Due to the ferocious recoil of the almighty 17HMR, we here at mossberg suggest all 17HMR rifles come with a muzzle break...

Why doesn't everyone have one??? Grin

Good God. Who put a 50cal muzzle brake on a 17hmr? plonkers.

It looks just like my JW15 polytech ... except mine doesn't have the humungous brake on it.
  

It's ok if you disagree with me. I can't force you to be right.

And loud guns are cool guns. All gun owners strive to be as cool as possible, hence the cool muzzle brake. Cool

For an extra $70 they could also put a limb saver on it

I think they could have made that muzzlebreak a bit smaller it looks rediculous but to put one on a .17HMR varmint rifle is stupid anyway

What about some racing stripes and a big aerial? Smiley

I am concerned by the recoil on my .177 air pistol.

Should I consider a muzzle brake on this gun?

I also feel that my air pistol is too heavy and / or light and is also too quiet and / or loud for the conditions under which I use it.

I therefore believe I need to fit a muzzle brake, a silencer, a loudener, telescopic sights, racing stripes, batteries, a stereo, tactical lights, a laser, a fish finder, a GPS and some form of refrigerator.

I am also going to bore it out to .177-08 improved to get an extra 11fps from it and blueprint and smooth the action to... oops.

I broke it.
