Default Muzzle Break for a 10/22

I am looking at these strictly for cosmetics. I realize a 10/22 does not really need a muzzle break or flash suppressor. I have seen some from NStar that look like they just go on the end and then others that look like they need to be gun smithed on.

Anyone here have any experience with muzzle breaks or any recommendations.

Thanks

Threaded barrel? Slip on?

Might want to get a nice "Recoil Pad" to go with the muzzle break to complete the look

What is your barrel diameter? Volquartsen sells a clamp on type for the .920 bull barrrel, it looks much better than the average slip on type.

It is just a standard 10/22 I picked up the tapco stock, a bushnell scope, the recoil pad, a bipod and a forward grip for it. Not only is it really fun to shoot but it is pretty cheap to operate as well.

I thought a muzzle break would complete the look and I was thinking about getting a bigger charging handle and mag release as well.

That one from Brownells is also sold by Tactical Innovations. Made by John Masen. They work great. But I had to use a board and a hammer to get mine on. Plus Locktite on the set screw. That baby is never coming off. It also adds like 2" inches to overall length but I like it. Does the job.

I bought one of those when i first bought my 10/22. Fit kinda loose and i noticed my groupings were tighter without it so i keep it off. Has anyone else noticed decreased accuracy with these slip on muzzle tips?

This is the one I have, http://www.tacticalinc.com/10220174-...eel-p-513.html

As mentioned, I had to use a piece of wood and a hammer to install it. I checked with Tactical Innovations before doing so, and they advised me it should fit tight. I don't think a muzzle device should be loose at all, nor should it impact performance/accuracy as that's contrary to its primary purpose.

I went with the .50 cal one along with some other things like the larger charging handle and an extra power spring upgrade from Wolf's.

Is there a link to the .50 cal brake for the 10/22? I assume .50 cal is a brand name in this case ....

I think he meant this, unless I'm mistaken (in which case, feel free to correct me)...

Usually a similar style brake is featured on .50 cal sniper rifles.

I'd assume so too. Dunno why people can't read all the posts and click links for themselves.. If they had looked at my post they would have found them

Ps Phanes, let us know how you like it! Looking forward to photos!

OK .. I think that's it ...thanks. Now I just have to decide if it's really appropriate on a 22 ...

Tactical that is the one I bought. It looks like the brake on the .50 Big Boys I shot in another lifetime. When I saw it I tagged it in my head as a .50 cal brake for a 10/22.

What I picked up for my 10/22 is

Tapco OD furniture
Simmons .22 mag Scope
Butler Creek Scope Covers
4 x 25 round BX-25s
Paddle Release (I Have an old gen 10/22)
Skeleton Charging Handle
10/22 Muzzle Brake
The Wolf Spring Extra Power spring kit
New Springs from Ruger that the wolf pack does not cover
The auto bolt release

Once it comes in I will take the 10/22 apart clean it and grease it then put it back together with the new parts.

My only concern is I shoot CCI Standard velocity and with the heavier springs the CCI SV may no longer cycle properly. If it does not I will have to find some new ammo.

I'm new to ruger 10/22 so the more you change on these rifles the the less type of ammo you can shoot, is this true?

No. Not really. Only item I can think of is some barrels will not work properly with CCI Stingers and other with 60 grain match ammo. But otherwise nothing should effect what ammo you can use. Also keep in mind every gun and every form of ammo is different. Something will work for you and not work for your buddy next to you, or visa versa. Things like that.
