    Default 7.62x25 AR

    Im interested in building my next AR in 7.62x25tok. I want to SBR it with a 7.5 in bbl. Ive found a few upper reciever kits to convert for arount $800!!
    From what I understand the standard AR boltface has to be opened up a bit, or a custom bolt be used. Theres vids all over you tube of guys with Tokarev ARs but they dont give any build info so thats why Im here. Anybody got any info where to get the parts to BIY?

    get a ppsh 41 or 43 bbl, they are cheap and chrome lined. make a bushing to fit it to the upper and cut it to the desired length. thats half the battle. then make a mag well adapter for either ppsh 41 or 43 mags. they are cheap and readily available.

    why dont you do one in blowback like I did mine. Just use off the shelf 9mm AR parts and My mag adapter with a 7.5 barrel.

    Blowback works well with the length of barrel you are talking about.

    the 9mm bolt head works just perfectly on the 7.62x25 case...

    thats what im using in my Prexis tok upper and im pretty sure thts what MadMachinist is using in the other AR upper that he is custom building for me.

    How will blowback work with the locking mechanism of the AR bolt? Theres no gas to move the carrier aft thus unlocking the bolt from the chamber?

    those barrels are getting a little harder to find..

    if you'll hang in till next week i'll have you some pix of my new custom 7.62 TOK ar upper in action and how you can get one.

    or you could always look at my tok AR upper in the side feeder from Prexis.
