    Never again will I buy surplus Bulgarian ammo...I ordered 500 rounds of Wolf 5.45x39mm for my AK 74 from www.the-armory.com. With shipping, I ended up paying around 80$....so 16 cents a round. It may be 3-4 cents more per round, but there is no comparison. It not only felt better to shoot, but it was also a lot more accurate. I was truly surprised. We were hitting coke cans @ 100 yards while standing up. I will definitely be sticking to this ammo from now on...

    I always assumed the difference in ammo would be nearly negligible. Boy was I fucking wrong. The bolt action feels 10x more solid, it sounds better, and was a shitload more accurate. Its also supposed to be "non-corrosive", but I am still cleaning my rifle as if it were. Dont wanna take any chances :x:

    Wolf isn't corrosive or my SAR1 would be rusted solid. 3k+ rounds since last cleaning.

    I would at least check your bores every now and then... I shot some Wolf through my M44 and left it for a couple of weeks and the bore pitted a little bit. Better safe than sorry.

    Thread that barrel and put on a 74 brake.

    Looks like I'll have to pick up some wolf too to see the difference.

    What does it mean to thread the barrel? Also, whats the difference between a 47 and 74 brake? Link? Thanks. I suggest buying a couple hundred rounds. You will see a huge difference.

    Put threads on the end of the barrel so you can screw on a muzzle brake. There's kits to do it that cost around $50 but it would probably be cheaper (and turn out better) if you took it to a gun smith. Just ask them to thread it for 14 x 1 LH.

    The 47 brake doesn't work as well as the 47 brake. You should have barley any recoil and muzzle jump with a 74 + brake I would imagine.

    The first and last ones are 47 brakes and theres one that says AK-74 brake.

    I will definitely pick up some 5.45 wolf. No complaints with Wolf through my 47.

    There's a barrel threading kit. I've never used one but it doesn't look too hard. I'm thinking now it would be cheaper to do it yourself. Use it once then sell it. I just saw a used one an the AR15.com equipment exchange sell for $45.

    Edit: :doh: that one's sold out. Here's one but it's a little bit more. I think it might come with more stuff to make it easier though, not sure.

    You can also swap out front site bases for one thats threaded, a threaded one runs about $40.

    whoa, hold on. 14x1 is the 47 threading.

    He wan'ts threading to accept -74 muzzle devices, which is 28x something IIRC

    Really? I thought they were both 14x1. I could be wrong though :o. Either way though, they make 74 style brakes for 14x1.

    so basically the benefit of putting the AK 74 brake is it decreases the vertical recoil, or "muzzle jump"? Also, are they legal in every state?

    Yeah, you're right PanzerAce, thanks for catching my mistake. It's 23x1 RH I believe.

    And Daiz4yota, yeah, it should help control the muzzle jump. I really don't know if they are legal in every state, I assume they would be legal in every state that allows you to have a threaded barrel.

    Legal everywhere the gun is legal, in some commie states if they also make a F/H or nade launcher in the same thread pattern the brake has to be permamently attached though. :greddy:

    not AFAIK.

    Also, a 74 style brake will reduce recoil to almost nill from what my LEO friend has told me.

    Has to be permamently attached in some north east states maybe cali is ok with it. I have a 74 brake on my SAR2 not much recoil out it never had much recoil to begin with.

    Yea I dont know if its even worth it, as it has very little recoil to begin with. Maybe a modification ill do further down the road.

    Only worthwhile if you like the look really. If ya got a place you can bumpfire thats about the only time you might see a noticeable difference

    I cant even put more than 6 goddamn rounds in the magazine at the outdoor range I goto. Bumpfiring is a big no no :nono:

    Connecticut requires any muzzle device to be permanently attached.
