A big brown truck dropped off my Bushmaster, with the newly installed Wilson muzzle brake. They did a great job. The color match is near perfect. While the KKF brake is closer to the A2 flashhider, the Wilson brake has a unique beauty of her own. I had a tough time deciding between the two, and if you ask me, you can't go wrong with either. I'll give you all a field assessment after I shoot this weekend.

Real beauts!! Wish I could get my red 'x's to look that good.

I would have a tough time deciding between those red x's also. You can't go wrong with anyone of them, though.

I had to copy and paste the image URLs to a new window to see the pics. I guess your host doesn't like you to link files. It looks very good, almost like the real deal. I hate the look of the post-ban muzzle. Let us know how it performs!

Are you guys serious? You see red X's? How come I'm seeing the pics right now? Can someone explain to me what's going on. I've been having a hell of a time posting pics since I don't use Photopoint anymore. Or does it have something to do with the new AR15.com board?

Anyone? Woody, help me out here.

So,Aviator, your not seeing the pics? I'm looking at the page right now, and I'm seeing my pics. I swear, I'm not on [smoke]

You're seeing the pics because they are in your browser's cache. I think your Yahoo host doesn't allow image linking. Maybe someone else here can host the pics? My host doesn't allow linking either or I would do it. Sorry.

Just copy & paste the img properties and open up directly. Worked for me.

Three weeks. Wilson uses a black colored peel washer now, but I specifically asked for the stainless one. More authentic looking. Nice bunch of people over there.

It sure looks legal enough. Is it an aproved break? Did you shoot that rifle before the break was installed? And, of course, how much? Looks great!

part + installation + S&H = $91.95 Supposably, it has BATF approval. But, we all know how those things can change.

I disagree. I have a AK-74 type brake on my SKS, and it defiantly lessens muzzle climb on rapid semi-auto fire. Plus, a brake will protect the crown. People say rifles are less accurate with them also, if they are, you would have to get out a caliper to convince me. All I need is "combat" type accuracy anyway. I have bolt action rifles for prairie dogs at 500m. Plus, IMHO, a bare muzzle on a AR looks, well... incomplete.

No difference. Yes, recoil is light, and so is muzzle climb: but it's still there.

Yeah, I have 2000+ rounds through it so far. I've never scoped the rifle, so I'm not sure what type of extreme accuracy it's capable of. But, that isn't why I bought it in the first place. It will do 3" to 4" inch groups off a bench at 100yds with most of the surplus ammo that I buy. I doubt the groups will open up with the brake installed. I'm sure it will be louder, however. That's ok, it's a good "loud". [:)]

Raf, are you saying that a AR with a muzzle brake is not capable of 2moa or less ??? Chill out man, the guy just got his baby back and your pissin on it !! He likes it and is proud to show it off, and it looks cool to me. After all, I dont remember him saying that he did this to gain accuracy anyway. not flaming you, just an observation. [):)]

It, can, and will shoot better than 2-3moa, and I have shot better. But, I am the weakest link. What I listed was about average for ammo I use. Won't win any matches, but I sure have a lot of fun. [:)] Any 3-4moa rifle is good enough for any "battle" scenario, if that's your kind of thing. The AK has dropped a good number of men. I'm glad your M1 shoots as well as it does, but that type of accuracy isn't necessarly needed. To each there own. Peace.

I thought that flash suppressors hurt accuracy, not muzzle brakes! i remember reading somewhere that muzzle brakes do not adversly affect the accuracy of a weapon. how the hell should i know lib

Looks pretty good. It's just really to bad it's come to this. How much did they charge?
