    I just finished building an amd-65. I was going to test fire it before parkerizing and was told it is very important to check the headspace before test firing. Does anybody have a set of gauges they're willing to check my rifle with or let me borrow them? I'll pay you to if you'ld like. Does anybody know of a way to do this without gauges? I'm in the gresham area and would appreciate any help or input you have. Thanks

    I have 7.62 NOGO gauge. You can use it if you like, I used it in conjunction with a live round.

    If I recall you are supposed to strip the bolt completely to check the headspace, some people will say if the kit is "all matching" you don't need to check but that is up to you.

    Send me your address and I can put it in the mail, on your honor to send it back.
