I have been wondering about porting my M-44 with maybe 4 to 6 holes between the front sight and the bayonet mount at the 11 and 1 'Oclock position. Hoping it will help with muzzle flip and recoil. I'm guessing this will make this little barker even louder, but might be a fun cheap mod. Has anyone seen this or had this done to thier rifle? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated! Thank you in advance!

have you used one? did it help?
I have a 91/30 and have been told that the muzzle break won't fit properly, due to the different taper in the outer diameter of the barrel.

I have never used one, but I'd be a lot more receptive to put a $12 part on the front that could be removed if I don't like it than to put holes in the barrel that, if they suck, are permanent unless I get the whole thing reworked for more than a new one would cost.... yano? ;-)

I don't think it's going to help the recoil at all... I think that would have to be perfectly engineered. I mean, it's not like you're doing rapid fire with these or anything. If those brakes are $12, try one. Let us know how it works. If it doesn't, you're out $12, but you don't have holes drilled in your barrel. If it does, you're the man!!

I purchased a spare original military stock for my M-44 ($12) and installed a Morgan Curved Adjustable Recoil Pad on it. It feels like shooting a .243 Win with 100gr bullets, and I can migrate the barrelled action back so I can have it in original-unmodified condition when I want.
