Like some has posted in the past we do not have threads but just machine marks. I ended up going with a pin on muzzle brake I ordered from Cheaper then Dirt which is a AK-74 style.
You add it but knocking out the pin to closet to the end of the barrel and sliding the brake on that goes around the front sight and replace the front pin with one that's longer to compensate for the brake being added..(it should come with the brake.)
here's what I got, and it's actually made by NC StarAKS-015 - AK-47 Pin-On Muzzle Brake Dual Hole for Russian or Chinese
It fit very snug and tight, no problems what so ever with this. It's also got a nice finish that is very similar to our guns.
