    What is the twist rate and have you verified the bore?

    This is something I have been waiting for with three kits & receivers waiting for correct barrels!

    Sorry, eec4tuner no link available order by phone only. As to twist rate, i didn't ask. This barrel was not advertised as seperate item. I saw an advert for complete weapons and gave them a call, hoping that they would sell me a barrel.

    I had been in contact with Green Mountain and they are going to have them late this month. Don't know about price or twist but they told me late November.

    I got tired of waiting and bought a 5.56 East German barrel from Apex . A little time on the lathe and it is almost together.

    My buddy called them today & found out that:
    #1 They are chrome lined
    #2 They are 1 in 200mm twist (1 in 8)
    #3 They are threaded
    #4 They do have the gas port hole drilled
    #5 They are profiled for the tantal kit parts
    #6 They are American manufacture
    #7 The extractor cut is there
    #8 The pin cutouts for compomemts are all cut

    He went ahead & bought three to give them a try during the holidays building while off from work! Will report when they arrive!

    The barrels i recieved have the extractor cut and the handguard retainer rails cut, they also have all the retaining pin slots cut. The gas port is drilled and the threads start about 1 inch from the muzzle,however i have found out that the unthreaded part of the barrel is too large to fit the grenade launcher/break.

    Do you know what the bore spec is Russian or S&W? Looked at their site and was maybe wondering about the availability of AK 74 barrels? Called GM and they won't have any 74 barrels till I think March. Arms of America was supposed to get some at the end of Oct but dosen't know when they will arrive. Are there any chrome 74 Bulgy barrels around?
