Royal Arms Firearms Products

    Royal Arms was established in 1984 to manufacture specialized equipment for breaching, hostage rescue and CQB. They are known as being the original inventor (and oldest manufacturer) of “Breaching Stand-Off Device”, “12 Gauge Breaching Shotgun” and a ton of other related products.

    They’ve since taken their experience and applied it to other firearms related products. The most interesting products that they were showcasing at SHOT were the drop-in aluminum replacement trigger for Glocks, Mega Muzzle Brake, Phantom Flash Hider, and their suppressors.


    The Custom Glock Trigger is machined from 6061 aluminum and incorporates the OEM Glock Trigger bar (which they polish up).


    The Mega Muzzle Brake is machined from 17-4 Stainless Steel and is pretty beefy. It is primarily marketed as a competition muzzle brake. It is 6.5″ long and finished in a QPQ salt bath. I wasn’t able to get a weight on it (and their site doesn’t list it) but it was pretty heavy.


    The “Phantom Flash Hider” was more my speed size-wise. It is also machined from 17-4 Stainless Steel and finished in a QPQ salt bath, but is a more reasonable 2.25″ in length.


    The suppressors are available for .22LR, .300 BLK, 5.56, and 6.5mm. They are available in 17-4 Stainless Steel and 6-4 Titanium, and MSRP from $299 to $999.

    I’m starting to enjoy checking out different muzzle devices to see how the different designs affect muzzle rise and/or flash, and am interested in running both of the devices that Royal Arms is manufacturing to see how they compare to the PWS FSC.
