    Default Sar2 barrel assem.

    I found an sar2 barrel ass. for $65 and was thinking, how much time and money would it take to make it into a romy '74? One with the romy folder and turned up charging handle. Where to find a trunnion, bolt? I will need to reheadspace, and re-drill the pinhole. I figure, if I want a new charging handle anyway, besides the trunnion and bolt,every thing else is fairly easy to find and deal with. Any thoughts? Is it worth it?
    Thanks,
    EdHunter

    I think it would be worth it. Just stay on the look-out for a bolt/ bolt carrier and front trunion. They shouldn't be too hard to find. If I see some of what you need somewhere, I'll PM you.

    Here it is.

    The sar2 barrel had no trunnion so one was made from a
    '47.

    The '74 Rommy fsb is from K var. I mean to get back with hotbarrel for the brake one of these days.

    The carrier is a '47. So is the piston. And it shoots wonderfully!

    What had to be done to get the barrel to work with the 47 carrier? Did the '74bolt fit in the carrier? Is their any differences in parts like trigger guard, dust cover, recoil spring, gas tube? Sorry about all the questions, but I hope to get this barrel assembly, and start a project out of this!
    Thanks,

    Something you may consider, is to buy a mismatch '74 folder from ORF, sell the folder and furniture, Buy your Romy furniture and wire folder with that money and still come out ahead. Just an idea though

    Nothing. But the carrier had to be milled to clear the mag.

    The trigger guard was from 7.62x39. Looked like it was probably a '47. The cover, spring, and tube were from a box of parts.

    If you've got the '74 trunnion -- that was most of the work.
