I assume you are talking about the BT AK47?
The site says the combat barrel system is .692, which I assume the AK barrel is the same.
I'm using Recon balls from Wal-mart for the STOCK barrel and they are working great. Right now it is more accurate than the AK barrel.
In the AK, they seem like a tight fit.
Doing a fit test, some got stuck in the barrel...had to take a rod and push them out.
What balls are you using?
Need to find a ball suitable for the .692 bore.

im using spectrum from a local dealer...i'll try switching up...u lllike your stock barrel better than your ak barrel?

For firing these Recon balls...yes. It is pretty accurate with those.
I bought them on the recommendation of other MR1 owners.
We need to find the right size to match the AK barrels.
I would prefer something easy on the wallet and easily found.
Keep posting your findings
Here's a pic of my gun:
I moved the grip to the back of the barrel.
I also ordered a real AK magazine clip that I hope can be modded to fit over the stock piece. That will really help the look.
I may just make a new stock out of rod too.

I picked up some RPS Super Swirl yesterday and just shot some this morning.
These seemto be a good size for this barrel.
Dunham's Sports has them on sale.
$19.99 for 1000 originally $40
$9.99 for 500 originally $20
This is still a bit expensive, so I may check into some cheaper RPS products.
