    Default Threading a post-ban STG-58 barrel

    I have a post-ban STG-58 with a naked muzzel. Now that the ban is over, I would like to add the standard STG-58 flash hider. Can someone point me to the nessesary dies and any other tools needed to do this?

    Well, dies are the easy part. Hope you have room for one of these:





    The barrel OD needs turned down and there should also be a lead-in and out like in this pic:

    Ouch! Thanks for the quick reply. I have neither the space nor the $ for that. Has there been any success pinning, silver soldering, or welding one in place? I just want it to look more historically accurate. The muzzel attachment does not need to be removeable.

    Any 3 of those should work but WILL decrease the value of the gun.
    IMO - Better to spend the $50 and have it done. (and not because I do it, just an honest opinion)

    Thanks! My STG would be the last rifle I'd ever sell, but it's probably better to do it the right way.

    IIRC, FN uses 15x1 RH threads. Like HK. You should be able to thread it no prob. I'm not aware of a TAT tool like with AKs but you should be able to do it.

    Pookie the muzzle device thread for metric pattern fals is 9/16x24 left hand thread.

    Pac762 do yourself a favor and have the the barrel done by a pro. Pa Patriot does good work. As do a several other smiths at the falfiles. Threading the fal barrel is not is not straight forward as say a ak. If you have it done to spec you can pick and choose between milspec muzzle devices. Jim

    Do your self a favor and let a smith do it They do not charge that much for that service. It is pretty simple if you have the right equipment and tools. Should be chased and if not, cut with a die after machining.
