Well, I got my slr-101 hicap back from ORF yesterday. Mike made a gas block/front sight combo by cutting, welding and perfectly blending the two. After that the barrel was shortened and an AMD brake was installed. Topped of by a moly-coat over parkerizing and it almost looks factory. I kinda copied this idea from a gun in the custom area at ak-usa's website. My photography skills are lacking as the pictures don't do this fine weapon justice, but you get the idea.

Nice rifle.

The tactical bungee sling is the bomb!

Very cool. How effective is that brake?

I bet it's loud as hell.

Thanks. I haven't shot it yet, just got it back yesterday so I can't comment on the brake. I've heard they're loud though. I might make it out tomorrow

About any brake that functions well will be LOUD.

That's one wicked looking brake on that thing! Makes me want one for my SAR-1.

There's always something good happening at ORF.

Great job! Very unique fsb/gas block set-up.

5subslr5, That brake looks like it may be as loud as my mini-y brake on my Bushy. Yes is it is very effective though.

My SLR-95 Bulgy brake, and AK-74 brakes are not nearly as loud as the mini-y. I need to replace that damn mini-y with a KKF brake.

PMbiker, Let us know how your latest toy handles at the range.

where'd you get those flamed maple handguards in the other pics?

Thanks again guys, I can't wait to take it out.
It's exactly as I pictured it in my head, maybe better. I looked at some gb/fsb combos at a couple of different places till I saw a post here somewhere with pictures of one done at ORF.
Just as good and cheaper to boot.

The rock maple stockset on my Hungarian SA-85m is from Ironwood. They come @80% finished and you fit, shape if necessary, final sand and finish with stain, oil or poly. I used minwax golden oak stain and some rub-in polyurethane to get that finish. There are excellent directions on the website.
