In my first post I showed a picture of the Sako TRG type brake on my .338 Edge. It has a screw that locks the brake to the thread and there is an index mark on the underside of the barrel. So I could if I wish, take the brake off for cleaning or shooting without the brake (not that I would shoot without it) and then replace it back into its original position.
