I’d bet they’re the old gm with all the dimensional problems. If you can’t find a good or virgin Romy barrel, use one of the newer aoa barrrls

They cost a little more but AK Builder has a really nice barrel for the Romanian RPK and AoA has one made to their spec by Green Mountain also very nice. I have used both and been happy. Those Paratrooper RPK's are really nice kits. Have you picked a receiver yet?

I have been using Childers Guns receivers for my RPK's and been really happy, I may use a ReCreator Blanks next for my paratrooper. They both make them without magwell dimples.

Yeah I was gonna comment on that the other day, but got distracted and forgot to--the price had me suspecting they were the older GM barrels on which there are a few known issues, including the small RSB journal you found out about. I'd send it back if you can and go with one of the newer barrels AOA had (if they're still available).

AoA has plenty of the correct GM chrome lined RPK barrels at this time, they are nice.

I can knurl it, or maybe make a Tabuk barrel out of it would be longer than original for the price it not a bad deal.
