Gun FAQ

AK47 (1)

Hey, I purchased a MAK-90 some time ago…

Hey, I purchased a MAK-90 some time ago, and recently found out it had a threaded barrel. It had a cover over the threads that had been tack welded on, and after a recent trip to the range they managed to shear off (not sure why, but pleased with the result). Anyway, I recently purchased an AK-74 style muzzle brake from Tapco, and with some light use of a small file to get the welds ground off, I put the new brake on with no problem (it fits very evenly). But… it is a little loose, and though it does have clearance for the bullet to pass through, the opening is not nearly as wide as that on a slant-cut muzzle brake. As of now I have had no problems shooting with it (the bullet does not strike the muzzle brake on the way out—yet) But it is noticeably loose (it does have the spring-loaded pin keeping it steady, but it can be wiggled with the hand). Should I be concerned about it wearing the threads, or wiggling when I shoot and possibly getting more loose (to the point of being a hazard)? AK47

 

 

without seeing it I can only go with what you describe

SOunds like a typical AK muzzle device

Go to a gun shop and ‘wiggle’ a few other types of AK47 you’ll see that most if not all have some room to wiggle

Whats your opinion on the Famous Ruger 10/22 carbine?

The 10-22 is a great .22 rifle

Very easy to cusomize and accurize

Almost everyone I know owns at least one

In your opinion what is more acurate out of the box. tikka t3 super varmit or remington model 700 sps. for example

Hard to say, both are accurate. 
Tikka is guarenteed 
But the 700 is also a good rifle
