    Muzzle Brake

    I am trying to reduce the recoil on my rifle as much as possible so that other people can shoot my 45-70, does anyone know a brake that would bolt on to the end of the barrel, if so who makes it?

    Instead of a muzzle break why dont you try some trapdoor rounds, much lighter recoil.
    try AMM-906 - .45-70 Government, BVAC, RFP, 405 Grain, 20 Round Box, 1400 fps, Rounded Flat Point Lead Bullet. they are only going 1400fps so should be less recoil
    By the way... What are you shooting in it that is too stout for others to shoot?

    Just buy the cowboy loads or Remington 405gr lead rounds, that will take care of any terrible recoil. If you reload just load em light... there is no brake that can just bolt onto any Marlin. You can get a muzzle brake installed but you'll find you don't need one if you use light rounds.

    Porting might be the way to go, Ive never made a round that needed one.

    I just had an accubrake installed on my 300 weatherby for a 53% reduction in recoil,you don't notice hunting but it rared up at the bench.I bet the one for the 460 weatherby would work or I think wildwestguns makes one to thread on.Just make sure it is removable so when hunting you can remove it,they are loud without muffs.

    A mercury tube in the butt will reduce recoil by increasing the mass of your gun relative to the recoiling mass. I have read studies that lend little credence to the claims made by the manufacturers of these devices. (put a lead bar in the stock and compare - then carry that extra load around) You are heading on the right track considering a muzzle break. It would be impractical, and 'butt ugly' to add a commercial break. If you don't like the advice of 'putting a smaller engine in your car to get better mileage' (light load rounds) perhaps you might consider porting the barrel 'ala the marlin Guide Gun series. Looks a whole lot better and actually reduces weight slightly. Do remember that a muzzle break adds considerably to blast felt at the shooter's end and bystanders. Just like every thing in life, there is no free lunch. Good luck, and happy hunting. AC (I shoot my hogs with a .22, .357, or a .44)
