Howdy. I'm in the process of making an AK-104 clone out of a post-ban 7.62 gun using a gas block I got from K-Var. To be true to the Russian original I should use a Krinkov brake and am wondering if the US Krinkov brake sold by Global Trades is a legal post-ban part. I emailed Global about this but have gotten no response.

I plan on cutting the barrel at about 13 1/2 or 14 inches and then welding on the brake to give me an over length of 16 1/2 inches.

Thanks!

I believe it is a part you can put on your rifle. It is not classified as a flash hider.

The four piece device that looks like some kind of mini soup can is a flash suppressor, or flame extinguisher I believe they call it.

I have no proof that this is what the ATF thinks, but I have heard that it is classified as such.

Take it for what you will.

I was thinking of the AK-74 brake. The Krinkov flash hider dosen't do much hiding, but they say it's illegal, so it is. Even if it's made in the US, you can't use it, unless it has some kind of ATF aproval for it, like the Tapco STG-58 replacement for the Stole flash-hider.

So am I okay if I use a cone-style brake and drill some gas vent holes in it? Brownell's has one in their catalog that says it already has some gas ports in it.

Never mind. I got a Global Trades piece and they list it as 922r compliant.

How is the -104 conversion going? I am curious, cause I am attempting the same with a SAR-2.

Thanks!

The conversion is coming along nicely. I have cut the new barrel and have it installed and headscaped. I have the gas block in place and all that's left is to attach the muzzle brake. I want to make a spacer to fit between the gas block and muzzle brake so I don't have a step there and haven't quite figured out what I'm going to use yet. Then I need to attach the scope rail and refinish everything. I'll post some pictures soon.
