    But I've known to be wrong before. I shoot them, I don't keep up with with who chops and clops them.

    Well, one thing I know, the build will be more accurate (MOA) than my current skills will be able to achieve.

    Centurion website - We now have actual MK12 barrels. These barrels come from the same machines and the same people who make the military MK12 barrels for the Special Operations community.

    Nice! Timing these things is a royal PITA so be ready for that lol. Mine might be barely off (over-rotated by a degree or two) but I'm gonna live with it. I'm thinking its not a big deal, other than it messing with my OCD.

    Should shoot fine unsuppressed and not matter at all once the can's on I think?

    Call it precision timed for the individual shooters style.

    I should! I let my OCD get the best of me and tried to move the brake a degree counter-clockwise....ended up breaking the bond on the rocksett.

    Starting over. I'll probably run a dowel horizontally through the brake this time and confirm timing with a level.

    Don't use Rocksett just yet. Time it then get to the range. Notice the recoil and if it's to the left or right, you can then time the brake. I did this with a BattleComp and Triple Tap before, works well. Other than that though, I'm sure it'll work fine in perfect alignment too.

    Edit - actually, don't use any Rocksett until you have the can. That way should you decide to move to a flash hider, you won't have to break the Rocksett and risk loosening th barrel nut.... Which happened on one of my SR15's.

    Crap Jon, great idea but I read it too late. I just ended up fixing it. Took some boiling water, cleaned off the threads, hit it with acetone, used different shim combination, 4 drops of rocksett and got it tightened down. Confirmed with level. I'm going to give it til Monday then shoot it then I think.

    I'm sure it'll be just fine. I'm interested in the difference from the A2 to the Surefire brake on that rifle.

    ....which I'm uploading today, I swear!! And a reminder, though I'm sure you're aware, don't paint the brake. At most a very light dusting, but don't paint it like the rest of the rifle.

    Timing a muzzle break? What the heck is that? We're definitely reaching new levels of AR nerd-dom here.

    Lol you don't know what it is but it's nerdy? I'm kidding

    Timing a brake involves torquing down a device, to spec, and in an exact spot so that the gasses exit to compensate the normal 'up and to the right' recoil of the carbine. The threads per inch, combined with where the threads start, makes it necessary to use combinations of .003-.02" shims so the brake comes to a stop at 20-30ft lbs in the correct spot.
