The Precision Armament M41Muzzle Brake may not have the “tactical” or “aggressive” look that many 308 AR rifle shooters seem to prefer today. What this muzzle brake does have to offer is proven performance in the field and that is what really matters. Most Precision Armament M41owners are shocked at how well this muzzle brake reduces felt recoil on the .308 Winchester and .300 Winchester Magnum calibers. You can read many reviews of the Precision Armament M41 muzzle brake at the “learn more” button below.
A few items of interest to note. This muzzle brake like many others needs to be timed to the barrel. That simply means the muzzle brake has a very specific horizontal orientation. This is so the blast goes away from the shooter and not towards the ground. Simply tightening the muzzle brake to the barrel will result in a random orientation. The use of a crush washer or Rocksett thread locker are the best methods to achieve proper orientation. The crush washer is the easiest method but least attractive. The Rocksett is the best solution. This is the same method used with muzzle brakes and flash hiders with silencers and sound suppressors. (see below) To avoid damaging the muzzle brake finish Precision Armament suggests using a spanner wrench which they offer. (see below)
Precision Armament M41 Severe Duty AR 308 Muzzle Brake
Three large axisymmetric baffles, each featuring five helical ports, redirect a massive volume of gas away from the bore axis in a counter-clockwise radial direction. This not only provides maximum recoil reduction but also reduces the torsional recoil force associated with heavy bullets and fast twist rates. High tolerance class-3 threads machined in same operation as bore aperture ensures perfect concentricity; this combined with a progressively decreasing baffle thickness and maximized venting area significantly reduce bullet flight disturbance resulting in less yaw, higher BC, and improved accuracy. Computer FEA optimized for maximum strength to weight ratio and impact survivability. Precision CNC machined from high strength HTSR 400-series stainless steel bar for superior heat and corrosion resistance. Offered in either an ultra wear resistant DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) matte black finish, or stainless steel in-the-white, matte finish.
This muzzle brake is designed to fit 5/8-24 threaded barrels and can also be modified by a qualified gunsmith to fit larger thread diameters (up to 3/4″ or 18mm).
Available in three calibers:
6.5mm / .264 Caliber (for use on rifles .22-.264 caliber)
7.62mm / .308 Caliber (for use on rifles .264-.308 caliber)
8.6mm / .338 Caliber (for use on rifles .308-.338 caliber)

******These are the brakes that we took to Industry day at the SHOT Show this year. The reviews were fantastic. The target dot on an AR with a red dot optic can be held on the target through rapid firing. As one media guy put it, “This is amazing, the sights just sit there!”******
These are threaded 5/8-24, 9/16-24, and M14-1 LH and bored for any caliber. For Custom threads / calibers Witt Machine an e-mail.
Below we will list some examples of the various Muzzle Brakes, Tactical Compensators and Flash Hiders for the Armalite AR10, DPMS LR-308 and other .308 Pattern AR rifles. If there’s anything I missed worthy of noting feel free to drop me a message.

SMITH ENTERPRISE .308 VORTEX FLASH HIDER
Smith Enterprise .308 VORTEX FLASH HIDER – This is the standard by which all other flash hiders are judged. Four, specially angled flutes hide nearly 100% muzzle flash, even during full-auto fire, by dissipating gas and retaining un-burned powder for increased residual burn. Constructed of the same 8620 bar stock steel used in the manufacture of AR-15/M16 bolts and carriers, then heat-treated to provide a high-strength core and tough, outer shell. Special, helix design helps align exiting barrel gas to improve accuracy with all bullet types. Streamlined unit reduces muzzle flash with four, 15° helical flutes. Provides Vortex technology for an AR-10.
SPECS: 8620 steel. Parkerized, black, matte finish. 5⁄8″-24 tpi. 2-11⁄16″ (6.8cm) long, .905″ (2.3cm) dia. 3.9 oz. (112g) weight. Fits Rem 700 Tactical and AR-10 in .308 Win.
Smith Enterprise .308 VORTEX FLASH HIDER
VLTOR VC-301 – Highly-efficient internal helical design uses ten precisely contoured longitudinal ports combined with a unique, cloverleaf-shaped exit port to trap unburned powder particles long enough for full burn and dissipation of hot combustion gasses. Muzzle flash cancels itself out to minimize shooter exposure during daytime and low-light situations. Also serves as a compensator by directing venting gasses to help reduce muzzle jump and improve shooter control for better shot placement. Precision machined from 4140 steel to stand up to rough tactical operations. 2-1/8″ overall length brings a 14½” barrel up to legal length for civilian use when flash suppressor is permanently pinned or welded in place.

BROWNELLS .308 TACTICAL FLASH SUPPRESSOR
Brownells .308 TACTICAL FLASH SUPPRESSOR – Low-profile, screw-on flash suppressor meets the needs of the most demanding tactical and competition shooters. Developed by Brownells’ in-house engineering team with plenty of input from the many dedicated shooters on our staff to give you a powerful flash suppressor that also helps reduce muzzle rise. Disperses combustion gases through five longitudinal vents to reduce the blinding, football-sized fireball of an unsuppressed rifle to a low-intensity golf ball sized burst. Greatly lowers the chance of muzzle flash giving away the operator’s position day or night, and helps preserve night vision. Vent walls are cut at an angle for maximum surface area to help cool gas and redirect it to counteract muzzle rise for fast follow-up shots. Solid underside prevents dust signature that can obscure the shooter’s view of the target or give away his position when shooting prone. Separate models available for rifles chambered in .223/5.56mm, .308/7.62mm, and 9mm. Unique “posthole digger” muzzle has cuts that form four chisel-points to provide a backup pain compliance weapon for hand-to-hand combat without creating unusually sharp projections that snag on other objects or cause unintentional injury during routine weapon handling. Precision machined from solid 4140 carbon steel bar stock and hardened to Rc 38-42 to resist blast erosion. Long-wearing, matte black oxide finish matches many factory barrel finishes.

Primary Weapons AR 308 .308 Shim Set
Primary Weapons AR 308 .308 Shim Set – Hardened steel shims ensure precise fit and correct alignment of flash suppressors, muzzle brakes, and compensators. Large (thick) shim allows 90° of rotation and can be used as a spacer for barrels not having a relief cut behind the threads. Medium shims add approximately 45° of rotation. Small shims used with large and medium shims provide smaller degrees of rotation for finely-tuned, critical alignment.
