Ordered one of these breaks 2 weeks ago. Very excited to hit the range and see how it performs compared to my Surefire War Comp. 

I'm interested to know how these work out for you. I'm also in the market for a qd brake.

this works pretty well too!

 

vg6 epsilon 

 


 

 

 

yes ... but for a duty rifle or shooting inside the VG6 cage device is an absolute necessity if you are going to use the Epsilon.

After trying a few muzzle brakes and finding them either too blasty or creating too much muzzle depression, I settled on the Frank Proctor brake. More blast than a flash suppressor but less than most brakes, with pretty good performance. https://www.recoilweb.com/frank-proctors-new-muzzle-device-67177.html

Unfortunately hard to find today, seems Troy no longer makes it. Did get good reviews in this comparison of various brakes https://www.thetruthaboutguns.com/ar-15-muzzle-brake-shootout-3/

I have one of those ... wish I had bought several before they stopped making it.

it's a really good balance of brake and flash hiding.

 

At some point I'm planning to add on an Indian creek design blast forward device to my proctor and see how it does.  The ICD blast forward does slightly reduce the effectiveness of the brakes that I have it on, but I regularly have people ask me if it's a suppressor because it makes the rifle so much quieter (to the people behind me).  RO's tend to appreciate it very much.

 

if you like the proctor device, there is a similar one made by venom-defense.  It's smaller and the brake expansion chambers are different, but concept is the same and you can get it with a linear compensator.  I bought one but the threads on the linear comp aren't true so I have a few messages in to venom to get the mount replaced.
