    Just tried out the Tapco slotted brake on my Yugo AK. I was initially skeptical because Tapco, but this is probably my favorite muzzle device, having similar effects as the 74-style brake but without the enormous size and weight. It virtually eliminates vertical climb and the recoil is substantially lessened, leaving just a slight horizontal jump. The only downside is the blast of gas going straight up through the sight picture, but rapid fire was very manageable without losing sight of the target. Definitely worth the fifteen bucks and definitely an improvement over the standard slant brake.

    I got some slow-motion footage I'll try to upload later.

    One of the few things Tapco did right, just like their G2 AK trigger groups.
    Great brake for the money; if you want to upgrade, check out the Manticore Night Brake, it's every bit as good as the AK Battle Comp for 1/3rd the price.

    If you avoid the polymer shit that tapco makes, the rest is of "ok" or better quality.

    I've yet to have an issue with the Tapco magazine I have. Works just as flawlessly as the Magpul one.

    Most of the hate comes from their earlier versions of their polymer products, which were questionable at best, and absolute shit at worst.

    They've improved significantly, but still lack basic things like metal re-enforcing for the feed lips on their mags. I've got some 10 round mags for my AK (thanks commifornia), and they're pretty OK, but you can definitely see the wear and tear on them, even after only about 1000 rounds (split amongst 5 mags)

    If you're going to spend that much, you may as well buy the Venom Antidote for $200.

    I've dealt with my AK's cleaning rod bouncing forward almost off the gun several times now while firing. Today, while screwing around with it, I noticed there is a cutout at the bottom of the FSB for it. Wow.

    In my defense, the massive brake on my '74 made it unnecessary.

    I always laugh when I'm watching a youtube video of someone shooting with their cleaning rod halfway out in front of the muzzle because of that.

    Supposedly AKs shoot better without them though, harmonic vibrations and all.

    I have a SOG seal pup and it's a halfway decent knife. It's really nothing extraordinary though, I'd get a Kershaw instead

    They are GTG.

    Kershaw, Benchmade, CRKT, they all have good knives and bad knives, so google the model beforehand.

    Like I said, really impressed with the effectiveness of a $15 Tapco accessory. Zero vertical recoil, just a bit of a tug to the right. With a straight-line stock it handles a hell of a lot better than the more 'authentic' 7.62 AKs I've shot.

    Alright, so here's a question for you guys:

    How the FUCK does Spike manage to conceal-carry a CZ-75B in "Cowboy Bebop"? Like, theoretically, not literally.

    I just recently came in possession of one and I can't for the life of me figure out how you'd conceal something so thick.

    In the small of your back, near your asscrack. That's about the only place I could think of.

    I'm thin, so CCing a 1911 or G20/21 is no problem, it just means you don't wear hipster tight clothing or tuck in your shirts. Easier if you wear a sport coat or jacket all the time, then you can tuck in your shirt an use the jacket to conceal it.

    Edited:

    If you happen to have $4k burning a hole in your pocket, you can buy a real M24, because Remington is selling its remaining inventory of them. Only for active, reserve/guard, or retired military however:

    That doesn't apply. Remington sold the M24's to an FFL, and he is selling them. That is because of an Army clause that says nothing that was built for the military can be sold to the public. However, a FFL can buy them and THEN sell to public, which he is doing now.

    One of those ends in 10 mins and is already over 5 grand.

    I'm not denying that the CZ75 is a great gun, but it has at least like 40 more tiny parts and springs than the Hi Power

    But anyways, I'd take a P210 over the CZ or a HP

    Why do people say this? The P210 is pretty, but as far as the gun itself, it is kinda crap. They were prone to breaking all the time.

    Horrible ergonomics as well, it was a target gun, and it kind of failed at that.

    There are plenty of handguns out there that are better than the 1911 as a fighting handgun. As a range toy on the other hand it's pretty hard to beat the 1911's accuracy. That might have something to do with there being a massive amount of custom parts of the 1911 platform.

    It's one of those guns where either it fits you or it doesn't and you can forget about modifications; basically, unless you are a collector, or have to own one, there is no reason not to purchase a competition/target 1911 in 9mm at the same price point of $2K +.

    Here is an extensive review and history of the new and original:

    Well obviously, one is a newer, update model made in Germany instead of Switzerland.
    I doubt you'd be able to perceive any difference in quality however.
    The original was still shite, what with the hammer bite, terrible safety position and the heel mag release, all of which were awful for a combat pistol, and not the greatest for a target gun.
