and bought my first Kalashnikov. I picked up a Maadi MISR via a private sale for $200. New furniture and trigger are already ordered. The question now is how to attach a muzzle brake. Is it possible to buy a front sight block with the threaded end and pin a muzzle atachment to it to comply with the '94 Crime Bill? I appreciate any advice on options I have for installing one..

Unless I am way off...are you talking about the threads on the end of the Barrel? Not at all related to the front sight block. It has to be permanently attached----silver solder or arc-weld.

Thanks Campybob,

I think you have a solution I can work with. If I can fit a Bulgarian sight block on with the muzzle brake permanently attached, I think I am good to go.

It's geared towards Romanian rifles, but it applies equally to just about any AK: Romanian nuzzle brake FAQ

I measured the barrel forward of the sight block and it is .480". I assume that the barrel was turned down to remove the muzzle threads. I'll have to investigate switching the sight block to see if that is an option.
