i dont have one in front of me and need to compare lenths to another tube i got sitting here.

outside dimension of the tube ( removed from rifle ) is just a hair ( less than a 1/32) over 5 3/4 " thats with a tape measure as my child seems to have run off with my calipers

thank you very much. ive been trying to get the dimension on that tube all day.

is that an " exact " enough dimension ? I figure there is probably that much tolerance anyway ... but I can get my calipers and give you a better figure if you need ...

The gas tube off my SAR-1 fit on my AMD-63 build, and vise versa.

The AMD-63 uses a normal gas tube length.
The AMD-65 uses a shorter gas tube for use with the shorter 130mm gas piston. The AMD-65 shares this shorter gas tube with the Hungarian SA-85.

There were some, though not all, of the Hungarian SA2000M single-stack AKs that used the shorter gas tube also.
