Fantastic muzzle break/flash suppressor for the price!
on March 23, 2012
This is a tough steel muzzle break and flash suppressor for the Ruger 10/22, and looks REALLY great and cool when attached on the end of that little .22LR carbine. And the price is beyond low, which doesn't hurt either.
The flash suppressor section probably works, since it's very much like the M-16 suppressor, but it's highly unlikely that the muzzle break works at all, as there is far too much gas blowbuy before it even reaches this section (but who cares -- it's only a .22LR cartridge, for heaven's sake!).
The only thing I would caution people about, since this item does not come with any instructions, is to NOT just place this unit on the barrel and then simply tighten the brake's set screw (even with Locktite) and then start blasting away, 'cause the set screw loosens very VERY fast, and the brake/suppressor can then become a dangerous missile if/when a bullet exiting the barrel strikes it.
All I can say is what I did, and YMMV: I placed a deep dimple on the Ruger's barrel band for the set crew to tightly fit into, and then used JB Weld between the barrel and suppressor and also around, in, and on the set screw itself, then tightened everything down hard (making sure the JB Weld does not drip into or over the barrel's muzzle!!). I then waited for the JB Weld to dry (a day or two).
I am now confident that the brake/suppressor will never loosen under normal use. (Again, YMMV, and if you are unsure of your skills, take the unit to a gunsmith for installation).
