The following is a list of reference dimensions for barrel and barrel components for those of you who want to use different components and different barrels on your builds.
All measurements were made as accurately as possible and should fall within + or - .001
.Some were made on stripped barrels and components and some were made on assembled rifles as I did’nt want to dismantle them just for measurements.Some were unobtainable,( as in not enough area to measure )All were taken from my personal rifles and kits. I will add to and update this list as I can and intend to post it on as many gunboard BIY forums as possible.

If you have suggestions for other dimensions related to the barrel group feel free to throw it out there. I've spent about 3 days on this and typed it all out on Word, and then copied and pasted it here and everything went to Shit . I had everything in nice straight columns and as soon as i pasted it to the reply box, everything went all Mumbo Jumbo.............. For the life of me i cannot figure out how to get everything back into straight columns and i'm tired of Muckin with it. So if anyone knows how, and is willin to straighten this up and make it look a little more professional, be my guest.
Here we go and happy building………………

Thanks,
it just bugs me that i can't keep them straight up and down like i had them in Word. I even printed them out and the stayed nice and straight. It must have something to do with margins or something. I'm still a "hunt and peck" typer, so it takes me awhile sometimes to do something like this. Maybe someone who knows how will volunteer to fix it someday.

I fixed this over on AKForum, too. What can I say? Uneven spacing bothers me, too. I've spent too much time as an admin assistant, I reckon. :unsure:

Hey man, thanks for the info! I was curious if you knew what size the barrel diameter around the Saiga 5.45(iz240) is at the FSB, not sure if they use the AK-74 barrel or not.
Derp?

When you say 'chamber outside diameter', is that measured at the spot where the barrel presses into the front trunnion?
Yes, that is my real name. I don't say anything here that I wouldn't say to your face, and I don't care what 'Big Brother' knows about my interests.

Real names on a forum cut down on flame wars.

Converted into Excel. At least for me. Maybe I can send it via PM.

But, the forum only lets me post it as a comma delimited text file.
