    Has anyone used a muzzle break on a 10/22 that mounts with a set screw. The muzzle brakes are made of stainless steel. Available on ebay for $15 and free shipping. Muzzle Brake

    I am looking for people that have used a similar muzzle brake. If you have actually used the same or a similar muzzle brake that mounts with a set screw, please share your experience.

    I don't care about what you think I need.

    Not trying to be snarky, but what exactly will a muzzle break do on a .22?

    I have two set-screw muzzle devices for my 10/22. One is the old Ramline model with six round ports on the top/ birdcage in front. The other is a copy of a Smith Vortex I made myself while I was waiting for a CNC part to run.

    They both use a 8-32 dog point screw with a dab of Loctite 242. Rock solid after thousands of rounds.

    Do 22 rifles even produce enough gas expansion at the muzzle for a brake to actually do anything?

    I would assume that it is a case of form over function for a muzzle BRAKE on any .22 caliber rifle.

    I had a flash hider on mine at one time. It was during the Clinton/Janet Reno assault rifle ban. We could only have 2 accessories, IIRC, such as mag release, flash hider, extended mag...... So naturally, being a teen, I HAD to have the max amount. It did Nothing except get dirty. I took it off and I think it looks better without it anyway.

    There is no visible flash, with or without, using my usual Federal bulk.

    I think the only time ive seen flash on a 22 is with stingers in a short barrel pistol

    I have one on a rifle that I'll loan out to students at Project Appleseed shoots. It protects the crown when someone accidentally gets the muzzle into the dirt while getting in/out of prone.

    Other than that, it looks pretty cool. :cool:

    I bought one of these to use as a cover for the barrels thread protector. Had to add a very small shim on the protector to allow the device to tighten to it instead of it and the barrel. Works great. Just grab the big stabilization module and screw it (and the attached thread protector) off so I can put the on the suppressor.

    I had a flash hider similar to the one you linked to many years ago on a .22 Ruger, never had an issue with it getting loose or coming off.

    If you like the look, go for it.

    If NOTHING else, it does protect the crown from damage.

    They serve no function, other than looks. Sometimes that's all someone wants.

    Thanks to everyone that provided useful information. I ordered the stainless steel brake even though the blued brake looked nicer. I have a stainless 10/22. I think the brake looks cool even if it does nothing more than protect the muzzle crown.

    I don't know if my 10/22 just needed 3 oz of weight on the barrel or what. But I don't have any muzzle jump at all. Before I put the brake on the 10/22 it did move off target with each shot. Now the crosshairs do stay on a 3" target at 40 yards. I just have to move the sight to the center of the target.

    I have a aftermarket barrel on my 10/22 that came with muzzle brake and a thread protector. I was disappointed that my old barrel shot better until I took off the brake. The groups with the muzzle brake on are worse than groups without.
