Okay so i finally cleaned out some more junk bins. found a 7 inch romy chrome bbl i had from a disastrous learning experience from years ago. figured id try my hand at being a human lathe and turning it down to fit a Bulgarian gas block.
......aaaaaand i did it.
Put it in an AMD trunnion and headspace..
and im using a polish 80% blank.
and that is as far as i have gotten today. I have been reading and reading and reading on guide rod builds, and still have some questions...
1. Do i need to drill through the gas block? or just drill an indent so to speak for the guide rod to rest in?
If anyone could post some pictures of the internals of their own, and how the rod attaches, where the spring goes, etc, i would REALLY appreciate it!!!!
More to follow. going to get a pistol trunnion from AK-builder for the back part. still throwing some ideas around. Thanks all!
