    I'm getting a muzzle brake put on my rifle, but I wanted to have a thread saver around if I ever decide to take it off. I've been googleing for a while now and no results. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    I think i've heard of russian training before. You get a gun, and some beer. Preferably strong beer. You drink one, then when you finish it, you put the bottle on something about 20 feet away and shoot it. You just continue doing this until you or your opponent miss a target, or cant stand anymore, whichever comes first.

    know anybody with access to a machine shop? have a blank milled down to the same outer diameter and length, drill out the inner diameter to like 1/10th tighter than the outer diameter of the threads. tap, coating of choice, screw on.
