    In the AK world, what is a PKM?

    And what thread size is the muzzle?
    I don't "run" my guns or "run" anything on them. Likewise, none of my guns are "platforms".

    It's a belt fed medium machinegun, better known as a general purpose MG or GPMG.

    Sorry Rrotz, I couldn't resist since LMGs are usually in carbine caliber, ie the RPD and SAW.

    I hear they eat a shit load of ammo. I have already started to stock up. I plan on getting one next year. Just picked up 4,250 rnds in the cans on belts.

    Re: In the AK world, what is a PKM?

    Nice ammo pile!!

    Yeah, I needed the thread size. I found a flash hider for one of these and wondered if it would fit 24mm. It kind of looks like the russian flash hider I've seen pics of. But it won't fit. Oh well.
    Thanks for the info, guys!

    Re: In the AK world, what is a PKM?

    Make sure you have a broken case extractor. That ammo has a bad habit of coming apart in FA guns, thought I dont know what it will do in a semi-auto. But just to be on the safe side.....
