    Default OD of Suomi barrel?

    What's the OD of a Suomi barrel? Are they tapered, stepped like an AK, etc? If so what's the taper and where are the steps? I know several folks have a pile of these, I'm hoping someone can measure one for me.

    I've got some ideas for these kits, but I don't have one yet.

    They are alot smaller than an AK trunnion. I will try to measure it for you later.
    That which does not kill you, makes you stronger

    Thanks. Actually I know they need to be sleaved for the AK trunion. I'm wondering about gas block placement. I'm considering turning a worn out yugo into a 9mm. I've heard of folks doing a 9mm AK with this barrel, but I've heard the yugos have a thicker barrel than a normal AKM.

    I might just need to just buy the parts and try it, if it don't work there's always a market for this stuff

    Gas operated 9mm? IZMASH went with straight blowback on the Bizon, and still used the AK bolt carrier and trunnion setup.

    No, the gas block is just for show. I've decided against trying to get dimensions, I'm just gonna buy some parts and make them fit.

    If I remember correctly the Suomi barrel is 3/4 inch, no taper and no steps.
