View Full Version : DSA SA58 Muzzle BRAKE Removal
August 01, 2005, 19:31
I have an SA58 with a long Stoll type muzzle BRAKE that is silver soldered on. This is not the integrated type. Is it safe to assume (gasp!) the the barrel is threaded like normal? If I used a MAPP gas torch to remove the BRAKE, could I then just install a long Stoll FH?
Also how much 'damage' will the heat do to the parked finish? Will the silver solder be difficult to get off?
Thanks for any advise you can give.

Before reading the post Ratas referred to, I would have let it alone. To a few on the barrels we soldered during the "dark" days we notched the threads for better solder hold. Regretful to this day but who knew it would turn out much better than hoped? Easy to do if careful.

I knew someone had to have done this already, I just couldn't find the post.
I think I'll go for it. May post some before & after pics too.
