Where can I find a suppliier for barrel threading dies? I have saiga and other rifles in several calibers with many different barrel ODs. I know where to rent...but I want to buy and learn. At the metal shop, my friend has all the standard industrial stocks and dies for non-gunsmithing work. I need to find the standard x39, .223, 45 & 9mm barrel threading dies and the bore guides too? Can anyone name some suppliers? Thanks for any help.

This page has kits for AK 14x1 LH die & pilot and 1/2x28 RH die and pilot which is for the AR-15 style rifles. The AR-10 uses a 5/8x24 (I think).

I just bought a 14mm x 1 LH die on ebay from seller "Merlintools", $8 for the die and $6 for shipping from China. He has over 10 listed now.


I also talked to a eBayer/machinist about making a thread guide for me also for my MAK-90. The same machinist is making guides for 10/22's and they work great. He is currently selling the 10/22 guides now on eBay. I told him to make several guides for AK's with a .3105 shaft and 14mm LH threads and sell some here on EE too. It's a wait and see on that though. I know I'm getting one guide for sure at a little bit of a savings from what is list on my reply here and the first reply also.

Also I did a web search and found....


Buy a guide here separate and the die on eBay, that would be cheaper than the $49-$59 kits if you have the handle already.

Good threading info on the linked site above.

You can also rent the tools to thread or crown your barrels....


Having access to a machine shop is a plus for you. You need to start with the barrel being the right size to thread to start with. A die can't do what a lathe can.

Excelllent inf...thanks much. I know about Dinzag & Priecise IInno...I can't get an email response from either and the ph# for Precise is malfunctioning...Dinzag doesn't offer ph#. Some of my barrel ODs are not "standard". So before I plunk down the $$$...I need tech advice on what will work for a given OD. I found a couple at Brownell's too...will call them and BlackjackBuffers on Monday and try and speak to a tech rep.

Thanks Wyldman & Towertopper for your help.

I hate dead links!

I sent you a IM with the e-mail of a guy that is making mine now for $13,50 and $3 shipping. He'll make what ever you need as long as he has the dies to do it.
