mike if you are only going to do one ak build then you only need headspace gauges for 7.62x39 you will need a GO gauge and a NO GO gauge. You can do wihtout the GO gauge by using a factory cartridge(although not as precise as a Go gauge it wil tell you if you at least hae enough headspace to chamber a round.) The No go gauge tells you when the chamber is developing too much headspace atlthough a rifle with slightly more than that still might be safe to fire

If you are not taking the barrel off of the trunion it should have proper headspacing already. No gauges needed.
