    Proper Muzzle Nut for Russian RPK 7.62

    So, I got this Romanian RPK I am going to try and clone into a Russian RPK.

    I also have a '68 AKM kit I got from RGuns.

    The '68 kit came with a muzzle nut that looks like the one pictured on the right. The Romanian kit came with a muzzle nut like the one pictured on the left.

    Not a fan of a muzzle nut on a AKM, so I bought a Russian slant brake from that guy at Russian Surplus which gives me this leftover nut. I was thinking about putting this nut (like the one on the right) on the RPK but I actually prefer the looks of the Romanian one (like the one on the left). Plus one of the 922(r) parts I bought and was thinking about using looks just like the Romanian one.

    Which is the proper style of muzzle nut to use on a Russian RPK?

    Soviet RPK will be the one on the right side. With two grooves.

    Not the answer I was hoping for, but I will accept the hand I have been dealt.

    I will use a nut like the one on the right, even though I find this style to be less aesthetically pleasing than the other one.

    Thank you.

    The 68 should have had a slant comp anyway as best as I can tell.
