  • Have been looking into some of the muzzle brake and look into this one.
    I there anyone out there that can verifier the below statement.   

    The JP Howitzer Muzzle Brake is radical looking but is honestly the most effective muzzle brake we've ever seen. We say it reduces recoil up to 100% because in most cases a gun equipped with the JP Brake just stands still during recoil

  • I cannot speak for other breaks, but I have an old ultrabrake, that is big and funny looking on my .300 win mag.  It reduces recoil to basically nil with any bullet up to 180 grains.  as you get into heavier bullets the recoil increases exponentially.  Max loads with 200 grain bullets down right hurt when fired wearing only a t-shirt.  I think breaks are good but they have their limitations.  If you are shooting at a range where others are shooting next to you then they are a bad idea as the noise and muzzle blast/percussion can be tremendous.

  • I'd love to hear how they work! I can't bring myself to the point of buying anything that looks like that but if it works as well as they say then it might be worth throwing on a long range varmint rig! :)

  • They work real good and so does a vais brake and so on .But the jp works real well as a friend has one on an encore pistol.I made my own muzzle brake for my 30-06 encore and now it fells like a 44 special. I made mine out of titanium for fun,dont really need exotics though.Brakes really work and to say they dont is from inexperience.

  • Muzzle brakes do a great job at decreasing recoil but to claim 100% reduction is a blatant lie and an obvious attempt at deceit and I would not do business with anyone who would intentionally and obviously try to deceive me or think I was gullible enough to believe it.

  • I saw a video where a guy shot a rifle equiped with a JP howitzer with the butt on the tip of his nose. It was a rather large caliber as well. He was fine afterwards.

  • I no brake reduces 100% recoil, at least on a riffle that has recoil to begin with.  if you put a brake on a 17HMR it won't have any recoil.  we sell our Tank Brake, and it will reduce recoil on a 338 edge with 300gr bullets by 50-75% but it still has some recoil.  now we have put them on smaller rifles like a 7mm-08 and it has almost no recoil, but it didn't have any to speak of before.

  • They do look good.  The best one I have ever used is the ArmaLite break.  They are big and bulky but a 338LM with an aluminum but plate is a pleasure to shoot.
    They say “I am pro hunter.”  Means they do not care about your handguns or your AR-15.
    They say “I am progun but why do you have to have a 15 or 30 rd mag.” They are antigun.
    Are you progun or antigun?
