Savage model 111 adjustable muzzle device
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hey guys so I picked up a Savage model 111 chambered in .300 Win Mag, and it has an adjustable muzzle brake on it. I was wondering if it is possible to remove that adjustable brake, and replace it with a threaded brake? Here is a pic of the adjustable one that's currently on it.

what goal are you trying to achieve in replacing the factory one for another one?

Great question axxe!! The idea behind the adjustable brake is you can, well adjust it and increase accuracy. Not sure replacing it would yield better results down range. The people that design the brake/rifle know more then 99% of us about it.

that was my understanding. i mean there had to be a reason it was installed in the first place.

This is not just a muzzle break. I think it appeared on Browning rifles back in 80's. It is adjustable for barrel harmonics by bullet weight . If you take it completely off, I believe there will be a slot machined along the bore axis with a delrin insert. A noble gimmicky concept that never caught on.

Probably need some gunsmithing to convert

Yes, I wanted to replace it with a surefire suppressor adapter, to mound a suppressor, and also to eliminate the barrel signature created by the holes on the bottom of the break.

i think you are going to find that putting a suppressor on a 300 W.M. a losing proposition. you might seriously do some reserach into the balistics of the 300 W.M. and do some research into suppressors in general before going any further.

Axxe,There are a lot of people that shoot 300 WM's with suppressors. They work the same as any other caliber that you suppress. There are several suppressors made for 338 Lapua Magnum's as well as 50 BMG's.
Even when fired with supersonic ammo,the suppressor will really quiet the blast signature down,and with subsonic ammo,they are whisper quiet.

OP, Do you have any idea what a suppressor may cost? Don't forget the tax stamp. That is only $200.00 from the ATF.
The Quick Silver .300WM is only $2100.00.

You started w/ a new Muzzle devise/brake and now have moved up to a suppressor. The surefire are generic, not cartridge specific.
