Parts FAQ's

KA-1212 and KA-1212BR FAQ's:

Q: "How is the KA-1212 or KA-1212BR installed?"
The standard method installation is by silversoldering the part on the barrel.  On heavier-walled barrels such as the Remington 870, the barrel can be threaded to match the muzzle of the Saiga-12 shotgun and the KA-1212T or KA-1212BRT can be threaded on.  Welding is not recommended due to how thin the wall of the shotgun barrel is.

Q: "Does the KA-1212BR peform as well as the KA-1212 as far as patterning, recoil reduction, and flash suppression?"
The KA-1212 has a slight edge over the KA-1212BR on all three, but they are so close in performance that the difference is negligible.

Q: "Can the KA-1212 or KA-1212BR be permanently attached to a barrel to count towards the >18" length required by law?"
Yes it can, the BATF specifies certain methods of "permanent attachment" so don't go off thinking that JB Weld or Loctite is going to make the cut.  We generally use high-temp silver solder for permanent attachment here.  The ATF requirements are as follows
"The ATF procedure for measuring barrel length is to measure from the closed bolt (or breech-face) to the furthermost end of the barrel or permanently attached muzzle device. Permanent methods of attachment include full-fusion gas or electric steel-seam welding, high-temperature (1100F) silver soldering, or blind pinning with the pin head welded over. Barrels are measured by inserting a dowel rod into the barrel until the rod stops against the bolt or breech-face. The rod is then marked at the furthermost end of the barrel or permanently attached muzzle device, withdrawn from the barrel, and measured.

Q: "How much length does the KA-1212 or KA-1212BR add to the length of the barrel?"
A: This one is easy, both units are 2.75" long and both add exactly 2" to the barrel when installed.

KA-1222A FAQ's

Q: "Is the KA-1222A considered a muzzlebrake or a flash suppressor?"
A: Actually, the KA-1222A, KA-1222B, and KA-1230T are designed to do both extremely well.  They are a "hybrid" muzzle attachment made specifically to offer the benefits of a muzzlebrake and a flash suppressor in one handy package.
