Default AK-47: Can I switch out flash hider for slant compensator?

As the title says... I am looking at a possible buy of a nice AK. It has everything I want, except for a slotted flash hider. I would prefer the slant compensator. Can these be swapped out, or are they permanently integral to the barrel?

Thanks,

Rufus

It depends on the "AK". My nephew ordered a WASR10 (semiauto AK-type rifle) maybe six months after a buddy picked one up. The buddy was mightily PO'd that he couldn't get the "barrel nut" off to install a different muzzle device. My nephew had noooo trouble gettin his nut off & ended up buying the device from the buddy.

These BS importation laws cause manufacturers to do some silly things to decent firearms at different times. Check the nut & ask the owner.
