Anybody have any tips or tricks in removing this brake? I have a general idea but just wanted to see if anyone had any experience with this.

Thanks

Yeap just finish mine I cut it in half with a die grinder then split it with a cold chissel, when I had it appart found out the pins are at 3 and 9 oclock,be careful ussing a die grinder or you cut up the barrel threads.

yes it was an AK type on a 14.5 barrel,the next step is to install the phantom fs and pin it perm for a total barrel lenth of 16.1" . Will up date later due to work in progres

wanna do the same...how difficult was that to remove that ak brake ? how many inches did you cut with the grinder?

NO NO NO inches no, just cut the ak brake just aft of the side openings to see better then measured the thickness of the brake at area just foward of the lock washer, then deduct the .50 for the barrel threded area + .10 for safety margin. After the math is done cut a grove at 6 and 12 oclock then using a hammer and a cold chissel break it in half. Now if you lucky to find the pins at 3 and 9 oclock then is just a matter of grinding the weld of and pulling the pins out and unscrew the brake,but 99% of the time is not that simpled
