    i want to install a new compensator on my AK, but i cannot get the stock slant break off. It seems to be frozen on. I do not want to use too much force because i've scratched it up as it is.

    Has anyone had this issue with a WASR 10?

    If that doesn't work try twisting it to the left. ;)

    All else fails a hammer is your friend.

    oh yeah there is a pin in the front sight base that needs to be pressed in while you are twisiting it. if you didnt already know.

    it shouldnt be real tight in the first place should be sitting kinda flush with the FSB with the pin in the notch. ive yet to see one that you could actually get tight and get the pin to line up with the notch.

    It can be tacked on, and cosmo still seep out. They usually never completely weld them on. They just tack them in a few spots.

    Gunsmith = Guy who doesn't really know any more than you, he just doesn't mind torquing on your gun harder because it isn't his. LOL!!! :twisted:

    do you have a vise or access to a vice? you could stick it in there between a couple blocks of wood and crank down on it with a pair of channel locks or vise grips. slant breaks are a dime a dozen and unless you just tear the hell out of it i wouldnt worry about beating up the threads.

    hey, that break has reverse threads,and it might be cross threaded by some 9to5'er just lost in the process of building the greatest battle rifle ever made:cool:

    its either tacked on or epoxied on. my WASR-10 was like that. I used a dremel to cut it off. You could try heating it up and twitsting it off ;)
