Re: Does savage muzzle break count in length of barrel?
The way the ATF measures barrel length is to close the bolt (With no round in the chamber)
Insert a cleaning rod (Very Carefully) in the muzzle and mark the rod at the muzzle end.
Then subtract the length of the break to the holes or ports closest to the barrel (Normally there is about 1/2 to 3/4'' of barrel in the break.
Example : If The break is 2'' long and the overall length at the end of the muzzle break to
the bolt face is 28" the barrel will be around 26.5'' long.
On some breaks you can see the end of the barrel through the ports or just un-screw the break
and measure to the crown for actual barrel length.
