    Kvar also has the correct Bulgarian 5.45 bullet guides with the flat bottom. A direct drop in, with only a bit of grinding to remove the bolt assist cam on the left side.

    Install by drilling and tapping.

    The best thing is the price $15.00

    Look at an AK just behind the barrel and you'll see this thing in there. (got the pic from K-Var)

    I know this might be a stupid question but why drilling and tapping to install the bullet guide? Doesn't it rivet in place?

    Dinzag (probably the best known purveyor of such parts) offers bullet guides that are attached with a screw.


    Riveting them in is done at the factory, and is beyond the reach of most home-hobbyists.

    I assume bullet guides are riveted in at the factory before the trunnion is installed in a reciever, when I riveted in a bullet guide in a milled receiver build I did it was easy and I assume it would be the same in a stamped trunnion. But with the trunnion riveted in the receiver already I'm sure it would be very difficult.

    is there already a pllace to screw the screw into in the reciever or does a hole have to be drilled?

    You can rivet it in place while it is still in the receiver if you build a bucking bar to fit the space between the trunion and the bottom of the rec. It also needs a support on the bottom outside to minimize distortion. Press straight down on the rivet and finish with a convex to provide the proper dish. Make the bucks thinner than the width of the rec to avoid flattening the bends. A bit tedious but doable.

    There was a recess on mine for the starter hole, made it easy to drill. Much easier to do with a screw and red loctite. My screwed/loctited ramp hasn't budged!
