I recently bought a Savage Mod. 11G original chambered in .223 rem but it has a 5.45x39 barrel installed. The guy I bought it from have had some bad experiences with it like "slam fire" when closing the bolt, loose bolts etc. He is not interrested in fixing rifles so if they don't work, he dosen't like them or simply he has to many he parts with them.

Because he does not take the best care of his rifles and because I want to change the barrel between the 5.45 and the .223 I was wondering if you guys could recommend good headspace gauges for the 5.45x39.

I'm planning on reaming the .223 to a 5.56 NATO so if I could get the go and no go gauges from the same place that would be awesome.
