I've got a Browning 30-06 that I purchased, used. It came with a muzzle brake, that I believe was installed by WWG. It appears to be integral to the barrel, or at least installed with very tight tolerances. The problem is that this sucker is LOUD! I do not make any friends when I bring this to the range to sight in, nor with my hunting partners. The recoil from a 30-06 isn't enough to warrant a muzzle brake, I think. My question is, can I remove the muzzle brake easily, or is a WWG muzzle brake enough of a hassle to remove that it's better to leave it on?
