SilencerCo. MAAD Brake Now Available

One problem that has always seemed to plague people with QD suppressors is that you are stuck with the muzzle brake that is built into the QD.  SilencerCo. has their line of MAAD series of muzzle devices that attach to the MAAD system, such as a suppressor, flash hider, muzzle brakes.  The Saker series devices can also be used with the MAAD system.


Personally I would love to see more universal QD mounts.  Just like 1/2×28 is the thread standard for a 223/556 rifle, having a QD system become a standard would aid in the development of more QD muzzle devices that can be attached to the muzzle in the event that you are not using a suppressor.

Here is the info on the new MAAD Brake from SilencerCo.

The MAAD Brake, when combined with a MAAD mount, provides the user a fast attach and detach muzzle brake system to fit over existing SilencerCo muzzle devices.  The MAAD Brake also accepts the Silencerco MAAD Cap series of accessories giving the entire system the same modularity as the Saker series of sound suppressors without any NFA restrictions.  Includes MAAD Brake, MAAD Mount, Flat Front Cap, and a SilencerCo muzzle device (Trifecta Flash Hider or Trifecta Muzzle Brake).

    Whatever market they seem to be going after… I entirely do not understand.

    A brake for your flash hider or an extra flashy double brake, for $300.

    I’m a bit confused about the MAAD mounts & such. Will this brake mount over their Trifecta flash hider? Because if so, it might be nice to mount the brake in daylight when flash suppression isn’t needed, and then dismount after dusk.

  • So who got drunk and thought this was a good idea?

  • SafeArmsReview

    The idea is that you maximize the flash during night ops – its called posturing; making yourself look bigger than what you really are. The huge flashes will scare away threats, terrorists and those ignorant of common sense. The one downside is your night vision is reduced to ZERO because the huge flashes sere the optic nerve.

    Yea I don’t think I will be getting this anytime soon. Video was too vague on how this benefits the shooter.

      LOL and a real warrior will use this giant flash to target you unless you use them only when nobody is shooting back.

    After thinking about this for a while, the MAAD brake is GENIUS!

    See, there’s an ATF regulation somewhere that if a part is *only* used as a part of a silencer, then it IS a silencer part, and is regulated (restricted) as such. Yankee Hill Machine was forbidden from selling their QD suppressor mounts years ago because the mounts were only used for mounting suppressors. You may notice that most suppressor mounts serve double-duty as a flash hider, muzzle brake, compensator, etc.

    The MAAD brake means that all of those MAAD adapters are not suppressor parts, they are now multi-purpose muzzle adapters.
