I was wondering if I could thread the barrel on my m44 mosin to 14x1 lh threads, to use kalash style muzzle brakes, has anyone done this? I realize that the mosin does not have the spring loaded pin that the Ak rifles do, so I would have to index the brake with a crush washer, but other than that, are there any particular obstacles to doing this?

We are not aware of anyone doing that yet. Sounds like an interesting project though.

If anyone is interested in doing this, I just completed the project, it is not only possible, but also easy. The 14x1 lh threads are almost a perfect fit for the m44 carbine. I had to sand the barrel maybe .0005", but it barely took 10 minutes. I used the front sight base assembly for the shoulder.
I did not bottom the threads, as I plan to use a crush washer.
I test fitted a slant brake from an akm, and it worked. Ordered the three prong brake and a crush washer from you guys on friday, cant wait to try it!

I have attached pictures from the project, one during threading, one of the finished threads, and one with the slant brake.
