Cetme muzzle brake removal?
 
How do I remove the BRAKE on my cetme? Is it just a blind pin or is it welded? Right or left hand thread?
Thanks for any help.

Securing varies (it's a Century) but mine was pinned. I wire wheeled the brake to find the pin, dremeled a notch, and used a nutcracker wedge to split the soft steel. Std righty tighty lefty loosey threads.

Thanks. I'll give it a try. Anybody know of a US made part I can add to my centrury cetme?

I got a fake brake that looks almost identical to the original (slots don't go all the way through) from Gunplumber.

GP's been making noises about offering genuine gee-whiz replica US made muzzle dinguses (or is that "dingi"). Gotta bone up on my latin. in flagrante delicioso, er sumpin' lahk thay-ut.

If your CETME will take G3 mags, there is a group buy going on on the CETME forum at gunboards.com for US made floorplates/followers. FAC has the US made floorplates/followers available.

The blind pin should be located at 6:00 on the brake.
Dremel the finish off until you see the outline of the pin.
Turn it over and smack the top of the brake with a big hammer until the pin moves out enough to grab it with pliers. (Mine fell out on the floor after 4 hits.)
After pin is removed, put a pipe wrench on the brake and unscrew it (RH threads).
Install new muzzle thingy and don't bother to make it permanent...(if the barrel is at least 16").

Don't forget that you need to add another listed US part if the new thingy is imported.

that break reduces the recoil of the weapon greatly, something that actually works better then what was on their originally.....I'm keeping it on both my CETME and G3 clone.

Of all my post bans with brakes, the CETME is the loudest and most abusive to bystanders. Hmmm, I might keep mine also...:bigangel:
