AK Bulged Trunnion Barrel Removal / Install Tool (Jaws & Bolt Plate Only)


In stock

SKU: YGT011 Category: Product ID: 5306


This kit contains the Jaws and Bolt Plate which are necessary to convert your standard AK Barrel Removal/Install Tool (AKT010) into the Bulged Trunnion Barrel Tool (YGT010). The threaded rods, nuts, brass ram, and driving bolt are common between the two kits and not included. If you do not own or are not purchasing a standard AK Barrel Instillation/Removal Tool you will need to purchase the full Bulged Trunnion Install/Removal Tool kit (PN: YGT010). (This tool allows your AK Barrel Install/Removal tool to work on rifles such as the bulged trunnion Yugo, RPK, and if you purchase 3/8-16 x 36″ threaded rods you can use it with the PSL.). This kit consists of the following parts: Left and Right Trunnion Retaining Jaws and Bolt Plate. (The PSL, RPK, and Yugoslavian AK are examples of bulged style trunnions.)

Instructions – Barrel Removal/Installation Tool


  • Threaded rods (3/8-16 x 24″) can be purchased as an add on or the threaded rods can be purchased from most hardware and home improvement stores
  • If using this tool with a longer barrel such as a PSL you will need to purchase 3/8-16 x 36″ threaded rods. We do not offer threaded rods this long but they can be found in most home improvement stores
  • The ideal interference fit between the barrel shank OD and trunnion bore ID is .0005″ to .001″ (.0015″ is the maximum interference fit) A larger interference fit will make barrel installation difficult and could damage the barrel
  • The front lips of the jaws are for location purposes. The pockets in the jaws are for rivets clearance. These features are not intended to hold the receiver/trunnion during barrel removal or insertion
  • Always use Extreme Pressure grease on all threads and moving parts to prolong tool life

Note: This tool is the bulged barrel tool and is used for only on AK rifles with a bulged trunnion. Depending on which trunnion you are working with you must use the corresponding version of the Barrel Removal / Install tool.
