Okay, I've read all the 308 conversion threads and MG47 threads over and over. I still have a couple months until I can get back in the shop, but here is what I am planning:
A Belt-fed, AK out of a Yugo RPK kit in .308, using the original finned RPK barrel just reaming the chamber.
I have got SS's MG-47 plans, an RPK I cut to 19" to make a carbine that I am not particulagly pleased with, an MG3 FT and TC on order, a good source for 308, and the desire to use disentigrating links.
I need a chamber reamer and a spare 1,000 hours. The question is, and I have found some folks that WANTED to do it, but what results have you had with reaming out the x39 chambers to .308. I know the whole .308 vs .311 issue and I am okay with that for a "proof of concept" build. I got the RPK kit a year ago with a shot out front couple of inches anyway so it is a good candidate.
Thoughts? Has anyone tried this yet?
