Re: Barrel fluted to the muzzle???

Found these two pictures on a Swedish forum:

Rifle
Muzzle

Looks a bit strange to me, but not that bad.

Did a search on the swedish forum, and it seems that there is no difference in accuracy after the barrel was cut.

Would it be difficult to thread a brake on it?

Not only would it be difficult but it may be impossible. If possible it would probably be extremely dangerous.

As long as the thread diameter would allow the fluted to be totally cleaned up it would work, look strange but work. If the flutes were not cleaned up, you would have alot of hot gas directed right back in your face as it followed up the flutes of the barrel.
