Default KNS Piston

Was watching (re-watching, actually) one of Rob's videos a few minutes ago & noticed him mentioning something I had forgotten since I saw the video the first time. Anybody else kinda intrigued by this adjustable piston KNS has in the works? Seems like something that might contribute to the longevity of a rifle. Google & Bing don't show anybody selling it yet. Just wondering if anybody else is considering giving it a try.

If you're talking about the Kalashnikov, it sounds like more junk to separate fools from their money.

Or have you forgotten all those fully functional Type 1 AK-47s that are continually being found or seized by coalition forces overseas?

No, no. I know the thing's a tank. Not shilling for these guys. Indeed, the one KNS thing I've purchased I'm not terribly impressed with-- got a feeling this front sight post is made of pot metal or something. But Tapco is-- well, Tapco-- & a lot of guys like the G2. Hell, a lot of guys like the RAK-1 & it's made by Century, for cryin' out loud. Just wondering if it looked like a good option for an overgassed rifle. Not endorsing it or condemning it. Just looked kind of interesting.

I definitely plan on getting one to experiment with on a suppressed AK.

These seem like a good non-destructive way of taming gas for guys who think their rifles are overgassed, better than overspringing the action spring IMO.
