I recently bought a MAK-90. When I went to thread the muzzle, I noticed it had been turned down forward of the FSB.
WTF? Were they imported this way, or was it done after it came into the U.S.?

Anyway, do I have any options for threading and putting some type of FH/supressor on it?

I'd like to know this too. I'm in the same boat.

they were threaded when they where imported and the threads were ground off for the ban....my 1st mak90 had that....i ended up getting a reg 14x1lh slant break and jb welded it on...the threads touched the barrel enough so i just put a little extra weld on it...you could alco get a fsb that is threaded itself...not 100% sure but i think i heard that a bulgarian would work.....there's also another option that has to do with different threading but i'm not sure how that works.....

You will probably have to thread it 1/2x28 rh thread. Go to Global Trades web site and check out their brake section. Just about all the brakes that they carry are available in both the "standard" 14x1.0 lh and 1/2x28 rh thread. Do a search for wjm here on the board and he's got the kits for rent in both sizes. The good ol' 'merican 1/2" thread should do it. Madtechcool

Sounds like alot of work, maybe you should just sell it to me !!! Next to my ARs the Mak 90 is my favorite shooter, what a great rifle, wish I had kept a few more. Sold all but one of them and have been kicking myself ever since.
