Yes it is and no it's not clocked, it's new and unfired and I tossed it on so it doesn't get lost in my sea of firearms parts.

Troy medieval muzzle brake.






Was supposed to go to the range today, but I don't think that's happening now. I'll post up how well it functions, and it's perceived loudness when I get out.

My absolute favorite brake, looks the part, bayonet compatible, well made, and effective. I even threw one on an AK74 5.56 build that I threaded 1/2-28.

Cool. There weren't many reviews on it. It was either this or one from Yankee hill. That one was $10 less, but the points were too aggressive. Didn't want to tear up stuff unnecessarily. I would have kept the birdcage, but its more evil. And i wasn't about to pay $30 for a thread protector.

So I went to the range today. The Troy medieval muzzle brake is pretty decent. It helps more with muzzle rise than the standard A2 bird cage, and the perceived loudness isn't that much greater. The recoil is about the same as the A2. There was a few others at the range with different muzzle brakes. They were all significantly more percussive. I don't know how much flash dispersion it provides since the range is pretty bright. I do have some photos of the small Flash that was able to be captured with the ambient light. For the $40 I paid I think it is a great option for a featureless build, but its probably not competition quality. Here's what flash I was able to capture.
I will say my barrel seemed hotter than with the A2. Not too sure if it's because of the ammo or the brake since the shooting was pretty mild.

I actually think the Troy Midevil brake is also considered a flash hider. Might
not be compatible for a featureless build. Somebody correct me tho if Im
wrong

Edit....
Looked it up and looks like they make a midevil flash hider and a
midevil muzzle brake that look pretty much the same. Lil confusing.

I saw that too when I was originally looking for a muzzle brake. The difference between the two that I can see is the brake has an opening just larger than the round, and the flash hikers opening is significantly larger. The only real differentiation between a muzzle brake and a flash hider that I can find is that the muzzle brake opening is just barely larger in the round whereas a flash hider is significantly larger than the round.

I like it a lot. Very minimal muzzle rise, and VERY loud! Ditched the Lantac Dragon for it. I'm also thinking about the Little Boy. I'm trying to get my rifle as short as legally possible. 👌
