"Muzzle break" LOOOL! Sorry to hear about your problem. An aluminum barrel would be sick as hell on that gun of yours.

If we're doing "English 101", you still seem to be using "it's" for the possessive "its".
Possessive pronouns do not have apostrophes (except when "One" is used as a pronoun).
If you're about to tell me I used to do it - well, whoopdedoo. I know that.

Mr Crowley,

Why didn't you just make a muzzle brake out of another length of pipe and attach it to the end of your barrel, especially if it was only for looks? At least that way, if it broke, you could just make another one. if strength was a concern, you could've made it out of a more robust material, say, steel or aluminum tubing.

Sorry, just had to throw in my two cents.

Effect is the word you want. It is effect, as in "special effects".

Affect, is what you did to the barrel, when you drilled and cut it. You affected it. You didn't effect it.

If you can't fix it, you don't own it.

Well if I used another length of pipe I need it to fit perfectly over it, which I didn't have. I didn't have any materials for any external device and I didn't feel like spending money on any.
