I am about half way through building my polish underfolders in 7.62x39 and am now looking towards new projects. I would like to build an AK-74 but I have a question on installing the barrel into the trunion. I will use the 1/4 inch all thread method on my polish 7.62s. What about the 5.45? Big hammer or pressing seems to be the only way I can see installing the 5.45 barrel? I do not like the idea of the big hammer and do not have a shop press. Is there another method that I am missing (requiring few tools)? Thanks.

I used a smaller threaded stock on mine as well. I snapped two pieces but finally got it in. I would tighten it down and tap on it with a hammer and tighten some more.
