Quiet Muzzle Brakes

Hi All,

Can anybody give me some info on who makes the most quite muzzle brake as well as most effective for recoil control.

I have looked at the following sites and don't know anything about them. Can anybody give me pro's and con's about any of these brakes:

http://www.muzzlebrakes.com/features.htm (Vais Brake)
http://www.gentrycustom.com/muzzlebrake.html (Gentry Brake)
http://www.sgyrifles.com/html/reasse..._building.html (SGY 11 degree brake)
http://www.hollandguns.com/mbrakes.shtml (Holland Brake)

Thanks guys,

R.L. Matthews of Calhoun,Ga. makes a very effective brake it
is not as loud as most brakes I have been exposed to. But I honestly haven't heard all brakes for comparison.Just another variable for you to consider.

Re: Quiet Muzzle Brakes

Generally speaking, brake efficiency and quiet firing run opposite each other. One negates the other. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Except for a Suppressor

A Suppressor can reduce noise and recoil at the same time. Not legal in all states and more expensive.
Suppressor VS Muzzle brake

What VH said.

I prefer the Holland but, have not used them all though. It's very effective.
