Does anyone know where to find decent priced 4+ inch muzzle brakes for an RFB?

Thank you for the generous gift, but alas I don't need a muzzle break currently on any of my rifles, you go ahead and use it for now.

Sorry OP I couldn't resist. :43::D;):o:p

The surefire one will not work, it's designed to slip OVER the barrel at the rear a couple inches.

There are a couple ebay sellers selling extended brakes and "brakes" (i.e. a sleeve with holes in it) in 5/8-24 thread.
It's pretty hard to find something nice and commercially made with enough length to it.

I used a SJC Titan with butt stock spacers to get the OAL needed. The brake works great. Feels like shooting an AR15.

I use a PWS FSC and OEM stock spacers to get the OAL requirement.
RFB is a great little 308.

Yea, I did a quick eBay search and I found plenty of brakes. A slip on threaded muzzle break should work to pass inspection, right?

JamesY- how many butt spacers did it take to make length with the Titan?

I have a spare 5/8-24 Titan in the toolbox :D I bet the thing is loud so close to the shooter though :O

James- the 30" extension doesn't need to be permanent :)

Dave,

I think I used 2. The spacers plus the brake made it about 30.5" OAL. I can't tell if it's loud but those around me complain :D

Brake isn't permanently on there.

Sorry to be the negative guy, but why use a surefire? It's expensive and does not work well. If your using a suppressor maybe, but otherwise it's low performance at maximum cost. A pain to install too, there are plenty of better options that don't need to be indexed.

This PRS roundup confirmed what I have been saying for years:

I used to have the Titan on my 18" AR10. It would clear the firing line :D
