Muzzle Threading Instructions
Screw the TAT about 4-5 threads into the back of the die with the pilot sticking out in front. Insert die and TAT into handle, preferably lettered towards you and aligning at least one of the tightening screws in the handle with the divots in the die OD. Secure the barrel vertically in a padded vise.
Apply a good cutting fluid/oil to the die teeth and start cutting. It will take a little bit of vertical downward pressure to get started. Apply even downward pressure and rotate the die slowly. Repeatedly advance the die about 1/8 turn, then back it off to break up the shaving (chips).
Do not allow the face of the TAT to ever reach the barrel face. This could strip the teeth out, possibly damaging the TAT and ruining the few threads that you have cut on the barrel. Once you’ve cut about 4-5 threads, and before the TAT reaches the barrel face, unscrew the die completely, loosen the 2 tightening screws on the die holder, and remove the TAT.
With the TAT removed, put the die back in the handle and hand tighten the 2 tightening screws.Resume threading as above, breaking the chips and applying cutting fluid as you go.
Thread to the desired depth, blow off the threads and check the fit with whatever muzzle device you plan to use. You want the threads firm but able to screw on by hand.
If your threads are too large, tighten the 2 screws in the handle a little bit,apply more cutting fluid and run over the threads again. Blow off the threads and check the fit again. Repeat as needed. If necessary, you can take the die out of the handle, unscrew the preset screw in the die itself, and place back in handle, tightening the 2 screws for an even smaller thread.
Hopefully this information will help you successfully complete your barrel threading project. Make sure to wear protective glasses throughout the process and Take Your Time!. This type of work can be very rewarding when all goes smooth, or a disastrous, aggravating, mess if you try to rush.

Customer Ratings & Reviews
SKS Bulpup modification adding a threaded muzzle brake
I bought the DELTAC "Slingshot" muzzle brake for Chinese SKS - Complete threading kit after watching several videos and looking at other products that were much cheaper. Once I started to use the kit and thread the barrel, I knew I had made the right decision. A cheaper Die would not have worked as well or maybe not at all. The die thread alignment tool is a must. This a heavy-duty kit and the muzzle brake is great looking I have not had a chance to get to the range yet I am still working on the rest of the rifle. Service and shipping were excellent; It took me about an hour to complete cutting about 1-3/16 " of thread. I will add some pictures ASAP. You only get one chance to thread your rifle barrel so get this kit you won't be sorry. With my bullpup stock, I did not want to take the barrel assembly out of the stock so I locked it in a vise if I had to do another one I would defiantly remove the barrel from the stock threading from top to bottom would have been nicer the set up I used. Hope some of this info helps other people are planning to buy this kit. Use plenty of tap oil and take your time.
