Shameless Plug for Ross Schuler

Postby Hoot » Sun Feb 19, 2017 11:58 am

I'm a big believer in word of mouth promotion. Ross has been making muzzle brakes for us and many other customers for 6+ years. He has advanced his capabilities over that time to where the mundane has become a labor of love. To that end, I wanted to share a recent experience with you.

Some members regale in their tolerance for recoil and that's fine. I often spend hours on a bench setup, pounding away at different load experiments. I've tried a Lead Sled, but it makes the experience too removed from actually shooting. Admittedly, it removes the influence your personal flaws have upon a test result where the load is supposed to be the test subject, not you. So, whenever I can reasonably reduce perceived recoil, I'm all on board with that. I had corrective surgery on my shooting shoulder back in 98 and I like it staying the way it is.

As I'm quick to say, I love my Bartz Upper, but it came without a threaded muzzle. I wanted to have my barrel threaded for one of Ross' brakes, so I approached him about not only making me a brake, but also threading the barrel for me. He agreed and I shipped him my (used) barrel to get it done on Monday the 13th. It arrived on Wednesday the 15th and he had it done and back in the mail on the 16th. It arrived back home on Saturday the 17th. Less than a week total turn-around time! Not sure if the cost is uniform for all jobs like mine, but the machining of the barrel, brake and priority mail back was well under $100.00. I stuffed a Franklin in the chamber, nonetheless. The old adage that you get what you pay for sure rang true!

When I opened the well packed box, my first thought was OMG, he ported my barrel instead of making me a brake! :o Not what I wanted! I took it out into better light and that's when I could barely make out the seam. This is top shelf workmanship and as always, not over-priced! Image Did I mention, the brake is perfectly timed!

You be the judge:

First picture was in the shade, right after I opened it, with my phone. Second was in sunlight and better camera.

I asked him if this service was a "honey do" one off or if he was interested in doing more jobs like it and he said "I'll take all the work I can get."

I am already boxing up another barrel for the same work.

He hooked me up with a brake for my 264win mag Blackhole Weaponry barrel that was flawless and had it in hand in 3 days from ordering

I thought I covered that in my first post. You should email him for the details. His contact information link is in that first post. He's quick to respond to emails. You do need to dismount the barrel and send it in. Before you ask, I don't know is he makes and sells threaded end caps. There's a thread somewhere, that members have found sources for them however.
