There are three main types of muzzle devices for your weapon: flash suppressors/flash hiders, muzzle brakes, and compensators. AR-15s are getting more popular every day partially due to their low recoil and muzzle rise. With a good muzzle, brake recoil can be reduced even more and with a good compensator, muzzle rise significantly drops, almost vanishing. While muzzle flash cannot be completely eliminated, it can be significantly reduced with a quality flash hider. These muzzle devices are becoming increasingly more popular due to how easy they are to put on (5-10 minutes), their incredible efficiency, and because they make a good-looking gun.
About This Muzzle Device: The Armaspec Rifter Linear Muzzle Brake with blast shield is not your standard muzzle device. The chambers in this device cause the gas to travel for a longer period of time in the chamber. The result: reduced felt recoil with the sound moving forward and away from the user. This muzzle device has the added benefit of coming with a blast shield that minimizes the overall blast pattern. This muzzle device is innovative, effective, and will set a new standard for what to expect from muzzle devices.
Threading: 1/2x28 is a common thread type for muzzle devices made for .22 caliber projectiles, commonly found on AR-15 barrels chambered in .223 Wylde, 5.56 NATO, and including .224 Valkyrie.
Finish: Nitride - Nitriding is a process during manufacturing that diffuses nitrogen into the steel to make a case-hardened surface for improved resistance and strength. A Nitrided muzzle device typically has a glossy black appearance.
Chambers: This Muzzle Brake has 2 chambers to catch the expanding gasses and divert them to the sides of the shooter, reducing recoil and increasing controllability.
Ports: This Muzzle Device has 8 ports to compensate for the felt recoil and reduce muzzle climb by pushing the barrel back down, making the shooting experience feel flat without jumping off target.
