Muzzle break to USA?

I'm looking to take my rifle to the states to hunt.  My rile has a suppressor but reading the temp importation rules looks like suppressors aren't allowed  Sad  So looking to buy a muzzle break and take that instead as I think they are allowed.  Has anyone taken a muzzle break to hunt in the states recently?

Your're allowed any gun you like in the USA as long as it not a noisey one.  Grin ..

Im guessing you'll buy one there for less?

Its the kick of the 7mm Rem Mag that I'm worried about  Sad

Don't know if its possible to buy a break over there, I'm sure it would be cheaper but ideally I want to get it all set up and ready to go before I arrive in the states.

The term is "brake", not break.

Best mnemonic is stopping recoil.

Muzzle brakes are fine anywhere in the US, but licences are needed for moderators where they are allowed. I had a muzzle brake on one of my rifles when I lived in the US. You will have no dramas taking a braked rifle there. There are a huge range of brakes there of varying quality. Personally I would get a Terminator T3 or T3 here and take that to the US as I think they're better than anything else I saw.

Breaks are fine. Won't get a second glance at airport. But supressors are very highly regulated and you can't just bring them in. We have some good gun rules overall. Still silly what an American had to do to get a supressor. Just bought one, sent  $200 tax, forms, legal trust I started so my wife could "possess it", pics of me and my wife, and two fingerprint cards each. If I am lucky I will be able to pick it up from the store 20 minutes from my house it is sitting in in a years time.
