Found this, Yugo M92 Thread Adapter to 5/8x24 (.308), I am hoping this will fit that massive bolt they have covering the thread and I won't have to saw it off. I will let you know if it works.

I also filed / put a radius on the top corners of the block to fit inside the receiver. The block eliminates all play and mates to the ACE adapter block so the ACE folding stock has a solid foundation with the slant cut receiver.
Please post close up pics.

I do not thnik that will work. You really need to cut the weld to get that nut off the muzzle. You will then have standard 14x1 LH threads.

Use a small hacksaw and go slow. Don't use one with the real thin blade because they tend to bend and go sideways a bit. It is very easy to do.

Why do you think Zastava did this? Why put something on there that would have to be evenually cut-off? Did they think that there was a muzzle brake/flash hider that could fit it? Why didn't THEY add one?

It is a US made M90 from a group buy years ago. I got it from a WTB add in the Marketplace in here, I think.
Did you use any spacers or crush rings with your new flash hider

No- I used the standard muzzle detent and spring. It either had one or I knocked the front pin out and installed one I bought from Apexgunparts. I do not recall if it had the pin in when I got it or not. Does yours have a detent pin or just a hole in the front face of the FSB where it meets the back of the muzzle nut?

Use a punch and hammer to knock the front fsb pin out and insert the spring then detent pin. Push the detent pin in and reinstall the fsb pin.

I used a M14 crush washer from CNC warrior to install my flash hider. Taking the FSB seemed like too much of a hassle. A file and some Cold Blue was all that was needed to take off and hide the weld on muzzle nut. I will post some pictures later on.

You only need to pop out one pin on the fsb. It takes 10 seconds.

Thought I would throw this thread regarding a Yugo M77., I posted in Gunsmithing here as well. Thanks to Dfreg10 and others for showing me the way to getting this rifle.

Dferg10...Just got the muzzle nut removed...had a professional due as I chickened out. I just bought a compensator from Brownells, a PWS. Here it is:

http://www.brownells.com/rifle-parts...prod45424.aspx

Also a barrel pin that I hope will fit. Will let you know and then post pictures.

Good. Do post pics. If you have a standard muzzle detent pin with a notch in it and spring it should fit. I have had a few pins that were a bit too long and a little filing of the rear and/or front of the pin did the trick.

What size detent pin did you use, just any standard one? It seems a pin for an AK is thick??

The detent plunger pint I bought is 8mm in diameter....would a 7mm diameter fit you think? I am not too worried about length as Dferg mentioned about just filing off both ends.

What "pin" are you speaking of? This started out as a plunger ., the diameter and length are in post #57. If you are talking a component pin the Yugo is unique at 2.5mm diameter. Not sure what you are talking about.

It is the barrel pin that locks in the compensator. It is located underneath the front aiming sight. There is a usually a notch in a the compensator (muzzle brake, flash suppressor) where the barrel pin locks into.

8mm is the barrel pin that fits the barrel channel at the trunnion. You are confused.

The plunger for the FSB is 4mm +/-.

Size and length detailed here earlier in this same thread>>

I added some Yugo M70 wood from Apex. I have a Ronin's grip inbound and will update with a pic when it arrives.

I wish I could find the sort of grip that you can get with the AR-15/M-4 that has the grip as part of the Magzine Well. I am not a big fan of what we call the Gangster Grip. I like to hug my rifle close to me....

I am replacing the pistol grip you see in the picture with a pistol grip made by Ronin's Grips. It is a US copy of a Yugo pistol grip. I just got one for my OPAP and love it. I ordered one for the M77 and a third one for my M70ab2.
