Re: NZ Wapiti Hunting


Looking at the pictures I notice that you may have a brake on the end of the barrel. Is that the case? If so how do you find the noise level and what type of brake is it (thats if you have one fitted of course).

Its a 26" number 4 contour fluted Lilja.
Jon 2,
Yes, its a copy of a Vais brake I made. We carry the gun with no brake and the thread protector fitted for "spook and shoot" shots, but if there's time as with most long shots, we fit the brake and use ear plugs, brakes are loud!
