Spitting fireballs with the AKS-74u Krinkov (VIDEO)

Ziga and Manca with Polenar Tactical test out a legit Warsaw Pact Krinkov both with and without the booster to see what effect the muzzle device has on 5.45x39mm fireball mitigation.

The gas booster helps the weapon to cycle properly while also eating up a lot of muzzle flash due to unburnt propellant igniting at the abbreviated end of the  AKS-74u’s tiny barrel — and they have the footage to prove it.

Also, Ziga weighs in at the end of the clip on the proper terminology for the Krink, which has long been a contentious matter of gun blog discussion in the West.
