New brake reduces .223 muzzle rise.
Brownells new 1/2"-28 thread, .22 caliber, Tactical Muzzle Brake solves a very real problem for shooters using the AR-15. No one associates the .223 with crushing recoil but any muzzle rise affects the second shot of a double tap; a standard occurrence in 3-Gun and multi-gun matches or when follow up shots are required on varmints.
The new Tactical Muzzle Brake features 16, oblong ports plus an expansion chamber for lots of "wall" area for powder gases to act against. All that surface area helps reduce recoil and muzzle rise to reduce sight recovery time between shots.
"Our designer came up with a couple of tricks to make the Tactical Muzzle Brake more effective and it worked great when we took it out to our Big Springs range," said Brownells President, Pete Brownell.
The Tactical Muzzle Brake is machined from solid 4140 carbon steel bar stock and hardened to Rc 38-42 to resist blast erosion. The finish is a long-wearing, matte, black oxide that blends well with most barrels. With ports all around, indexing is not needed and that makes installation easy.
