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.
Terminal Ballistics – In gerneral, handgun rounds poke holes, rifle rounds break up into fragments (and tumble) causing a greater amount of internal damage. Read more about it via the link above.
My daughter has been shooting with me a number of times before. When I take her with me, it’s all about stressing safety, form, sight picture and trigger control. I’m working on getting her squared up on the target, but she still shoots like a girl. 😉 Everytime we go, she has a good time. YMMV.
Springfield TRP Operator (Full rail)
All railed Springfield Operators have Bull Barrels. This model is based off the Custom Shop “FBI” though has MIM parts and is not completely hand fitted.
It is not a light weight aluminum frame carry gun and with the full rail, it weighs even more than your standard 1911. The good news is, there is little felt recoil. Slap a 10 round mag in there with the light and it’s like you’re shooting .22’s.
This one is going back to the custom shop for a clean up and new sights then it will be sold. It doesn’t get the attention it deserves.
Colt 1851 Navy revolver .36 Caliber
Inherited from my father. The story goes, he was given this pistol by a “real Sheriff” as a young adult.
I’ve never shot it.
