View Full Version : SRB and muzzle options

03-10-2006, 2:43 PM
If I were to attach a SRB (spring retaining bracket) to my lower, and go the gripless route, and if I don't care much for the increased noise of a muzzle brake (I'll always have hearing protection regardless....) - what options do I have?

Are there plain crowned muzzles I can attach to replace the flashhider, so I can maintain the proper barrel length?

You could get a non-threaded barrel or get a thread protector nut.

Also, there is no real reason to get a 14.5" or less barrel. You can just get a 16 or above, then you aren't obligated to attach anything.

I don't really get your quesiton.

Whoops..sorry, forgot to put a little background on my question.

I currently have a 16" midlength upper with the usual attached (threaded on) flash suppressor. One of my lowers has the grip + MagLok on the magazine. On my 2nd lower, I was thinking of attaching one of Bu-Bye's SRB, and making it a gripless build. However, if I use my midlength upper as it currently stands, it wouldn't be legal. I was just wondering what other options I could do, other than add a noisier muzzle brake onto it.

Here is the option I went with:


Reduces noise, recoil and even flash. Its Cali legal and looks great IMO.

Thanks, I'll add that to my midway shopping cart.

I don't know about you, but I've got to start consolidating my shopping. Between Brownell's and Midway, I have spent a ton of money on just shipping and handling, the past several months.

I have that brake on my mini and it works pretty good as a muzzle break too. It's not any noisier than a a2 flashhider.

Just get the Branson muzzle break. It is AS CLOSE as you can lawfully get to a flash hider. It's nearly identical to the A2 hider... so much so you can hardly tell the difference just by looking at it. As you can guess it does dampen the flash :D!

Del Ton has them: http://www.del-ton.com/detail.aspx?ID=1164

The "Izzy" brake from Bushmaster comes in a close second as well.
