This barrel might also be just the ticket for one of the shot out #4 enfields out there in 762x39. I wonder what the twist rate is compared to a regular 303 barrel?
I wonder why their web site does not give a mailing address. It isn't like everyone uses a credit card to buy with, like me.
If you click on the "Contact Us" button near the top of the page, they give a phone number to call, and an email form.
I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."
well profiled would be if it is turned to fit something or has some thing done to it other than a turned blank.
a straight blank os just that a straight blank it is not profiled to a AK in any shape way or form. for me that is a good thing for a guy who thought he was getting a 20 long barrel that was profiled to take AK parts he is SOL.
Im actually really clad to see these. i get request frequintely from guys asking if I can do a heavier longer barrel that will still shoot surpluss and factory .311 bullets. this will make this possable. I think a fluted 1" bull barrel AK with a 20" barrel would shoot pretty damm good if you do some of the stuff I did on my other builds. It will be interesting to see how they perform. If they shoot good I might make a few extra up for sale or trade. They would work on a mosin nagant as well fro a cool build. I wuld like to see them 24" long but Its a start. you can also build a couple 10" pistols from one as well.
For a guy with a lathe and a reamer this will allow some savings on building a barreless kit and also give the option of some really unique builds. I will do a straight unfluted bull baarrel build on a beater gun I have here and see how it shoots. I may have to re work my reamer to take a .311 pilot as mine is currently a .308 fixed. I may just buy a new one with a slightly tighter neck and less bullet lead to help the accuracy some.
I wish they had a 1-15 or slower option. I think the standard AK twist is way to fast. IMOO I see no reason for a twist rate that will stabelie a 200 grain bullet it makes no sence to me.
I HAVE PLAYED WITH PULLENG DOWN FACTORY AND SURPLUSS AMMO AND LOADING THE CACES WITH BETTER POWDER OR REMEASURED POWDER AND QUALITY BULLETS IN .310 WITH SOME DECENT RESULTS. i WISH THERE WERE MORE BULLET SELECTION OUT THERE.
I was thinking these will be nice for 7.62x25 AK build
Back to x39 and x54r I was wondering around Green Mountains web page and did notice they have 32-20 WCF pistol blanks. 11in long, 1 in 16 twist, and land of 306 and grove of 312. Could work for some of the surplus, but the wolf hp that I have measured is running around 308.... 32-20 WCF Cartridge pistol blank
Haven't found any barrels like what the CZ527 in 7.62x39 uses, .300 land and a groove of .311.
sjohnson, thanks for your help. Believe it or not, I avoid telephones like a plague, so I didn't even think of calling.
I guess I gotta ...........use the telephone.
Agreed, a slower twist would be nice for the X39.
