Re: Muzzel brakes

Hi JDJones 75,
try this link: http://opsinc.us/brake.php
I went to the USA patent office website and read the patent on the Opsinc brake design and it is elegantly simple yet very clever at the same time. From the patent information they appear to be a very impressive and quiet brake he is using powder gases to interact with each other to drive the noise at 90 degrees to the shooter.

Re: Muzzel brakes

Oh , so how does it compair to the Vias break , I have a Vias and a Holland neither are quiet and I understand that their isin't a quiet break but as far as recoil reduction and noise is it as good as the Vias , quieter more effective ??

Re: Muzzel brakes

I have tried pretty much every brake out there and have finally come to rest on the Vais. No, it's not "quiet", but recoil reduction is as good as the JP "Tank Style" brakes. Ops-Inc is a pretty good one too, but the Vais is MUCH better. JP is a REALLY good one to look into as well.

Re: Muzzel brakes

I know this might not interest all of you but there is no better muzzle brake than a suppressor. It makes my 300WSM sound like a .22 and recoil like a .223 with no loss in accuracy. It is by far my coolest toy. It all depends on wich state you are in as to the legalities involved. If you are in a state that you can hunt with them in, you will absolutely love it!
