Re: Muzzle brakes that don't blow off

Here's the installed and blended brake. At this point, the brake looks like part of the barrel. The crown is within .020 of the first baffle to enable cleaning. There are two more steps for this install. I will relieve the sharp edges of the brakes baffles and finish with a satin bead blast.
