Almost finished with my SPR project. All I need is the brake and collar. Anyone know where I can get the 'real deal'?

MSTN. I don't think anybody else sells them.

And guess what...I think he only sells the collars with the barrels.

100% correct on both statements.

Yep the only way you could have got one is paying the $700 bucks for the barrel/brake/collar combo from MSTN.

If you just want the looks, get them at ADCO. The ADCO brake's knurled nut is cosmetic and can't be unscrewed (the OPS brake has threads protected by the nut), and the inside isn't hollowed out like the OPS unit. Works well in taming the muzzle rise, I haven't shot it at night to see if it diminishes flash though.

MSTN will sell just then brake and collar without the barrel. Call him or send him an email. I think it's around 180 or 200.

THIS IS TO ENSURE THAT, IN THE ADMITTEDLY UNLIKELY EVENT SOMEONE WERE TO INSTALL A 12TH MODEL SOUND SUPPRESSOR ON ONE OF HIS BRAKES, THE COMBINATION WOULD FUNCTION SAFELY.

WE HAVE ONLY SOLD THE OPS-INC MILITARY BRAKES WITH:

1. RETROFIT ITEMS FOR OUR DOZEN CRANE CONTRACTOR-BUILT SPR UPPERS WE GOT BACK IN '02. THE BRAKES WERE NOT AVAILABLE WHEN THEY WERE BUILT.

2. OUR OWN SPR "CLONE" UPPERS.

3. OUR SPR CONTOUR BARRELS BY COMPASS LAKE.

4. SPR CONTOUR BARRELS BY GENE BARNETT.

Didn't Barnett make the original military SPR barrels?

Supply and demand I guess.




Some of us would rather have the real deal than a knock-off muzzle device. Same reason I don't buy airsoft, it might look like the real deal, but in the end it's just a fake.

Others just want 'the look'. Different strokes for different folks... No offense to the just for looks crowd.

My bad, I purchased all the parts from MSTN, but separately...He already knew what barrel I had. Sorry

My SPR is an MSTN built upper. Wes, I don't see the brake and/or collar on the website.

WE DO NOT SELL THE OPS INC BRAKE AND COLLAR SEPARATELY, EVER, UNLESS YOU HAVE ALREADY GOT AN SPR-CLONE BARREL OR UPPER FROM US & WE KNOW YOU.

WES



Wes - My MSTN built upper came via AL. Yu may remember me as we talked several times via email.

I will get back in touch with you.
