For Opposable Grip aficionados, the pic does not show the off hand thumb on Pedal BUT is does show perfect index to pinkie opposition rhythm with simultaneous presentation close to face than customary. Result, faster and more reliable acquisition.

What to do if you cant time your brake with crush washer provided

on December 30, 2016

What to do? I cant make my SuperComp® brake time right with the Crush Washer you provided. It wont go on all the way.

This is a common and easily remedied problem. It stems from fact that threads on barrel vary widely and there is no common industry standard end point.

Here is what to do. Clean threads on brake and barrel thoroughly. Screw on brake finger tight. It should go on most of the way. If it does not, something is up with incorrect threading and stop there.

If it does screw most of way,  Then apply up to 90 ft pounds of torque with barrel vice and torque wrench to time brake to twelve o’clock. If you are not able to apply that much torque or it still does not line up remove brake and washer. Take a flat file or course sandpaper and take 3 or 4 thousands of inch off width of crush washer. Try again. Repeat as many time as you need so you can get it timed with about 30 ft pounds of torque. Or you can try a thinner or thicker crush washer.

 

And yes we strongly recommend use of crush washer because eventually after several thousand rounds you will want to remove it to clean the crown of barrel or accuracy will suffer. There will always be a slight carbon buildup at end of last thread on barrel which eventually works its way across crown to bore. If you Locktite it you are stuck and cant remove for cleaning. If you don’t want to go through with above procedure you can use a Jam Nut but I don’t recommend it because sometimes they loosen.

You can also try different brand of crush washer, as some are thicker or thinner than others. Its really just the luck of the draw whether the crush washer you use matches, your barrel threading as all manufacturers are a little different.

Do not think it is fault of brake. All SuperComp® brakes have threads cut with multiple pass single point cutting which is much more expensive to do than most manufacturers and gives a much more precise thread.

New SuperComp Parts

on August 01, 2016

How do you make the never have failed SuperComp® Brake even tougher? As most of you know, no SuperComp® Brake has ever failed, NEVER. But we wanted to make it even tougher. So we started out with  17-4 martensitic precipitation hardened stainless steel (Not your fathers's stainless). 17-4 is extremely hard and corrosion resistant. It is usually used for vital aircraft parts. We added extremely hard Black Nitride. Result, not only our great performing brake but one that will likely require minimal maintenance over time.

As follower of GoGun® USA  you may know, our best selling finish is Black Parkerize on Chrome Moly 4140. Parkerize is a great finish as it can appear flat black or shiny depending on how much oil you put on it. It is a very long lasting finish. The only drawback to parkerize is if kept in a humid atmosphere or not oiled regularly, it can corrode. Black Nitride is shinier, a semigloss finish. It is very good looking deep black with just enough shine to show contours. The big attraction of Black Nitride is on Stainless it rarely if ever corrodes. Last years Stainless model was 416, a much easier metal to machine but is softer so we heat treated it after. 416 is what most Stainless Steel barrels are made from.

We don’t know of any other manufacturer that has taken the time to try and tame this very strong combination for firearms parts. Frankly it just plain takes a lot of time to get right. Look for it on our SuperComp® brakes. For now we are starting with our SuperComp® XL for .223,.308 and 7.62 x 39 (AK version). Look for it on other models if our shooters like it.
