    I have plans to do a muzzel loading AK just to piss off the DNR. Im going to do a .458 cal muzzel loader that will take smokeless powder like the savage smokless muzzelloaders. I think a auto loader in black powder would suck you would not be able to see much after the first shot due to the smoke the barrel would need to be very long to get any speed out of the round. and it would be very very dirty very very fast. Im not saying it would not shoot it would just be a pain in the ass. there have already been 45/70/s as well as 444 marlins as well as the 410 and up Sagias that could easly be loaded with black powder. some port work will likely be required.

    so here is a link fron some body who did an AK with black powder ---

    Here is the vid you've all been waiting for! The black powder AK torture test. I loaded 20 rounds of 7.62x39 with 32 grains of BP and topped it with a 155 grain gas checked cast bullet. The AK ate it all without a hiccup!! Accuracy was really good too. Wait until you see the smoke cloud coming out of the barrel. Soooooo...here is the vid...

    I was just haunting YouTube again, trying to find that video. I'm *sure* that's where I saw it... but the one on SurplusRifles is the same one, and apparently the original.

    Thanks, Muttman!

    i shot some greek surplus-- hell i think it was 1960s greek that WAS black powder!

    best i can recall it functioned OK but was horribly dirty and smoky and underpowered.

    the same stuff the sks choked on--

    The more I think on this the more I'm leaning to triple 7 powder, less smoke low foweling and it should work with reprimed steel cases with hard lead at the top. Muttman

    That's cheatin! General Lee only had the Holy Black(powder)!!!

    Seriously, a Norinco Hunter would be a good basis for this project : milled receiver, 20" barrel (fit a Mosin 1891 socket bayonet to it), already set up for a straight stock w/o pistol grip....

    Jus' sayin'

    Sort of the brass, steel and wood look I had in mind for the Confederate AK, this is Michael Z William's "AK1887"
