  1. I went ahead and installed the 74 FSB. The only other thing I may do to it is upgrade the buttstock, perhaps with the new Magpul Zhukov stock. Here she is:
  2. Short for Thread Alignment Tool, which is exactly what you're talking about with the thread guide.
  3. Nope, my mistake was using a cheap ass non-adjustable die, and the TAT fit a little loose. I could probably get by with it as is, but subconsciously it would bother me.
  4. I'm leaning towards getting the threaded 74 FSB. Even if I cut the barrel, and I don't think I have enough room to play with, I'd still have to get it crowned, and that would easily cost as much as the 74 FSB.
  5. So I decided to thread my barrel, but I skimped on the tools. I got a cheap non-adjustable die off Amazon, and was a little apprehensive at first, because the TAT fit a little loose in the die. Because of the cheap POS die, the threads are just slightly over-sized, and despite my patience and trying to be as careful as possible, the threads are a slight out of alignment, though I don't think it's so far out of alignment to cause any problems. So I'm faced with a dilemma. First, I'm going to return the die. Fortunately, it was fulfilled through Amazon, so I won't have to pay return shipping. Wh
  6. This is the stock I currently have: http://www.kicklitestocks.com/ak-saiga-items/field-series-6-position-stock-ak-stamped-receiver-detail What I plan on doing eventually is getting this: http://www.akoperatorsunionlocal4774.com/2014/06/ak-m4-stock-adapter-rifle-dynamics-gen-ii/ and going with a mil-spec tube and a decent buttstock.
  7. I saw that, and it looks good. My only issue is that I plan on using a 14x1 brake, and there's only one 14x1 brake that I know of that will fit flush with 1" deep threading, and that's the faux 74 brake sold by Dinzag. Most 14x1 brakes have 5/8-3/4" deep threads, which won't work for a flush fit. I might go the route you did and fabricate my own detent pin from drill stock. My die, TAT, and die stock will be arriving tomorrow. I still haven't ordered my muzzle brake, I'm waiting to hear back from Circle 10 AK if they have the Jet Brake on hand, otherwise I'm going to order the Manticore N
  8. I'll have to move the FSB forward, as it's a 16" barrel. I could always cut and recrown, but then I'd either be a felon in the eyes of the evil BATFE, or I'd have to permanently attach the muzzle brake to keep it legal, neither of which are acceptable options to me. And an exposed notch isn't too bad, and if I ever get tired of it I could swap out the FSB.
  9. But I'm a cheapskate. If I can reuse something I already have, I will. Personally, I prefer the slimmer appearance of the 14x1 devices. Also, the brake I'm considering (the SRVV Jet Brake) is less expensive for the 14x1 version. I don't mind the extra work, and to me I'd rather invest time than money.
  10. Hi everyone. I've lurked on this forum for a while now, and this is my first thread. I've got a Saiga 7.62x39, and I have cut the barrel shroud and will be threading for a muzzle brake. The question I have is this: is it possible to reuse the FSB? I noticed that my FSB is not dimpled and is secured by pins, just like a standard AKM. I'm thinking about removing the FSB, cutting the shroud off completely, installing a detent, then reinstalling further forward on the barrel so that a muzzle device will fit flush against the FSB. Any thoughts on this? Has anyone successfully done this type of modi
