The brake for the 50 BMG has the set screws. The smaller versions (fits .223 to .458 +calibers) and does not have set screws but if the rifle/pistol is threaded I have timing washers for the do it yourself people. Or the Smith can time the brake when he threads the Tenon.
The tuned brake is the same design it is just machined/Tuned for a specific cartridge to improve the performance even more.
The 50 BMG brake can be tuned but on the Barrett M82 A1 (A recoil operated rifle) to much reduction will prevent it from operating properly. I can tune the Assassin For other 50 caliber rifles that are bolt or gas operated and reduce recoil even more.
Lots of people are using the Assassin without tuning and are very happy with 55% to 60% recoil reduction.
reduction. Tuning helps all cartridges but the real benefit is with the large overbore cartridges
for Long range hunting/shooting. On some of the cartridges tested the Assassin has exceeded
70% recoil reduction. Even though the tuned Assassin reduces the DB's I still recommend hearing
protection for any rifle/pistol with or without a muzzle brake.
