A friend of mine has started building AKs from flats. He has virgin bbls and needs head space gauges. Also was asking what would be the best way to drill for the bbl retention pin. Better to drill or machine... Also where to get hs gauges - quality/price.

Any input is appreciated.

IIRC, Tyrone used a round a Wolf, and a round of Wolf with masking tape to build his.

Brownells with C&R discount.

I would have bought a set, but they were out when I wanted it.

eta. CS223 is the man to talk to about drilling/machining, as he performed some impressive post KB surgery on my Krink.
