Is the barrel on my Maadi ARM threaded? There seems to be a muzzle nut welded onto the end of the barrel with two welds and I was just wondering if dremmeling the welds, and taking that off would expose threads.

Thanks

HECK YEAH ! Repeat after me, "Dremel is our friend".

Anyone know what type threads it has on it?

14mm x 1mm LH = standard AK threads !

Post AWB zip it twist it off and screw on the new slant compensator.

Remember , the threads are Left Hand so left is tight , right is loose. (opposite of normal threads)

We pulled the nut off my friends WASR and all the threads had been turned down. The barrel diameter was .500. I guess he can thread it 1/2 x 28 and use AR stuff.

If that's the case on my ARM, and I do use AR stuff, I'd assume that you would have to open up an end of a '74 style comp for it to clear the 7.62mm bullet, correct?

Maadis are Maadis and WASRs are WASRs

There are 14 mm x 1mm LH threads on your ARM.

One less question, do I need 7 more US parts to do this or does that only apply if/when I get rid of that dumb thumbhole stock?

If you are going to have a compensator (why else would you uncap the threads??) you need 6 US parts.

stock
pistol grip
forends
gaspiston
hammer
trigger
disconnector
muzzle device
mag body
mag floorplate
mag follower

these seem to be the most common swapped - needed - parts pick 6 of them and you're good.
