 I was wondering if there were any reasons to choose between the older "ban" and the new SA M-5s.  It appears the newer models have the 22mm threaded sight base, but it seems you are limited to an AK-74 brake for them.  Do the older "ban" SA M-5s have a muzzle device which can be now cut off to reveal 14mm threads?  It seems this would allow more options to try various brake and suppressor devices.

All SA M-5's come with a 14mm left hand thread ...

Atlantic arms shows an AK-74 with a 5.45 X 39 mag and 22mm FSB as a new SA M-5.  Auction arms shows a pic of an AK with a .223 waffle mag and what appears to be a 14mm muzzle device.  This picture is the same one as a GunsAmerica.com private sale of an old "ban" style SA M-5.  Can someone please cut through this Bravo Sierra and tell me what the deal is?   Does the old "ban " SA M-5 have threads under a muzzle device that can be cut off and used?

Only Arsenal Las Vegas makes the SA M-5, they are 5.56x45 and they "all" have 14mm threads, ban or no ban. The old ban style's muzzle break can be removed but it's a pain in the ass ...

Arsenal AK74's are 5.45x39 and are not SA M-5's, they are SLR's and have "24mm" threads, 22mm threading is found on Romanian rifles ...

The SA M-5's at Auction Arms are Arsenal Las Vegas in 5.56x45 ...
