Texas Precision Products Mosin Nagant Muzzle Brake

nagant-brake

Remember the Witt Machine Mosin Nagant Muzzle Brake we posted last month? Well I stumbled on another brake from Texas Precision Products. It’s a bit cheaper than the Witt Machine brake at $69.95 (versus $85 from Witt Machine). The Texas Presision Products brake weights 3.5 ounces and is made out of 6061 T-6 aircraft-grade aluminum. Just like with the Witt Machine brake no gunsmithing is required, it just twist on and is held in place with a few screws. They claim it reduces the Mosin Nagant recoil by around 45%. Currently they’re available for the 91/30 Mosin Nagant rifles with models for other Mosin Nagant rifle types in the works. Check out Texasprecisionproducts.com for more info. Check it out in action in the video below.

    …. weird, there was a comment here a little bit ago regarding Mosin-Nagant cycling.
    .
    FWIW, the bolt on my M38 only sticks with certain ammo. I bought 40 rounds of unknown foreign surplus (corrosive) with the rifle, and those stuck horribly. However, the sticky-bolt problems disappeared when I switched to Silver Bear ammo.
    .
    But it’s still very difficult to cock, just because of the heavy main spring. I suppose that a lighter mainspring could be installed. Most of us don’t need our Mosins to ignite hard primers while covered with mud in sub-zero temperatures.

      But an aluminum muzzle brake? Does that work OK? Because if it does, there are a lot of AR-15 owners who would love to shave off a little bit more weight.
      Or does it just work on a bolt-action because of the lower rate of fire and fewer rounds fired in a day?

      • Steve Truffer

        Probably both. Europeans buy aluminium suppressors because they’re light and they aren’t firing quickly. US suppressors are often steel and inconel to handle strings of full auto.

    PREVENTS INSTALL OF BAYONET. NYET! RIFLE IS GOOD. KOMRADE IS OF REMEMBER OF PURPOSE OF GUN, DA? KILL OF MANY NAZI.

    NO NEED OF PLASTIC STOCK NO NEED OF RUBBER WUSS PAD NO NEED OF “ALUMINUM” RIFLE IS OF WOOD AND STEEL

    RIFLE IS GOOD

  • Sludig

    Uh, not to call bullshit, but bullshit at the video anyways. He is totally pulling the nagant up to make the recoil seem worse. I believe the brake works as a brake but adding extra dramatic recoil is just shady.

    • Risky

      Yeah, especially that second shot in the beginning, it looks very exaggerated. Brakes are all well and good if you want to go to the trouble and expense… but I’ve never had any of my Mosins flip up like that.

    • dan

      Noticed that too, and of course that’s the without brake example they used. I too believe it probably works but c’mon now.

    • SM

      Agreed. Mosin’s don’t swing up like that. I bet the brake works though.

    • gregd

      I bought the brake for the AK, loose fitting junk and the bullets struck it thus wedging the break on the barrel threads, probably ruining the threads. Not much of a “precision” product. Now let’s see if I can get my money back. Screwed on the damage to the gun barrel threads I’m sure. Caveat emptor.

    Who cares about muzzle rise in a bolt action? except for semi autos who cares? This might just blind people in low light with all that flame coming up through the brake. What is the purpose of this thing?

      “What is the purpose of this thing?”
      To provide income for the manufacturer

    • Cymond

      I’ve actually seen a fair number of people complain about the Mosin-Nagant’s recoil, as if it was some kind of firebreathing magnum round.

  • DiverEngrSL17K

    If the Texas Precision products muzzle brake is actually made of anodized 6061 T-6 aluminum as stated in this article, that would explain the significant difference in cost versus the Witt Machine offering, which is made from machined 416 stainless steel with a Cerakote finish as an additional option. Also, the WM clamp-on brake typically uses at least six or more 6-32 machine screws ( up to ten in the SKS version )

  • Ron

    You are holding the gun further away from your body without the muzzle break on, and you hold the gun correct with the muzzle break on it, why is that?
