Finally got my stamp and picked up "The Beast" for some sighting in. I was a little concerned at first that without the TRG-42 Muzzle Brake that extended shooting sessions would be a thing of the past but "The Beast" tamed the recoil almost as well as the OEM brake. Of course it weighs a ton, so that could account for some of it. As far as it's suppression performance, I was very pleased. Pretty much made the TRG hearing safe without protection, but of course I have permanent residual ringing so that may be biased by the observer. As far as cosmetics, the suppressor is pretty "plain Jane" but it makes up for it in functionality. At the price that I paid for a suppressor that can handle the 338 LM, I am a happy camper.
