Muzzle Brakes from E. Arthur Brown Company
Precision Muzzle Brakes and Precision Installation Service for Accuracy and Function...Our selection of muzzle brakes represents the traditional as well as the exotic but always with the emphasis on accuracy, functionality, and value. When accuracy is a priority, installation requires proper centering and alignment. And, even though the crown of the barrel is out of sight at the rear of the brake, it is extremely critical to the accuracy of the firearm after the installation. Note: INSTALLED brakes are a custom machining and Gunsmithing service... delivery is approximately 4-6 weeks.
Scroll Down for Brake and Installation Details - We have muzzle brakes in several different configurations. All of them work from advanced use of muzzle gas pressure but each has a different approach and may be more suitable to a particular situation, rifle, or cartridge. The video gives you an idea what they look like installed on barrels or firearms. Written detail is available below. Please Scroll Down...
A properly installed muzzle brake WILL NOT HURT ACCURACY. In fact, a brake that we install here at EABCO will very likely improve your accuracy... Our align-ment and target crown achieve this.
2. Will A Brake Reduce Velocity?
No... The brake itself has little or no effect on the velocity of your bullets. Barrel length determines velocity. If you want your barrel shortened during the brake installation, the shorter barrel will reduce velocity... But it won't be due to anything from the brake.
3. How Much Recoil Reduction?
It's impossible to give an exact amount of recoil reduction that you can expect. Guns differ in length, weight, and barrel height above the stock. Shooters may "perceive" recoil differently than other shooters. And of course different cartridges, bullet weights, and loads will recoil differently.
We have attempted to give a rough idea in the muzzle brake descriptions, BUT... We have to say words like "Up To X%".
Our Precision Installation ProcessOur selection of muzzle brakes represents the the traditional as well as the exotic but always with the emphasis on accuracy, functionality, and value. When accuracy is a priority, installation requires proper centering and alignment. And, even though the crown of the barrel is out of sight at the rear of the brake, it is extremely critical to the accuracy of the firearm after the installation. For this reason, our muzzle brake installations are secured in place with Loctite and not intended for you to take them off and on (like the loose fitting threads of a flash suppressor, for example).
Note: Installed muzzle brakes are a custom machining and Gunsmithing service that we perform here at E. Arthur Brown Company... delivery is approximately 4-6 weeks.
On-Center Threaded Brakes - Our muzzle brakes are all threaded on-center with the bore. This assures that the exit hole is aligned with the bullet path and that ignition gases affect the bullet equally on all sides... which is the best condition for accuracy.
C-T-C 11º Target Crown - After the muzzle is threaded and before the brake is installed, we cut the crown. Our crowning system aligns the muzzle and the chamber between centers (C-T-C) to assure that a perfect crown is cut. This crown is inspected with a loupe to be sure it is perfect before the muzzle brake is installed.
No-Stress Mounting - Our muzzle brake threads are snug with no wobble... again to assure alignment and accuracy. Beyond this, we install them with a zero-torque method to be sure no stress is introduced into the barrel. And finally to assure accuracy, they are sealed in place with red loctite.

JP Howitzer Brake vs. Lazzeroni WarbirdAn Unsolicited Video Recoil Test by Kelly Alwood - Infidel Films
We found this video on YouTube that shows the difference in recoil when the JP Brake is installed on a magnum center fire bolt action rifle. It shows the shooter triggering shots from the prone (laying down) shooting position with a rifle chambered in "7.82 Lazzeroni Warbird". The shooter describes the cartridge as having ballistics similar to a 300 Win Mag. Recoil can be especially punishing when you are shooting prone.
The video shows the exact same rifle and shooter with the JP Brake removed and then with the JP Brake screwed on. Shots are shown in real time and later in slow motion... Quite an effective demonstration of the actual result of installing the JP Brake.
For the purposes of demonstration, the video shows Mr. Alwood screwing the Brake on and off the muzzle of the rifle. For the best potential accuracy however, we recommend that brakes be installed with close fitting threads and fixed in place with red loctite... This keeps the exit hole in the center and secures it from any chance of wobble.

Brockman Open/Close Muzzle Brake System
Noise Control - "Will it hurt my ears when I'm hunting?". All muzzle brakes redirect gas and sound to the sides rather than forward... which makes them all louder than shooting a gun with no muzzle brake. The Brockman Brake has the option of opening and closing the gas ports... Essentially turning the brake on or off without removing it. You can open the ports and enjoy the recoil reduction while working up loads, sighting in, and practicing. Then, just close the ports if you want to go hunting with normal muzzle noise*. Same accuracy, same sight zero.
Locked-In Precision - Muzzle Brakes are not like flash suppressors that can be just screwed on and off. Accuracy and recoil reduction require that they have very close and even clearance with the bullet (measured in thousandths). The Brockman Brake is precision threaded and rigidly installed with 11º target crown on center with the bore. Only the outer sleeve moves to open and close ports.
Shoot Better with Less Recoil - Pendulum tested to reduce recoil by up to 47%, the Brockman Brake will make any rifle easier to shoot well. You'll shoot better from a rest when your rifle stops jumping around on the bags and you concentrate. You'll shoot better off-hand when you practice with the brake and stop flinching and jerking the trigger.
Physical Requirements - Calibers from .224 to .338, minimum muzzle diameter of .730". Maximum .875". The brake itself is .875" in diameter and our installation bevels at the rear to transition nicely to your barrel diameter.
