    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.

    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.

    How would you go about trying to thread a bull barrel?

    Take it to a machine or tool and die shop. I wouldn't attempt it yourself unless u have a good metal lathe.

    Ok thanks! Is there a break around that would match the diameter of my barrel so it would look factory?

    The best way is to turn it is on two live centers with a dog leg 1/2*28 take it to someone that knows what they are doing.
