Headspacing an ak
I'm in this process of building a ak 74 and really don't wanna buy 60$ worth of headspacing gauges....can I bypass it? I'm using a barreled Bulgarian parts kit on a us reciever

If it was the original barreled reciever, I'd say no, but since it isn't original, I wouldn't take the chance.

$60 is better than blowing your rifle up and killing yourself.

Ugh that blows lol anyway to hillbillyheadspace? Lol no gauges?

Not that I'm aware of, buy the gauges and then return them. :p

you only need a go and nogo gage. the field isnt neccessary.

there is no shortcut around this. only thousandths of an inch turn a rifle from a rifle and into a bomb.
