Thread: Muzzle Brake.

  1. #1

    Muzzle Brake.

    I bought a cheap muzzle brake as I wanted to try to "tame" my .270 rifle a little. I normally use a T8 moderator but they are quite big and bulky and make my rifle quite heavy to carry around when stalking etc. I made this quick video to show how my .270 (Parker Hale Safari) behaves when nothing is screwed on the end of the barrel and then with the T8 and finally with the cheap muzzle brake I bought.
    Ok there is still some felt recoil and a minimum amount of muzzle flip but in my opinion this muzzle brake does the job quite well and is well worth the 18.50 (Including postage) it cost me!

    I don't mind you asking at all!
    It came from Simon Pinkney who has his web site at: www.pinkneyengineering.co.uk and was at their advertised price of 18.50 including P&P!

    Now I really can't wait to get the Mannlicher to try it on!

    It certainly looks better on the end of a classic sporting weight rifle than a can but will do nothing for noise reduction in the field. Also, if you intend to use it at a range with other folk around you'll not be particularly popular!

    Cheers

    I agree with what you are saying about the looks of a muzzle brake on a sporting rifle rather than having a great big can hanging off the end.
    Fortunately the noise doesn't effect most of my shooting and I don't bother with going to rifle ranges. Having said that though I will be keeping my T8 in case I have to go anywhere that is "noise sensitive".

    Unfortunately Tony I don't know how to tell you what thread your rifle has. I guess the only way to find out is to take it to a gunsmith and ask them, or maybe an engineering workshop.
    These from Simon Pinkney are in 1/2 inch x 20 UNF, but after speaking to Simon from what I can gather he will make one to any individuals specification. You can contact Simon via his web site once you find out what thread you need the muzzle brake to have.
    Sorry I can't be of more help mate!
