Yea, I have bought many of these style kits. Both in used condition and brand new.

They are great mags and a really great price also.

I've bought one of those sets from Northridge. It was all in perfect new-in-wrap condition and at a really good price. Shipping was faster then my other Northridge orders too.

I got a set from them as well. Mags looked brand new to me, certainly not worn at all. Mag pouch smelled like some commie wiped his ass with it but oh well.

Took like 4 and 1/2 weeks to get the stuff though. That's pretty lousy nowadays. Maybe they've improved...

I ordered a mag kit from them a while back. It was in excellent condition, great deal. It did take a while to get it, but it was worth the wait.

Just grabbed two sets a few weeks ago. New in the wrappers, great deal. Shipped pretty quick too compared to previous orders.

They did smell a little funny, but i've never smelled commie ass...

Guys over at Battlerifles are saying that Northridge is "temporarily" being shut down by ATF for some kind of investigation.

I recently bought one of these kits from them and have a question. In the cleaning kit that is with the pouch there is a silver cylindrical device that looks sort of like a muzzle break but it has no vents and is threaded on one end and the other end has a slot like a flat head screw cut into it. It is machined very well and is heavy. What the hell is this thing? It's bugging me no end not knowing what the hell this thing is LOL Please clear up the mystery. btw I took some great digi pics but can't get them to load here.

That's probably the blank adapter you have there green.

Yeah, after posting that I realized it might be a blank/greneade adapter since the muzzle end is smaller than a bullet.
Link Posted: 5/5/2003 10:07:51 PM EDT
Definitely a blank adapter.

The question I have is for what ??

Having seen various 7.62 blank adapters, the one that comes with the E.German mag sets is an enigma. Appears to match the 5.45 designation but 14x1?

Someone please enlighten me.

In the foreign AK book, There is a picture of a shorty East German AK-74 folder ( page 54, MPi-AKS-74NK ), it appears to have a small flash hider similar to a M16. It looks way to small to have 24 x 1.5mm threads, I'd bet it was 14 x 1mm and maybe the blank adapter was for those...

I could be wrong lol....

Went to the Tulsa, OK big gun show Northridge was there, they had boocoo mags for 47 and 74, I bought a 4 mag set, came with pouch, cleaning kit for 25US, could not find a cheaper price for those 74 red mags, they look cool on a wood 74 and they go BANG, not one misfire, all came apart for maint. I will buy some more.

MPi-K is correct. The BFA in question is for the MPi-AKS-74NK "Shorty". It is indeed threaded 14 x 1 LH.

Could it also be for the RPK-74?? In the "AK book" the Russian RPK-74's pictured have a small birdcage that appear to have 14 x 1 threads as well.

I would assume the E. Germans made a RPK-74... I wonder how similar it was to the Russian model.
