Default muzzle brake for .50AE Desert Eagle?

This may be a long shot, but here it goes...

Does anyone here have a muzzle break for their .50AE DE? If so, is it worth the cost?

The recoil is manageable, but what gets me is the muzzle flip. It causes spent casings to hit me in the forehead often enough, that I'm considering the muzzle brake from Magnum Research to (hopefully) tame it and stop the casings from hitting me in the face.

Friend of mine just got his back from the factory. Range report to come this weekend (or maybe next, not sure yet).

I too have this problem with empty cases hitting me in the face. Really hurts.

I sent my barrel to Magna-Port (long before this muzzle break was offered from Magnum Research). The ports from Magna-Port are not very big. Two on either side of the barrel.

I can't say it did much for muzzle rise. I'll be eagerly awaiting the range report for this muzzle break.

I've yet to actually experience this. MRI claims that this is caused by improper handling of the firearm during firing. Apparently if you don't have a firm grasp of the grip the handgun torques in such a way that it will eject into your forehead. All of my casings fly over my right shoulder unless I'm shooting low power ammo, then they go over my head.

I had a muzzle brake on my .44 DE xix. It reduced the recoil to about that of a .45. In my opinion, it's soooo worth it.

Yeah, blame the shooter.

Where would those cases go if you happened to be shooting left-handed?

If I was shooting left-handed they'd still go off to my right?

My handgun is always directly in front of my face when I shoot.

You gleefully buy a .50 Deagle, and complain about the recoil?

Deagle: Desert+Eagle= Deagle

Muzzle flip/rise is all about the recoil. You need to crank up the forearm beast mode for better control.

Ha!...I know...just hazing you a bit, since "Deagle" came from the gamer crowd playing MW, Counter Strike, etc. who typically had no experience using firearms or...wait for it...real steel, hahaha.

I discovered something on a (somewhat)recent outing with my DE...

I brought it out to Angeles to shoot at the steel on the pistol side. It was a chilly morning, so I put on my shooting gloves to keep my hands warm. Upon sending the first round downrange, I immediately realize that I have a much better grip, and much better control of the big .50 during the firing cycle. Brass was no longer hitting me in the forehead from the (formerly)extreme muzzle flip.

I have to say: a pair of shooting gloves is a much cheaper solution than sending the gun back to Magnum Research to install a muzzle brake. Now, I can use that money to buy more ammo instead.

Just for the kool factor would buy it, but majority of there breaks do help especially with a load like that.

Yes, it is the first accessory I bought for the pistol shortly after acquiring it.

Isn't the recoil the fun part of the DE50?

I see no reason to reduce the recoil in mine....

...for those not reading the whole thread, and just responding to my OP...to be clear, I have decided NOT to get the muzzle brake/compensator. Hogue grips + shooting gloves = excellent control.

I just received a .50 AE barrel with factory installed muzzle break I ordered through the Magnum Research website for my CA-legal Mark XIX that originally came only with the 6" .44 barrel.
I'm going to be shooting it this weekend hopefully with the new .50 AE barrel. I didnt have a .50 barrel to start with, so I figured I'd just order it the way I wanted the first time and shell out the extra cash since I was going to buy a .50 ae barrel either way. I bought this weapon in April and havent found 1 person with a Mark XIX compatable .50 barrel used (that wasnt sold already by the time I got to them), so regardless I know I was going to have to shell out the cash for new priced .50 barrel.
