Help with gunsmithing

I dunno why you want or need muzle brakes on either of those rifles. Neither one is much of a kicker in those calibers.

Adding a muzzle brake or Magna-Porting will greatly increase sideblast and noise.

As for removing the front and rear sights and installing plug screws, you can do that without a gunsmith. It's easy. The screws are readily available at gunsmithing supply stores or by mail order. :shock:

Help with gunsmithing

I have to agree.. On mild kickers such as these if you are still having a problem, I would suggest a decelerator type recoil pad or perhaps a recoil tamer.. I almost never recommend a brake of any type. The damage to your ears is just not worth it.. Good luck from the gunnut69

Re: Magna port

Thanks for the replies...The reason for me wanting to reduce the recoil on these rifles is that I enjoy going to the range often and like staying half the day. I like shooting my hunting rifles, but not for that long. I do have a .243 and .22 but figured I would get more practice in with the rifles I hunt with. Thanks again.
Hey BRL,
Take it from a softy....I don't like bruised shoulders either, but I have a muzzle loader in 50cal. and w/too much triple 7 powder, it's a bear. I have a slip-on Pachmeyer DeCelerator I use and now I've picked up a PAST shoulder pad from Cabela's. Check it out on line and buy one. FORGET THE DAMN Muzzle Break, please! Your fellow range members wll thank you.
