    SSG 08 muzzle break

    If anyone here has managed to unscrew the muzzle break from a Steyr Mannlicher SSG 08 rifle I'd appreciate any tips. This one seems immovable.

    I have never seen another one apart from mine. The break has a back nut on it, use two spaners. First one near the front of break then second on the very back nut. Once separated they come off.

    Thanks - much appreciated.
    I have been trying something similar after taking out the one Allen type screw and resorting to putting penetrating oil in the screw hole and even heating it up.
    I'll try again - perhaps take a run up.

    Hope you don't break your brake.

    It's off thanks to Clive and his buddy.
    Three man job in the end. Double delighted and bonus, the moderator and the muzzle thread cover fit perfectly.
