Learn somethin' new every day here at LRH! Very impressive performance indeed, and was it wrong that I let out a chuckle when I watched the unbraked shot slide all the way back?

Simple, entertaining, and very effective all at the same time

    I did not do that test but I will admit, the 50 AT would be a serious test for any muzzle brake. I would suspect my PK and your brake would perform very similiarly in recoil reduction.

    Yours has a bit more surface area, mine has the better gas redirection control, I would say it would be about a wash in the end. May have to test and see what happens.

    Might need three sheets of plywood for the first, no brake test shot!!!

    APS Painkiller Muzzle Brake vs Defensive Edge Brake

    Are these two brakes comparable or is the APS better? What is the difference between QD Brake and the DE Brake?

    I can't speak from experience concerning the DE brake as I've never used one, I've only seen the pics that Shawn has posted and read what people say that have the DE brake. I'd venture a guess that the DE brake is every bit as good as the QD and probably even better due to the design of the DE brake.

    Having tested the QD brake, which is similar in size and design to the DE brake, against the PK brake I'd say that the PK brake is probably the more efficient brake when it comes to maximum braking ability. This is due to the size and design of the PK brake.

    I'd guess that most people will make their decision when purchasing a brake based on aesthetics and advertising hype vs. true braking ability. I wanted the maximum braking ability and I got it for sure.;)
