Round muzzle brake vs 82a1 brake

Postby Gregginohio » Mon 09 Jun, 2014 11:58 am

any recoil difference in the 107 round brake vs the brick mb on the 82a1..kinda like the round style and wonder if it could ne used on the 82a1 with threaded barrel..got the cq model and the round brake would make it look cleaner and less bulky..gregg in ohio

Putting a suppressor on the M82A1 is a bad idea. Installing a suppressor will void your warranty and may also damage your rifle. Repair bills for (modified for suppressor) damaged Model 82A1 rifles often total over $1,500. The safe and effective use of a suppressor requires coordinated engineering of the rifle, the suppressor and the ammunition. Our M107A1 was designed specifically for this application.

Sorry for the misunderstanding. Typically when people ask that question they intend to put a suppressor on the Model 82A1.

They do have similar effects for reducing perceived recoil. And although they both have the same thread pitch, we have not tested the round M107A1 brake on any other rifles.

Has anyone tested the M107A1 brake on a M82A1? I would like to get rid of the arrow brake for a round one. No interest in suppressing the rifle.

I'm sure it would work just fine. Personally, I like the look of the arrow brake better.

That huge brick of a MB is pure Barrett, iconic bliss.
It works well. I would only switch it out if recoil were actually decreased.

I just tested two 50 caliber pistol barrel projects wanting to thread on a Barrett M107A’s muzzle brake, but an earlier inquiry of availability was a reply not selling the M107A muzzle brake. Past experience ordering different muzzle brake for my Barrett rifle, company wanted rifle sent back to assure proper install and operation. This time around, I set out machine cut a 2'' diameter stainless steel round bar using following ideas from the 82A1 muzzle brake’s rearward exhaust venting port angle combined with the M107A’s eight port round muzzle brake. Pistol fired on pistol rest without muzzle brake caused muzzle to recoil rearward into the air. Threaded on this newly machine cut muzzle brake when fired the barrel remained down range with few inches rearward recoil movement. Though, due to the short pistol barrels and angling the exhaust port so it vents exhaust gas away from nearby shooters, experienced much more muzzle blast that cause me to thread in place a titanium deflector blast shield at rear end of the muzzle brake like similar idea on AR50 rifle muzzle brake.

Lack of planning on your part does NOT constitute an emergency on mine.

When install this muzzle brake, will it void my warranty? No suppressor, just muzzle brake for the cool look.
