The NextGen EC Turner Brake By Cortina Precision
The NextGen EC Tuner has many of the same features as the Benchrest EC Tuner Brake with a few upgrades.
NextGen EC Tuner Similarities to the Benchrest
Both tuners have the elements that make them easy to install, reduce recoil, and optimize tuning. These features include a rear self-timing nut, a four-port recoil reduction design, and an easily adjustable tuner.
The NextGen EC Upgrades: Ports and Rear-Timing Nut
The differences start with the four ports. The Next Gen EC tuner has larger ports and more surface area to provide additional recoil mitigation. Additionally, the port angles are different. The first port is a hybrid with 25 degrees in the front and 90 degrees in the back, providing a gas curtain to shield the shooter. The other three ports have a 25-degree angle. This angle combination reduces blast fatigue while providing excellent recoil control.
Unlike the Benchrest, the rear-timing nut doesn't have tension screws. The Next Gen EC replaced the tension screw design with a spring. The rear-timing nut also has flats around it to help aid the shooter with grip when tuning it.
