    Hello,

    I have a Weatherby Vanguard 7mm Rem mag that id like to do some work to. I would like to get a muzzle brake installed and possibly get it fluted. The contour is light but Weatherby flutes some light barrels. I have access to a lathe and could get a brake cheap but I'm not experienced enough to to thread it myself not to mention re-blue or finish the area. Any suggestions on a simple brake install or anyone in Northern California Willing to thread and blue the end of my barrel fast and cheap or trade Let me Know.

    Thanks,
    Vic

    I think you'll find that most don't recommend fluting unless it came from the factory/MFG. that way.
