So, I had some spare AK parts lying around that wouldn't sell. Decided I might as well take Dad's old Wasr and have some fun with it. So, I cleaned it up a bit. Cut off the old gas block, and front sight post. Added a Venom tactical front sight-gas block combo. Sleeved the barrel with some filament wound carbon tubing, and added magpul accessories. I think it turned out pretty good. Although, I wish I had a good spare trigger lying around. I'll get to that, eventually.

Ordered the tubing form Rock West Composites. Dimensions are 0.601 x 0.70. No epoxy. Just sleeved it over the barrel. Fit perfectly between the FH and the new gas block at about -4 inches long. Even used the length to properly time the FH.

Thanks. Will do. Although, I figure if they are good enough for Rifle Dynamics/Jim Fuller, they should be good enough for anyone...

Agreed.
