Hi guys im new to this site. I recently bought barrel thread adapter for my Saiga 7.62x39 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0057PX49C/ref=oh_o00_s00_i00_details. After i cut the appropriate length of the metal(?) shell around the tip of the barrel i found out that the adapter was slightly too small unless im supposed to force it on with a rubber mallet or something. I was curious if the saiga 7.62 barrels are a lil thicker than other barrels. I plan on returning the adapter though though. I just got http://www.brownells.com/.aspx/pid=27512/Product/AK-47-AMD-MUZZLE-BRAKES as well (the 3rd muzzle brake down). I havent threaded my barrel but holding the brake up near the barrel it seems to small as well. Do you think it would fit after threading it?
