Default AK 47 FRONT TRUNNION PRESS FIXTURE barrel support

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/Vie...Item=209203102

For people who are getting into building AKs and buying various jigs, I would suggest you get this jig for when you press your barrel in. It is a lot more stable than the screw one from AK builder. I have used both and prefer the one I linked a lot more. Messing with the screws and trying to get the correct contact points is sometimes a PIA.

The linked barrel support is quite nice; it's identical to the one I use.

It comes from http://www.gunthings.com/galil.htm

I like to avoid the press 100% when installing any barrel.

I bought Tothtools Barrel installer and after upgrading some parts it pushes in some serious tight barrels without complaints. fractions of a MM at a time when needed too. No "*poing* Oops. Too far. Push the barrel back out some."

However I have been eyballing the Gunsthings one for emergency/odd ball trunion use.

How's it work? Looking at it, it looks like a fixture for a hydraulic press. Or does it perhaps use allthread bars?

Uses all thread bars down the sides to lock the driving plate solid. Worked fine until I upgraded the A-T to next larger size. Now it works great.

It is the same guy. Green Machine. I have a few of his tools. I like how his tools keep you from the bottle jack press AND generally gives you more pressure control thus, the desired finished product .

EDIT:

Here is a stock photo of it used as a pusher on a stub;

I have the same one, Z, and it's much easier than the AK-builder one. CSA, if you want to borrow it sometime, let me know, as it works for AK74's as well.
