I dropped off my wifes hunting rifle off at a local gunsmith to get the 26 barrel shortened and the stock adjusted, and after seeing one of the blued rifles he had a stainelsss brake on, I had him put one of those on.

I forgot to take a picture of the one he had done, but does anyone here have a picture I can show? I thought it looked great with the brake turned down to match the diameter of the barrel, but she is unconvinced.

Thanks.

Other than Google is your friend, I don't have any pictures of any stainless brakes on a blued gun.

All I have are black on black and black brake on a stainless barrel.

Yeah, i googled and all I found were what you have for the most part. I should have taken a pic of the ruger m77 that had his stainless brake mounted, and it looked great to me anyway. It will be threaded in So she can always remove it and pay for a blued thread protector if she really wants one I suppose.

Some brakes only come in ss, so if it a specific brake you want like the apa fat baster or micro bastiage your only option is cerakote or dlc coating.

My M1A has the stainless barrel with a blued (parkerized ?) flash hider, which a, relatively

long as flash hiders usually go. I think it looks just fine. 

 

The reverse ?  I honestly don't know. I'd have to see it. 

One thing I most surely don't need to tell you is that if it is not floating your wife's boat,

it is her rifle, after all. If sadly she does not like the look, or you can determine she is just telling you she likes it as to not

hurt your feelings, I have no doubt you will be sending out a muzzle brake to be. It was the thiu

Marines always do the right thing. /Correct ?

Gen 2 brakes come in a stainless or nitrided finish. I have a Little bastiage Gen 2.

Here's a carbon fiber barrel with a SS brake, if that helps.

Well I picked up the rifle from the local smith today and I think he did a great job. He cut 6 off of the barrel, about an inch or so off the stock, put a stainless brake on and made it match the contour of the barrel. He also worked on the trigger and did not charge me for it, and it breaks clean at just under 3lbs now. Should be ready for my wife to shoot both mule deer and elk this year.

She does, we need to get it out and sighted in before mule deer season starts at the end of the month. She is happy with how it turned out though, and I am looking forward to seeing how it shoots.

That is a browning A-Bolt medallion in .308. Originally had a 26 barrel, but now its around 21 with the brake.
