    I'm picking out my Pap tomorrow and probably will fill out my Form 1 in the next two weeks. I plan on making it the younger, faster brother of my Draco. I'm about to get a Trijicon RMR for my Draco and put it on a MI Mini Dot Mount. I'll have to figure out a different mounting method for an optic if I choose to get one.

    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    Based on my bathroom scale, I'm going to say ~7 lbs with a loaded Circle 10 mag.

    I'm drooling a little. One of my "gun dreams" is to build up an SBR AK from a pistol. That and a suppressor or two...cash is the extremely limiting factor for me.

    Huntertown Arms is making a suppressor for the AK. Its also user servicable. If you'll look at my avatar you'll see one on the SBR AK.

    This Draco needs a can, but I'm afraid of getting one and not having concentric threads on my muzzle. That could turn out expensive.

    Could you send the dealer/maker a muzzle device that you know fits your Draco? Then they could confirm the right threads.


    atctimmy is ignorant of these things.

    Thats a known issue with any AK and thevery reason that just a couple of manufacturers even mess with them.

    The Huntertown that I have on mine is aware of this and has a larger exit hole just to compensate. It works well.

    So since I'm slow can you explain a little better. Are you saying that due to poor tolerances that it would be possible to have your silencer slightly out or alignment with the bore. Is that the concern?

    I want three! Where do I sign up?!
    I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness, nor the arrow for its swiftness, nor the warrior for his glory. I love only that which they defend.

    If the threads are not concentric, they are not "square" with the bore and the can will be out of alignment.

    I will have to look into that. Does any distributor carry them? I'm not to thrilled about the thought of paying retail. If you don't mind, PM me.

    Edit: I see that Acusport carries them. Awesome.

    Acusport has them for a good price, but they only have 5/8-24 threads. I was really hoping for some kind of QD as well.
