Which muzzle brake should I get, a Bolt-on or a Screw-on?

There are actually 3 types of muzzle brakes currently on the market. The screw on, the bolt-on and the Clamp on. The screw on are the one that screw on the barrel muzzle when the muzzle is threaded, the bolt-on and the Clamp on are pretty similar in that they both secure behind or around the front sight. Now, the front sight has never been engineered to hold on to a device that will see up to 160,000 PSI of pressure come through it. You read correctly. On some guns like the Mosin Nagant or some .308 caliber, the barrel of a rifle is designed to handle up to 160,000 PSI of pressure that is released when you fire a round. A muzzle brake is supposed to divert some of this pressure sideways to reduce the recoil. So the muzzle brake better be in place securely or else the brake will become a dangerous projectile.   We believe that threading the barrel of a rifle is the most effective method to install a muzzle break. Look at the rifle of a US Marine sniper and you will see that it is threaded on the barrel for accuracy and safety. There are many brakes on the market that just mount with a bracket secured behind the front sight that end up being shot off with an exiting bullet and are potentially dangerous. Threading your barrel ensure reliability and accuracy. Don't forget to leave a comment or ask a question
