Gamma 556SL Muzzle Brake
Great looks, great performance, light weight -- everything you'd expect from a premium muzzle brake without breaking the bank.
Performance: ~65% recoil reduction. (in the top 10%-performing brakes)
When you step up to this price point, what changes?
First, the weight. This brake clocks in at 2.1 oz, barely more than your standard flash hider. Most other brakes on the market are 3 oz or more -- and located on the end of the barrel, you really feel the difference when shooting unsupported or doing mobility drills.
Second, the fit and finish. These are nice, you have to see it to believe it.
Third, there are specific benefits when running a 14.5" barrel. The brake will bring your overall length up to 16", if you pin and weld. The "SL" means "slim-line" -- the brake is slim enough that it'll pass through a .750 diameter gas block. So, if you ever decide to maintain or upgrade your gas block, you can leave your pinned brake right on the barrel. This is what that looks like.
Unless you're looking for some mega-light titanium brake, there is no reason, in our opinion, to spend any more than this. This brake will do it all.
