    Muzzle Breaks

    Have recently purchase a gun that's been fitted with a Dean Maisey varimax muzzle break and just wondering with out damage how hard are they to remove.
    Cant unwind it by hand and unsure if its been lock tight on. I have read on his site about no having to lock tight on. Never used a muzzle break before but the varimax seems quite a clever idea and still would like to put it to one side for future use.
    More then likely take it to True Flite @Antwalsh when are you guys back on board?

    Should undo? I had one and was easy to swap on and off. It is a good brake. Have tried a dowel or even a screwdriver (wrapped in insulation tape) through the ports for leverage?

    I would have thought it would be a standard thread so you can put a suppressor on it, one would have thought

    @Tikka7mm08 all sorted now it was on there very firm. Had a got layer of lube under it which is good and no damage done by me.
    I will still go see true flite once they open and work out what thread pitch is on the end and suppressor options.
