    I would assume this will definitely suppress the sound. What's your thought on that?

    I would get it for my Forward 45 on looks alone, can just add end module to existing. Other than that I am not sure what it achieves other than being a louder suppressor and quieter brake??
    @MSL will have a view.

    I think the idea is to reduce the concussion to make shooting a two day match bearable without sacrificing the ability to stay on target with a brake. Actually suppressing the sound doesn’t have much to do with it. Are 419 make a similar product and there is a good review on the ultimate reloader YouTube channel about it.

    I have 2 A-Tec suppressors, although not one of these. I have a Carbon 2 on a .243, and an Optima on a .270 and they are both excellent suppressors. They are noticeably quieter than the locally made suppressors my mates use.

    I cant imagine the brake being very effective as presumably it is using the already expanded and cooled gasses from the suppressor?
    I have been wrong before tho.
    I have one A-tec suppressor and while subjective I think it works better than dpt and sonic I also have (tho on different chamberings)
    I actually was surprised how much it reduced recoil being that suppressors are not real good at that anyway compared to a brake.

    I have seen one of these but not used. I have used a similar design one of a different brand. It was very quiet, amd reduced recoil more than a std can. Down fall is they are reasonably long.
