Aftermarket AK muzzle breaks that still allow the original Rommy Slip on Bayonet to be used?

One of the sites members was asking about after market muzzle breaks that would still allow the original WASR-10 bayonet to be used. Anyone any ideas? While not really a muzzle break, the Tapco Intrafuse AK M16 Style Muzzle Brake might still allow the bayonet to be mounted, but since I don't have one here to try it out I have emailed my contact at Tapco to ask him if he thinks it would still fit... I'll update this post as I hear back...

Heard back from my Tapco contact within hours. Boy those guys have always been very helpful; great service. He is traveling to the SHOT show but he asked a colleague to check and get back to us.

Message from the ever helpful Tapco Customer Service:
As you can see unfortunately the muzzle device will not allow the bayonet to slip over it:(. With that I am starting to doubt which aftermarket muzzle attachment will allow the bayonet to still slip on...

Chris-
I got together with my R&D department on the matter, and it appears the diameter of the M16 Style Muzzle Device will be too wide for the bayonet ring to fit. I took some measurements of the diameter, and it just seems too large for the bayonet ring. Sorry for the bad news.

Please let me know if you have any further questions,

Eric
