has anyone used this type of muzzle break? Or heard bad/good things about it?

-here's a link:

I know everyone swears by the black warrior and john Masen muzzle breaks, but i know the black warrior is only offered for the mini-14.

here's an interesting side note- I'm from NJ and in my 9th week
of waiting on my Firearms purchaser ID card. Just for a measly address change! My mini-30 is patiently waiting for me behind the gun store counter. Hopefully it won't take 6months.

I have one of the john Masen tye muzzle brakes on my mini-30. You can check out a pic of my rifle in the gallery. Works great and it is inexpensive. It is also held on by the sight pin. I am not crazy about brakes held on by set screws. Had one on a 10/22 I used to own. It kept coming off. You would shoot a few hundred rounds then, poof. It would end up about 5 yds down range. I would stick with the pin on type. You won't be disappointed.

The proper way to attach a set screw type muzzle brake is to "Dimple" the barrel with a drill bit the same diameter as the set screw. Drill only as deep as the bevel on the end of the set screw & torque the screws evenly using Loctite. If the brake is the corret fit for the barrel using this method to mount it you'll never shoot it loose. You don't have to get "Georilla Ugly" with the set screws either.

Just my 2¢

bushwack, that's definitely the right way to mount a set screw type brake however I have a hard time bringing myself to use a drill on my barrel. :)

Ed---I understand your reluctance in dimpling your barrel but the set screw is going to dig into it also, so as long as we are putting marks on the barrel they may as well be marks that do us some good.

Has anyone had a muzzle brake threaded on? Sounds like about a 150.00 dollar bill to me though. 60.00 for the threaded brake and the rest for a smith to install. Probably a little expensive for the average mini tune up, and permanent. First class though.

It is unfortunate that Choate does not make its mini 14 break for the mini 30. I think it is the best of the lot.
