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.
I have done a bunch of them .
I am building one now with a threaded in barrel .
the easiet way is to gt a RPK gas block an turn a barrel to fit . the gb is about .830
26" savage bull barrel in 223 . shots 1/2 "
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 .
