    Default think i bought the wrong ak front end??

    i am finally getting parts together for the mg47es build.

    i bought an m70 yugo front end (because i remember it need to be wider than the standard ak, which if i remember right is 1.250").

    but i think that might be wrong. from what i read an rpk front end will work but i wanted the short barrel of the ak.

    what do i need to buy?



    thanks

    Your confusing
    Did you get a Yugo RPK front end and want a stand AK 16"?

    no i bought the m70 yugo ak fornt end.

    i think i read that the rpk front end was what i was supposed to buy.

    but i would rather use the m70 because i dotn really want i longer barrel.

    hope that makes sense.

    The M70 and M72 use the same trunnion. I think you're GTG.

    RPK is bulged. The M70 is made on an RPK receiver.

    after looking at some pictures (again), i have concluded i need a smack to the forehead!

    you guys are right. i thought i had seen a picture "sharpsshooter" had done where the trunnion was flat and it was the flat stock that was bolted to the trunnion which is flat but i can clearly see now that the trunnion gets narrower after that part (i.e. down from the buldge).

    which is great news cuz now i can start getting the rest of my pieces together (maybe next week when i have some more cash).


    thanks guys
