Muzzle Brakes
« on: December 02, 2016, 03:09:59 pm »
Which ones do you use?

Right now, the big three that a lot in my circle are talking about are the APA Little Bastart, the 419 Hellfire, and the PVA Mad Scientist.  Anyone have experience with these?

    I have a strike industries J-comp, cheap, effective, doesn't blind you in low light.

    it's a solid choice at around $30.

    I don't have any experience with those. I have a Silencerco Specwar brake that works quite nicely. It also allows our Omega suppressor to screw on to it. :)

     Standard birdcage works fine for me.  A2 style on AR's and Aimr/standard com-bloc "style" flash hiders for the AK.

    Strike industries isn't going to cut it. I eventually want to be able to do something like this. Notice that the rifle hardly seems to move. 

    That's a 10 inch plate moving 3mph at 530 yards.  30 rounds, 25 hits with 3 mag changes in 90 seconds.

    I think the Lantec dragon SJC Titan is the reigning king of TTAG's testing.

    All of these I see are for AR's.  I'm looking specifically for bolt gun. These may be acceptable for AR but I want to see what this does for accuracy. I see the SJC uses a crush washer.  That's not going to be acceptable.

    This was the only test I've seen for bolt guns.

    Same here.  I have the Specwar ASR brake mounted on two different 300 BLK rifles and it allows me to move my Omega back and forth between them quite easily.  It's also nice not having to worry about the suppressor working loose.
