I bought a muzzle break for my mosin at a gunshow for $15. Got home and it doesn't fit, one sized doesnt fit all. I'm not to worried about it, as it was only $15. I want to improve on the design and make my own at work. My question is, How long do you think a 7075 aircraft aluminum muzzle brake will hold its own for prototype testing? I will make a steel one eventually, but for testing purposes, would aluminum hold up long enough to test with, or will it pretty much be destroy after the first couple rounds?
