PEOPLE SAID IT COULDN'T BE DONE.
You want to build a dedicated AK suppressor?
You can't do that.
They're too loud.
What about non-concentric threads?
How will it mount consistently?
There's too many variations.
And yet, here it is. AK and combloc gun lovers rejoice.
SO WHAT WILL THIS COMBLOC SILENCER FIT?
Adapters will be available for: 14L, 14R, 24R, 26L, 15mm, 16mm, 1/2-28, 5/8-24, and 9/16L; possibly more will be added to the list depending on demand.
You won't have to buy multiple silencers to fit different threaded combloc rifles. We plan on offering user changeable thread inserts. More details to come.
The adapter and locking collar are counter threaded to each other to prevent unintentional removal. In other words, if the thread adapter is a left-hand thread, the locking collar is right-hand. To install, the Wolverine is first threaded onto the barrel as far as it will go, and then the locking collar is tightened down to the rifle. There are relief cuts in the locking collar to engage the spring-loaded pins on AK front sight bases to further fasten the suppressor and keep everything in place.
Due to the, generous tolerances of foreign thread patterns, the bore diameter of the Wolverine PBS-1 is slightly larger than your average silencer. One of the reasons for a replaceable endcap is that even with the most egregious threading, the endcap is still the part most likely to be struck by an exiting projectile. Dead Air says this will be an exceptional performer for short-barreled rifles, even on non-AK western guns. For us, we plan to mount one on a SCAR CQC for maximum annoyance and confusion.
All of this adds up to: Don't do anything special, just put it on and shoot
THE WOLVERINE PBS-1
It's real, and it's an AK lovers dream. Testing on numerous platforms have proved successful. A partial list includes numerous MOD Outfitters AK variants, WASR-10 in 7.62x39, RPK in 7.62x39, Rasheed 7.62x39, and AK-47 in .308.
We are extremely pleased with the first Wolverine prototype. In fact, we could launch it as it is, it's that awesome. But we want to push the boundaries even further for the AK and Combloc gun lovers, who always seem to be overlooked by silencer companies. With a few more modifications and tests, we'll be satisfied for production! - Mike Pappas
