    I have a 2002 model SAR-1 with a bare muzzle. I shoot USPSA with it and would like to add an AKM-style slant brake.


    (1) Do I have to use a U.S.-manufactured brake to avoid 18 USC 922(r) issues?

    (2) Where do I get a brake that will fit the SAR-1's barrel? (I understand there are different barrel diameters?)

    (3) What thread specs does the barrel need to be threaded to?

    (4) How is the brake secured? Spring-loaded pin? I don't want it permanently attached in case I decide it increases muzzle blast/flash too much.

    (5) I was planning to have a local gunsmith thread the barrel, but how hard is this to do yourself, out of curiosity?

    They are available, it all depends on what you do to your rifle, you must stay under the 10 parts rule.

    They are available here http://www.tapco.com/proddesc.aspx?Id=1443d0cd-1be6-46e4-ac59-055f322563c1 I used the AK-74 style brake on my SAR-1 that was also made in 2002.

    With the brake listed above it is the standard AK thread pitch of 14 x 1 LH.

    Yes, I bought mine from here http://www.e-gunparts.com/productschem.asp?chrMasterModel=101ZzAK47

    It is very easy to do yourself, kits can e purchased here http://www.shop.preciseinnovationsllc.com/product.sc;jsessionid=33EE94552048F2358207EF28785CB845.qscstrfrnt02?categoryId=1&productId=75

    You can rent a barrel threading kit from Dinzag

    Here in Houston, there are a number of gun shops that will thread the barrel.

    The one I use charges $20.
