    Any interest in an effective 24mm flash hider?

    Although there are plenty of options for 14x1L and for 1/2x28 TPI, it seems that the three options for the 24mm AK-74 type front sight base are limited to 1. AK-74 brake, 2. AR-1 flash hider, 3. Krinkov muzzle booster, and 4. krinkov soup can

    Is there any interest in a more effective flash hider, say something a bit more Phantom or Vortex like? It would take a bit more metal stock than the average flash hider, but I certainly would be willing to make something happen if there is real interest- feel free to post your input!

    Re: Any interest in an effective 24mm flash hider?

    I think with the massively growing popularity of the AK74 that its a great idea .

    If i only had one or two 74's i would probably try to keep them as original as possible , but - i do have a couple that i reg. shoot the crap out of that i also like to change up allot , try different furniture, gizmos , tacticool stuff , whatever...

    I would definitely be interested in more options when it comes to 24mm flash hider's .

    I would be interested in an effective and SHORT flash suppressor. With my 74 I already have 16" of barrel, I don't need to hang another 3 inches of flash suppressor onto the front of that.

    I agree completely with that sentiment, and it would be the same length or shorter than the AK-74 brake.

    Re: Any interest in an effective 24mm flash hider?

    Design(s) are in the works, I am taking all the feedback into consideration. When I get a bit closer I will post pics of the three I think are best, and we'll let the forum choose what they want in a poll. Sound good?

    Re: Any interest in an effective 24mm flash hider?

    I'd be happy with something similar to a phantom or A2 that wasn't so damn long. I know it may look a bit awkward stepping down in side after the barrel, but I don't even care.

    Re: Any interest in an effective 24mm flash hider?

    OK, here are three concepts I have worked up. All of them are the same maxiumum dimensions externally- 1" in diameter, about 2.2" overall length. ABout 1" will thread over the muzzle thread and about 1.2" are for the flash hider tines and chamber.

    For reference, the AK-74 muzzle brake is 3.25" long, so you will be shaving about 1" off the total length of the rifle.


    Design #1: four prong with twist


    Design #2, five slot with twist and closed end


    Design #3, five slot with straight cuts and 'aggressor' end

    Let me know what you think about the various features, and also what kind of price range you are comfortable with. Note that this will be a small production run, so please do not expect this to be a $10-$15 flash hider, but it will most definitely be under $50.

    [ETA] Also note these are 'rough sketches' and there are a few tweaks I will be making.

    Mabey some holes in the top of it to help with muzzle rise? And also a chromed interior.

    Chrome is not going to be cost effective on a small run, it could easily double or triple the price.

    Re: Any interest in an effective 24mm flash hider?

    I would honestly be happy with any of those 3. I tried to vote for #2 but it won't let me.

    I wouldn't add any sort of "compensator", that would just make it loud as hell.

    I think your on the right track with the phantom technology. That's about the best kill flash out there (that I know of).

    Ever think about making a flat spring for the AK74 series to take all the wiggle and wobble out of the different '74 type brakes and devices that don't time perfectly?? like the ones found on the Yugo M90-95's?

    Re: Any interest in an effective 24mm flash hider?

    If you do produce these I want one...anyway to get on a list or something? My biggest complaint about my 74 is the goofy long "compensator" that does nothing for recoil IMO.
