Re: muzzle brake
There are many styles of breaks and they all perform differently.
There are large port breaks (Holland, DE,painkiller. ETc)that are the most efective but they
are very loud.
These can be cleaned without taking them off the rifle.
The breaks with small holes like the Vias,Gentry,Klinegunther, ETC. need to be removed
and each hole needs to be brushed using bore solvent to remove carbon and prevent
any build up. (They will become less efficient). This type of brake is less efective in recoil
reduction but are much quieter.
As far as accuracy if installed correctly they should not effect accuracy. And a brake may
help accuracy if the recoil is effecting the shooter.
I personally dont use them where it is not nessary but on some of my rifles I do (The very
worst recoiling ones).
So if you to permanently attach and paint, then I would choose one of the ported brakes.
