Default Beryl M762; is it possible?

this rifle has caught my eye recently. Components are basically a Tantal, but in 7.62x39

I have a set of extra Tantal barrel components collecting dust... So the question is?

Is is possible to turn a standard AKM barrel down to Tantal specs? Or will it be too thin?

These are the specs Im looking at;
....................RSB........HG...........GB.... .......FSB
Tantal...........680id.......661id........583id... ....559id
AKM barrel....723od......682od.......624od......585od

What do you think? Doable? I don’t have a lathe, so I’d have to send it out. I have a FB sporter barrel perfect for this

Do you think accuracy will be effected turning the barrel this far down?
