    Thank ya sir. Still iffy on the stock. More range time with it will help me decide I'm sure.

    I rapid fire my Saiga .223, still feel no need. I'm sort of thinking it's more to look "Tanti-cool". I could be wrong.

    Agreed!! I've always liked the dragonov stocks like that, but that's me.. It's not my gun and I'm always one who feels he who owns it is welcome to do whatever he wishes with is guns or whatever he owns.. :)

    lol everyone is quoting me. :)

    However well you shoot fast now without one, you will shoot just as fast but have a tighter group with one. (and you may actually shoot a bit faster as well as you can stay on or get back on target faster)

    Sort of like with shooting with iron sights vs with a red dot.

    A red dot may not make someone shooting with iron sights a better shooter but it will make them a faster shooter concerning getting hits on target.

    Sorry I've been AWOL. I've been extremely busy as of lately. Upon further inspection the barrel has no threads nor a cap. After some time with the rifle, I think I'm actually ok with that. A brake would add the the looks and might help me stay on target when firing quickly, but it's not something I'll lose sleep over. I could probably add one myself if I wanted to or take it to a gunsmith and have it added but I think it's good for now. I put a Leapers bipod and Tri rail on it and I was actually pretty impressed with the quality of these items considering their low price. I know people hate on them for being cheap, but both items are made very very well.

    That's because it's in a little poodleshooter caliber lol A good brake makes quite a difference on a 7.62x39 AK

    My Bulgarian AK74 came with the Zig-Zag muzzle brake that helps with the recoil & muzzle rize. The recoil is so light that my girl friend loves to shoot it.
    It is called Zig-Zag because of the Laser cut Zig-Zags coming from the inside of the muzzle.

    The only warning is that it is loud!

    The muzzle device on mine does all that, and it also supports a sound suppressor :)

    Glad you got it worked out. For your thread pitch some of the best brakes for the money are the 74 style, tapco will be the most available for your threads, but there used to be a better one out there with "Z" cuts instead of half moon cuts, but it's been a long time since I've seen one.
