I have converted my Saiga to be featureless and comply with 922r. Photo shown here.

Based on certain things this rifle has there is a good possibility that the barrel is factory threaded. If it has a factory threaded barrel and I want to put on a muzzle break does it have to be welded or permanently attached to stay legal. I am wanting to use an Ak-74 style brake.

If permanently attached is required and since it is threaded would something link JB weld on the threads be adequate.

Thanks for your help.http://images5b.snapfish.com/232323232%7Ffp63277%3Enu%3D5879%3E%3B54%3E25%3A%3E WSNRCG%3D3289%3B4453534%3Bnu0mrj

You need to permanently attach barrel tips when measured from a closed bolt face to the end of the barrel you have LESS than 16". You are cool to screw yours on. Just make sure it is a COMPENSATOR or BRAKE and not a FLASH SUPPRESSOR with your featureless build or you will be creating a CA assault weapon. On my 7.62x39 featureless Saiga conversion build I used the slant AK brake and it works well. AK's when you fire them lurch upward to the right (check you tube videos of one firing and you can see it) at a 45 degree angle slightly, which is why you put the AK slant brake at a 45 degree angle to the right to keep it down.

Cobra,

Thanks any chance you would show me a picture of your rifle so I can get an idea.

Tapco makes the slant AK brake. U.S. part. Mine was left hand thread. Don't use the slip on ones with three locking screws. They fall off eventually. My rifle did not have threads so I bought the left handed russian threaded tap.

74 brake is a brake, thus cool for featureless. your first low light shoot will show why it's not a F/H.
jb weld, loctite, etc. are not acceptable by atf as permanant. silver solder or blind pin. not that it matters unless you plan on chopping the bbl. <16".

If your barrel isn't threaded, I think DPH makes a clamp device that allows you to screw on muzzle break. It appears to be sold out at all the stores that carry it though.
