Default Ak47 gas block w/bayo/sling attach/rod hole?

Have been searching for a standard size ak barrel "gas block" with bayo lug, with sling attachment and cleaning rod hole all in one,,i can't find one, it's for a build i am gathering parts for....is this part out there?
Seems like if it has a sling loop it's minus the bayo lug..
What am i missing here?
Thanks

I believe only the Chinese and Yugos are made with the bayonet lugs and sling loop, but their barrel thicknesses are different from a standard AKM as far as I know.

An AK47 has a gas block with a sling mount.
An AKM gas block has a gas block with bayonet lugs and the hand guard retainer has the sling mount.
An AK47 and an AKM use two different ways of mounting a bayonet and two different barrel diameters.
An AK47 does not use lugs on the gas block to mount a bayonet.
The Chinese and Yugos are their own breed. The Yugo and Chinese use the heavy AK profile not AKM profile.
What type of kit are you building?
Also, what are you considering a standard size barrel size?

I have an m72b1 kit, i am starting to gather parts and tooling for it...have a16"finned heavy barrel from akbuilder on the way.
Going to turn the barrel down under the hand guards for weight savings and from gb to fsb to a "standard" ak47 size,,,,, meaning if i can find a gas block with bayo and sling mount, that's what i would turn that journal down to.
On another post here "es" mentioned to get a m77 bayo lug,, which i have been looking for, to know avail...
There is one site,,dinzagarms sells an after market lug that may work...was hoping to find a gb that was all in one,, May be out of luck with that one...
Apex has a polish AK47 gb with sling mount but no sling loop..
And apex has a Bulgarian sling loop and no block. They probably would work together....
Just trying to figure it out as i go along..the m72 handguard doesn't make a good place to attach a sling.
If i am out of luck with an "all in one"then i guess the next step is the market place for a gb/sling mount.

The weight savings will be negligible. May be best to build it "as is". But just my .02 cents.

Are you stuck on using the m72 hand guards and finned barrel?
If not sounds like a yugo m70 barrel, rsb,handguards and hgr
Then turn barrel for akm gb and fsb

Or have fsb and gb turned for milled ak components and use that type bayou

Or have gb and fsb turned for akm components and use akm bayo and have the loop cut off a akm hgr and welded on m72 hgr

spent a while today thinking of putting on m70 front end,, but i want the fined barrel on this build so the short m72 guards are here to stay..
Been rummaging all over the net trying to find a Russian, polish or Bulgarian gb with sling loop with out any luck....
.
What i really need is a type 56 gas block,, has the bayo and sling loop all in one,,, no such luck so far..
Going to try the market place for a sling loop gb..
I know i will only save a few ounces turning the barrel down, but it's just part of making it"my build", something different.

Turning the barrel down to akm or ak dim for those respective gb ,fsb and bayo lug is really what a am wanting to do,,,,,, but i also need a sling loop on the gas block, or some how rig up a sling loop right behind the gas block, just haven't figured out how to do that......
You get a gb either with a bayo lug or a sling loop, not both, that i can find other then a type 56,
I have been researching how the bayo attached on an ak47, locking onto fsb,, but can't figure out how it's done,,,ive googled the hell out of that topic and get no straight explanations.

Thought about welding a bayo lug onto a sling loop gb,, but have no idea what the heat will do to the gb steel,,,, any one have any thoughts on welding onto a gas block??

An O-PAP or N-PAP pulled off (non grenade valve) GB is an option. It will have a remnant bayo lug that has been neutered.
Using a weld bead you can create the lug.

GB as seen in this pic>

Yes those gas blocks are not common and also the best gas block/lug source for a Tabuk DMR long barrel clone build.

Try this thread, he's got the NPAP parts. May have to dress the bayonet lug, ask him-
