. I'm not sure what you might run into with this, but my recommendation is that any rebarreling be done by a smith. Any good smith could do it, but I'd find somebody who specializes in AKs. George
