He's supposed to send me one of these when he does another run.

IIRC from an old thread the minimum is 100. Maybe you and your connections can get that number down.

I think in the past, group buys were meant for guys to get a price break on an item, but for this particular item, I think we just need enough guys to commit just to place a minimum order. If you go to the product description, it says it's a minimum order non-stocked item.

Tony.
I'll give you a commitment for at least one, maybe two.

Why do you need to time it? is there some effect on muzzle rise or something?

delong is right. 100 pieces. I'm just waiting back to hear if there would be special pricing or if it's full retail.

Tony.

Not trying to thread jack but was starting to look at brakes from SF as well and was wondering why between the:

Flash Hider
Muzzle Brake
Warcomp Brake

Why doesn't everyone with that can use the warcomp not use them, and why don't i see very many review of the warcomp brake

I recently purchased a SF SPS300 and have been doing my brake research in the meantime. Plus is Schuster gas plug or SEI gas plug the way to go if I CAN the rifle.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I'd imagine it's because not everyone wants the flash signature, blast and extra noise that comes with a brake - even a hybrid brake/FS like the Warcomp. I've researched the warcomp and you're right. Not a lot out there.

Schuster plug. Why? Because it's not SEI.

The slots are spherical, so it has nothing to do with muzzle rise. They want the locking notch timed at bottom dead center, so it most likely is just to make attaching the shroud or suppressor easier to do. I don't have a blast deflector yet, to see if that makes sense.

If you put a can on the rifle, the Schuster adjustable plug is a good way to mediate back pressure and still ensure reliable cycling.

The Warcomp looks like a very promising muzzle device. A flash hider/compensator combination. If one was available for the M14, I would get it. Unfortunately, they only the flashider.

If folks are going to pay full price for a bulk purchase, I would see if they could thread the Warcomp in .595x32

Warcomp is relatively new. I run one on my LMT MWS, and Larue Obr 7.62. Same full flash hider characteristics with some help for muzzle rise. Not loud like a traditional brake of course. The flash hider is just that a flash hider nothing else. The brake is a full on brake with good recoil reduction.

Ended up picking up the warcomp 762 and warcomp 556 last night from optics planet. Plan on making the SFsps300 modular to my AR system and my socom 16. I love the 3 prong look

I heard it does. No hands on, but have seen some reviews. More recoil than a muzzle break/compensator. Also has slight downwards poi shift.

Yeah, I don't get why the sight isn't on the collar. Why reduce the sight radius?

probably for ease of design/manufacturing. They would have to make it with the dovetail for the front post, making it M14 specific. As it is, it fits on their adapter and therefore many other 7.62 rifles
