Kineti-Tech Muzzle Brake and Sound Directors

kineti-tech-muzzle-brake

Remember the Ferfrans CQB Modular Muzzle Brake we posted a few weeks back? Well there’s another muzzle brake with a similar concept on the market. Similar to the brake from Ferframs the Kineti-Tech Muzzle Brake includes a sleeve attachment that redirects the sound and concussion forward and away from the shooter. The Kineti-Tech attachment doesn’t feature the port holes like the Ferfrans brake attachment but Kineti-Tech does offer 5 different attachment styles to choose from. It’s made in the USA and retails for $46.95 over at Kineti-Tech.com.

This 2 piece design provides a great recoil reduction as well as A sound director. Redirects sound forward to greatly reduce the “at ear point blast” compared to with the sleeve removed. Design to redirect propellant gases with the effect of countering flash recoil and unwanted rising of the barrel during firing. Quality made here in the USA with A311 StressProof Steel. Item is 2.325″ and really sets off the look of the gun….very nice.

Outer threads are 13/16″ X 16

    That’s not a bad price to try out this concept. They sold at least one because of this blog post.

    I’d be interested in seeing the flash when using their flash suppressor base versus the brake base

    • Cymond

      The flash suppressor base is aluminum, so it’s only suitable for rimfire calibers that don’t really flash much in the first place.

  • http://www.thegunzone.com/556dw.html Daniel E. Watters

    How heavy is it?

    That 13/16-16? That’s a Chevy V8 oil filter thread.

      Surely just a strange coincidence… Surely. Now, no one ever mention this quirky little fact again. Ever.

    • Cymond

      I noticed that too, and was going to comment. However, the threads are at the base of the brake and I haven’t looked at an oil filter, will one fit over the large brake?
      And using an oil filter as an improvised silencer is obviously legal, but does anyone know about the legality of using one as a ‘solvent trap’? Seriously, I’m curious, are those ‘oil filter solvent traps’ that are all over eBay and Amazon legal to own & use?

      • iksnilol

        As long as you don’t shoot through them, then yes they are legal.

        • JoesphMama

          You f-ing people…

          • iksnilol

            I don’t get it. What did I do wrong?

            Some people do actually use them as solvent traps.

            his first post was “Surely just a strange coincidence… Surely. Now, no one ever mention this quirky little fact again. Ever.”

            and you guys kept talking about it………..

            i think im the only one that got it

  • Cornelius Carroll

    I’d be curious to know how effective it is in reducing noise at the shooter’s ear. I’ve always liked this concept in theory.

    • 360_AD

      Intuitively, it should be very effective as blast is directed forward and away from shooter.

      • iksnilol

        Shouldn’t it also increase rearward thrust? Because the gas is being pushed actively away from you.

        • 360_AD

          Yes, it would increase felt recoil… but, seriously, 5.56 recoil is nothing to be concerned about.

    • Greg

      I own one of the all aluminum versions. I think the Levang Muzzle break and Troy Claymore are more effective at directing the “blast” noise forward (based on my 22lr usage).
      Also the diameter of the break does not flow with the .920 barrel like the Levang does.

  • mirk

    price is right, but looks way too heavy.

    • 360_AD

      Weight at the end of the barrel can be a good thing.

  • 1leggeddog

    That’s gotta be one of the cheapest (in price) brake i’ve ever seen…

    Do they make em in .308? :D

  • Cymond

    Kineti Tech also makes a flash hider with a detachable shroud, but the flash hider is aluminum for rimfires only. Also, they don’t state what thread pitch is used for the shroud on the flash hider, so it may or may not be 13/16 like their other shrouds.

  • simon

    Simon says: readily convertible to a silencer. Go to jail!

    • Cymond

      So is a soda bottle, yet they’re still legal. It takes a little more to put together a case for an illegal suppressor. I think it must be ‘designed or intended’ to be a suppressor to get you into trouble.

  • Sam Schifo

    Heck, for the price, I’ll have to pick one of these up for myself.
