Changing barrel on AK-47
magripa Member Posts: 47 ✭✭
Have Romanian AK-47 WASR-10 and would like to replace original barrel with US made 21” Tabuk barrel. Is it possible to do that and if yes can you recommend gunsmith?
Most AK barrels are pressed in and pinned. You have to press out the pin then the barrel. Have the new barrel pressed in ( checking for head space while doing this) then redrill the pin hole and press in the pin. Not very difficult if you have the right equipment. Don't know any Gunsmiths that do this but you might be able to do a web search to find one.
Why? Cheaper to buy the one you want
