I want to pic up some head space gauges for my 7.62 and 5.45 AK's. I have heard that 5.45 is hard to get and unreliable in thier sizes. I've also heard the forester 7.62x39 gauges are out of spec.

SO... where do I look?????? I already tried emailing Izhmash and got no responce. I suppose I could try Tula or maybe Polyani?

Thanks but I'd still like to hear more. Here is some advice I got from some other friends.

All I know is that the Manson ones I got from Brownell's a few weeks back
are WAY off. Tried them in three IZHMASH AK-47s, and two AKMs along with
two spare Polish AKM bolts I have, and no combo will come close to
closing on a Manson GO gauge.

I have heard that my Manson 5.45 gauge is off too...but my Clymer 7.62X39 seems to be fine.

Do you have any links to the specs? At least I could measure them then.

I don't have them handy, but the lady at Mansons Reamers can give them to you on the phone....or I can bring them to B-fest.

Well, thanks guys. I guess I'll have to bite the bullet so to speak and get in touch with manson.
