    Where were you 2 months ago when I was doing all this research?! Thanks for putting the most valuable points all in one place.

    Thanks for taking the time to write all that.

    Been a few months since somebody has posted something as informative and useful.

    Excellent post.
    This is what this board is all about.
    Some of us forget that.
    Thank you for the post and the reminder.

    Quick question:
    I've been wanting to get a flash hider to replace the standard slant brake.
    YHM makes a version of the Phantom for 7.62 AK's.
    It's an effective device for the AR15, is it just as effective in 7.62x39?

    They are illigetimate weapons that have no real purpose other than to attract retards to the gun community.

    Whenever we're talking about flash suppression it's more than just the device that contributes to it. Both ammunition selection and barrel length are big contenders in the fight.

    With that said, yes, a Phantom is going to certainly perform better than the standard [terrible, useless] slant brake.

    As usual, a most informative write up Dave. I especially found the iron sight and sling section of particular interest.

    Any mods reading this please sticky.

    Dave, concerning ammo selection what are your thoughts on ammunition that utilizes the Russian 8M3 projectile? Currently its being found in the TulAmmo 124 gr HP offerings. According to:

    . . .it has potential.

    I have met my goals of Hornady SST and now looking at some other options to "stack" my mags with.

    I know I've read it somewhere, but I can't find it now; how did you install a QD socket into the rear of your AK stock?

    While I'm not sure what the OP used here is a simple solution that includes instructions and all mounting hardware.

    Military Moron also has a write up floating around here about a sling adaptor on an AK buttstock.
