Shooting Mini Beryl
Last weekend I had opportunity to try Mini Beryl on smal 3Gun Liga Sportera match (shooting IDPA targets@50m on video). I do not have prior experience with AK platform, even less with short one. I mostly shoot G3 and variety of AR15s before. Shooting Mini was nice. It kicks back a little but muzzle climb is not big, but definitely goes to the right side. It has flash hider that is similar in construction to A2. Original muzzle device incorporates chamber to increase pressure for gas system, so it will be hard to change it for anything. Locking pin and necessity to remove it to clean this "chamber" precludes clocking it. I think of having new muzzle device made, that in place of flash hider will have 1/2"x28tpi thread to utilize AR15 muzzle devices. Other issue is stock, that is definitely to low in relation to sights/optic. Tell me what you think!
