I am trying to get a slant muzzle brake off a Yugo M70BA1. We were able to get a 1/2 to 3/4 turn on the thing, but now it seems locked in place. We have tried to use a long pair of channel-lock pliers on it, to no effect. The pliers just slipped around the muzzle brake. Any ideas?

There are no flats for a wrench to fit on it. They are supposed to be finger tight, I thought, and retained by a spring detent. It was not turning without the effort of a wrench from the start.

Century uses new Green Mountain barrels for their Yugos.

The threads may be a little "off".

My Yugo was the same way. I had to use some leather scraps and some channel locks to clamp down and put my a** into it.

You know AK threads are backwards right? Left-hand? Did you try to leftie-loosie it and just torque it down? :) Also, some have a little pin you push in, but if you got it turned 1/2 a rotation it probably doesn't have the pin retainer plunger thing.

yes, thank you guys very much, it did. We let a soldering iron lay on it, and cranked it with little effort, in the wrong direction. Which was the right direction. Damn commies.

they did their part, you didn't do yours. 'Always read, follow, and understand the manufacturer's directions before attempting any repairs or servicing the item.' And also, the dead give away should have been...'muzzle device for 14/1 LH threads' :cool:
