Center Shot Rifles Premier Product The Muscle brake
The Muscle brake was designed specifically with the 90 degree first port, to shear the back blast away from the shooter. The concept of this brake was to protect specialty handgun shooters, from the severe concussion/blast effect of traditional angle ported brakes. The benefits of eliminated concussion in conjunction with the angled ports will prove popular with magnum rifle enthusiasts as well.
THE MUSCLE BRAKE WILL NOT DISAPPOINT, I GUARANTEE IT.
The Muscle brakes are made of 416SS, and hardened to 30 Rockwell. The benefits of the Muscle brake; increased recoil reduction, concussion elimination, NO BACK BLAST to the shooter compared to typical angle port, and radial port brakes, and the brake to barrel joint can be tapered and blended for a seamless appearance. (Turning down of the brakes OD is not recommended, and may affect performance.)
Gunsmiths/Dealer pricing is available, with additional quantity discounts.
- 3 port, $115 shipped, or $210 installed
- 4 port, $125 shipped, or $225 installed
- Magnum 4 port $150 shipped or $250 installed
Choosing the right size Muscle Brake
The mini Muscle Brake:
Was designed for cartridges of 30 caliber and less burning 65 grains of powder or less. The best performance is in the .22cal. thru 7mm standard cartridge, and any of the varmit class cartridges. The slabbed version is great for light deer/sheep rifles.
9/16x24tpi, slabbed model fits muzzle diameter of .620" to .850" ; round version up to .990".

The NEW mini magnum Muscle Brake:
Now fit a Muscle brake to your factory magnum rifle! Was designed to fit factory sporter weight barrel contours with muzzle dia. of .620" to .850". This brake is very close in size to the mini, just a tad longer for the increased port volume. I designed this brake to work with magnum cartridges, yet maintain a smaller profile. Where the original mini excelled with the smaller chamberings, this new design should be perfect for sporter barrels in WSM and standard Magnum cartridges. It will also reduce the recoil on the Ultra Mags to an acceptable level.
9/16x24tpi, slabbed model fits muzzle diameter of .620" to .850".
The original 3 Port Muscle Brake:
This brake works on anything from the 243 up to the 338 Lapua. 45 to 95 grains of powder is covered pretty well by the one and only original Muscle Brake.
5/8x24 tpi. slabbed model fits muzzle dia. of .685" and up to .990", round version up to 1.225".
The top ported 3 port is the preferred model for specialty handguns. Works great on rifles too!
The 4 Port Muscle Brake:
This brake came out of the need to bridge the gap between the Magnum 4 port and the original 3 port. I envision this brake as the go to unit for the RUM and Lapua based Magnums. It should gain a slight edge on the original 3 port.
5/8x24 tpi. slabbed model fits muzzle dia. of .685" and up to .985"
3/4x24 tpi. round model fits Muzzle dia. of .830" and up to 1.230"
The Magnum 4 Port Muscle Brake:
This mighty brake was designed for the Chey tac and Snipe tac sized offerings. Anything burning over 100 grains of powder will feel like a pussy cat with this brake. (short of the big 50).
This magnum 4 port is now offered with a 3/4"x24 tpi thread tennon, and will fit barrel dia of .875"- 1.250" in the slabbed version, and up to 1.5" in the round version.
What users of the muscle brake have to say?
"The recoil reduction performance of the Muscle Brake was simply superlative! I would recommend Jim's product in a heart-beat, without hesitation!"
"Since the Muscle brake install the rifle is definitely a "pussycat" to shoot and easy to control with the added benefit of no backblast whatsoever! I have fired other rifles equipped with muzzle brakes but most had an unpleasant backblast which in itself can lead to a dreaded flinch. Now becoming comfortable with this rifle has led me to a .194" group on my second 3 shot load development. Thanks again for a well designed product that actually does just what it was supposed to do with no hype whatsoever."
"I will say this about the Muscle brakes or CSR brakes. I will never have any other make brake put on my rifles. Jim's brakes are awesome in performance. I shoot my Dakota and Kevins Cheytac free recoil with no issues ever. Shooting this style at these matches I can most of the time get back on to see my hits at 800 yards. If I was full shoulder into the rifle no doubt I could spot hits even closer than that. I've seen many other brakes come in when bought and the finish is terrible...not so with Jim's brakes. I had a VAIS brake on my other rifle. The performance of the VAIS wasn't even close to the Muscle Brake."
