    Anyone have experience with a Blaser type A muzzle brake?

    Hi All,

    I would appreciate if anyone here could tell me of there experience with a Blaser type A muzzle brake?
    I'm considering getting one and with all previous purchase I asked advice here and got good solid answers

    Many thanks

    Regards,

    Why would you want a brake? A great portion of percived recoil comes from the sound of the shot. Adding a brake generally increases the sound and I have never seen one that reduced it in any way. Once had a moderator maker take a mod for a 308, open it for 338L and call it a brake but that was not truely a brake.

    I'm sorry, I think I have misread your post ?

    'I have never seen one that reduces it in any way' is the bit I keep re-reading.

    I use the std Sako brake on my TRG when on the range, and going back to the moderator results in a very noticeable increase in recoil, and movement upon the shot, taking the mod off increases it again.

    Fired with a bare muzzle, I sometimes get back on target to spot any splash, at 600 yds, with the brake, I can see the impact at 100 yds.

    I do agree with the noise though, particularly if you are beside a brake.

    I have a K95 with the muzzle mag-na-ported and its a significant aid to keeping the scope on the quarry. I see the impact & reaction to shot clearly, so I instantly know that the shot is good.
    The down side is the blast and noise to others when on a range.....not that I worry much about that though. ATB

    Its just a variation on the Vias style (radial ported) brake.

    There is the ASI quiet linear compensator on this page. How good would this be? Noise will be directed forward.

    I do don't know about an A Brake but I use a pepper pot type brake on R93 in both 300WM and 9.3x62. The reduction in recoil is very noticeable and makes shooting a much more pleasant experience. Ear protection is an absolute must if you value your hearing as the report is deafening.

    then you need to shoot more rifles with them fitted to understand it

    I have had three different brake designs on a 270 and 300WM and they all reduce recoil considerably
    Its simple physics

    consider this with a .223 and 25gr of powder
    skip to 2m:10sec to see real reduction




    now imagine what that will do with 90gr of powder in a 300WM

    Hi All,


    I appreciate your response. I'm going to purchase one and will repost back with the results.
    I'm very impressed with what the "The Tramp" said and its for this very reason I am going to add one to the rifle.

    Regards,
    Glendine.
