For mounting and securing a muzzle device like a compensator, flash suppressor or muzzle brake, the barrel of a shotgun needs to be threaded using a specially made tool – the shotgun barrel threading tool. This specialized tool is used to cut threads into the barrel, thus allowing for the attachment of components like muzzle brakes and other muzzle devices.
When it comes to acquiring a shotgun barrel threading tool, you’re presented with several options from several different manufacturers. While these tools may have slight differences in design and functionality, the most critical aspect to consider is that the tool is created with accuracy and sized to suit your shotgun barrel threads exactly.
No matter how low the cost, precision crafting is essential for any tool intended to be applied to a shotgun barrel. If it is not utilised in accordance with the tool’s instructions and not aided by high-grade cutting oil when threading, there is a risk of causing harm.
After severing the threads, it’s time to equip your gun with the muzzle device of your selection. This can be achieved by simply screwing it onto the cut threads. Make sure you align the device properly before securely fastening it.
To perfect your shotgun’s shooting performance, the installation of a muzzle device can make a perceivable difference – improving accuracy and cutting back on recoil.
