Where can I get 7.62 headspace gages?
 
I am wanting to find a vendor who has 7.62 NATO headspace gages for minimum and maximum and not .308 Winchester. Does anyone know of a company that makes or sells such gages? My searches seem to be turning up only .308

I want to build up my Navy 7.62 Mk2Mod1 barrelled receivers but I really don't want to judge headspace off a .308 gage.

Thanks
ERnie

7.62 NATO 'GO', 'NO-GO', and 'FIELD GAUGE' can be ordered from Pacific Tool & Gauge. I don't believe they stock any as they make them on order. They are accurate gauges and well made.

Clymer will also make them to whatever spec you want.
I ordered a 7.62 field from them to check a couple of the Italian 7.62 shortened barrels.

LRB has one listed on Gun Broker.

Affirmative. They have a USGI field test bolt listed at $265. These are handy and may do the job.

I checked with Clymer directly last week (they are not far from me) and was told that (1) they are not currently making 7.62 NATO gauges and (2) they aren't accepting special orders either. Maybe, if enough of us contact them and request these gauges, they will re-consider. Also, does anyone know Orest well enough to ask if he will put in an order for a quantity of them that will get Clymer to make them available through the estore? Clymer's contact info is as follows:

I got mine right here on estore. Clymer106 and 1203 7.62 NATO. I like the green for go and red for no go. They are also notched for the ejector and marked CMP. That always counts for something. They are listed there now and if you click on the description, you will see an nice photo that even shows 7.62 NATO. What could be easier.
