Can't you get the boss system added to your rifle?

My understanding is that Browning does not retrofit bosses to rifles and I've not heard of any similar system on the market. As far as I can tell you would have to get a regular non adjustable brake installed.

Browning sells the boss seperately, you then can have a gunsmith install it.

At least they used to sell it seperately.... Think

I looked and looked on their website and it doesn't say anywhere about buying the boss seperate in fact it doesn't even mention it in the custom shop options. Think Confused

Browning won't do it. Even through the custom shop. I tried in vain to get a BAR in .243 with a BOSS on it for a customer of mine who had just had some painful back surgury but refused to give up another season in the woods (my kinda guy). This dude owns a hospital, money was nothing but a thing for him, but it didn't matter, they wouldn't even do it through the custom shop.

I don't know any gunsmiths who will install those things either. Our gunsmith outsources all of that stuff to magna-port or accubrake.

The BOSS system really does work though. I had one when I was younger and the muzzle brake allowed me to shoot a 30/06 even as a 9 year old kid who weighed 70lbs wet. But, the brake as opposed to the conventional recoil (CR) model can do significant damage to your hearing if you do not wear earplugs, even when hunting.

Why on Earth, would anyone need a muzzle break on a 270, or 30-06, even at ten yrs old? IMO, Muzzle brakes are the deval's on invention! Confused

Its not for the muzzel break capabilities as much as for being able to dail in a bullet

I think the non-braked barrel tuner would certainly be a worth-while investment but don't be discouraged from the boss if recoil reduction is also what you are looking for. Just be aware that it comes with a price... increased muzzle blast.
