Least Obnoxious Muzzle Break?

63 posts in this topic

First 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!

You primarily put a brake on for function, I have a SJC titan brake that will loosen your fillings but you can triple tap like it was a 22. If someone shooting next to you is offended by your " loud " brake the should take up bird watching or something similarly quiet.

I believe Murphy already plans on making muzzle brakes illegal, just like flash hiders! If you do get one, don't spend too much for it if you plan on taking it to the range. Buy stock in a company that makes unthreaded barrels and thread protectors with the leftover funds! :mad:

This i going to screw a lot of people. Me included. Most of my builds are 14.5 :angry:

THAT is why he's doing it! I am in the same boat! Don't go buying a new 16 inch non-threaded replacement barrel just yet since he will not stop there!

This state is...shouldn't take me hours of research to find a muzzle attachment that may or may not be considered legal...

I would hold off to see what the near future brings before doing ANYTHING!

My 16'' upper is already on the way...screw him he can try and take it....anyway back on topic. Assuming muzzle breaks will not become illegal...

Anyone know if a pinned thread protector could be taken off and replaced with a muzzle break? I would assume no but I wonder if it's been done.

Why replace the whole upper? The barrel is cheaper! With regards to the thread protector, it all depends if it was just pinned or pinned and welded! Just pinned, get your dremmel and grind the pin down to where you can take off the protector!

it can be removed if done properly. Ive had pinned muzzle brakes removed and replaced

Please lets not go through the whole sky is falling thing again ..... Just get what you want that is currently legal now, don't worry about what may or may not happen in the future.

No sky is falling my friend! There are those that say buy as many AR s as you can now! There are those who are in a panic looking to sell everything black!

I choose to do nothing right now until I know all the facts!

Not replacing, building my first AR15 :B:):

I hear yah, but if there was a happy medium between function & muzzle blast / noise level that's what I would be looking for. My go to was going to be the Carlson Comp Mini but I'm still hesitant because of the whole "pinky test". Says it's post ban compliant but...  

I am looking forward to it...back to the topic.

What about linear compensators? Their function is to direct blast forward correct? How does it benefit the shooter and does the blast come back at the shooters face even though its projected forward? @Zeke mentioned the Warden, too expensive for my current build but would that be considered a linear comp?

Warden and that type of product goes on the brake device. As needed

Interesting, just watched some videos. I take it it's legal in NJ? Pardon my ignorance, but would the primary function be to mitigate muzzle blast away from the shooter? Or are there any other benefits using this system such as decreased muzzle flip?

Screw all this nonsense. Do what you want. I’m not changing jack. I am also not going out and buying as many ARs as I can afford.
Past, present and future. Explain to me why the hell you need dozens of ARs? You can only shoot one at a time. Buy one or two of your fav or the best of the best. If it ever comes to confiscate, they will take all and you lose a ton of money. If you hide one or many, where you going to shoot them?
This whole thing is crazy. 🤪

      Hi all. 
       
      Initially I wanted to install 14x1mm LH AK-74 style muzzle break made by Chris Butler at AK-USA. But my biggest concern is that this muzzle device will make the rifle louder (when I shoot indoors). AK-74 style brakes put a lot of gas out to the sides, they direct so much concussive force sideways towards other people, so it feels more intense.
       
      To make the long story short. I'm looking for one of the modern brakes that directs gas forward, to avoid anything with larger lateral ports.
       
      The original 4 piece Bulgarian is considered a flash hider. I'd also avoid anything with a thread.
       
      Do any of the following linear brakes look g2g to you guys:
       
      1. http://www.ultimatearmsgear.com/Ultimate-Arms-Gear-Concussion-Overpressure/dp/B015GE5HUC
       
      2. https://www.custommuzzlebrakes.com/#!/Tactical-Low-Concussion-Rifle-Muzzle-Brake/p/35179679/category=7058691 (choose M14-1 LH 7.62mm AK47)
       
      3. http://www.griffinarmament.com/Griffin-Armament-QD-Blast-Shield-p/gaqdbs.htm
      Are brake shields like this one (the Griffin Armament QD Blast Shield) even legal in NJ?
       
      Would appreciate any suggestions!
      Thanks.

      What 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?

      I'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?
