Product Preview: Precision Armament M11 Severe-Duty Muzzle Brake

posted on December 31, 2015

Providing tangible recoil reduction while minimizing muzzle rise and ground disturbance, the Precision Armament M11 Severe-Duty Muzzle Brake helps take the bite out of hard-kicking rifles. A symmetrical brake, the M11 uses three side baffles and two top baffles to redirect escaping gases laterally and upwardly, greatly reducing the amount of force pushing back into the shooter’s shoulder. CNC machined from stainless steel, the brake was engineered to minimize bullet flight disturbance, and the unit’s threads were machined during the same operation as its bore aperture, thus ensuring concentricity. Wrench flats on the top and bottom of the M11 allow for quick installation, and Precision Armament's Accu-Washer Muzzle Alignment System (sold separately) makes properly timing the brake a simple process. Designed to fit barrels with a 5/8x24 thread pattern, the M11 is available in four calibers: .264 (6.5 mm), .277 (6.8 mm), .308 (7.62 mm) and .338 (8.6 mm). Price: $120 ($25 for optional washer system). Contact: Precision Armament, (800) 724-3802;
