    Has anybody on here ever used a guide series muzzle brake from Williams Gun Sight in Davidson, Michigan on any of your rifles or long range rigs? I'm looking to send off my Savage model 11 300wsm because they seem to have the best prices $199. I'd appreciate the feed back on anyone who has had any gunsmith work through them.

    Thanks - J.J.

    I also found a gunsmith in Nevada that makes the " Baker Brake " wondering if anyone has one of those? They look very similar to the vias brake

    I have one of Jim's Muscle Brakes. I absolutely LOVE EM! & I have no qualms recommending (or seconding the recommendation in this case).
    Very effective, & with quality components.

    Oh ya, I'm not alone either. There's a TON of LRH members who swear by these brakes too.

    I'm not knocking anyone's product, or price. There are alot of effective timed brakes on the market like Jims brake, Ross' brake, Kirby's brake, Nates brake, Shawns brake etc. just to name a few. Prices ranging from "scary" cheap to "you gotta be outa your mind" expensive and everywhere in between. There are many factors to consider whats "best for you". Quality of components, price, proven track record, availability, number & size of ports in perportion to case capacity, outside diameter, slab or round, durability, the person or shop doing the install etc. Best isn't always the cheapest or most expensive. It's a personal choice considering many variables.
    But I'm flat out sold on CSR Brakes cause I'm a believer in getting what you pay for, as well as being frugal with my money. My CSR brake was worth every penny & then some.
