I was talking with a guy today on the phone who makes custom AKs about the possibility of him making a threaded FSB for me since k-var doesn't have them anymore (for 10 mths now I think?). I wanted him to spot weld a slip-on adapter (smooth inside) to a FSB so I could put a brake on instead of threading the barrel. He said he had tried it before, but because the SAR2 barrel was so thin, it caused the barrel to deform and he had to cut and re-crown the barrel. He also said it would drastically affect the accuracy of the rifle - for the worse. Basically, he said he would not do it.

My question is, exactly how could reaming out an adapter, sliping it over the barrel and spot welding it to the FSB (not the barrel) cause the barrel to distort? Is the barrel on the SAR2 that weak or thin? For that matter, what would happen if I threaded the barrel on either my SAR1 or SAR2? Wouldn't that be even worse?

I am totally new to the AK. Does this sound right to you guys? Couldn't it be made off of the rifle, welded, and then reinstalled? I am not talking about welding it to the barrel itself.


Thanks - Shon

I talked to Jayson at IGF and will be sending my SARs to him. After talking to him, I can say the guy I talked to yesterday was a little off. Thanks for the replys.

Thanks! The AR side of the house helped me big time on selection of my toys and this side is no different. I was kind of puzzled by what he said as it didn't make much sense unless he boo-booed? Any way, thanks for the help.
