View Full Version : AK barrels

June 15, 2000, 12:02 PM
I have 2 AK parts sets, 1 SLR 95,1 Russian
no full auto parts, the barrels measure
.909 at the breach that goes into barrel
trunion, Federal Arms Corp. sells 2 receivers
1 milled and 1 stamped both made in USA,
F A Corp. says these receivers accept any
EUROPEAN barrels and inside diameter is .900
will either of my barrels fit these receivers
if I have a .009 difference. I have USA made
internals, and have cut bayo lugs off barrels
and welded muzzle brakes on, so all is legal
trying to make a semi AK,I posted at AK web board but that place is DEAD, if you have any info on barrel dimensions, the russian
barrel has no markings, the other has a 95
inside a wierd bowling ball sitting in a chair emblem?any info would help, thanks

Hi, Zot,

This sounds more like a question for the Smithy board, but I will give it a try. The .009 difference should make not be a problem. Besides, the barrel is the bigger, so if it doesn't quite fit, a little work with a file should make it a good fit.

thanks jim, easy fix, maybe sandpaper would work too?

And a fair amount of elbow grease. Obviously a lathe would be better, but try the new barrel first. You may find nothing has to be done (measurements some times don't come out quite right).
