I've heard the Krinkov 4-Piece Flash hider eliminates flash really well!!

Would it suppress flash efficiently on a 5.45x39 The only ones I've seen are for 7.62x39.........., the threads are the same as my Bulgy AK-74 (14mmx1.5) so it should fit fit ok..., but I'm not sure if it would do it's job???

Those POS AK-74 muzzle brakes have a blinding flash that is totally unacceptable in my book!!!!!

Like you really need a brake on a 5.45x39 anyway!!

Muff

1) The krink flash suppressor was made for 5.45 i believe, for the short barreled AKS-74U.
2) The 74 style brake isnt a thing of wonder because it reduces recoil like a typical brake, its popular because it reduces muzzle climb, and its very good at it. I tried my 74 with and without the brake and recoil was about the same, but with the brake it was almost as if the rifle pushed itself down. It would rise, and fall with every shot, because of the brake. Follow up shots were much faster, so i can only imagine the difference it makes on full auto fire. When you consider that this was its purpose, it is far from a 'POS'.

If you want a flash hider the krink may be a good way to go, i'm not 100% positive though, so i'll let others comment on that. I just wanted to comment on those two points.

Yea...., you're probably right about the muzzle climb control properties, as is it's intent!! I guess I went a little over the top with the "POS" statement....., but I was shooting it this evening in low light and between the muzzle flash & muzzle blast of my 74 Brake I just decided I'd had enough!!! I'm personaly much more concerned with flash suppresion than muzzle rise on my rigs!! Until they come up with a muzzle devise that does both, I'll stick with a FH!!

I too am under the impresion the Krinkov 4-Piece was oniginally made for the 5.45x39 Krink's.., but the only ones I've seen for sale denote: "7.62x39"

Anyone know where I can find a 5.45 holer???

I think this would be more effective as it's more of a true flash hider.
If you can find one, as of right now K-var is sold out.

The main function of the AKS-74U muzzle device was to give more reliable function.
As it was intended to act like an expansion chamber. The cuts are there so you can use
your cleaning rod to take it off or put it back on.

The regular AK-74 muzzle brake does what it is meant to. If it didn't, the Russians would've
stopped using it a long time ago.

I just looked at k-vars site, and it does say 7.62x39. Weird. I've never seen one on a 7.62 AK, but maybe they're saying that simply because it can be used with 7.62. Maybe the opening is large enough to work with 7.62 despite the fact it was made for 5.45.

Could very well be. The Bulgy FH No1Here just posted Denotes that it works with 5.45 & 7.62x39

I guess maybe the're a "One size fits all" kinda deal.

To the best of my knowledge, all the krink brakes are 7.62 sized. Including the ones for the 5.45 guns. Never heard of one being made for one caliber or the other. (I have 2, one on my AR, one on my krink) The Krink brake does suppress the flash pretty well. However its mainly a gas trap that helps reliablity while cutting down the flash and sending all the noise downrange. Not perfect, but definatly the best muzzle device out there for krink sized platform. (short of a real sound suppressor) Just my 2 cents. ru4freedom has it right. One size fits all. On a full size 74 I'd recommend a flash suppressor that was pictured above.

About the other style Krinkov FH (the one that looks like it has the cone on the end) How well do they work for elimating flash??
