Just to update this thread. I emailed Ross about a 4 port brake for my first 450B build and he replied within an hour on a Saturday. Then I PayPal'd him the money Sunday and he told me he'd be dropping it off at the post office that day.

I haven't got it yet, but have no concerns. And that email still works.

The email works and so do the Ross brakes! Just don't let anyone stand beside it when you shoot...

One final question - whats the best way to time the Ross brake? Crush washer? Shims? I've got a SS Barrel, plan on leaving the brake SS as well, so SS crush washer (shims) would make the most sense.

You can buy a crush washer or shim pack or what some of us are fond of using, which is PTFE plumbers tape, built up on the threads until the brake meets your preferred tightness. An added bonus to using the plumbers tape is that it effectively seals the threads. If you clean with the brake on, solvents that come out the end ahead of the patch, can wick back down the threads. Depending upon which solvents you use, they can attack the metal when left there over time. Crush washers and shims will not stop thin solvents and I'm thinking like copper removing or any of the water based ones. In a perfect world, you would remove the brake before cleaning or at least every once in a while to clean those threads off. We're not perfect however. ;) A roll of plumbers tape is cheap and will do a lot of brake remounts.

I use heavy duty Teflon tape. (Grey in color). Have been using it for almost 8 years and never had a problem.
