The SRC AK Flashhider is constructed from high strength metal and is designed specifically for the AK47, however it will fit most airsoft guns with a 14mm counter-clockwise thread on the barrel. This is a great replacement for the fake looking plastic flash hider that comes OEM on some model AK47s.

For: SRC AK Flash Hider CCW
WARNING: if you are not an expert on AK-47's, (and I am not), be aware that the smaller end is the muzzle end of this item. Not as the photo would suggest, as do most of the other photos of available flash hiders.
It's better than the plastic orange tip that comes with most AEG's.
No instalation schematics on the package or instructions included, (I nearly stripped the threaded end of my AK's muzzle because of this). I knew it was threaded counter-clockwise, but you will have difficulty if you attempt to install it backwards with the flared end towards the muzzle openning.
At first glance, I had no idea what the pin and spring was for, but after ruining the unit trying to install it I finally figured it out... lesson learned I guess.
$25.00 plus shipping for a tiny peice of anodized alluminum... nah! In my opnion you're better off just painting the orange tip flat black and save yourself the hassle of removing it and wasting money on an over-priced little trinket.
