The PVA "Mad Scientist" was named by a group of customers who were highly impressed with the performance, fit and finish and ease of use that this brake afforded them. The ports are optimized for precision rifles up to 300 Rem Ultra Mag to reduce recoil, aid in precision and shootability, ease of install and do it all without directing muzzle blast back onto the shooter, optics and neighboring folks on the line. Brake performance has been tested by an independent lab with a recoil sled to show in excess of 40% total reduction of recoil travel, matching or exceeding the performance of other 1" diameter brakes... all without the back-blast associated from angled-port designs.
This version is for customers who want to seamlessly blend the high performance Mad Scientist directly into the barrel.
Here is one such customer post on an online group:
"...got to try the mad scientist brake ... from PVA. Words don't do this thing justice. I could spot my own shots at 100, 200, and 300 like I never pulled the trigger. I didn't know that was possible! Fantastic brake and I won't put anything else on my rifle, ever. All my friends shooting their AR15s want to see if you make one for that!"
