    Ok, so I wanna make a muzzle brake to screw on my SKS, in place of the grenade launcher.
    What is the thread size, so I know which tap to get?

    Is it right hand?
    AK's have 14 x 1 counter clockwise thread so imho it should be the same in yugo SKS - it is still CCCP/USSR/ZSRR rifle.

    Or right hand thread is a counter clockwise thread?
    It could be confusing for me - properly translation from English to Polish.

    Could you modify your grenade launcher by drilling, maybe you another muzzle brake as a pattern?

    I thought about it, but turns out taking off or modifying the grenade launcher could actually violate the ATFs laws on the Yugo SKS.
    It actually might already be "illegal" since I have an aftermarket stock on it, but I bought it like that, so if it is illegal, I have no responsibility for the previous owner's actions.
    Man the ATF makes some confusing laws.
    TAKING OFF the GRENADE LAUNCHER makes it ILLEGAL???
    Come on, now...
