Hey CAMPY,
I am in the middle of sealing a deal on a Norinco 84S non-folder and I was wondering if the .223 weapon makes a good candidate for a 5.45 conversion.
What are the problems associated with conversions like this? I know the Chinese barrels are smaller in diameter than the bulgarian barrel (the trunnion journal)

lay it on me... good idea or bad?

I want to convert the Norinco 84S to a triangle folder in 5.45 cal. using a Bulgarian kit..

Seal the deal. I just did the same thing a month ago. Since the Norinco front trunion has the serial number, it is not removed and the Bulgy barrel is turned down to fit the Chinese trunion.

CAMPY, which of our noble smiths would you recommend to do this?

and ... the plot thickens! Im psyched now!

Campy.. I would approach the barrel conversion as this. Turn down the barrel to match the Trunnion on the 84s... Now saying that, explain the smaller lugged bolt thingy to me and how it relates to the lugs on the 84s trunnion..

show some pics of that conversion Raptor!! We need to see that man..

What I meant was that I just bought a Norinco 84S. I am trying to decide who to send it to for a Krink conversion. The method I stated was the scenario mentioned by Troy Sellars of InRange C2. I am trying to find out which method works best, enlarging the trunion hole or turning down the barrel.

Norinco 84s transformed into Bulgarian AKS-74. Every question you had earlier is answered in the picture. Built originally by The 4 Seasons Gunsmith...and made operational by Troy sellars of In-Range.

Thanks for that crucial info campy...So one of the parts that I will have to get is a Romanian AK74 bolt. (writes that down)

Fistpoint, could you install a Bulgarian side rail mount on that baby and still have the stock fold correctly?

How is the mag-jiggle in that AKS-74? I have heard on here that the .223 rifle recievers make great conversion doners for a 5.45 but mag-jiggle is a concern with me.
