Manticore Arms NightShroud MK II Flash Hider

Just picked up a Manticore Arms NightShroud MK II Flash Hider for testing with the DDI AK74S. These are actually very hard to find right now. The Manticore Arms NightBrake is very easy to find, but I wanted a flash hider, as the 5.45×39 round does not have a lot of recoil, so a muzzle brake is not needed. The NightShroud looks pretty damn nice. It has a 24mm (Right Hand Thread) standard for most AK74 rifles. It will work with both 5.45×39 and 7.62×39  rifles with 24mm threads. I really like the multiple detent locking notches around the NightShroud. The detents allow a nice tight fit, eliminating any wobble.  It is also quite a bit shorter than the standard AK74 muzzle brake  Here are a few quick pictures of it mounted right out of the box.

Retro AR15 & Cleaning

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
Ever since I acquired this Colt SP1. I had it in mid to get some of the Vietnam era military cleaning gear to go with it. Not so much to use, but for display. I have a fairly large military display of Vietnam war era items and normally the cleaning stuff  is among the other things displayed. It took a while to track down each of these thing in new mint condition, but it was worth it and it makes a nice picture of the items in common use at time the rifle was originally made.
