New Muscle Brake

I have a new "Muscle" brake version available now. It is the mini mag in a round configuration. It has 5/8x24 threads. I had this made after several people asked about it. Just thought I would let you guys know.

Re: New Muscle Brake

Why not the 9/16-24 thread as the slabbed version. A 5/8 diameter thread is too large to put on a #5 contour or smaller.

Re: New Muscle Brake

What are the differences from the old version? They look very similar.

Re: New Muscle Brake

The only difference is that its a round configuration. Something that was available for the mini but not the mini magnum. As far as the threads that was what Jim advised me to go with for it. I took his advice.

Re: New Muscle Brake

I suggested the 5/8x24 because if you have a small barrel dia. you should use the slabbed version (lighter, slimmer profile) With the round version I figured it would go on the heavier barrels up to 1" and can be turned down to .850 dia. to match those profile barrels at the muzzle.

This was always a brake I planned on doing and never did. Sales of the mini magnum muscle brake were out-pacing the first model mini brake so it was the logical progression.
