Mosin Nagant, SKS, AK47 Gunsmith Services.

Limited Services due to arthritis.

As a request from many customers, I have limited my gunsmith services to barrel work only.  Thank you.

Site updated 24 JULY 2015

We strongly recommend to test fire your surplus Mosin Nagant rifle at a distance of at least 50 feet to make sure it is shooting straight.  Before you spend money on customizing.   We have seen some that can’t hit paper at 50 ft using a bench rest.


  M44 with ATI Mount and Stock. Type 74 Muzzle Brake threaded on the barrel.  The Type 74 is the best muzzle brake, cuts felt recoil by 33%. Less muzzle rise while shooting.  Felt recoil is like shooting a SKS.
When a ATI mount is installed correctly is the best low profile mount on the market.
Bolt handle and pull ring safety mod by max_shepherd.  See #12 below.
 Mosin Nagant, SKS and AK Services 
using Your Parts.  
Where to purchase Scope Mounts and Type 74 muzzle brake:
Barska Type 74 muzzle brakes have thread issues. 
FA Type 74 brake has a small diameter exit hole, only slightly larger than the bullet.  Tapco works perfect.
Save yourself time and by buying Tapco muzzle brake. Tapco costs less.

Any type of AK47 muzzle brake will work.  Though the T 74 works the best.

           Also see # 7 resize outer diameter in order to thread. This is for shortened barrels. If your barrel has not been cut, there is no turn down fee.
                             Note a barrel that is counter bored must be shortened in order to thread.
Any barrels that are threaded must have muzzle brake / flash hider installed by Roscoe World.
                                   This barrel thread is not for suppressors.
" I strongly recommend the Type 74, you won't be disappointed."  If your buying a T74 Brake please buy a Tapco Type 74 muzzle brake.

 All barrel threading is 14mm x 1mm left hand threads.
Muzzle Brakes are permanently attached, though if needed they can be removed with heat and a barrel vise.  They will not come off during shooting.
I only thread barrels that I install the muzzle brake.  Why?  So I know it is installed correctly and it won't come off while shooting.
Shipping costs:  Send UPS or USPS.   Purchase a shipping tube, the tube works great just pack the ends tight.  Describe as barrel.  The price you pay to send the barrel to me, will be your return cost.  Please pack the box tight with paper or other packing materials.  Please send the tracking number so I know when to expect your package.
                        Over pay on shipping or services, I do give refunds.
