Re: Savage Factory Muzzle Break?

Factory brake is good for what it is. Very good closure concept for hunting.
Back blast in handgun length barrels isn't something I enjoy with the factory brake.

Ultimately it really depends on what or how much you want to reduce recoil. Do you want to see the bullet print on a target or just make a gun more comfortable to shoot?

basically just reduce the recoil, in order to get more comfortable trigger time.

Re: Savage Factory Muzzle Break?

New member.
Just got home with new 116fhsak, mounted scope and bipod. Obviously not yet fired it. Chambered in .308. Got it at local sporting goods store for $649.00. Great looking weapon, imagine it will perform well as well. Can't wait to get to the range,however it's pretty miserable here in Pittsburgh, weatherwise.
I was wondering if the muzzle break is threaded on barrel, and ifso would it be beneficial or possible to replace with a suppressor? Any ideas would be appreciated.

Re: Savage Factory Muzzle Break?

It is removable, but it is a very odd thread size and pitch. Not likely that you would find a suppressor with the correct threads.

You could cut the tennon off your barrel and have it re-threaded for a more standard size.
