    Muzzle Brake Removal

    I just purchased my first Savage 16FHSAK with the built on muzzle brake. How does one remove this? I am not sure if I plan on keeping this on or not. I did not see anything on Savage site or the manual. Any ideas other then cutting?

    According to savage you put two tight fitting pins through the muzzle brake holes (maybe cleaning rods) and use them as a lever to unscrew the muzzle brake.

    I put 3 nails in mine and used loose vice jaws to catch the nails

    Re: Muzzle Brake Removal

    Anybody know what the thread pattern is on these savage mounted muzzle brakes?

    My reason for asking is because, -if I finally decided on one of these models- I'm wondering if I couldn't just screw on another style of muzzle brake.

    The existing Savage muzzle brakes don't seem to be very conducive to prone-shooting; at least not without kicking up a ton of dust.

    I realize that a muzzle brake of a different design may require a certain amount of "timing/alignment" but, if you're able to swap your own barrels, you should be able to align a new-style muzzle brake onto your barrel; assuming the threads are compatible.
