Muzzle Brakes or Flash Hiders anyone?
I have had the opportunity to make aquaintance with a long time benchrest shooter whose career took a southward spiral, and he has now started his life over. He has befun an apprenticeship with a precision machine shop, and his first project has been a few different muzzle brakes and flash hiders. I've ordered a T&E model that I'll report back on once it is received.
In the meantime, in an effort to help the guy out (I believe he is actually living in the shop where he works) I offered to try and help him out through Trotac if I could, and now I'm testing the waters to see if I can sell some muzzle attachments.
Here are the pics of what he's done so far...
This is the "pointy things" flash hider. It looks like pretty brutal, and should also do a good job of flash suppression I would think. Obviously it is intended for AR's and the like.
These are three of his brake designs. I ordered the one in the middle which has the large expansion chamber as well as the top ports which are designed to minimize or even eliminate muzzle rise. Mine will be going onto my 3 gun AR.
Now for the good part! If there is interest, I can get these for $45 FOR A LIMITED TIME. The last real brake I bought cost me over $100, and was identical to the one on the left in that picture of the brakes.
If you're interested, I need to know ASAP. He is really just getting into production mode with these, and if demand spikes, that will not be the price for long. It looks like a great product, I'm anxious to get mine in. Report to follow...
