Question Removal of muzzle nut on ak47

I have a WASR 10/63 and it came with a muzzle nut and a spot weld on the bottom of it. It looks as if it's threaded on, then spot welded. So i would like to some how take that nut off and add a muzzle brake. How is this done? Are there threads under this nut? If i can add an after market brake do i need to add a weld to it to make is CA legal?

Just cut the weld, unscrew the muzzle nut and screw on the muzzle brake of your choice. As long as your barrel is +16" without a muzzle attachment, you do not need to permanently attach anything to your barrel. Also, remember that you need to keep your rifle to 10 or less imported parts since 922(r) still applies.

So should i use a dermal to shave that weld off? And it is a reverse thread right?
About the 922r law. How is any cop ever going to know whats USA parts and whats not? but either way im going to get a USA brake.

If its anything like the weld on the DRACO's a dremel will do the job just fine. It took me about 5mins and thats only because I was trying to be careful.

Yep, just use a cutting wheel and carefully cut the weld and grind it down. Just because 99.999% of LEOs don't know of this obscure Federal law doesn't mean that it should be ignored. In fact, 922(r) references "muzzle device" so, even your muzzle cap/thread protector is considered one of the parts that counts.

Just a side note: 922(r) ONLY applies to the assembly of long guns which can not be imported in their current configuration. It does not apply to possession or ownership of said guns.

there is, or should be, a spring loaded locking plunger on the fsb. you will need to depress to remove. don't expect the new brake to thread on tightly, they fit loose.

yah i know how the plunger works. What can be put on the treads to keep it tight? lock tight maybe? maybe a DOT of JB weld where the old weld was? i know it will have to be something that handles some heat.

Be careful about locktight, I did used that, and it wound up gumming up the plunger so it wont come back out.

Don't put anything on there to keep it tight, the spring and detent does that job.

I've tested about half a dozen brakes on my AK pistol. The most effiecient one I've found is an AK74 style brake. The next best is one I bought from K-VAR a couple years ago. They don't seem to list it right now though.
