AK Barrel Tools For The Discriminating Craftsman
The photograph to the left is an example of what I sell for the safe disassembly and assembly of all Kalashnikova variants. These tools are the pressing plates, sets of pressing tubes, barrel push-back and push-out tools, and pin pushers and press ram adapters. Just refer to the tab above named “AK Barrel Assembly Tools” and select what you need from the drop-down menu and then send your request to me via Email at Robert.Forbus@robertforbus.com and I will return with availability and pricing.
I know that I should not need to mention this, but I will do so anyway. All of the tools that I sell require a significant amount of force to fulfill their task and there is always a hazard of a tool shattering or suddenly flying from a press. At a minimum please wear shatter-resistant eyewear, a.k.a. safety glasses, goggles, or faceshield when using any of these tools.
How Do You Order Tools From Me? I am not set up for credit cards at this time – maybe someday. I do accept personal cheques, money orders, and PayPal as long as it is paid as “Goods & Services”. Generally speaking; unless the item is a custom tool or machine part I do not require any payment up front.
I usually have everything that I sell in stock but many of the items I sell are produced in run groups from four (04) to forty (40) parts and I occasionally may be out of an item or a component of an assembly and have them in the work schedule. I can give you a fairly accurate ready date barring emergency or contract work that takes me temporarily off premises. When you to write me as a new customer; please give me your first and last name because I build/edit a job folder for everyone.
I have isolated certain tools by the rifles they are designed for. If you are not 100% sure of what you need; you can send me an email with your questions or for a much quicker response you can call me at 615 390 5645 any day any time. In a typical day I receive about three-hundred (300) email messages and it takes time to get though them.
