I would like to put a muzzle brake on my RRA varminter. Is this possible...who could turn my barrel down and thread it. Also, if this is possible who makes the most efficient and effective brake? Even if it is not possible to do to my RRA varminter, I would still like to know who makes the best brake because I can put it on another gun.

Thanks

Best is probably from JP Enterprises. You're gonna be unpopular at the range though.

Yeah I know they're loud as all get out, but I shot a guys AR today that had a nice brake on it and there was absolutely no "kick." I don't think the .223 really kicks, but I do think a brake on my varminter would be nice for quick and accurate follow ups.

+1 for JP. I have the BC brake, and it's great. I'm sure their JP model is even better. I haven't shot too many others to compare, but I'm happy.

Mini-Y if you dont mind the blast. It's a HOOT on a 7.5" running Full-auto.

I screwed it on my heavy barreled 22-250 bolt gun, and the thing had less bump than a 22LR.

Thanks for the replies....but does anybody know who can turn my barrel down and thread it properly? What should this work run me?

why are you guys getting compensators/muzzle brakes for a .223/5.56x45 rifle???

There's zero recoil from the AR-15. I could shoot it full-auto and not have a splitting headache after 300+ rounds.

My Vepr K (7.62x39) will give me shoulder and neck pains along with a migraine after 60 rd of single shot firing (one every 10-15 seconds).

Any qualified machinist with a lathe and maybe $50.

I agree that the recoil of the .223 is negligible, but if you read my post above you would know that I want one to put on a heavy varmint upper in order to make quick and accurate follow up shots. I was never a big believer in muzzle brakes until I shot a members Bennie Cooley equipped rifle.

Thanks for the replies
