    Default Heavy barrel AK 47

    Is there a AK 47 that was built with a heavy barrel? or a heavy barrel longer than 16 inches? I like the look of the heavy barrel AR 15's and was thinking of building a heavy barrel AK.

    1biggun has some good info in past posts, ie; "Accurizing the AK", I think was the original thread. I think you'll find it in the archives. Lots of good info from several very experienced builders there in that thread.

    That's pretty impressive what kind of groups are you getting? are you using standard AK loads or something hotter?

    read all this an then go from there .

    In a nut shell its going to shoot good with a good barrel with a tight chamber , good ammo a good trigger an better sights or optics.

    If you have a lathe the build is easy . If you dont I can help if you want to spend a few $$$$

    a rpk GB an other barrel parts on a good barrel is a good start. the calibure is up to you . 7.62x39 drops like a rock after 200 yards to IMO it better go with some thing faster .

    I wonder if you can control the recoil rate of a hotter cartridge with the gas port size or the recoil spring.
