Default 74 pattern 5.56 barrel

Anyone know where to source a bulgy 74 pattern 5.56 barrel other than AKBuilder?
They keep saying they need to make more but never have new stock, current circumstances not included, (c19).

I do not.

I can say it makes for an easy build just finished one and it went together flawlessly.

Worth the wait if you ask me.

The other thing to ask is if they will be making more, AK-74 kits have dried up.

You could try a WTB ad in the marketplace.

kvar barrel 23mm 5.56. Turn the journal down to 22mm or use an aims74 breech block. Use ak74 Fsb, the muzzle threads would be under the front sight base and hidden. The rear sight base is a milled profile fyi. It's 18.5mm iirc but it is in fact milled.

I may have something for you. I believe it's about 80% finished.
Needs chamber and extractor relief, as well as handguard slots cut. But it is '74 profile.
Sending you a PM.

I am in the same place as you are. I have a plum Bulgy Kit I want to finish. Just need the barrel. I have emailed and talked with ak builder and they said non in stock or soon.

Wonder if enough of us contact them they could do a run?
