I got to put everything back together today. Here is what it looks like.

I really appreciate all your support on this kind of stuff. I really wish I had more time to be here to be honest.

I think it turned out wonderfully.
Have you done any compensators?

Also, does the red dot co-witness with the irons?

Thank you @Mosinvirus!

I made one for @MikeBlack47 for his AK47. He wanted one that didn’t make people next to him on the firing line def, so I angled the ports slightly forward.
Making a brake
Mike in return put up the videos of it performing.

Yes the red dot does co witness with the iron sights. It is a 1/3 co witness so the lower 1/3 of the red dot has the iron sights. This makes for a much less congested sight picture, and I highly recommend it if your using a fixed front sight with a red dot.

Yeah @Giantspeed unfortunately messing around on a lathe chews up a lot of time, or at least in my case it does.
