Default Where to find these Russian flash hiders??

How do you do!
I'm trying to find some of these Russian flash hiders. Do they make them in 7.62 as well as 5.45?

Here is a picture from AKOU -




If anybody could find one for me, I'd really appreciate it!!
Thanks so much - Ray

Which Russian flash hider are you asking about? Is it the small birdcage originally made for the RPK74?

No, he pic he posted shows something similar to a Bulgarian 4 piece but with the body shaped straight like a short piece of tube/pipe vs the slight conical shape of the 4 piece.

How do you do everyone!
Mishaco, sorry for not being specific, I should have taken care to describe it in full. Apologies!
It is like the Bulgarian 4 piece flash hider (like this one!), except it is mostly smooth with only the end part being knurled.

It appears to be an aftermarket part that Russians have been using, it is not an issued military part.
Perhaps someone from Russia might know something about it?

I'm not looking for this part to fulfill any basic purpose behind "looks", for a build I am currently working on... I am sure other flash hiders work just fine lol.

Thank you everyone!!
- love from Ray

There are several Russian companies producing variants of this flashider in both 7.62 and 5.45. My choice is company called "Lotgun": http://lotgun.ru/products/22727384
We did some testing a few years ago:

For me it was pretty impressive.

Thank you so much, Machak!

that one looks very nice, although, it is a bit different from the other one's I have seen...
Do you know of any that are identical to the one in the photo above?
This one:

I think I found it, but I am not sure who is the actual manufacturer: http://orion-spec.ru/DTK-Bulgarian
You can try to send them an email ru@grey-line.com I think they have international shipping.

You might also try Legion-USA down in FL. They seem to be the only American company with newer production Russian parts/accessories.

Thank you Mishaco! I checked, they didn't have what I was looking for, although they have a lot of awesome stuff!

Thank you Machak! But I noticed it says "only for airsoft." Is that only for liability reasons?

Yeah, probably, but I have no first-hand experience with this particular flashider.

Thank you, Machak!!

I must say, the fact that it says "airsoft" makes me want to go with another flashhider, haha. I don't know.
I am looking at other similar Russian can flashhiders. I found one by Armacon called the "wolf", it looks quite nice!
Thanks so much - Ray

You’re right, I’m in Virginia (not Maryland). It says so under location under my name.

Hi Camaro,
it is called the DTK "Bulgarian" in Russia but I cannot find where it is produced... it is a copy of the Bulgarian 4-piece flash hider but the can itself is smooth, no ridges.

I found a similar looking brake produced by Strela in Ukraine, although it doesn't come with a chrome or SS funnel (you have to buy another from them, I don't know why it doesn't come with the SS funnel). They are inexpensive though
Thanks - Ray
