View Full Version : what muzzle devices "throw sound forward"?

12-05-2011, 5:44 PM
I'd like to make my rifle quieter "to me", so by throwing the sound forward, thereby not creating a "silencer".

I've heard the Noveske KX3 does this, but they call it a flash suppressor and I need a muzzle brake or compensator that does this.

It will be going on a featureless rifle.

A comp or muzzle break by definition has to divert gases rearward in order for it to work, I don't think you'll be able to find one, but someone else may know something I don't.

Try a Troy Claymore

Effin-A comp changes the sound in a pleasant way.

A thread cap will work for a featureless .

another vote for Levang , they do a great job with moving the blast out front , more of a stright back recoil impulse then others......i use them on 2 of my AR's

cool idea with the Troy, had no idea it was only $60. i'd been looking at those pricey battlecomps.

this thingy is kinda cool, but kinda expensive at the same time

Troy Claymore. Throws sound forward, makes it seem quieter than standard A2.

What you want is a Levang Linear Compensator.
I have one on a Mini-14 and it works great.
Available at Brownells (http://spinstage.http.internapcdn.net/Spinstage/userdocs/skus/p_231015022_1.jpg).

the troy claymore sounds like the ticket for my next featureless build.
Until this thread i didn't know there was a brake that didn't blast the eardrums off anyone standing next to you. sweet.

I think I'm going to switch to the troy from the battlecomp. I read so much praise for the thing and bought into the kool-aid and it really isnt that impressive at all. Probably sell my battlecomp
