I have been using PWS comps for years, never felt the need to try anything else.  Well, I got bit by the carhart farmer 3 gun gear race bug and decided to try a rolling thunder.  I have to say, "crap, I waited to long!"

What a difference.  I have not even tuned it yet and it is already better.  I plan on tuning it Monday.

uh oh, equipment race...  Looking forward to hearing how the RT comp works.
Hope is a lousy strategy, but sometimes it is good tactics. 

Plan B should not be Plan A twice as hard.

If you're happy and you know it, clap your... aw hell, never mind...

I would be interested in comparisons to Ross Schuler's brake . I like that he is local and priced fairly .

Frankly 100 dollars plus for a piece of metal 2 inches long and an inch or do around makes the machinist in me cringe but if the recoil reduction and muzzle control is that much better who am I to say.
About to make poor choices and regrettable decisions

The price of the Rolling Thunder is defiantly an Ouch... but the performance of the gun when the trigger is pulled... amazing.

Not only do you blow the ear drums off of the guys standing around you.  :o But the gun shoot's amazingly flat... on my gun, I can hammer doubles at 25yds and get 2" groups...

There are many good breaks, this one is loud, but works really well, It would be fun to do a comp comparison one day at the range.
I got a fever, and the only prescription is more 1911's .

Like the OP, I too shot the PWS FSC and really liked it.   Then I got the bug to try the SJC Titan.   Like the Rolling Thunder, the Titan is LOUD and large... almost to a fault.    And yet, it remains on my gun because it flat out works!  I love the thing.   The combination of the Titan, along with my barrel, which has an intermid gas system is perfect.   Now if I could just figure out the movement part of competitive shooting....   :o

Easy:  curl finger (as if to make a come-to-me motion), place it onto the trigger (that little piece of metal that makes your gun go bang), then pull it straight back (or in some people's case:  give it a vigorous yank).   :P

The price of comps is what kept me from doing it so dang long.  I am convinced that it was money well spent.  As 3 gun continues to evolve into sprints, every little second is going to count.  Money weil spent for sure.
