2. What type of muzzle devices or thread pitch do I need to look for when I buy the replacement? (will any AK muzzle device work?)
3. Is it even legal for me to do this modification myself, or am I temporarily creating an AW when I expose the threads on the muzzle?
Any help would be appreciated! Oh and of course I'll post pics after it arrives!
I believe it's just a tac-weld. You can remove it yourself. Pistols are not subject to 922r/925D. It's threaded 14x1 left hand, like your standard AK 47 type muzzle thread. It maybe a bit longer though. Obviously the AK pistol is an AW without a maglock and 10 rounder. After it's been Californicated, threaded barrels is not a problem.
