I played with the end and found out it is screwed in. I'm not sure yet if it's soldered but it got me thinking. If the end was removed a piece of 1" OD pipe could be inserted and shaped to make a pretty good looking compliance part. Read a ATF letter somewhere where substantial modification qualified. You would only have to add an inch or two to make it work. Like the bell on the Krink. Anybody tried this?

LOL!!! As soon as I get this thing figured out I'll post some. Have an easy out wedged it the end now. If that don't get it loose it's torch time! I don't see any reason then MB that came with it can't be extended to a good looking brake. Everybody seems to only work on the other end.

The end was easy to get off. I wrapped the flats in masking tape and clamped it in my vise. I heated the end with a MAPP gas torch and it poofed a little smoke before it could turn red. The easyout turned the end cap right out. I quenched both parts quickly and had to smack the end of the easyout w/ a hammer to make it clear the end cap. I took the body of the MB to ACE hardware and started screwing in bolts to find the thread size. Surprise, standard 1/2" black iron pipe screws in. A little slack, but pipe fitters dies can be adjusted out to make a tighter fit.

The brass 1/2" water fittings turned in tight and seized up but looked like shit. Now I have to find a piece of 1" steel tubing with heavy walls that I can turn a shoulder down and have threaded. Guy at ACE hardware said he'd charge me $1.50 to do it. I'll have to leave a couple inches of extra on, but I can Dremel it off with a cutoff wheel. After I get the tubing to fit I'll use my torch to weld it and then grind it down. Now to look at pictures of muzzle breaks and choose a style. The 30 bucks I saved will be spent at the new Harbor Freight store opening up in Saginaw. Need another set of bolt cutters and a stamp set so I can put my name and USA on my new muzzle break. BTW, anyone near that store, they have 20 ton hydraulic H presses for $169.95 on sale. Electronic digital calipers are $19.95. Grand opening sales are good.

This is incorrect, It will still be an imported part.
This may help you out concerning barrel length, but does not help your parts count

are you talking about a extention that would go between the barrel and brake to make it the legal length? If so there out the for about $10

No, He is talking about extending it in the other direction, from the front of the brake.
