I have a Swedish Mauser M96 with a threaded barrel. I would like to find a muzzle break that screws on. My friend has one (4 -port) that he bought in 1999 at a gun show. I have only been able to locate one on line but the place is closed for a while. Does anyone know where I might be able to find one? Thanks!

I had one of the 4 slotted affairs on a swede I used to own, it didn't do anything as they are actually flash hiders not brakes

It's "brake" not "break". Why would you want to "break" your muzzle? Then you'd just have to fix it! :neener:

In any case, the threads on the M96 Swede aren't for muzzle brakes, or even flash hiders. They are for blank firing adapters. The Swedish Army trained with wooden bullet practice ammo. The adapter threaded onto the muzzle destroyed the bullet and kept it from being lethal at too great a distance.

You can get flash hiders that fit, however. Better yet, just get a threaded muzzle protector. Both are available from Samco Global Arms, at this link: http://www.samcoglobal.com/access.html

Thanks, I'll check Samco's site. Interesting information about the threads! You certainly live up to your handle! :D

WARNING! BEFORE reading farther, please read the disclaimer at the end of the post.

You can buy small blued metal caps that thread onto the barrel and improve the appearance compared to the bare threads. There are also flash-hiders available.

In case it's not obvious, the blank-shredders are absolutely NOT to be used with live ammunition. ;)

They don't recoil anyways and flash hiders look stupid on them. JMHO!
Get a thread guard and be done with it.

Thanks, all! I appreciate the advice. I have ordered both the brake and the thread cover from Samco. I'll try them both out and see which I like best.
