AK47 Barrel Removing / Replacing
Using the Toth Tool Barrel Tool
Using a Shop Press
First you take out the barrel pin, then take the rifle to a press and use a soft metal rod to push the barrel out. Sounds easy and it really is a simple operation. Just be careful not to damage the barrel or trunion in the process.
What happens if the barrel is not headspaced to your trunnion?
– you can remove the barrel and add some weld to the incorrect channel for the barrel pin to fill it up a bit, then reinstal and redrill for the correct headspace
– you can headspace the barrel, then drill a larger hole for a new oversized barrel pin
