How to Suppress Your AK

How to Suppress Your AK

In this episode of TFBTV, James Reeves is at Red Oktober 2021 visiting with Mike Pappas of Dead Air. For this video, James and Mike discuss the challenges with suppressing an AK-47 or Kalashnikov-pattern rifle, and how to overcome these challenges without injuring yourself of damaging your suppressor or your AK. Mike also discusses the Dead Air Wolverine at length, including the design features it utilizes for optimizing the can for the AK platform.

    Yea my wasr has 1/2×20 rh threads, I don’t understand why they wouldn’t just leave the rifles alone

  2. Austin Huber on September 21, 2022 at 8:14 pm

  3. Christopher Stromberg on September 21, 2022 at 8:15 pm

  4. Kevin Gubernatis on September 21, 2022 at 8:16 pm

  5. Will L on September 21, 2022 at 8:17 pm

  7. charlie janes on September 21, 2022 at 8:20 pm

  8. Joseph Martin on September 21, 2022 at 8:20 pm

    Hello
    Question
    When using a silencer like the wolverine, would I have to upgrade my gas tube to a KNS piston rod so that I can use a Wolverine silencer?

  9. Brad Oldenburg on September 21, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    I could listen to Mike talk suppressors all day long.

  10. El Toro Patron on September 21, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Just stick a bore site laser in the damn thing before you fire it

  13. AMXSShirt on September 21, 2022 at 8:22 pm

  14. Will Marr on September 21, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    Another word comes to mind about the threads is Sigogglin.

  15. John Paul on September 21, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    Has anyone tried this on a pas akp?

  16. drswanson123 on September 21, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    Yeah they make 3 different size collars and adapters for the PBS1 that are NEVER in stocks.

  17. Deadman9047 on September 21, 2022 at 8:23 pm

    I live in Italy and a suppressor is only a thing that we can see in movies or YouTube.

    when you knew #1 was CS before they said it

  20. SaltyDawg on September 21, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    I love how this guy sounds a bit like John Malkovich. I just want to listen to him talk about firearms lol.

  21. LEEIOH on September 21, 2022 at 8:26 pm

    Is TFB watching my bank account? Cuz I just purchased a Wolverine and I had numerous questions in my mind. And now here you are with a video???? Illuminati confirmed? Uhh duh.

  22. Philanthropist on September 21, 2022 at 8:27 pm

    what’s the song at the end?

  23. The Dumb Gun Collector on September 21, 2022 at 8:28 pm

    Booze is awesome

  24. DEADhands on September 21, 2022 at 8:29 pm

    In Russia ak silences you..

  25. Chris Beem on September 21, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    I’ve got a Sandman S in NFA jail right now. I’m really hoping to be able to use it on my M70 with a LH keymo mount but I’m worried about the concentric issue. I think the easiest option is to bite the bullet, buy the mount and see if I can get the alignment verified before shooting. Really no other viable option for me. I’d rather waste $80 on the mount and have it not work out than splurge on a US made barrel that I can’t afford.

  26. Garrett Boone on September 21, 2022 at 8:34 pm

    I’ve ran thousands upon thousands through my wolverine. Finally my guide rod broke, so a KNS piston will be next

  27. Joe Gagnon on September 21, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    2:02 🤫

  28. Night-Owl-0935 on September 21, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Now if only they’d stock other adapters regularly.. anyone know how these fair vs the surefire in flash and signature reduction?

  29. Operator's Anonymous on September 21, 2022 at 8:35 pm

    Suppressed AK’s have a specific sound and I love it

  30. 20Sarunas on September 21, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    still disappointed you didnt bring him a sammich

  31. Calvin Thomas on September 21, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    Mike: "You want a suppressor on your AK. You NEED a suppressor on your AK. We use words like "concentricity," "baffle," "caddywampus""

  32. Colin DuPée on September 21, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    I’ve got the world’s shittiest AK; a bullpup abomination from Century Arms. For giggles, I got a QD for the YHM can I’ve got on my 300 blackout. They’re damn near the same damn thing now, except one of them costs 3x as much per squeeze. I don’t know that you need a special can for your AK, but I heartily recommend suppression for them!

  33. Leon Roland on September 21, 2022 at 8:39 pm

    You guys are in my top 5 Youtube channels to be sure; you present constantly phenomenal content. That said, why no music credits for the outro? Whoever selects these tracks is clearly a man of refined, cultured taste; yet he does not share even a drop of the sauce? An internet faux-pas such as this is leagues below your level gentlemen.

  34. Gorgon Son Of Skrygorn on September 21, 2022 at 8:40 pm

    Kns gas piston 👍

  35. Ru5ty on September 21, 2022 at 8:42 pm

    Just got a Blue Alpha range/duty belt. My crotch is wet with anticipation

  36. WC3fanatic997 on September 21, 2022 at 8:47 pm

    How do you suppress AK?

    You dont. Rifle is fine.

  37. ZARDOZ ! on September 21, 2022 at 8:48 pm

    🙂

  38. Bina Lith on September 21, 2022 at 8:50 pm

    does the wolverine work with any muzzle devices or is only for direct thread? like could you use it for a front end converted/16" pin-n-weld ak and another 30 cal gun?…derp.

  39. ETHRON1 on September 21, 2022 at 8:51 pm

    Over gas issue…KNS adjustable gas piston for the AK.

  40. Joe Gagnon on September 21, 2022 at 8:56 pm

    :56 😦 my face was like

  41. flippy51090 on September 21, 2022 at 8:57 pm

    dead air guy sounds like he is on cold meds

  42. Mr. Lovell on September 21, 2022 at 8:58 pm

    Mike seems to be a very likeable dude, hope to buy one of his cans very soon!

  43. UnknownBoss on September 21, 2022 at 9:00 pm

    Wolverine PBS-1 likely the best AK silencer!

  44. Phil Hagoes on September 21, 2022 at 9:00 pm

    What is the Aimpoint mount used on the AK? Thanks in advance!

  45. Peter Aviles on September 21, 2022 at 9:01 pm

  46. 103m95g on September 21, 2022 at 9:03 pm

  47. out2burn on September 21, 2022 at 9:04 pm

  48. UnknownBoss on September 21, 2022 at 9:04 pm

  49. T T on September 21, 2022 at 9:06 pm

  50. Turbo-Bike on September 21, 2022 at 9:06 pm
