Re: muzzle break

I thought about it but then I found Ross Schuler's brakes finished for $40-$45 They are beautiful, very effective and far better priced than the competitions. I spent $225 on my wife's first brake and then did a major upgrade to Ross's $40 brake.

Re: muzzle break

Experimenting is how just about all of the muzzle brakes came about. If you want to do it yourself I'd say go for it. That is one of the reasons I bought a lathe and mill. If you don't want to do it yourself my brakes are less than 1/3 the price you quoted.

I build mine. Basic, accurate machine work. I've found a simple 1/4" three port baffle brake as effective as anything. Clean and simple to machine.

Re: muzzle break

As to the PTG blanks... heck, that's the easy part. ...might as well start from scratch. Milling the baffles, is the tough (if not time consuming) part.

Re: muzzle break

I haven't put a photo on here for ages. Somebody remind me how, and I'll post a pic or two. Can it be done without going through an internet picture host?

Re: muzzle break

Grit,

Below the response screen there is a tab that says manage attachments. You click on that and it pops up with another screen. Clicks the browse button and find the picture (up to 4 or so) and then upload the pictures. After that submit the response.
