Default 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

Note about dealing with Brownells, they have a strong customer satisfaction clause built into everything they do, as well as having a good tech support staff which now includes Sinclair.

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.

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:
