    Muzzle brakes

    Hi guys I've bought some muzzle brakes in from China to modify for some mates so thought I'd offer some on here, I have run them on my rifles and they do as good job as a dpt directional as far as I could feel. I bring them in as 22 cal 1/2x28 but can open them up to any calibre you need and can do them in most threads, $70 plus postage.

    I believe it's pretty reasonable to expect someone to make money on these. Hopefully people take you up on this.

    Can you do one in 6.5mm 15x1? Do you have a crush washer or similar to time it?

    Don't have a crush washer sorry I usually time them to the rifle when I fit them, could do a jam nut for a bit extra but they look a bit ugly, if you know somebody with a lathe it's a 10 min job to time it.

    You should immediately lower the price to bugger all. HOW DARE YOU try to make a profit.

    And woe betide you if you raise an eyebrow when some dude charges $120 per hour to do
    some stuff on your car or fix a plumbing or electrical or building or legal issue or some shit.

    Haha yea some people just don't appreciate other people's time, think they should do everything for nothing or bugger all, It bugs me when people buy somthing for $3 an try flick it on here for $20 without doing anything but I thought my price was pretty fair since most people on here don't have access to machine tools to modify them themselves but S.E.G seems to have taken it upon himself to troll my posts with that crap, probably the kind of person that complains when the plumber charges a callout fee.

    If he thinks the Plumber cost a lot wait till he gets a boat. Mind you some companies set their charge out rates/pricing to weed out the jobs they don't actually want!

    Not trolling just offering an alternative view, like I said not a bad mark up for a 1/2x28 muzzle brake.

    I can do a 15x1 thread but because I don't have a tap I wouldn't want to without having your rifle to fit it to sorry. I have a 15x1 tap on the way but it won't be here for a few weeks.
