    Default Where to find .223 parts?

    I'm just in the very early information gathering stage of wanting to build my very own AK. I have a BMK-92 which is a MAC-90 in .223 and enjoy the rifle very much. I would like to stay with the same caliber for a build so I am wondering where to find .223 barrels and other parts needed to do a BIY?
    I've seen a few sources for mags but none for bbls.[img]images/smilies/dunno.gif[/img]
    Thanks in advance

    Try contacting www.polytechparts.com also a sponsor of Gunco. If it is not on their website then call.

    Their parts are Chinese pattern and should fit all Chinese style rifles.

    I have Bulgarian and Chinese 223 AK parts.The Bulgarian is more like the the Gailil or maybe the Valmet.The bolt has a short bottom to strip rounds from the mag.The Chinese bolt has a long tang on the bottom that won't clear the bullet guide in the Bulgarian trunnion.The Bulgarian 223 carrier is like a Chinese or milled receiver carrier.The Bulgarian AKM carrier is like a standard 7.62 AKM carrier not the milled AK47.The Bulgarian AK74 carrier is like the Russian/German AK74 .carrier.The 223 gas port is smaller than the 7.62 gas port.I think 7.62 is 3mm.The Chinese used this size which is too large and causes too much recoil.The Galil has a 1.8mm gas port.

    Don't forget Chinese barrels are 19mm stubs.

    Just check with polytechparts.com, they don't have much on 223s. Chinese parts are troublesome unless you can find a complete kid.

    Where can I find one of those MAK-90 kids they used to sell for under $200? If I can locate a set, then I can use the 223 barrel and bolt to build one on a 74 receiver by plug and redrilling some holes.
