  1. So I do not have any pics yet but in the next day or two I will have some video (just shooting not a review or anything)

    On my range outing today I used

    2 different AK platform weapons, my Saiga 7.62 and my mini Draco.

    4 different magazines types 30rd Bulgy Waffles and the 30 rd Croats as well as 20rd Hungarian Tankers and the 20 rd "Asians" I had sets of four of each type of mag and reloaded the Croats and asians 3 times each

    I will not say anything about the Hungarian Tankers and the Bulgy Waffles they are both awesome

    The Croats did not fit in my Draco but performed flawlessly in my Saiga

    The 20 rd "Asians" fit in both and performed as good as the Hungarian Tankers

    Both the Croats and Asians are a skinnier metal at the feed lips and the front tab and back lug.

    I did not do drop tests, they are "surplus" so i didn't think i needed to, but i did do the "Iraqi reload" and there is no evidence of any damage or scuffing on either type.

    I am completely satisfied with the 20 rd Asians and if the Croats had fit the Draco I would have been completely satisfied with them. That being said, I will not use 30 rd mags in my Mini Draco, so I personally am fine with the Croats.

     

    Edit to add SLR rifleworks SR47 Muzzlebreak is awesome. I shot 60 rd without it then put it on and there was noticeable difference in both muzzlerise and felt recoil

    Tighten the die 1/4 turn on the adjuster screw, and try again! Do not go over 1/4 turn between test fitting!

    So I am about to look really Dumb but that is probably the case already. I have no idea what you are talking about? Everything i watched or read led me to believe that the 3 screws were to hold the die in the handle. Are they for adjusting something?

    Some dies are adjustable some are not.

    Is the one you have like this?

    nope definitely not


  3. So the 20rd tanker mags have dried up, but I found 20rd "Asian" (I assume they are Korean) steel surplus mags at CDNN. I have ordered a few and will post a follow up comparing them to the Hungarian Tanker Mags.

    These "Asian" mags were on sale this past weekend for $8.99 so I bit the bullet plus I needed some crush washers so why pay for shipping twice!

  5. So I threaded the barrels on my Saiga 7.62x39 and 2 SKS's
    I tried to put my Spikes Tactical Dynacomp on and it wouldnt thread down
    so i tried the M2 birdcage style off my mini draco and it fit as did my SLR Rifleworks SR47 and the standard slant style brake. The ST Dynacomp did not fit any of the 3 barrels i threaded yet it fit the mini draco, and all the other brakes fit all four barrel threads.
    ANY IDEAS?


  6. So I have bought a Spike's Tactical Dynacomp and an SLR SR47.

    I am considering one of these three

    this one looks like it is the base model

     

    http://damageindustriesllc.com/product/muzzle-brake-ak-47-rifle-14-1-lh-thread-ported

    this looks like the one above just with ports on top

     

    http://damageindustriesllc.com/product/tactical-crown-ak-muzzle-brake

    this looks like the previous one (with ports) just with a tactical crown spike thing

     

    anyone have any experience ot recommendations for a third muzzle brake


  7. I want to install a muzzle brake on my '08 Saiga and after seeing imarangemaster's recent post i have decided to do it. So I am thinking of going one of two ways. The first is replacing the FSB with a FSB that has a locking detent. My main concern here is making sure i dont cant the FSB. What all would I need to reinstall the FSB (I assume FSB and pins but anything else? Would this FSB work http://rifledynamics.com/collections/ak-gun-parts/products/front-sight-block, is there a better FSB to use, and where could i get some pins from? And Any advice, ideas, or threads on this?

    The second would be to do it the same way imarangemaster did his.

    Also since i am going to do this once i also have 2 SKS's i have decided that i will add muzzle brakes on as well.

    Has anyone here done this before?
