Best NJ Legal Muzzle BrakesHi there, I was wondering what muzzle brakes/comps everyone is using. I have a Battle Comp on one of my rifles and a KVP on an "other." I'm looking for an option to pin on a 14.5" barrel to exceed 16'. I was hoping for something milder than the Battle Comp, which exhibits too much concussion for my tastes. A few people recommended the VG6 Gamma, but I would need the EX for length, and it looks to be discontinued. The Epsilon has the length but VG6 said it's not NJ legal. The Bravo Comp looks good, but on some old threads here it wasn't clear if it was GTG from a legal standpoint. Please let me know what you would recommended for shooting in an indoor range. Thanks.
Least Obnoxious Muzzle Break?
roxxer69 posted a topic in Firearm Hobby / Sport DiscussionFirst post on the forum, be gentle... Building my first NJ compliant AR15. I am aware that muzzle breaks / comps & the word "quiet" do not go together, however I would like to find a muzzle break / comp that does not annoy the shit out of me or the person next to me in terms of noise and muzzle blast. (Yes, I know it's a gun range and things go boom man up etc...) But I am a sucker for being considerate. Scouring the internet, I have been led to the Battle Comp (Expensive), Troy Claymore, Carlson Comp Mini (Illegal?) as my choices for reasonable breaks. Would any of you kind, fellow oppressed New Jerseyans enlighten me on what muzzle break you use that isn't totally obnoxious? Thanks!
Ideal NJ Legal Muzzle Device?
PK90 posted a topic in GunsmithingWhat would be your ideal NJ legal muzzle device? Length? Diameter? Placement of holes and/or slots? Open or closed end? Do you want it to reduce recoil, muzzle rise or just look evil? I am contemplating designing and having one manufactured. It will be long enough to make 14.5" barrels 16", and the threads will be 1/2" x 28 TPI. The sound and flash will not be controlled. It will be tested and found to NOT suppress the flash and it will be advertised that way to satisfy NJ laws. Thoughts?
Pinned vs. Pinned+Welded Muzzle Devices
SgtToadette posted a topic in New Firearms Owners CornerI'm pretty sure I missed the memo on this one. I see a bunch of mentions that people have their muzzle devices both pinned and welded to their barrels for the purpose of making their semi-auto rifles compliant. Is simply having the muzzle device pinned not enough? I find that strange since we don't need to have our stocks welded and pinning seems to be the acceptable means by which 14 inch barrels with 2 inch muzzle devices are not considered SBRs in free states. For context, the reason I ask is because I've finalized my decision for what AR upper to slap on my lower. The upper will have a 14 inch barrel with a pinned compensator when it arrives on my doorstep. Would I need to have additional work done so I'm not lugging around an Assault Weapons as per NJ State law? Is there some statute that defines what permanently affixed means or is welding just done as overkill to remove all doubt?
