Re: Center Shot Rifles Mini Magnum Muscle Brake Review

That rifle is about a #3 contour. Sounds like your rifle will have minimal recoil at 12.5 lbs but as long as your breaking it i would step up the the mini magnum for that little extra boost in recoil reduction. Its a wee bit longer than the mini muscle brake not enough to matter one way or the other. My vote goes to the mini magnum for sure. I have at least 1 of each of his brakes except the 4 portmuscle brak, and this is one of my favorites.

I just checked out Jim's website and I believe the new Mini Magnum will be the one for me. Sorry Mike, I should have done that before I hit you up with the 20 questions!

Great product! I kinda wonder if me asking him if the mini would work for a 300 winny a couple months back might have spurred his imagination on this? One can dream i guess.

Re: Center Shot Rifles Mini Magnum Muscle Brake Review

Thanks for the write up Mike.

The mini magnum came out of the guys asking for a brake to fit factory contours and lighter barrels, the standard Muscle has a 5/8x24 tpi which limitted it to #5 countours and larger, the mini with it's 9/16 24 tpi worked on the smaller cartriges 300 wsm on down, I wanted a brake to work on the larger magnums and ultra magnums that shared the smaller profile of the mini, for one the smaller size looks better on the thinner barrels.

I just installed one on a 338 ultra mag in the rem xcr, when the costomer gets it shooting I will ask for a report on effectiveness. so far the mini magnum has been selling very well.

Re: Center Shot Rifles Mini Magnum Muscle Brake Review

I ordered a mini mag break for my 300WSM project as well and it is going on a #5 barrel, I hope to be getting a phone call within the next week or so saying it is ready. I cant wait to get this thing shooting, Ill post pics when I get it back. Jim was very easy to deal with and very informative on what I neede to have the smith do, I plan on buying many more breaks from him in the future maybe even have him build me a rifle some day.

Re: Center Shot Rifles Mini Magnum Muscle Brake Review

So I stopped by my Gunsmith Wednesday for the last fitting and just to see how it was coming the mini mag break ties in perfectly on a #5 contour barrel with only about .25" hanging over the sides of the barrel when its polished down to tie in to the crwn it give the gun a very sleek look. My gun will be ready Monday with pics to come.
