The U.S.-made brake, which is designed to reduce felt recoil, minimize muzzle climb and manage felt concussion, is currently manufactured for 5.56x45 mm NATO (.223 Rem.)-chambered firearms. It is threaded 1/2x28 TPI, comes with one crush washer and is Black Cat PVD-coated and serially numbered. Price: $180. Contact: Walker Defense Research, LLC; (602) 680-3310; walkerdr.com.
