Now say someone succumbed to the Royal Tiger pre-Black Friday sale on 223 VEPR IV's. And say one was trying to make VEPR IV a decent RPK-74M clone..... what would be an appropriate muzzle device?
This look kinda right:
22252 Type 84 style birdcage flash hider - M14 X 1 RH
What is the thread on the VEPR IV for that matter? Is the muzzle device on the VEPR IV tack welded or does it come right off?

Thank You!

EDIT - Huh, you can't change thread titles.... Anyway, does anyone know a source for modernized RPK-74 5.45 45rd ribbed, black, magazines? Is there a less awkward name for the modernized, ribbed, 45 round 5.45 mags while we are at it? Again, Thank You!

I was planning on using the same flash hider it is not thr right one but it is close. Are you changing yours to 5.45? I am looking for the 45rd ribbed mags but in 556.

I'm going to stick with 5.56 for now. I'm looking for the "proper" 5.45 magazine more for display purposes. It wouldn't be a complete waste... I have a number 5.45 weapons that can make "real" use of the magazine at other times.

I used one of the CNC warrior FH on a 1984 RPK74N build; It was identical to the original Russian, and interchanged. Finish is blued though, and not painted flat black.

As for the mags, you just have to check the various Russians selling "grey market" stuff, but they are not cheap.....

Unless you can find one of these-

Only place I have seen them sold commercially is in Germany, and even then they are about $120.
Can you name a specific shop? I have buddies heading that way.....

Cnc warrior is $21 and a US part. Its identical.
BigAL - appreciate the heads up.
Stottman - appreciate the advice.

Do you think the KVAR one is "painted"?
