Default Any sub $50 muzzle brake with only holes all the way around?

Exactly as posted, I'm looking for a muzzle brake with nothing but holes all the way around for under $50. I know the battle comp is great, Rainier is great and a lot of people are loving all theirs, but I am just looking for a solid comp that has only holes around it. I just flat can't find one anywhere...

If you had holes all the way around it probably wouldn't work as well as it should.

Call parallax tactical they may have some more of these in stock

Sorry, 5.56/.223 is what I'm after. For an AR-15. Length doesn't really matter much, its just that I'm going for at least 2/3 around or completely around that I'm looking for. I don't shoot in the dirt and am not worried about kicking up a cloud or anything of that nature. I'm basically looking for the cheap version of a battle comp or something similar.

L4D very nice! That looks great. Probably true about keeping muzzle rise down. I just don't want to have to index it or anything. I guess thats what the crush washer is for though. Sigh....

Anyway, I'm actually liking the Spikes Dynacomp but its a bit more than I want to spend. Anybody have any luck with the Nordic brakes?

Indexing isn't that hard. mark the top of the muzzle device, mark the top of the barrel, align.

May just get a Rainier arms Comp and call it a day. I like the functionality and look. Somewhere between a Vortex and a PWS

It's actually priced very well too. way less than anything in its class. I went in there to get a FSB installed and ended up leaving with that installed as well for less than $80 (If i remember correctly).

Is this for a featureless build?
If so I would be careful with the Rainier Arms Comp although it is marketed as a brake or compensator the tines / prongs could get it classified as a Flash Suppressor in California if you are ever arrested and they decide to test it.

Bit out of your price range but Spikes has the "Tactical Dynacomp" which is a battlecomp style brake for about 75

bombadillo, I'm in the same boat. I've been looking for a less expensive Battle Comp for awhile. The least expensive I could find was the Dynacomp. But I see you're considering the Ranier Arms comp, which doesn't look much like a BC. So you also might consider the Smith Enterprise Good Iron for $45 at Parallax Tactical:



Or the Smith Enterprise Good Iron DC for $55:



Oops, C 1 beat me to it while I was writing my post.

I was getting some custom built muzzle devices for my featureless rifles from this company, and noticed they had a beautiful 223/5.56 brake just as you described for CHEAP ( 27 bucks )
Lightweight too, made from...

" Quality made here in the USA of 6061 T6 aircraft aluminum. "

SPECIFICATIONS:

Through Hole - 5/16"
Length - 2.5"
Width - .990 at biggest point and t threaded end is .677"
Thread - 1/2" - 28
Thread Length - 3/4"Finish - Harcoat Anodized MIL-A-8625F Type III / Color as ShownF



http://www.kineti-tech.com/muzzle-br...-threaded-2-5/


















They are actually Silencer manufacturer for the military, but just started a side company making brakes and other muzzle devices. I had them custom make me some muzzle devices for my featureless rifles, the workmanship was outstanding.

Read here on what they do.

http://www.kineti-tech.com/





The create your own shroud page is AWESOME, you get to pick from numerous fronts.....2 different length centers 4" or 6"....and numerous rears.

Nice find shadowofnight! I see they're pretty long (2.5"). Do you know how much they weigh? I eliminated many comp's because they weigh alot and will make an AR nose heavy because all that weight is way out at the tip of the barrel.

shadowofnight, I just called Kineti-Tech and they told me DO NOT use that muzzle break on a 5.56/.223!!!

Since it's made of aluminum, it won't hold up to the high pressures of a 5.56. It's made for stuff like pistols and .22's.

The guy I spoke to recommended their $35 steel 16 hole comp for the 5.56:



And FYI, the aluminum 40 hole comp weighs 1.5 oz., and the steel 16 hole comp weighs 4.6 oz.

I like the look of their brakes, I found 2 others on their page.
What bothers me is in their description they state:
Quote:
Design to redirect propellant gases with the effect of countering flash recoil and unwanted rising of the barrel during firing.
Which is a bad thing for classification of brakes for a featureless build.
Otherwise their designs appear to be brakes

Kineti-tech seems to be an interesting company. You could see how their making of suppressors are filtering into their brake business. Their aluminum one says specifically for 5.56 as well so I'm surprised they said not to use it on an AR. Did you actually call them on the phone or what did he say exactly??? Just curious now. This looks like a killer deal.

They should change their webpage then...

" For .22 and .223 "

But they are a great company, the custom stuff they do is amazing...and their customer service is even better.

I wanted one of these...








But I wanted it much shorter, and ALL black....to just act as something to cover the threaded end of the barrel ( Didnt want a brake, and had to remove the flash hider for featureless ) .

So they made me a shorty with the same front and rear machined sections but in all black. Just what I wanted for this particular upper, and I just finished it last night.

I only ordered their shrouds, I didnt want a brake...and had to ditch the flash hider. I didnt like any of the huge phoney cans on the market, I just wanted something small to cover the threads and just fit inside the full float handguard.

Yeah, I called them up. He asked what I was putting it on and I said an AR in 5.56. That's when he said NO! NOT RECOMMENDED!!! That's when he pointed out the 2 steel brakes/comps that they carried. He said DO NOT use an aluminum brake with an AR in 5.56 or .223.

I bet they would make one out of steel if requested.

Check out their video , they sure have some nice machines....this is an awesome video to watch ( Just skip past the cheesy first 30 seconds of the video, the rest is a thing of beauty )

I'd like to get the steel version in black of the 40 hole brake. That would be my ideal.

Let me know the price and weight if you get a quote. I wonder if they'd make a 1" or 1.5" version to keep the weight down.

The problem with Shrewd Muzzle Brakes is you have to bore them out to accept 5.56 (they come .220 nominal). They were designed for the seamless transition from barrel to comp look that you see on many bolt actions. So they're mean't for installation by a gunsmith who will bore them out to the proper caliber and turn them down to match the OD of the barrel.
