    Gunny, I'm looking for tritium/fiber optic combination like TruGlo makes for the Glock and other hand guns. Do you know of any made for the AK?

    I called bemeyers.com and spoke with Matthew about their Flash Terminator that was shown to us by Link's posting. Anyway, he said that at present they don't make them for the AK-47. I asked if they could custom make them and he said , as long as we pay the engineering time which is about $100 a hour and may take a couple hours....yes it could be done. Anybody interested in pooling together to get these made for our AK's????

    I'm interested and it would probably count as a 922(r) compliant part.

    Question: Does the version they do have work on AR's? I have an Amory USA AK with the 1/2" x 28 threads (supposedly same as AR's).

    AKs and Glocks, and now Gas Piston ARs - 'Nuff said.

    Yes, absolutely, although I'd limit my individual contribution for "engineering time" to no more than $25. Did he say how much the standard model for the AR costs? Any discounts for volume, as in "group buy"?

    Also, when you say "fit an AK", do you mean the 14x1mm left-hand threads on the AKM, or the newer 24x1.5mm right-hand threads on the front sight block of AK74 and AK100 series rifes? Reason I ask is that my Arsenal SA M-7 uses the 24mm front sight block and that is the version I want.

    I'd also like to have a notch cut in the end to fit the spring-loaded detent on the front sight block. (FYI: Smith does not include the notch on their 24x1.5mm AK flash hider.) Here's a pic of an AK74-style brake and front sight block to show you what I'm talking about:

    Yes, see this link:

    No price listed, however.

    A few years back I bought a couple of AK flashiders that were birdcages (like the AR15/M16) from Sarco. Don't know if they still carry them or not. They worked well to hide the flash, and cut the muzzle climb a bit.
    Several companies have made the AK-74 style hiders for the AKM's and AKS's. Check Shotgun News for sources.

    The AK74-style brakes actually increase noise and muzzle flash. They are compensators rather than flash suppressors. (See discussion above.) The issue is finding a Vortex-style flash suppressor that will fit the AK74-style front sight block.

    Of course. My bad. Typed before thinking.
    I don't know if it's okay with Gabe to post another sites web address here, but there is a company that has the 24x1.5 mm muzzle devices, as well as muzzle and thread adaptors for most everything else AK related. Just yahoo or google up the words, "AK parts Delta Utah Hi-Vel" and it'll come up. Better to call them if you want something unusual, as sometimes they have one-of-a-kind things in stock, and don't post them on the website.

    I'll have to call them on Monday. Their website does not list anything related to the AK besides a US Army operator's manual.
