muzzlebrake installation

Just got the mason brake from midway and realized that the front sight is required to make it fit. Is there any way to shim it out so that I do not need to buy a front sight as mine was removed before I purchased the rifle?

Also, I would like to install a pistol grip without losing the wood stock. Has anyone seen this done or atempted it?

Cajungeo, Thanks for responding.

I used a piece of nylon webbing as a shim to see if it would work. I think that it will do just fine. I am also hoping that the nylon will dampen the harmonics.

I will post a pic later...I ,m on the way out of the door to see how it shoots.
it worked!

I am finally shooting 1" groups at 50 yds. It feels good to put five bullets into a hole the size of a quarter. I dont know if it is all the muzzlebrake or if the nylon web helped that much but I was using the cheapest ammo I could find and shot 160 rds just to make sure that I wasn't dreaming...even after the barrel was hot I was still putting groups of 2"-21/2" at 100 yds.

The front sight was removed when I bought the mini 30 so I took a piece of the same nylon web that I maede the sling out of and wraped the end of the barrel, then I placed the muzzlebrake over and pushed it on tight. Only one time did it come loose but this was fixed with a dot of jb weld and 100 rds later it was doning just fine.

seems kind of wierd but it is proving to be an extremly inexpensive way to accurize a mini.

have a great memorial day

here are some pics:
