    Looks like numerich was out of ak74 bolts. There are specific AK forums that might be able to help out. It used to be kits were the way to go, but now kits are very expensive.

    Haha, how ironic that someone on warriortalk says "there are AK forums for this"

    It is not ironic at all. More a statement of fact. The statement was:

    Yes because the AK preceded the M4 on the race to the bottom...a place we choose not to go. Simple that.

    I will tell you this, after having seen a few home-made AK rifles fire out of battery (first indication of a race to the bottom is the DIY community) - take it to someone who will do it right. Unless you are a former Combloc armorer, or have built these for a living...you don't know what you don't know. Headspacing a bolt is not like an M4 with a drop in BCG. Or ignore what I have said because its not what you wanted to hear...it really won't matter to me...but it might to your face and eye sight.

    Take your rifle to Rifle Dynamics (Jim Fuller...another guy with gave his start) and pay him to headspace it and make it run right. No it won't be free...but it will be right.

    That is all...drink the water or do not...matters not to me.

    Unfortunate but true. I still love my AKs, though.

    Any standard AK74 bolt will fit in 5.45, but it will require headspacing. That`s not a job most people can just do at home, and it will require a trip to a competent builder. If you really need it, PM me and I can put you in touch with some more excellent builders.
