Default Is this possible?

K so I just ordered the conversion kit from carolina shooters supply and will be installing it on my saiga 7.62x39 next week... However I would really like to add a muzzle brake to the gun too. This is where the problem comes in. First off the barrel is the same size all the way to the tip.( from vids I've seen the first 3/4 inch is smaller diameter) is this possible to even put a brake on it?

Also I live in the big bad state of NY and if I don't pin/weld the brake into place that it becomes one of those oh so deadly and evil assault weapons..
I figure I I give the gun to a machine shop they could probably get it all done but what would that cost me? Any reasonable price u guys think it would be? Thanks guys

I wouldnt let a machine shop do it. Welding generates a LOT of heat in a small area and if not done right can damage a gun barrel.

Consult with a gunsmith in your area on what minimum is acceptable to your slave masters. Some slave states allow their slaves to use solder or a light tack weld.

Jon, For years I brought Evil Weapons to NY for shoots, private ones. I even use to bring my 9mm to dispatch hogs at butchering time. Save my Sister $19.00 fee for each times 8 hogs. There are no local police or sheriffs. The State police drove down a highway 6 miles away at 7:30am and 4:30pm. that was it. There are more fun guns upstate then you would ever imagine!

I must say good choice in rifle, from what I have seen you can't add a muzzle brake because the one already on it is part of the barrel. But I'm not 100 percent sure.

There isn't one on the gun.... It's just a straight barrel... Ik it won't count towards 922r compliance but I already have that covered with other mods

Ok so asked a local shop who is also a gunsmith and he said I would be arrested in seconds if I put a muzzle break on the gun... He said since it didn't come pinned from the manufacture then you can't thread it yourself...

Still don't see how he is right on this... If you thread pin and weld it on the when you do try to take it off u will destroy the threads.. And there's nothing in nys law that says it needs to be from the maker of the gun and not done by yourself.

Can the brake be cut or drilled into the barrel? I have seen a lot of guns with built in brakes. I am sure glad I live in a free state.
