    Thumbs up Kudos to Hotbarrel

    I have been working toward getting a compliant Yugo M90 rifle built up -- it's one of those Yugoslavian underfolders in 5.56 -- and one of the parts that I'm going to use is a US-made gas piston.

    I contacted Hotbarrel and he was willing to make a gas piston for me.

    I sent him the whole bolt carrier with gas piston attached and the next thing I know I have this:

    Can you tell which is the foreign made piston and which is the made-with-pride-in-America-piston?

    New piston with original piston:

    I sent one of Stickerman's (AKA ak-builder.com) rivets:

    and it worked very well.

    Hotbarrel can make any piston, even oddball ones like the kind used in the M90.

    Yes, HB's done some great piston work for me as well.

    A local machinist looked baffled when I asked about
    piston work for Krinks, then quoted me some outrageous price.
    I told him I know a guy in Maine who can do the work reasonably and well. I don't know why I wasted my time.
