Default what silver solder do you buy for muzzle break?

I want to attach a muzzle break with silver solder....I do not want to do the blind pin because I dont have the tools at home to do it.. I know I have to buy silver solder and flux and I know the way to go is have the silver solder and flux combo and put that on the barrel threads. The one that brownells sells is very expensive and I was told to go to jewlery supplies stores and thoes products are just as good.

this is one item I came across and was wondering if it would work alright.. Thanks for reading hope you guys can help me out a bit

I would recommend bringing it to a gunsmith. It may be cheaper than the cost of a new barrel if you screw it up.

I agree with Mountain Man, barrel plus hi temps can be an issue if not done correctly. Firing an incorrectly attached muzzle break down range...priceless!

Mountain ma'am is right-take it to a gunsmith.....like me me or any GOOD smith will TIG it on. Silver solder will just break or melt off. It DOES NOT have a high melting point.

So why do home gunsmiths always turn the gun cherry red when using it?

To melt the sh!t onto the gun because they are to lazy and stupid to use a solder gun. They are stupid because doing that destroys the barrels temper-badly. It also throughs accuracy out the window. Your a smith-youve seen it happen I bet Bear.

Brownells should do a Kinks book for the home Smith with a list of Don't even Think about it jobs!

Unless you know exactly what you are doing when heating and tempering steel the job should be left to a professional. Marlin would probably give you a good price.
