    Default Browning Barrel BOSS or Muzzle Break

    I picked up a 1993 Browning A-Bolt .338 for a good price. I am told it has the BOSS system but doesn't look like it. Looks to me like a regular muzzle break. I have never owned a muzzle breaked gun, so not sure if the break was added on or from Browning. Some help

    Looks like one of Stan Jacksons breaks to me. Definitely not a BOSS system

    I was 95 percent sure it wasn't a BOSS. Since the BOSS system is tunable. I will try to contact Stan and see if I can get a cap to go over the threads. From what I hear, muzzle breaks are extremely loud.

    I have shot a 338 with one of Stan's breaks on it and it is louder than a standard barrel but it was a joy to shoot. I would not be a fan of them at the range as a bystander but have no problem w/ them in the field or anytime as long as I am the one with the stock in my shoulder.

    Definitely not a BOSS. Any competent gunsmith should be able to locate a thread protector if you need one.
    Foolishness is a moral category, not an intellectual one.
