Thumbs up Muzzle Brake on a Charger



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello!
Would a muzzle brake on a Charger be a plus or a minus? I do use muzzle brakes on large case capacity rifles. My main reason for them is crown protection, any recoil benefit would be an extra. My new Charger barrel is threaded and silencers are a no-no where I live. I'm not a flash hider guy. So any thoughts on the subject would be appreciated.
M.M.

As long as you don't mind cleaning them, they don't hurt anything. Muzzle devices and .22lr create work.

i had the same experience.

i can suggest a slightly longer knurled protector if you just want a little more protection

example dip sells a thread protector that sits flush or almost flush at .400

Yankee hill sells one that is .600 so it is just long enough to protect but not be a nuisance

good luck

Hi,
My barrel is what YHM calls a pencil barrel. My thread protector is .400 long. YHM only lists thread size and O.D.
My Charger is a new S.S.T.D.
M.M.
P.S. I am thinking of a crush washer behind it.

It vents the gases better for me

I shoot mostly indoors. I use the Ruger Flash Suppressor which makes the smoke clear a bit faster. Though, it is cool to see the tendrils rising out of the muzzle when the gun is at rest on the bipods (which happens on my 18 1/2 in 10/22 barrel).

I had an A2 birdcage flash hider from an AR in my junk drawer I tried but it was heavy & bulky so I used an AR thread protector which is twice as long as the factory one. That does an excellent job of protecting the crown.

I posted a similar question about muzzle brakes not to long ago. I want one mainly because I like the way they look. But, bottom line is I cannot find one that will fit flush to the diameter of the barrel. If anyone knows of one please let me know.

I used this from Tactical. Although it is designed for the bull barrel, I just radiused the trailing edge a bit and don't mind the looks. Whether it has any advantage or not I don't know...but it does protect and I do like the look!!

I think it looks great, that is the option I will probably go with also. I talked to Jason at MADDMACS and he stated he could do a custom one for me. I will have that done at the same time I have him convert the grips on my Ruger 22/45.

I use a "sound forwarder" and it is so effective I don't need ear protection with subsonic round...worth doing.

Ebay has a muzzle brake blank that is drilled .25" and threaded 1/2x28. 5/8" /.625" diameter and 2" long. $12 shipped. It is meant to make into a custom muzzle brake.

E-bay, eh...
Hmm, now if I can find some info on how to drill or mill that to make a turbulence free zone just off the muzzle.

Definitely.

Yes, put one on it looks cool. Although being a .22 it probably won't do much since there is very little recoil. The cool factor outweighs it.
