    Oh I agree 100%. I came across the guys actual account/blog about it when I was thinking about turning my build into a pistol, but I couldn't find it this time.
    “The rifle itself has no moral stature, since it has no will of its own. Naturally, it may be used by evil men for evil purposes, but there are more good men than evil, and while the latter cannot be persuaded to the path of righteousness by propaganda, they can certainly be corrected by good men with rifles.”

    Yeah if you want to carry an AR "type" weapon, that is the one to do it with. You ever get it running right Sean?

    When I fire my 16" Mini-14 on a BRIGHT SUNNY DAY, I can see the muzzle flash. What in the world does the fireball from something that short look like?

    Do you know what the fireball is like from a Mosin M44? It's about the same.
    Concussion depends on the muzzle brake or if there is one, and with the right brake there's almost no muzzle flip.

    I have a 7.5" Bush Master like this one.

    Everything I read about a mosin makes me want to shoot my 22 marlin.I know the russkies wore more layers but I know why the klack took off. Like going from the garand to the ar platform.

    it makes a pretty good flash on both 5.56 & 5.45 with a hell of a lot of BANG...

    but this is absolutely the best muzzle break ive ever seen as far as doing what its supposed to. recoil is MINIMAL.. even shooting 1 handed. got a video posted here somewhere of it.

    & since this is a polymer upper & lower.. this thing is very very light.


    EDIT: here it is in the 5.56 version in daylight

    Just because something is legal does not make it a good idea .

    I could carry a 16" barreled AK pistol on a concealed hand gun permit . I have no reason ti ever do this . I get pulled over enough for the types of cars I drive I don't need to try to explain gun laws to a nervous officer at 2 AM .

    IMO those guys who carry just to get a reaction are carrying for the wrong reasons .

    Yea I have considered the fact I could have a loaded AK pistol under the seat but decided its just not needed or worth the hassle .

    I have been eye balling the arm braces for my hunting set up. a folding arm brace would make concile still possible
