    The wait might have been long but I think this will be worth it. It was either back-ordered or the person who was SUPPOSED to pick up my mail, missed it.

    I had a bad experience with a bayonet type SKS muzzle brake once (AK-74 style). So far, I'm impressed with the build quality for the price and the brass set screws are nice so their is no permanent alteration to your 91/30.

    Just a quick test fit for now. Hoping to get it on the bench at the end of the month and answer the question, "Does it work as well as they claim?"

    Ask and ye shall receive.

    I was afraid it would ruin the overall aesthetic of the rifle but it suits it well IMO.

    1944 rearsenaled Izhevsk with matching numbers and full kit. A really common rifle so I don't feel bad getting the bolt turned down and putting on an unauthentic, functional, but good looking scope from Kalinka. I'd not modify my collector rifles at all.

    A Quick and Dirty Review of the Howling Raven Muzzle Brake:

    It does work as they claim. I'd estimate it knocks down 25% of the recoil but it does vent a lot of the muzzle gas down so it's best for shooting prone or off the bench. I added the AIM Sports rubber butt pad to tame it down even more.

    Better living through modern technology. ;)

    I just love them. A real piece of history in your hand and nothing is more fun to use for shooting steel plates. As I've said before, I just wish they could talk and tell me their stories. Deciphering the arsenal markings is fascinating too.

    The stories we could get from in-animate objects if they could talk would probably rewrite world history...
