Anyone know if the East German 545 or 223 barrels on the trader will work with the Bulgarian pattern rifles? I've been thinking of getting one in 223 to put back for my AK74 as a spare. Do the flats on the barrel match up with the various barrel blocks I'd be swapping over (RSB, FEB, gas block) when properly installed (does the EG use the same type of bolt, or does everything get set back like a SAR3?), about trunnion size 22 or 23mm?.

I don't think you can go 5.45 to .223 without a whole different receiver Ect. . regardless of the country of origin.

If you want to replace the Bulgarian 5.45 barrel with a EG 5.45 barrel that is OK. The only issues may be having cooperating sizes on the various barrel locations. This issue can crop up regardless of the origin of the barrel.
