Circle 10 AK has added three new products to their line of AK accessories – two muzzle brakes and a version of their fixed aluminum triangle stock compatible with Yugoslavian AKs. All these new AK products are made in the United States thus each of them counts as one 922(r) compliance parts when building AKs from imported parts kits. Let’s take a brief look at each of these three new AK parts.
With an overall length of 1.75″, the T-72 is a fairly compact two-port muzzle brake that also doubles as a muzzle rise compensator thanks to the two holes drilled on top of each chamber. It is made of S7 tool steel and has a black oxide finish. This muzzle device is compatible with AKs that have a 14x1L metric left-hand muzzle threads and are chambered in calibers up to and including 9x19mm. The overall weight of the T-72 brake is 2.9 oz.
The second muzzle brake released by Circle 10 AK is also a two-port one except it’s a bit longer (2.5″) compared to the previous one but has a slimmer profile. This brake is also made of S7 tool steel, has a black oxide finish, works with 14x1L muzzle thread pitch and any caliber up to 9mm. The XS brake weighs in at 2.6 oz.
Circle 10 AK makes such triangle stocks for a variety of different AK rifles. This latest addition is compatible with stamped receiver Yugoslavian/Serbian pattern AKs such as the Zastava N-PAP or O-PAP. This stock is machined out of billet 6061 aluminum and has a mil-spec Type II hard coat anodized finish. It features an ambidextrous QD sling swivel socket at the toe and large horizontal serrations on the butt. When installed, the stock extends by 9″ from the receiver of the gun. The overall weight of this stock is 16 oz.
Here is an excerpt from the company’s website telling about the compatibility of this stock with recently imported Zastava Arms USA rifles:
Please note this does not fit the first batch of bulged trunnion M70s imported by Zastava USA without some minor filing of the stock. The stock trunnion of that batch is different from all other Yugo stock trunnions. Any further imports will be the original Yugo stock trunnion.
The MSRP of Circle 10 AK fixed triangle stock for Yugoslavian pattern AKs is $109.95. It comes with all the hardware necessary for the installation.
