    What do you think of the adjustable brake such as comes on the TRG-42 which can be rotated? Would it be less intricate work than a threaded brake because of not having to worry about timing??

    Thanks!

    The brakes of that design type are a thread and clamp system. Crush washers are another method of timing without moving the shoulder. The trade of is aesthetics. You can't blend brakes timed this way. Some folks like the brake to look like an accessory. I like 'em to like like part of the rifle.
