Hey everyone,

While I love the fireballs my little 104UR throws, sometimes I think I'd like to tame that a bit in case I decide to shoot in low light or use it as a bedside gun. What would be a recommended device? I usually shoot it with no muzzle device or sometimes with the 104 booster, which still lights up my life.

Pics because, well, we all like pics.

Yes, but I'm being a stubborn asshole and not wanting to wait however long for one. I should though, I plan on adding another AK in 5.45

If you can find one, check out the TSS Fyrestryke.  They make it for both 24mm and 14mm.  I have both.  Got them from AK-Stuff.com a while ago.

Thank you, I'll check them out.

bulgy 4 piece and/or a suppressor has been the better of the options I've tried.

You can put a 74 brake on there and get bigger fire balls if ya want.

Manticore night-shroud, best non brake I’ve found for the 24x1.5 threading.

Post a WTB ad on the EE here and AKfiles. Think I snagged mine for $45 iirc.



The Krebs unit is nice too.

Suppressor is always good option.

ETA: I’ll send you the jmac brake to do some fireball testing if you want to post pics just send it back when your done.

ETA2: they make this now, looks neat.

I'll DM you my address!

BTW, I love the Galil, I hope they import more so maybe I can grab one at a decent price.

my "krink" when I put on 74 brake on it. Notice the concussion blew out the back of my jacket.

I keed, stupid cat......

That is a great pic! I always get a crowd when I take mine to the range, loud as hell and people like the fireballs, although I did have a guy next to me ask if I wouldn't mind not shooting it as it was scaring to the two young girls that were shooting for the first time.

on it's way!

it's a brutal brake, very effective but loud, and that's why it's not going back on the 105

On the 74 clone, it works well.

I am seriously thinking about getting one of these for my PAP M92 & 85. Should control fireballs & loud noises quite well!

If you're not going to suppress definitely get the Bulgarian 4 piece. You get the advantage of a brake but it directs the blast forward which reduces obnoxicity to the shooter and also acts as a really good flash suppressor

I say go the suppressor route myself but it's not necessarily better, just different, and for many people the additional cost and hassle may not be worth it. Like any hobby you have to decide if the money is worth it for the net effect. I like it but like I said it's not necessarily better, it's just different

IMO, the 4 piece is the best all around solution for an AKSU unless you have a need for suppression

This is probably my favorite non suppressed, non night vision AKSU setup

Yeah, I don't really have a desire to suppress this one, I do have a suppressed SBR AR 11.5" that has nightstand duties but I much prefer to run un-suppressed mainly because I want the gun to stay light and maneuverable. A couple places I check are out of stock on the 4 piece Bulgy so I'll just have to keep looking.

BTW, your set-up looks rad! I'm waiting on the RS regulate hand guard to come back in to add to mine.

I’ll give a +1 to the Bulgarian 4-piece design and a dishonorable mention to this annoying bastard, the Arsenal KR-017.

My 106UR came with one. 5.56 out of short barrels is already loud but it really amped it up several levels. You can feel it in your sinuses. Everyone around me cleared out after a magazine.  Swapped it for the 4-piece after that one trip. It’s possibly the most useless thing Arsenal US ever designed.

Yeah, that looks like fun.

Does the Bulgy 4-section brake cut down muzzle jump?

I have a lighweight AR 7.5" I'd like to compensate but a muzzle brake (it works) however it literally throws redirected burning powder onto my forearm.
Link Posted: 1/4/2021 8:15:59 AM EST
It does, but mostly due to weight.
Link Posted: 1/4/2021 9:40:13 AM EST
anyone run a bulgy 4pc on a 105?

If everyone is buying beer cans I want one.

Link Posted: 1/4/2021 10:01:33 AM EST
I've put mine on my 105, its not bad, it just looks off. I keep the 105 cone on mine and run the 4 piece on the AKSU

It also effects the balance that the 105 is so famous for IMO.

Ok, after starting with a new employer this week, I was finally able to make it to the range today.
The JMAC that Fin sent me, is freaking LOUD! 😂 I quickly had a crowd and you could feel the blast standing several feet behind whoever was shooting it (I let people shoot if they want, it’s a crowd pleaser). Not much as far as fireballs go.

And here is a pic with the stock booster, way less blasty but the bigger fireballs. 😁

We are on opposite ends of 285.  I was hoping there'd be someone else close by with cool firearms.

Awesome 104!

I hear ya! I'm not opposed to meeting up half way at some point, not sure where to go inside the perimeter though.

Hey Fin, I sent you a DM but for some reason I can't see my "sent" folder so not sure if it actually went through. I need your address so I can send back your brake.
