Sneak Peek: Rubber City Armory muzzle brake

I’m here at the Blue Ridge 3-gun match, a fun, challenging match over natural terrain at the Rockcastle Shoot Center near Bowling Green, Kentucky.

A company called Rubber City Armory (whose Director of Operations is none other than Chris Cerino, of Top Shot fame) is prototyping a new concept muzzle brake here where you can control the gas exhaust directions by plugging certain holes with screws.

This seems to make a lot of sense to me. For many AR-15 shooters, right handers will experience muzzle rise up and to the right (left-sided ejection port ARs up and to the left) and so you can insert screws in the lower left ports so the gas pushes in that direction to somewhat neutralize the recoil. Or you can insert screws however you see fit for your load and preferences.

Here are some never seen pics. In order: Top View, Bottom View, close up of the Top View with a view of the threaded holes. There will be eight holes. What do you think?

    I use Rubber city armory bolt carrier group on my Ar’s, that are black nitred treated, and they are great! This company means business!

    will carbon buildup eventually cement the screws into position? or is loctite required to prevent them shaking lose?

  • Sam Cadle (TFB)

    That is a beast of a 223 brake… What does it actually weigh?

  • EBR

    Doesn’t the EFFIN-A comp by Ares Armor employ this concept as well?

    • Laserbait

      Yep – but that’s more of a muzzle flip controlling device, than an actual brake.
