  1. Only thing with a pipe cutter is that you can't get nice and snug with the FSB which makes it look a little hinky with the extra space between the FSB and your muzzle device IMO.
  2. There wouldn't be any disadvantage to welding it in place though would there? I do currently have another tap, Drilled the hole with a 7/64th like I was supposed to, used plenty of oil but the tap would not bite, once it did it snapped.

  6. Took me probably 45 mins or less to convert my Saiga with a hand drill, a dremel, a flathead screwdriver, an allen wrench and a hammer. The feed ramp has posed a little bit more of an issue, broke the tap inside the hole so I'll be welding it in place.
