I have been trying to get this together for a while and as we all know parts are scarce , I still need a charging handle if anyone has one out there they would like to part with . I have no clue what kind of barrel it is there is no stamping what so ever on it , the FSB is machined and very very smooth , no cast flashing on it , it is a 12" heavy profile barrel , it had a 6" flash hider on it that looked ancient. The barrel is just snugged up as it is going to get bead blasted along with the FSB tomorrow so I can reparkerize it Monday because they had light surface rust and it bothers me :D.
The feed ramps have no marks on them and no carbon in on or around the FSP. the only thing down the barrel was dust . lol . No marks from a BCG going into battery , Im going to say this one has probably never had a round through it if it has it was very little .
Anyone know about that machined FSB ?

I have a similar question Havoc . I just bought a barrel on line and its brand new but several years old its stamped R 5.56 Nato 1/7 any ideas who made it ? . The owner said he thought it might be a Wilson .

There are many stores online with CH's still in stock. It's the BCG that is non-existant

This was the classic that was spot welded on the barrel

Wow that thing IS a blast from the past!

Kinda looks like a stretched out RPK flash hider. In fact I have a Tapco "RPK" model like that on my AK, much shorter of course.

its going in the bead blast cabinet tomorrow and Im going to repark it and hang on to it, Im not sure of the era its from but Im guessing its a older one , it was welded on to that barrel with one very nice looking spot weld . So Im not so sure maybe this setup wasnt a older preban setup ? but with no marking on the barrel or FSB I have no clue

If you want just a standard mil-spec charging handle, I have a spare that I can send you for free. If you want a BCM, PRI, or Raptor, I have some for sale;)

PM me your address if you want the standard CH.
