Could somebody please explain how to properly headspace an AK??? I've never heard of one exploding, but just wondering.

If you do not have the headspace guages, a spent shell casing and a small piece of a business card works well for a no-go guage. A local gunsmith taught me this trick.

Campy-how do you tell if the AK is already built?? for example-a few dudes go shooting with their VEPR's at the range, they come back and start to clean their guns. They then get their bolts and carriers mixed up, and don't know which is which??? what should they do??? where do you get an AK gauge set??

I'd be as giddy as a school girl to find where I can buy a field guage for a 7.62 x 39. And no brownells does not sell them only go and no-go.

Do you put the gage in and let the chaging handle go or what????
