    I don't think it will be very easy to find a Chinese front trunnion.

    YOUR CAHNCES OF FINDING A CINESSE TRUNION ARE SLIM AN NONE AN IF YOU DID ITS GOING TO BE VERY VERY EXPENSIVE.

    YOU NEED A DIFFERNT BARREL. IT ALSO LOOKS LIKE THE RSB IS WRONG FOR THE TRUNION.

    BOTTOM LINE IS YOU NEED A CORRECT BARREL AN IF IM NOT MISTAKEN THE YUGO BARREL PARTS WILL NOT FIT A ROMMY OR OTHER AKM BARREL. ALSO THE THERE MIGT BE SOME DUST COVER FIT ISSUES.

    WHAT YOU LIKELY NEED IS A YUGO PRESS IN BARREL .

    IM NOT EVEN GOING TO SUGGEST TRYING A SLEAVE ON THE 19MM BARREL. THERE ARE TO MANY ISSUES TO DEAL WITH .

    THERE WERE A LOT OF THOSE BARREL FOR SALE CHEAP BECAUSE THEY DONT WORK ON ANYTHING. IT MIGHT ALSO BE A SKS BARREL AS WELL.

    HATE TO SAY IT BUT YOUR KIND OF IN A BAD SPOT .

    THE FIRST THING YOU DO BEFORE BUYIING ANY MORE PARTS IS MIC THE PARTS YOU HAVE SO YOU KNOW WHAT SIZE BARREL JOURNALS YOU NEED.

    CFS USED TO HAVE DARK BORE YUGO BARRELS CHEAP BUT THERE GENERALY CRAP.

    Measure the inside diameter of everything you have that goes on the barrel

    I found a barrel from gm that will fit the 23mm trunion while maintaining the proper dimensions for the fab, gas block, and rear sight base. Guess it's time to call numrich and return the barrel. I wouldn't really all a Chinese ak an akm would you? I've always heard of them described differently. Not that it matters as I would have needed a different barrel anyways. Thanks for all the help and input guys!!

    Does GM even have those barrels in stock? They were out the other day.

    like Coils said the milled kits are a little bigger on the barrel components. most euro AKM FSB inside diameter is around 0.690+/- the milled bulg FSB are around 0.730+/- about a mm difference, even the gas block is about a mm larger. I would find a barrel blank and have it just profiled to fit your components. green mountain sells barrel blanks Green Mountain Rifle Barrel - Search

    also here is another member's build thread using a milled kit on a stamped receiver

    Are you talking a profiled Barrel or some other blank that is unturned,unchambered,unprofiled?

    As it's already been stated the milk barrels have larger journals than the stamped barrels. if this is true nobody is going to make a barrel that fits your parts correctly.

    There is a thread hear that somewhere lists Journal diameters of various makes and models you need to study it before buying anything else.

    The Chinese trunnion will be pricey and a different rivet pattern than a Polish receiver. Or is it a Polish blank? I would use a Nodak receiver and get AK47 pattern barrel and sell the Chinese barrel.
