Default Uncovering a Threaded Saiga Barrel

I was looking at my 7.62x39 Saiga a little closer while I was cleaning it and it looked like there might be threads underneath. Is there anyone who could show me what I'm looking for? Like a picture of a threaded barrel before it was uncovered?

My google-fu turned up nothing >.<

If your Saiga 7.62x39 has threads under the FSB shroud, with a magnifying glass and direct lighting you should be able to see the start of the thread. You may also be able to insert a fingernail into the gap between the shroud and barrel and trace the threadís left-hand rotation (counterclockwise).

Here are two links from the Saiga-12 forum with photos of the threads:
