Default RH-10

Just picked up an RH-10 that has been sitting in the back of inventory at my local gun shop forgotten about. I was helping the owner with his new point of sale system. We started adding inventory and noticed the century box. I was excited to see an RH10 inside. The owner let me take it for $500. I really donít think he knew much about them. Anyway, my question is this. Can ijust run any standard ak47 type muzzle brake on the end of this barrel? I know most 7.62 brakes have the timing slot for the pin in the front but i figure since the birdcage that came from the factory isnít timed that it wouldnít be a big deal. Am i correct in thinking i can run a 7.62 brake without it being held in place with the RH-10 not having the pin ?

Super sweet deal. Sorry, I don’t know much about the muzzle brake to answer your question.

Good score, I sold mine the other day to buy a LWRC DI. They don't come very often, but I prob will pick up another.

Rocksett is a semi permanent way of attaching a muzzle device. AAC ships it with their suppressor mounts.

I have used loctite on my M10’s without issue.

See if a crush washer will work with the birdcage on it.

rh10 for 500 is a solid deal brother. you did good. as others have said any compound can set any standard or aftermarket 14x1lh brake. a chop thread and pin weld extension would also be excellent if you have access to someone in the know who's proficient with machinery

You got a great deal.

Paid $800 for each of the two I bought from Atlantic PRIOR to the election. Figured I'd be able to sell one , when\if Hillary won.
It's a WASR basically with a different rear sight, magpul furniture, gas block. Where you see the notch on the rear sight, cut a "V" (or "U" ? ) with a Dremel stone so that you can see the front post better. The windage adjustment on the rear is also cool. Tighten the magpul buttstock screws and use blue loctite to secure . My two rifles accept all mags. DO NOT dremel out your rifle magwell unless all mags are problematic. Dremel the MAG not the rifle, for isolated mag insertion issues.

One of my two had rivet issues ( not the best of rivet work at the factory) and the parkerized finished could be better. Believe it or not, I used mink oil on the finish and liked the result. Poor little minks. The fit of the magpul furniture was good. No FTE or FTF, and it's an accurate rifle.

Despite what others here say about replacing the magpul stuff with wood ,I actually think the rifle looks good with it because of the unique RH10 gas block, and muzzle brake.

Supposedly only 2000 + imported, so in 20 years you can sell it for more. I made a bad judgement call, and paid too much, at the time (2016)- you got a good rifle, at a great price, that is unique, and should last a long time.

Sorry for long reply

A crush washer will not fit, the barrel has too small OD. There's always a lock nut. I'm going to chop my barrel and then pin/weld a fsc on there

Thanks for the tips. I've owned at least one wasr since 2007 so I know the many issues and fixes. I used to fix everyon s canted front sight around here by popping the pins and re-drilling. I've never had a wasr with mag fit issues. All have min have been gtg. I was just asking bc I am unfamiliar with this barrel threading technique without a crush washer.
I wouldn't consider your decision to purchase the RH10 a bad judgement call. If you have the money and you like it. Go for it! If the store manager would have said "$750", I would have paid it for this one all the same.
Is it really true that there are still only 2000 imported? I still see them in stock on a couple big name gun commerce sites. Thanks for the info!

Yes it is true that only 2000 were imported.

I've got an M10 as well as hizzie and it's basically the exact same gun minus Magpul furniture..
Hell of a deal on a combloc built AK ..what hizzie said also..just use some loctite or even a threaded washer from cancer Warrior and a crushwasher set up
