I also would like to get some views on the U.S. made barrels for the YUGO RPK M72 that I see are being made. From what I can gather GreenMountain isn't making them anymore. I have a chance to buy an original import that is hammer forged but have read that there not as well made as the newer U.S. barrels. Does anyone know of an AK gunsmith who can drill the port hole etc. on the raw barrels as they come with no drilling on them. Any information on parts for these guns would be helpful.
