I'm looking to swap out my AMD65 front end for a pistol front end with the shortened gas tube, etc. I really like some of the complete builds I've seen, but I'd like to just get the front end.
Thanks

I don't believe anyone sells just the front end, shortened or otherwise. Most folks here are cutting their barrels down for the pistol builds. Gunco website has a lot of info on building pistols. If you ask around, you might find someone here or at gunco who would be willing to cut your AMD barrel down. But if I was you, I would save the AMD for an original build, as they are getting to be real expensive to find. Get a real cheap $99 Romy kit and build that into a pistol.

Some one has some pistol part kits a week or so ago. I think is was DPH Arms, but I can't find them on their site now however.

I knew I should have bought one when I saw it!

DPHArms did list them, $390 for a complete pistol kit (minus receiver). I don't see them listed now though. I read that many are going with the Romy kits and cutting them down. I beleive that's what DPHArms was doing to his kits.

i'd do what he said, an AMD kit is getting rarer and rarer.

Droog over at gunco does pistol front ends, he'll cut the barrel down recrown and shorten the gas tube for around 75 bucks shipped, I'm gonna have him do one for me i just havent gotten to that project yet. McM

This used to be a ak74 barrel first time chopping a barrel myself. Still got a long way to go. Not so hard if you have a few good tools. - Zap

I don't know about reliability but check gunbroker they usually have a couple of pistol ready kits, most I have seen were made from romanian kits.
