yes, i did have the plunger pushed down. What do you mean by PB blaster?This may sound very stupid. But did you push the detent (button) down and turn it at the same time? (this is only if its not welded) Also, try a little break free or PB blaster, friend had one that wasnt welded and it was stuck like it was. PB took it off nice and easy.
I wanted to upgrade to the PWS FSC47 brake. I really don't care how beat up the old brake gets because i don't plan on saving it. I did put some WD40 on it an let it soak in for a while then try it, but it didn't work.So..what is it that you don't like about the original slant brake? Just asking. Looks like some epoxy of some sort behind it. I'm thinking a little application of heat may help, like one of those small plumber's torches for sweating copper. What sort of tools have you tried in your attempts to remove it? If you are using clamp type pliers, it may be crushing it down even worse. If you don't care about saving the original brake, then I might suggest using a small pipe wrench and good vise, EZ outs or pipe removers (use a size large enough not to go into the muzzle!). I also might cut it with my Dremel tool and still save the threads. I am an aspiring gunsmith, and I'd treat every firearm like my own. I've never screwed up anything. I would try the heat first. The brake should be softer than the barrel steel. We need Rock and Glock back since he's more of an AK expert. We'll get things going one way or another, just don't get impatient and do something you'll need to fix.
Roger that. I'm not real familiar with the brake you're wanting to add. Only reason I am in the loop on the AK's is because of small experience, ownership, and a certain respect and love of the platform. I don't keep myself as up to speed as I should in some areas.I wanted to upgrade to the PWS FSC47 brake, it has less muzzle climb and reduces recoil. I'm not trying to save the old one so i really don't care how beat up it gets.
No. Let's just give it a while, and more help will arrive. You need more input before you do anything. I'm serious. Your firearm is an investment.I don't have a torch available at the moment, but do you think that a lighter or candle would work if i just let it sit on there for a while?
