:tup:   Good gunsmith closest to Bonney lake....... And GO!
Is he still in business? I have one of his and am very happy.

He did some work for me about 8-10 years ago.  He was long in the tooth then.  Did good work, but he has to be at least 80 years old by now.  Hope he is doing well.
i just read his reviews and I'm not sure what to think, his eye sight was brought up.
“In common with”..... not so much!!

No that direction, but Ed La Pour in Bremerton does good work. Last I had him work on something, he was down his right hand man, and it took a while to get my stuff back. But he def know what he's doing.

I believe Mike is close to 85 and has done great work in the past. Recent reviews appear to be more mixed.

They do not make the gun "louder" as much as they change where it is loud so that it is more noticeable to the shooter and anyone standing to the sides/ just behind them.

That's what louder is.

Hence the term "louder"

I'm a big fan of the mbm 4 port beast brakes. That would be my recommendation. That or an apa Lil *censored* though I feel the beast is a more effective brake. Order one up and have a smith spin it on. As I stated before, Practice like you play. Part of the shooting drills I have my kids do involves putting in their ear protection. Its second nature to them and they don't even give it a second thought.

Karl, any experience running the titanium versions? Steel is tough to find.

I've got a titanium on my wsm. Work great and a good weight savings if you are weight concius .

Have been using brakes with tuneable top ports with good results.   Don’t want let cat out of the bag but expect more options in the marketplace soon.    :)

Mike was the best when we were all using his services back in the mid 80s if that tells ya anything.
