Tried looking on the net for some couldn't find what I'm looking for. Looking for a pic especially of the MOUNTS or brackets.

The GP-30 actually clips onto the bayonet lugs of the the AKM and the AK-74.

Here we see a GP-25 which is pretty damn similar.

In the following photos, we will look at GP-30's.

They actually latch on pretty easily. On the front right side, is a little push button that releases the latch. It latches on to the rear bayo lug and onto the handguard retainer.

Well, the barrel diameter is 30MM. How are you supposed to fit 37mm in there? Besides, they are muzzle loading. The barrel can be removed, but that would involve taking it off the rifle.

I did see one for sale in Switzerland that was in 12ga. No idea how they did that one.

We need rapidfire to make these for us. 37mm would be a bonus, with a little re-engineering.

Here's your chance, well supposedly in Oct. I wouldn't mind having one of these. I would like to know the true legal stance on the importation of a DeAct.

Someone posted on AK-47.net a letter from the ATF reference the deactivated GP30s that come via England. Basic idea was that it was a NO-GO. One of the reasons was the US-Russian arms agreement.

To make it a breech loader would require a major redesign. To remove the barrel, you basically have to hit a latch, and twist the barrel around. This would involve taking it off the rifle, as the rear of the mount is on the trigger assy, and the front is on the barrel assy. The barrel doesnt slide foward like a 203, or break open like a shotgun or M79.
