    Default BIG AK 8MM

    Alright guys, here is one carzy project from me

    AK in 8mm, yes this has been talking about it but here is what I got and it maybe just happened

    here is my idea, let me know what you think, anything help

    1. Use Blank 8mm barrles or truk 8mm
    2. Use Izzy Heavy Barrle FAL Gas black system
    3. Use M76 Bolt and Bolt carryier
    4. Use Coldsteel PSL/Romak3 reciver Blank
    5. Use MG-13 25rd 8mm mags
    6. Use M70 or Trunnion.

    I got just about everything, but I need few more parts
    Romak 3 Gas tube, Dust cover, selector and stock set.if you had it let me know if you want sell it
    here few pictures

    M76 Bolt and carrier , recoil spring from ORF ( I got the Last one ),free trunk 8mm,rust outside but shine shine inside


    Top is M70 Bolt and M76 Bolt




    Will the M76 8mm Bolt fit inside of M70 Tunnion ??? Yes It does

    Excellent start, how about listing where you purchased your items for this to make it easier for us to follow your lead.
    Great work.

    I wonder if this would be done easier by getting a .308 saiga for $350 putting 8mm barrel on it and adapting some BAR or mg13 clips for it. Of course the 8mm barrel would be needed also.

    No, it will be easy to use 30.06 AK , and putting the 8mm barrel, but the new Saiga 30.06 looking nothing like AK,
    30.06 AK also has same bolt face as 8mm, .308 is not
    30.06 Mag is almost as long as 8mm, .308 is too short

    if I am going all the troubles to spend $375 on 30.06 Ak plus parts to make AK 8mm, it will be cheaper and fun build from parts

    A .308 is the same bolt face as a 8mm, I can shoot both .308 or 8mm in my 1919 by just swapping the barrels. Another thing that may need to be done is drilling off the ejector and moving it aft and rewelding it in. Also, how is it going to be cheaper to build from parts for anyone else if there are no more 8mm bolt and carriers to be found, you said you got the last one? For the rest of us, there aren't too many options. 308 saigas can be found for $300-339 now add a 8mm barrel, modify some BAR or mg13 mags, move the ejector and dress it up like a ak the same way guys are doing with .223 saigas. You'll still have a 8mm gun for less than $500.

    for me that is , I got must of parts I need to start with it, I had less $300 for all the parts, also here is question I been thinking, what is CUP pressure on 8mm VS .308, not sure if .308 bolt will hold it or not,
