Default Muzzle break on single shot pistol

I have a single shot break action pistol that I want to put a muzzle break on. Do I have to pin and weld it? Thanks for the help

Find a gunsmith that doesn't spread FUD. Wouldn't this only be a problem on a semiauto handgun?

A break top by definition is not a semi-auto. If you mean fixed mag (cannot remove magazine without disassembling the action) then no, a threaded barrel is not an issue.

Sorry, yes what I meant was an AR pistol with a fixed magazine.

So to clarify it is NOT required to pin and weld a muzzle device on an AR pistol with a mag lock device?

Why???

It serves no useful purpose. It is a .223. There is no significant recoil. It does increase the blast to a nasty and obnoxious level.


BTW, It is a MUZZLE BRAKE....A BRAKE not a break.

Why? Because some people like freedom. Because some people like things you don't. Maybe just because you can.

I've got one on mine, completely eliminates muzzle rise.

Who cares? It is a single shot.

It will however shoot fire and a fierce concussive blast to the side. It is inconsiderate to the other shooters.
