    just put one of these on my marlin and did a test run. big drop in recoil, sounds different also, and looks good. I like it!
    also the tool that comes with it makes it really easy to set up.

    What an amazing difference in recoil. It definitely tamed the beast. Accuracy was not effected if anything it made it more so because the recoil has been reduced. This is a no brainer device to add to your gun!

    Purchased the Brake for the Ruger made Marlin Trapper. The fit and finish is fantastic. Matches stock finish very well. Easy installation and great customer support and lightning fast shipping.

    I’ve heard conflicting theories on whether or not a Muzzle brake makes a difference for 45-70.
    That being said I absolutely notice the difference in recoil mitigation.

    Very pleased with the quality and fit of my new muzzle brake. Even more, customer service surpassed my expectations—fast shipping from Canada to Texas, great communication from the team at Spearhead and, even when I made a mistake in my order, they went above and beyond to help me fix my mistake and get it right. Thanks so much guys!

    Highly recommended. Order with confidence.

    Very satisfied, put it on my 16” Marin trapper and felt very comfortable shooting off hand on a 6×6 plate at 50yards. HSM 430gr+p, Grizzly 300gr+p, Barnes 300gr tsx, and BlackButterfly 576gr ACME all felt almost like cowboy action loads. The 405gr cowboy action factory load from HSM made a huge smoke cloud. Concussion from standing about 5 yards away with the hot stuff was pretty uncomfortable but that’s to be expected from any brake

    This made a very noticeable difference. A friend of mine has the same rifle with this brake, and we both say that this muzzle brake really tames down the beast! Before, it hurt to shoot Hornady Leverolution 325 grn, now its not bad. Great product!

    • spearheadmachine

      Thank you Joshua for your kind words and review, we are thrilled to hear the brake made the rifle enjoyable to shoot for you and your friend. Thank you for making us a part of your shooting excellence! Cheers.

    I put this on my new Marlin/Ruger 45-70 Trapper with a 16” barrel. It definitely helped the recoil, I was able to shoot 8 rounds with no shoulder pain. Before I put on the brake, I could feel the effects after just a couple of shots. However my neighbors reported that it also increased the boom. I wear ear muffs so I didn’t notice any increase in sound. The fit and finish of the brake was great and shipping to the US was fast (about 5 day). I would definitely recommend this product.
