Very interesting Feenix. I will study it more.

We looked at the load sell and most of them did not have the range that was needed and the speed
to give an accurate reading.

We did not look at this system because of price. The friend that shot the video built a sled system
with springs and ball bearing tracks with a tell tail to measure travel against the springs and we intend to test it out using a known standard as our bench mark of 24 ft/lbs. it will not give exact
numbers but it should be a good tool for comparison of one brake to another.

To Barnesuser 28 we did the free rifle test using the Barrett M82 AI and with my brake it only moved 7 or 8 inches with the factory brake I had to catch the rifle as it tried to do a triple salchow (Or back
flip to us rednecks). I was afraid to fire it on a slick surface for fear of it going into a different zip code.

It would be nice to have a reasonable costing recoil tool but for now it will just have to be our
shoulders.

Keep the comments coming.

I did a lot of electro-mechanical prototype and manufacturing quality control testing in the early 1980s that involved tensile strengths, force, etc... some of which are push/pull testers with various equipment but Chatillon is the only one that comes to mind now. I've been out of the machine shop/manufacturing for so long now but you could probably rig up a push-pull gauge system for under $100 from the link ...

Push Pull Gauge in Metalworking Inspection Gauges | eBay

Good luck!
