Question: I recently bought an AK47/WASR. I'm happy with it, but last week I bought a different muzzle break at a gun show to put on my WASR. When I tried to unscrew the slant break, I discovered it had Right Hand threads rather than the Left Hand threads that I thought were standard on all AKs. Not only that, the new muzzle break, 14mm LH, is wider than the threaded barrel, so the barrel threads are not the standard 14mm threads. Am I crazy or did I get a weird version of a WASR 10? Is there anything I can do to fix the barrel so it can take the standard 14mm LH threads?

Answer:If I am understaning you correctly, the barrel is much more narrow than the muzzle break you bought. right?
If this is the case then I bet you have a WASR that was turned down to remove all the threads from the barrel. Then someone threaded that again but used regular US threads.
Sound like this could be the issue? If so I guess you could find a sleave to fill the gap and get it threaded correctly on th einside & outside.. but wow that might be hard to fine / costly to build. Is it possible they used a standard US size thread so you could use Brakes for ARs or something? If so, they make AK brakes for the AR,a nd you could use them to get the original look the long way around.. if you follow me

I just bought one from a gun show today, and I've been reading these threads.
I just want to know why these AKs' are ragged on so much as being cheap and no good.
It's a very tight rifle.
I'm about to start cleaning it to get the grease out of it.
It seems to be a very tight AK.
Why so many negative opinions?
