Again for reasons that make absolutely no sense to anyone, the 106U pistol does not have a threaded FSB. The fake muzzle device is pressed on. If you wanted to get a working muzzle device you would have to replace the FSB with a standard threaded one, cut the barrel down to standard length, and then add either the cone booster or Bulgy "Beer Can" flash hider. Probably the booster to aid in functioning.
That's what I thought.
What a bunch of effort to fix something that's not broken?
It is strange with the fake crap flash hider and longer barrel?
And the brand new SAM7K - 7.62x39mm looks like the same thing?
the short gas system and 10.5" barrel,
with no flash hider / muzzle brake,
works just fine with 5.56/.223 ammo.
And I'm guessing I'm getting a ~100/200 fps more velocity
from the 10.5 compared to a ~8" barrel.
I think I'll leave the puppy alone for now...
My totally unsubstantiated theory on the fake flash hider?
The gun seems to be designed to fly under the radar of assault weapons for importation into the US.
It's not an SBR, doesn't have to be 922r compliant and
actually ships with a 5 round mag.
Technically it ships as a low capacity semi auto pistol - LOL!
No flash hider, bayonet lug...
to make it transform into an evil super killing machine
