    Question Golani Sporter: School me on this rifle.

    So I am looking at adding a Golani Sporter by Century to the arsenal. I test fired 20 rounds of cheap Monarch brass ammo. No issues feeding and was consistent. Of course I want to suppress it. The thread pitch is some oddball one like 13x1mm. A 1/2x28 brake will thread about half way down and stop. Should I just chop and thread for .5x28? I pulled the flash hider and measured the barrel and it was about 18 and 3/8" long, so plenty of room to cut and thread.

    Is there any reason not to suppress this other than the obvious its an "AK and AK actions arent the quietest suppressor hosts?" Anything to worry about regarding over gassing and damaging the gun? The gas tube does have some bleed off holes in it so I would think the excess pressures could be diverted. Should I get a rubber bolt buffer if so?

    Ammo: Can I run 5.56 ammo? Or only 223 as it is marked 223? Steel run ok in these? They are a ak variant after all. Mags seem to be available for these at decent prices. Im pretty sure the bore is not chrome lined.

    What about wear n tear part availability? Anything else you AK guys can throw at me is greatly appreciated!

    Thanks

    There are plenty of surplus parts available, the ammo you should be able to use both. I don't know anything about the threading.

    Before I cut it, recommend looking at a thread adapter. Google '13x1mm thread adapter suppressor'. Would also double check the thread count. If you buy the adapter and decide you don't like it, then cut the barrel...the adapter doesn't seem that expensive. Many suppressors now come with adapter options...if you have a suppressor look for that manufacturers adapter.

    Looks like cnc makes an adapter.

    I just worry about cocentricity issues more so with adapters. I will be running a Omega 30 so I do have a little more margin for error. But to buy a adapter then a cocentricity rod I may be able to spend a few buck more for a chop n thread job that will be cut square. I know I know once you cut it you cant put it back. But to run an adapter and a asr comp I will be adding a good bit of OAL making it pretty front heavy. I duno I have to consider my options.

    Hell, I may even consider getting it cut to 14" and change with a pin and weld ASR brake.

    Looks good, did you end up cutting the barrel down to 14.x" and pin/weld the brake on?

    I was taught that you can shoot .223 in a 5.56 barrel, but not 5.56 is a .223 barrel unless it is a .223 Wylde. This is why all of my ARs are in 5.56 except my pistol, which I decided to make a .223 Wylde. If there ever comes a situation where I have to shoot throw-down military ammo, I don't want to have issues.
