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.

    Ok this brake is worth every cent!
    Put this brake on my Howa 1500 Varmit 20in in 308, had this barrel cut down to 16.5in 5yrs ago. And with this brake I have groups at 200yrds shooting 1/2in and better at times. With the same loads before I was getting 1in-1.25 at 200yrds. The only thing I had to do different with this brake was I had to turn the end nut all the way in towards the barrel to start my tests. Then rotate out away, I started at number 2 and worked backwards 1, 9, 8. That's where I found the sweet spot with mine.

    My group at 800yds with factory brake was 8-10"...I switched over to this break and group is consistently 3" with Hndy Match 300PRC
    I decided to put this on 3 other rifles after that. Could not be happier with the results

    I put this on my custom 6 Arc. I took a Gen 1 off of it for a different rifle, when I put Gen 2 on ,checked zero. Shot about a 3/8 group, twisted the tuner a few times and got a 5 shot single hole at 100 yards. I will like the spring much better than the tension screws
