    I'm sure this has been beat to death, but I can't find any threads on it. I found some AK-74 parts kits available at Atlantic Firearms, no barrel. How hard are these to build? Any special tools besides basic household tools? I've changed a few things around on ARs before, but that's the extent of my gunsmithing knowledge. Anything I need to know about this?

    You need a press a 10 ton plus adapters to press in the barrel you will have to headspace the barrel as you don't have a barrel matched to the bolt, in other words not worth the effort with the kits today especially if you only build one or two.

    Thanks, Warhog. I didn't realize it took that big of a press to set the barrel in! :wow: :shocked:
