I noticed that too with the suppressor and light mount, so I wouldn't be surprised if that was the case. I know it isn't as practical, but I do kind of wish that I could get a Mini Beryl with a rear sight like the one you linked instead of the ugly railed one that we will be getting here in the US.krzychu22lr pisze: ↑11 sierpnia 2020, 00:45As for the suppressed Mini-Beryl - I don't remember mentioning it on Files, even in passing, but it's possible! I managed to find a bit better resolution photo, and it looks as if suppressor slides over the muzzle device, but is attached below it. Interestingly enough, Mini-Beryl with flashlight from your previous post, seems to have light mounted via interface on the bottom of muzzle device - possibly the same gun, and that interface was used for either light or suppressor? Again - who knows.
Was mentioned briefly in this post. Maybe it's not you, but I'm just assuming it is

I was really tempted for a while to get a WBP, but it's the prospect of FB Radom imports that ultimately killed that ambition.krzychu22lr pisze: ↑11 sierpnia 2020, 00:45Don't get me wrong - it's not a bad product. If you're in a market for classic-looking 7.62 AK, but don't care for Cold War commie factory connection, WBP is probably the best choice. But yes, it seems that they kinda believed in their own hype - WBP started manufacturing complete AKs in-house only in 2016. So it's still relatively new product. Their previous (2011-2015) offering on Polish market was either military rifles converted from full-auto to semi-only, or guns made from demilled rifles and parts kits. WBP was really only assembling that guns, and all the parts were still Łucznik manufacture from decades ago.
BTW: I completely understand your interest in not exactly obscure guns - I'm sort of the same way. Especially when it comes to pistols - guns like MAG, Bernadelli P-18/P.One, Vektor. These ain't groundbreaking designs, but it's interesting to see how smaller companies creatively adapted ideas from big boys (Vektor/Denel wasn't that small, but you get the idea). That's probably why I'm interested in AKs so much - while they all seem identical, in detail you can see a lot of personal touches between various manufacturers.
Funnily enough, when it comes to collecting those sorts of underappreciated guns, it's mostly pistols for me too (as shown by me having 5 Polish handguns and 0 Polish rifles). I of course like rifles as well, though my interests there are just less well-defined. AKs certainly do interest me more than most other rifles on the market and I think a lot of that appeal comes both from what you've mentioned and also from all the different furniture and gadgets that were made for them. They're kind of like expensive Barbie dolls that go bang if you think about it like that too much
