    any industrial tool house can get you a die nut, but this is really not the proper way to do muzzle threading.

    First of all the diameter of the section being threaded has to be the right diameter for the threads. You can't just thread anything bigger to 1/2-28 which pretty much means a lathe and at the very least diassembly of the rifle to a bare receiver (much better bare barrel) and the lathe will have to have a larger enough pass through in the headstock to have the barrel pass through it.

    I think AKs (at least the 7.62x39 variety) are usually threaded to M14x1.0 Left Handed threads. But if you are cutting your own you could go with a more American 5/8x24 RH (like if you had a .30 cal suppressor you wanted to use on multiple guns).

    My Mak90 has had the threads turned down that were on it originally.
    I just want to put a slant brake on it.
