    Slip on muzzle breaks?

    Has anyone made these before. I was thinking for the .22lr (just for looks) but sadly I dont have access to a lathe anymore. would it blow off do you think? Or if it was made to a tight fit would it be ok.

    You'd want at least a tap-on fit. I guess it depends if you ever want to take it off again?

    Yeah I would probably want to take it off one day and get a suppressor on it but for now I was thinking a slip on muzzle break just to look cool.

    Why oh why would you want a loudener on a 22lr, they are designed to reduce recoil, of which a 22lr has none.

    Is this along the lines of putting a bloody great wing on the boot of your mums corolla even tho it drops 30kmh off the top speed, makes it understeer,and increases fuel consumption buy a third cool or what?

    They just look cool and its only a .22lr so I want to see if I can use it, if it makes it too shitty I will just take it off, at least it gives me something to make.

    I was thinking of it, But I would need my barrel threaded. I wouldn't trust it if it was only slipped on over the end of the barrel. But muzzle breaks still look cool and I want to make one. Maybe for a slug gun then.

    Personally I wouldn't put anything on the end of a barrel that hadn't been turned up on a lathe. If your shit isn't concentric, and the projectile strikes your brake you are in for a hell of a fright.
