DUCKBUTTER? But smart assed comments aside, that is precisely the reason why I went through all the trouble of removing the JP Enterprises brake from my barreled upper. I COULD NOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME EFFECTIVELY CLEAN THE MUZZLE! Talk about a pain in the butt, no chance in hell of cleaning the carbon fouling from what is by design supposed to be an accurate rifle.

And we have a winner! This was an ordinary old-style postban Bushmaster barrel with a pinned, pressed, and epoxied on AK style brake. I'd long ago cut the pin out in an attempt to get the brake off, but the epoxy was too strong to break. That is until I was shooting, and shooting alot and all of a sudden the brake was gone. It went about 20yds down range. I guess I got it hot enough to loosen the epoxy. The carbon build up didn't come off very easily in fact I resorted to using a mill file to cut it down.
