AK experts, I have an idea I would like to run by you all. I am going to thread my rebuilt MAK90 barrel for a muzzle device but I am thinking of going a different direction.

I was thinking of threading to Ĺ x 28 and putting on an extra A2 muzzle brake I have. Plus I will have more options with that thread size in case I want to change devices later on. I will also be pinning it the way I did my cousins, out of a piece of drill bit shank and a ball point pen spring.

I do have a question though, should the A2 be reamed to .308, .310 or .311? I have seen different opinions as to the size.

To the traditionalists out there, I have already gone a non-traditional route with the build so I donít feel bad changing it up a little. Itís not all tacticool, but I did go for an all plastic lightweight pig rig.

Thanks
Robert

Thread the muzzle to 5/8"X24 and go with an AR 10 brake

SJgunguy24, I though about going that route but I have this A2 brake just sittin here and there are just so many more options for the 1/2x28. (At least after I ream them)

Thanks

Do you really want the plethora of AR options, or just the look of the birdcage FS on your MAK-90 clone? There is a company that is threading AR muzzle devices in AK 14x1 LH thread.

Threading for AR devices will require you to also turn down the diameter of the muzzle.

By the way, there is a good variety of AK 14x1 LH devices.

69Mach1,

It boils down to me pretty much just being cheap. I already have the 1/2x28 die, A2 and reamers. But now thinking about having to break it back down to turn down for the 1/2x28.......

I might as well break down and spend the money on the 14mmx1 LH die and a new muzzle device.

Thanks for slappin me back to reality.:o

Anyone know who has thea YHM Phantom with 14mmx1 LH in stock?????

Thanks for the link on the flash hider. I have not purchased from dph yet. Looks like they have the die as well so it makes it even easier.

I always like finding new "toy" stores.

Thanks,
Robert

ae13291, I appreciate it but you are a little far to drive and I donít want to break it down to ship it.

Or were you talking rental or such?

Thanks,
Robert
