Cheap Brake Experience?

Anyone use this brake? I don't want to drop a bunch of cash on this gun, but it's brutal to shoot. It's an old cheap flimsy stock staggered feed Savage in 7-mag.

Thanks for your help.

replacing the stock will make a world of difference. but a $30 brake from harrells precision is a great brake and very effective. have your smith give you .020 total bullet clearance (.010 per side)

Re: Cheap Brake Experience?

Wow! Thanks for the hookup on that! I'm probably going to put a Hogue stock on it, but would be happy with a wood takeoff just to get away from the tupperware.

I put a Kick EEZ recoil pad on my wood stocked Rem 700 30-06 last year and LOVE it. May do the same to this once getting a new stock, depending on how well the brake works.

Re: Cheap Brake Experience?

The problem with the Harrels and other brakes of that design is they are not near as efficent and they kick dirt up when the muzzle is close to the ground. I have taken a lot of the less efficent brakes off and replaced with efficient brake and have been told wow what a difference.

Just my 2 cents worth

Re: Cheap Brake Experience?

Referring to the radial port brake? Harrells offers a tactical design similar to the Muscle or PK as well.

Yes the radial hole design used to be the 30.00 one, braking surface and is the main criteria to make them more efficent. I sell one that works really well and is what I recommend but there is a 100 ways to skin a cat.

Re: Cheap Brake Experience?

Golly Steve, that bull bugling on your services page makes me quiver a little... how much for a brake focused on recoil reduction from 70-100g of Retumbo (possible 2 different guns) that will screw onto a .6 (haven't officially measured, but will when I get home- I figure it's around .65) muzzle shipped to 85546? PM?
