    Ak barrel shortening

    Hi all wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of a gunsmith who could shorten my ak barrel and refit the front sight up against the gas block and thread for suppressor. Ive attached a photo for an example.

    Thanks all

    It’s already wearing a brake ?
    Has to be threaded surely ?
    Now, I’m no AK buff, my rifles are all for hunting, but I don’t see how that front sight can be moved back ?
    He nui to ngaromanga, he iti to putanga.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    That's a pic of what he wants to do I believe, not of the Ak in question.
