I had my CAI AK74 re-barreled with the correct 5.45x39 barrel recently.

Is there any market for a take off CAI 5.56 AK74 Barrel, other than a tomato stake?

TIA

Was that the 556 in a 5.45 barrel tantal or just a low end barrel? all I can think of if a 5.45 barrel not 556 is a cheep beater barrel or maybe a cut down project ..So not much money

The take off barrel is a 5.56

The cost of rechambering it to 5.56 to match the bore would eat up any savings. The only potential customer would be someone building a Beryl clone.

This lad made a flute out of an old gun barrel and bits:
