Yes they will work, however EG barrels have a slightly different profile near the breach if I recall

The East Germans put a 3.5 degree x .515 taper on the trunnion journal. It is not necessary but it is desired by some.

What freak would make someone profile their barrels just like the East Germans did?

Many "freaks" who are my customers and insisted that their barrel looked correct.

Surely that was sarcasm... I don't know Techno well, but I have noticed he has an eye for detail!!

This was an inside joke between me and Obstreperous.

Both my 68 and 86 will be correctly profiled in the next few weeks. Anything I do, i do it 110%. Robert probably doesn't realize who I am, then he would remember I am one of the worst freaks.

Yes there are more freaks out there than people realize. If you have one of those beautiful EG kits it really does not cost that much more to put the taper on a Polish barrel if it needs threaded anyway. The same goes for the Russian relief cut.

I figured as much haha.

I guess I will have to have AoA send Obsteperous another polish barrel to properly profile for my beautiful 1970 EG kit!!

Here is what messed me up today. The fking original polish barrels were cut like the Russians. I am building my 68 today and it's making me nauseous.

It will be the only incorrecy profiled barrel I have so it will be ok.

Good to hear. I have a nice blued 68 Polish AKM kit as well with a barrel that Rforbus profiled and threaded a year or so back. Waiting until my skill level improves before tackling that, the EG or AIMS builds.
