I was taking the welded muzzle cap off my new Maadi, which was tougher than the others I have done. I finnaly got it off, but grinded down a couple of the treads. Not deep, didnt cut threw the barrel. I was so mad. I thought I ruined the gun I have been waiting for. I put the new slant brake on and it din't miss a beat. It threaded fine and looks great. It does not seem to have compromised the integraty of the barrel or brake at all. It is as loose/ tight as my other Maadi. There seems to be no differance at all. Anybody ever do this? Thanks, Dave

I always use a file to avoid that kinda "oh shit" scenario, AK's are tough, it'll be fine ...

New muzzle nut went right on after cleaning up the threads, no worries.


I'll be doing an Arsenal SA-M7 Classic next week,are they pinned and welded or just pinned?I don't have the rifle yet,I'm doing a little trading with Firedog51d.

Why would you want to do that,I had a MAK 90 someone threaded the muzzle on and must have had problems,it looked like they tried to get too big a bite without backing off of their die.It ended up only having about a half inch of usable threads,but it worked fine and,as Templar said,you could'nt see it with the slant brake in place.
