    I'm sure any number of local barrel manufactures would be keen to sell you something.

    bit more info would help...

    barrel length, twist rate, profile, intended use, budget etc.

    you can post a WTB thread in the buy and sell area on here, talk to your local gunsmith or to one of the NZ barrel manufacturers or importers...

    also, where in the country are you ? if you are in Welly I have a spare TF UM 32 inch 10 twist you can have a look at.

    Thanks guys, its for a long barrel AK (7.62x39) project so doesn't have to be anything fancy, 1:9 - to 1:10, min 650mm long and unprofiled so I can turn the journals to suit, not stainless so I can blue it to match the rest of the rifle.

    Have asked around but nothing really suitable or no reply from some.

    Ideally I'd want something like this..

    But yeah shipping is the problem

    But are you going to make it a 7,62x39 or a 30x39?
    Beware of using the old target barrels with tight bores, they copper foul a lot with .311 projectiles!

    Very good point, if I couldn't find a blank, the plan was to hunt around for a suitable .308 barrel to turn down.
