If it does turn out NOT to be a threaded barrel, which I SERIOUSLY doubt, there are plenty of gunsmiths around here that can fix that for a reasonable fee.

I've removed the brakes of two STG barrels that were silver soldered on. You have to heat the barrel to red hot to get the solder to melt when installing and heat it again to red hot to take it off. Both still shoot to the accuracy standards the STG is famous for, 1.5-2 moa with surplus.

Necro posting!

I recently picked up a nice ban era STG58 on a LMT T2. Of course it had on soldered on Stoli brake.

I found this thread followed it. What a frigging pain but it worked. I heated the brake up not hte barrel and got it turning. I clamped some vice grips on it and then had to use a hammer on the grips to get it off.

Of course my DSA made FH won't thread on.

Thanks to ratas calientes if you are still around.

I'm still here. Sorry about the photos disappearing. Glad to year you got your brake off.

So . . . why won't the DSA FH fit? I suppose the threads on your barrel are nice and clean now?

The explanation was plenty good enough. No photos needed.

The threads are good. It is DSA copy of a Browning long FH. The threads won't engage. Either DSA mis-marked it/screwed up the machining or the guy I got it from mis remember what he had. He did buy if from them for an stg58.

It seems like the end of my barrel is hitting before it engages.
