Canted muzzlebrake

Hi

I just got my rifle back from the smith, busy at work so havent been in the field with it yet.
I got a muzzlebrake installed on it, but as far as I can see its slightly canted, maybe 0.010 - 0.020"

What effekts will that have?

Will it jerk shots?

It won't have any effect, other than looks.

Is it past straight? Or, can you just tighten it a bit more?

Heat will get it to loosen if you really need to get it off. If you're not worried about it other than looks leave it alone.

Re: Canted muzzlebrake

As already stated it doesnt effect anything. Mine is slightly off too. It goes just past "center" . Besides being irritating to look at it works great. From what I understand it is very difficult to get a threaded muzzle break perfectly centered.

Re: Canted muzzlebrake

If you need to correct rotation, you could use some dental floss between the brake and the barrel. Also aluminum foil carefully trimmed could be made into a shim.
