Strike Industries Cookie Cutter Comp

Strike Industries recently debuted their new Cookie Cutter Comp that they’re claiming is the best muzzle brake on the market for AR pistols and Short Barrel Rifles (SBR). It may look cute, but Strike Industries says straight up that you shouldn’t expect this to help at all with flash suppression, because it won’t. Shooting this next to other shooters on the line? They’re in for a bit of side concussion surpise. But according to Strike Industries it reduces recoil quite a lot. At least they’re honest with the drawbacks of muzzle brakes. They retail for $59.95 at There’s no videos of it in action yet, however Strike Industries did post a video of a prototype of the Cookie Cutter Comp a while back, check it out below.


Based on the theory, Law of action and reaction, Strike Industries created a large reflecting area to enlarge great “reaction” to eliminate recoil force.

The COOKIE CUTTER COMP is, hands down, the Best muzzle brake for Short Barrel Rifles (SBR’s) and AR-Pistols. It is NOT a flash suppressor. There will be side concussion so the shooter needs to be aware of surrounding personnel.

It is designed as a single chamber muzzle break with a large surface area, which minimizes recoil substantially and at the same time compensates muzzle rise.
Additionally the CC-COMP also happens to make a great glass breaker!

Package include
– 1 x Cookie Cutter Comp.

-Large Single Gas Port expels gas on both right and left sides.
-Heavy-duty parkerized finished steel construction
-Unique functional design.

    I don’t like how that video starts by saying “This brake is perfect for AR/AK pistol [sic], SBR. and other HIGH POWER RIFLE” – emphasis added. What does that even mean? in fact, the whole write up in that video looks like it was done by a 3rd grade child.

    • BillC

      I’m not bad mouthing the product, or even the company, but horrible grammar and phrasing. Also, this brake looks like it works well, and they admit that the concussion will be brutal, so it probably shouldn’t be called “the best”. SBRs are handier for indoor and confined spaces, usually with a buddy nearby, so flash suppression and concussion reduction are probably more paramount (than huge brake baffles).

  • Cymond

    It seems like a pistol/SBR would be the LAST place you’d want to put a giant concussion-boosting brake.
    Also, did anyone else think that LEO-shooter went through some of the motions of his training a little too quickly (checking the chamber, scanning the area)?

    • seans

      Looks like a malfunction check. You can do those pretty quick.

      • JumpIf NotZero

        Chamber clear check, into a reload. It’s not as bad as some here would make it out to be. The only real problem is that mags don’t always drop free, and they don’t always flip free either.

        The larger issue to me is the habitual scan and assess. He turns his head, but doesn’t actually look. It’s in his training to swivel his head, but not actually identify what he is seeing, it’s too fast for that.

        • Michel_T

          Maybe they need to take the extra 2 minutes and put up some targets…

    • Rusty Shackleford

      Yep. AN AR15 pistol/SBR has almost no recoil as it is, all this does is increase the flash and concussion for a firearm that was MEANT to be used in close quarters.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      That’s what happens when you give police a Magpul DVD and all the free ammo they could want.

      Still better than the police that mount their optics backwards, or practically can’t reload an AR at all.

      • Well I’ve never met an officer who put a sight on backwards and believe me we didn’t get all the free ammo we wanted. Those of us on the SRU team got more ammo but not as much as we needed.

    • He’s just going through the motions. I’ve seen some guys who were pretty darn fast.

  • 3331

    IMO any muzzle brake comparison is worthless if it doesn’t include the JP Recoil Eliminator…

    • Dukke1ine

      Thank you. It is the norm over here…

  • JohnnyBGood

    I bought a TYPE89 comp from them once… I could scratch the finish off with my fingernail… Lemons happen and finish treatment can be picky so I was more than willing to give them a break. However, I’ve tried to contact them and I’ve never heard back from them. Guess I’ll try again today, but I already found a different comp to go with.

  • CaptainSlaughterboard

    So,when will the pizza cutter comp be released?

  • 30Thirty

    Add a big old cheese grater and a longer barrel… sure there will be less recoil!

  • John

    It might just be me, but Strike Industries kinda strikes (no pun intended) me as a US version of the Mako Group/Fab defense. Both sell a lot of unique and non-conventional accessories

    • Zachary marrs

      Ugh, fab defense, and I had nearly forgotten about them and their glock condoms

    • Ergo

      the mako group’s stuff gets made in Israel. The last product i bought from Strike Industries was made in Taiwan.

  • 1leggeddog

    It’s huge and ugly ill give it that.

    how about those shooting next to you?

    • hkryan

      They won’t stay there very long!

      • JumpIf NotZero


        Personally I could give less that two craps about other shooters.

        The real issue with brakes/comp is in houses, vehicles, confined spaces. You can blast yourself pretty decently. For example, if you shoot near glass, you might be getting glass in your face. Even coming up to a barricade if you don’t know it’s going to happen you can surprise yourself after the shot.

  • Zachary marrs

    Hmmm, I like how they are using full length rails so it doesn’t look to stupid. And has to be the most tacticool mag change I’ve ever seen

    • Scott Vulcan Bailey Jr

      Tacti-useless more like it.

  • iksnilol

    I thought SBRs had little recoil to begin with due to all the unburnt powder?

    • Zachary marrs

      But they don’t give you a concussion like this one can!

    • Steve Truffer

      Not necessarily. The mass of unburnt powder is more applicable to larger calibers. More efficient calibers have the issue of burning the powder, but need the proper length to make use of all the resulting gas. So you have huge concussion and outgassing, and increased recoil due to the lighter weight.

  • lbeacham

    Better to use suppressor. All benefits, no downside after cost. With SBR’s, who cares about cost anyway?

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Dirt. That’s definitely a downside to a suppressor. Needing to regulate the gas system, in order to keep the same cyclic rate / reliability. Extra weight. State laws. Range or competition rules. Extra length. Mount and suppressor as extra equipment to check. POA/POI shift between suppressed and not. None of this has to so with cost.

      I almost never shoot my rifles unsuppressed anymore, but I’m well aware of the actual pros and cons.

      • lbeacham

        I admit my response was a one-size-fits-all attempt at introducing the advantages of a suppressor vs. a brake. With a short barrel, the noise and blast is ridiculous, but I am more noise sensitive than some. My 10″ sbr didn’t like my attempt at valve-regulating the gas and interfered with using multiple loads and bullet weights. Mine ran fine with the std. carbine spring/buffer. Felt improvement and additional confidence came with using the vltor a5 buffer set-up. Since I used the suppressor on my 16” ar’s, I found the SBR with the titanium can felt great. Of course, shorter and lighter is better. I use the YHM QD, moving between AR and bolt gun use with one can and never shoot without the can in place. State laws, I failed to consider. The long wait time for NF sucks. I’d have bought many more than the several cans I use, including .22lr, if the buying urge and delivery was as easy as buying the firearm. I tried many brakes, never warmed too them.

  • Scott Vulcan Bailey Jr

    Inefficient reload. You want to reload while staying on target and only moving your non-firing hand to the mag and back, so it gives the enemy the appearance that you’re not reloading. This guy is focusing more on fancy flipping than getting that mag. ALL of my mags ALWAYS fall out when I hit the mag release. If they don’t you just adjust the mag release, which takes 10 seconds.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Lol at flipping and lol at “all my mags always drop free”

      Promise you they won’t when you need them to.

      Anyone that claims their mags will always drop free, doesn’t shoot enough to know that’s not the case. Go shoot in the rain, get down on the ground, get some dirt on the gun and mags. They won’t drop free. How many times have your mags dropped free in a vehicle? From urban prone? Supine? Prone under a vehicle or barricade? … Yea…

      I’ve shot in poor weather and in unconventional positions enough to know that mags don’t drop free. Always strip IMO, so to me, your comments look just like people flipping their mags out of the way. Except that I would consider flipping to be slightly more reliable than hopes and dreams that they’ll always drop free.

  • gunslinger

    wait, can you have a break and a flash suppressor that are the best? or is it a tradeoff one for the other?

    • Steve Truffer

      BRAKE= acts as a “brake” for rearward recoil. To do this, they take the gas at the muzzle and give it material to deflect off of. This means the flash is spread out, making it more visible.
      Flash suppressor = mixes the burning gas with air more effectively to damp out the brightest of the flash.
      One or the other, or get a can.

  • Mystick

    I don’t know about using muzzle brakes as kinetic devices… like for “glass breaking”. Sure, the muzzle brake itself will be fine, but it’s attached to your barrel, which will take 100% of the mechanical stress. Just seems like a good way to mess up a firearm, even if you are only breaking “glass”.
