The Brockman Muzzle Brake - Left: Ports Open, Right: Ports Closed
Available Installed with BLUE FINISH or FRENCH GRAY (F.Gray Pictured Above)
Noise Control - "Will it hurt my ears
when I'm hunting?". All muzzle brakes redirect gas
and sound to the sides rather than forward... which makes
them all louder than shooting a gun with no muzzle brake.
The Brockman Brake has the option of opening and closing
the gas ports... Essentially turning the brake on or off
without removing it. You can open the ports and enjoy the
recoil reduction while working up loads, sighting in, and
practicing. Then, just close the ports if you want to go
hunting with normal muzzle noise*. Same accuracy, same
Locked-In Precision - Muzzle Brakes are not like flash suppressors that can be just screwed on and off. Accuracy and recoil reduction require that they have very close and even clearance with the bullet (measured in thousandths). The Brockman Brake is precision threaded and rigidly installed with 11º target crown on center with the bore. Only the outer sleeve moves to open and close ports.
Physical Requirements - Calibers from .224 to .338, minimum muzzle diameter of .730". Maximum .875". The brake itself is .875" in diameter and our installation bevels at the rear to transition nicely to your barrel diameter.

Our Precision Installation ProcessOur selection of muzzle brakes represents the the traditional as well as the exotic but always with the emphasis on accuracy, functionality, and value. When accuracy is a priority, installation requires proper centering and alignment. And, even though the crown of the barrel is out of sight at the rear of the brake, it is extremely critical to the accuracy of the firearm after the installation. Note: This is a custom machining and Gunsmithing service that we do in batches to keep the cost down... delivery is approximately 4-6 weeks.
On-Center Threaded Brakes - Our muzzle brakes are all threaded on-center with the bore. This assures that the exit hole is aligned with the bullet path and that ignition gases affect the bullet equally on all sides... which is the best condition for accuracy. There is no slop in our threads... this is a thread-to-fit process for best alignment.
C-T-C 11º Target Crown - After the muzzle is threaded and before the brake is installed, we cut the crown. Our crowning system aligns the muzzle and the chamber between centers (C-T-C) to assure that a perfect crown is cut. This crown is inspected with a loupe to be sure it is perfect before the muzzle brake is installed.
No-Stress Mounting - Our muzzle brake threads are snug with no wobble... again to assure alignment and accuracy. Beyond this, we install them with a zero-torque method to be sure no stress is introduced into the barrel.
