Why doesn't your brake have top ports to prevent muzzle rise?

Top ports on other brakes are to combat muzzle rise that occurs from their brakes not being completely effective in recoil reduction. Our brakes don’t require top ports because there isn’t enough recoil to create muzzle flip. See my post on muzzle brakes vs compensators for a more detailed...Read More »


Will it cause corrosion around the barrel?

How much recoil reduction can I expect?

A LOT!!! Seriously though, Recoil is a subjective matter. Many manufacturers and magazines have tried to quantify recoil reduction. Are they talking perceived recoil, recoil velocity, recoil energy, or some combination of all?

1. Newtons 3rd law, When the bullet starts moving it forces the firearm to start moving in the opposite...Read More »
