Default 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.

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

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.
