I felt that a 7.62 pistol needed the help of a compensator or brake to tame recoil. The Manticore Arms NightBrake is the best one I could find for the 26×1.5 left hand thread of this pistol. Because I take the M92 in my truck and may need to use it inside the vehicle, I wanted to keep it as short as possible and this brake only adds 1.125″ to the overall length. It’s machined from 8620 steel and heat treated which make this a very solid muzzle brake.
This is a Serbian Krinkov style AK pistol in 7.62×39. because it is a pistol, it does not require any modifications to meet 922(r) compliance when imported by Century Arms International into the US. It comes with a very nice trigger from the Zastava factory. The official Krinkov version is a rifle and not available in the US. It is built with an underfolder stock. The M92’s barrel is 10″ and is not chrome lined.
I added an Echo Nine Three V4/YP sling adapter and a US Palm AK-BG AK grip. The thread protector is spot welded (visible in the pic above) which I will remove with a dremel. I have a Krinkov style flash hider coming and a compensator that is on back order. I also ordered a detent kit for the muzzle device as well because the M92 doesn’t come with one.
As far as I’m concerned, they can take their entire stake with them.
I added the Rifle Dynamics AK to M4 Stock Adapter to my Arsenal SGL 21.
The stock adapter angles the stock straight off the back of the rifle unlike other adapters and AK stocks which slope down. The cheek weld is very high and is designed for use with an optic. It really forces you to mash your cheek into the stock when looking through the sights.
It requires an AR-15 Buffer Tube, End-Plate, Castle Nut and AR-15 Stock. I chose a Mil-Spec Magpul CTR with Mil-Spec parts. Mil-Spec parts are highly recommended. No permanent modification of the rifle is necessary and it takes about 15 minutes to install (if you’ve done this before on an AR-15). As always, make sure you stake the buffer tube castle nut with the end-plate!
