I finally did some real gunsmithing. I needed a new barrel for my 7.62x25 ak conversion since my modded ppsh barrel sucked so I cut down a .308 1919 barrel to fit. I just got my reamer from clymer and rechambered the barrel last week. My new barrel is much better, rnds fit the chamber better and don't stick, I'm really happy with it. I've built a lot of ak's and stuff but never considered that gunsmithing, but this is real gunsmithing and I'm proud to have done it.

I'm crying about what you did to that 308 barrel :(

Workmanship looks top notch

I know, but I had 5 barrels that cost $40 ea. and when they last 30,000 rnds or so I'll never be able to afford that much .308 unless I hit the lottery. I hopefully have a source to more barrels at that price and if so, I'll make 10 more.

I feel accomplished after changing a front sight base on an AR so naturally, I'm impressed.

One gathers that you have more than a file and channel-lock pliers at your disposal.

I'll be doing much the same soon for a 7.62x25 AR build.

Work looks nice!
