would the barrel on a sks be thicker than a ak barrel?
SKS and AK barrels have different diameters and contours, I don't know the specs off the top of my head.
Neither is prone to warping, and both made out of very rigid material.
You can mate a heavy barrel to an AK, but it takes some time and fitting unless you're building with RPK parts.
