Threading SKS

    Hi, I am researching threading a norinco SKS barrel that was cut just before the bayonet lug. I am curious if it could simply be threaded using one of the readily available kits or whether the 'new' muzzle may be a different size than the original muzzle before it was cut? Any advice would be much appreciated.

    If the barrel is tapered, it will be tapered for the entire length. If it's not tapered (and I don't believe SKS barrels are) then the diameter should be the same as was originally at the muzzle, making it entirely possible to use one of the kits found with a google search. Good luck.

    No, threading isn't "evil". For a long period of time they refused to allow any rifle to be imported that had a threaded barrel, because it "could" accept a flash hider. However, it's not on the 922(r) list, and now they've lightened up on that significantly. You're allowed to thread it and just install a brake.
