    Are you looking to install a brake or a suppressor? If it were me, I'd press the barrel out of the trunnion and thread it on a lathe. Don't fall for the TAT die sets. I just threaded an AK pistol barrel last night for 1/2-28...came out great. I'll post some pics tomorrow.....

    if you want to take barrel off and ship to me i will take care of it for you. Even with shipping, i can beat any shops price.
    And yes, i do on a lathe, concentric with the bore.

    Brad has done barrel threading for me along with other things and I am 100% satisfied with the quality of his work.
