Homemade muzzle brake
 
2 Attachment(s)
I recently bought a new Savage MKII FV-SR. Since I don't have my stamp yet, I needed something to screw on the threads. I mean, if you have a threaded barrel, the threads have to be holding something on besides the barrel nut right? :)

Here's one of the muzzle brake right after I finished turning it out.
The other one is after I finished matching the finish on the barrel.

Thank You. I like the way it turned out.

Looks good but dont put holes on the bottom if you are going prone. Kicks up dirt.

Yeah, I'm mainly going to be shooting this from the bench. I plan on making another muzzle break with a compensator just because I have the tap now. Even though it's only a .22 and doesn't need it, it'll change the looks up. Plus it's fun. :)

Looks good! Now that nasty recoil won't dislodge your retinas. :) It would be neat to watch that during a low light shot.

Ok, now I want one on my .22.
