    Default Muzzle Brake

    When making a custom muzzle brake should it be according to certain specifications.

    Thanks for the input!

    A springer can be silenced, but the noise is mostly from the piston slamming and other mechanical noises.... Do not be disheartened if it is not as quiet as a PCP, or as quiet as you wanted it to be.....
    It will be more quiet, though, because the muzzle-break on the CFX only acts as a glorified "flip-compensator" IMHO...

    the idea is not realy to silence it but now what would be better, fit the custom brake that works or thread the barrel and fit a silencer?

    The trick about a muzzle brake is the distance from the crowning to the inlet of the cone. Also the diameter of the hole through the cone.

    It will be possible to make one for the Walther, although I normally would like to have the rifle with me when I do this.

    A muzzle brake on a springer is more often only cosmetic. I did modify a CFX to get the kick out, but hat was more modifying the spring and piston also the trigger.

    So it serves no purpose at all or does it well serve a purpose if it is made well?

    Falco, made well or not you are not going to achieve truly worthwhile gains. As Malan said, the noise from a springer comes primarily from the spring and moving parts.

    The difference will be so slight that in the end it will be cosmetic rather than functional.

    I've fitted a Webley Longbow Muzzle break to my s400 hw .20 barrel. More to protect the thread, and the cosmetics maybe. With the mbrake fitted shots have a pithed crack sound but the noise goes to the sides and not so much "forward", which I can almost swear gave me second shots/chances on hunting trips. From a shooter point of view muzzle brakes are louder, but for the prey not so threartning. But this is sound deflection. In my instance no influence on accuracy.
