    Hey guys here’s a short video of me testing out my new .50 BMG muzzle brake on my .50 Beowullf <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" /><o:p></o:p>
    <o:p></o:p>
    The Brake overall reduced the felt recoil by at least 50%... <o:p></o:p>

    Here are some quick pics while the video is loading.. <o:p></o:p>

    Thanks for posting. How did the smaller brake do?

    Obviously video production & editing aren't your strong suit. I think the shark tooth design on the muzzle brake is cheesy too. Other than that, I have nothing to say.

    I actually think the shark teeth look pretty awesome.

    Think that brake might be overkill on an AR, though...

    Very cool. :supergrin:

    What shooting range in So-Cal are you shooting that beast?
     
  8. Thanks for sharing. Interesting. I've been thinking of getting a Beowulf.

    I thought the editing was fine. I hate the people that include all that extra NOTHING.

    As for the painting on the muzzle break, I think it is pretty funny. It is obviously not a serious paint job. I like it! :supergrin:

    I also meant to ask, what type of set up do you have on that rifle? I assume you are either a LEO or have an "off list lower", a fixed mag, and the magazine is less than 10 rounds. :dunno:

    The first range is Burro Canyon in Angeles Crest I think. I love that place best shooting range in socal IMO. Nice brake, maybe Ill see you out there sometime. My shooting buddy is out of HB also.

    Seems to me that would be a beast to swing from target to target. If all you are going to do is shoot off of a bench.....also brakes can do funny things re backpressure, what does the manufacturer offer , the first smaller brake? That would be much handier. I am guessing my Marlin Guide Gun with hot loads is going to hit harder have to look it up, but it is not semi auto. It is a beast with 450 grain cast and 47grains of RL-15(I think, haven't shot it for several years) If you dont like the flames, just shoot it a little , they will go away. I have an AR-50, and it does not kick as much as a slug gun either, but it weighs 36 pounds too, I feel for you living there with those laws, but I guess there are jobs(I think) and the weather is nice.

    between 1:17 and 1:30 in that video you have your hand over the end of the barrel while you are unscrewing the muzzle break with a full mag in the gun and the action locked open. Seems unwise if something gets bumped. Always ensure the gun is unloaded before you work on it so you don't end up with a .50 hole in your palm.

    Heaven forbid a gust of wind comes and the bolt release gets pushed, the safety gets disengaged, and the trigger gets pulled! :rofl:

    You're still putting your hand in front of a loaded weapon. Just because it's unlikely doesn't mean he's not breaking one of the cardinal rules of gun safety. A glock won't go bang without my finger on the trigger, but I'm not gonna cover the barrel with my hand when it's loaded and my finger is off trigger. How hard would it have been to drop the mag and make the gun safe before unscrewing the break?
