Clamp On Muzzle Brake


Before I write the review I will start by explaining why I was in need of a muzzle brake. I am relatively new to long range shooting and I bought a Savage 111 with factory stock and sporter barrel in 7 rem mag as a project gun due to the cost of initial ownership. I see now why most people don't like shooting this gun due to the recoil that feels being hit in the shoulder with a hammer on every shot. This is when I decided to look for clamp on style of brakes since I didn't want to thread this barrel. I had found a different mfg. that I was going to use then I found Witt Machine. I read the reviews and at the price point of almost half of the other type of clamp on brake I was looking at I decided to try it out. I received my order as promised and I was very impressed with the inital observation of the overall workmanship and quality finish (I had my brake finished with Cerakote). I then followed the quide to install the brake onto my rifle and it could not have been easier. Now to the fun part. Yesterday, 7/26/13, I was finally able to get out to the range to see how the brake performed. The one word that would sum it up is "Unbelievable". The first shot I took I was prepared to be hit in the shoulder, maybe not as bad, but I still expected to feel the pain of shooting a magnum caliber round. But to my unexpected surprise I really felt nothing, but the light push of pressure. Also, instead of my barrel jumping off the table by several inches there was little to no barrel rise. The only down side to this of this brake, in my opinion, is that I found myself going through a lot more ammunition due to not having to stop and recover from the previously violent recoil. I would recommend this product 100% to anyone looking to tame the recoil of a magnum caliber rifle or anyone looking to prevent muzzle rise so they can reaquire their target faster. I know if I am ever in need of another brake Witt Machine is who I will purchase it from.
