I'm a big fan of the PWS FSC47 for 7.62x39 AK's with 14x1 LH threading, though some people refuse to pay that much for a muzzle device for their AK.

2) In regards to front sight posts, anything you get that has a tritium bar or some kind of mark on it is going to be good for close aiming, but not that great for any kind of distance aiming. On the other side of the spectrum, any kind of thin or fine front sight post will be great for distances but not very quick for close stuff. You could probably try using your original sight post and use a bright paint marker to mark a thin part of the the top of it or you could try something like this.

I'm looking for a mixture...the WASR has totally manageable recoil in my opinion...I'm not a big guy, about 5'10" around 180. Its more about flash reduction than felt recoil, although my girl would probably like a bit of recoil reduction. My only concern is NYS...I'm not sure what they consider legal or not legal, weird, stupid ass laws.

Anyway I think the link you sent me was the flash suppressor my guys at my local gun shop suggested.

As for the sights, I suppose I'll have to do more research.
