    Why did he say he couldn't add it? What's your barrel profile?

    You can get no-bottom-port brakes from Defensive Edge, Center Shot, and a number of others.

    he said that the barrel should be ported and it would cost like 400 bucks. i was just looking at holland brakes and they have all kinds of brakes straight , tapered etc.I think this guy is full of it. i would have to get barrel threaded then brake should just screw on. I think this guys tryin to pull a fast one on me...

    It's time for you to find a better gunsmith! For $250 or less, you can get a very effective muzzle brake installed to meet your requirement.
