Trying to get a sense of the 308 version...any owners care to comment on the recoil?

Wondering if I should be making plans to purchase a brake or suppressor.

Thanks!

You can find some footage here of me shooting it so you can see the recoil in action.

Thanks Ken!

That brake in the first video looks like it tames the kick pretty effectively. What make/model is that? Would it be possible to include that when shipping the rifle?

They call that one a TriDelta Muzzle Brake 5/8-24 Thread.  The only place I could find them was on ebay.  I had a previous customer said it was one of the best for recoil reduction.  And for the price its great.  But for a bullpup it is not so great.  On the top of the brake there are holes that allow for gas to escape to minimize muzzle rise.  What I found was that the gas is so close to the scope or optic that it would coat the lenses and make it dirty.  So I do not use this one any more.  I will however install any one you want as long as you send it to me to have it installed.  I actually only shoot these days with the standard bird cage.  And I do all my test firing with nothing on at all and I am fine at the end of the day.  No bruising at all.

Just buy you the SJC Titan in .308.  Far and away the best compensator/brake on the market hands down.  You won't regret it...trust me.

Wow, that looks impressive. Not terribly expensive either.
Regarding what Ken said about the dirtying of the optic lense...do you think that would be a problem with the SJC (on 20" barrel)?

nope...you'd be fine.  i have one...it's ridiculously effective.  no issues either with just a lock nut and no shims...i like to clock just slightly off center towards 1 o'clock as i'm a right hander.  shouldering the brake to the muzzle along with locktite isn't necessary in my opinion as i've never had issues.

How bad is the muzzle blast with the Titan?  I'm loathe to put a brake on my bullpups but if the sound isn't godawful it could be interesting.

With RFB it's fine...i shoot mostly indoors so I double up on the hearing protection.  I'd hate to be the guy next to me though.  Once you shoot with it...the hype is quickly realized.  It turns 308 into 223 with regard to recoil.

Beretta, any idea about the weight for the Titan? I can't seem to find specs on it.

Short and Sassy: That's always been my definition of a Bullpup.
