Does anyone know if there is a compensator or brake on the market that you can order to fit specific diameter barrels that requires no barrel threading to attach? I envision something like this . . .


Notice that it is held on the barrel by three (or more) bolts.

If there was such a device would you purchase one?

Thanks, sorry, I knew that. I'm just really bad sometimes with checking my spelling on things like that.

If there was one like that, I'd sure buy it. As a matter of fact..it would be a good design to use to attach a cover/deflector over a Bushmaster mini-y comp, so you could shoot it at the range, and in competition too. Any machinists out there willing to make a few..???

Close, but I'm talking about providing a variety of sizes up to a 1" bull barrel.

Some folks have had their brakes attached with roll-pins, and the force of the gasses hitting the flats on the brake eventually sheered the roll-pins completely apart, launching the brake downrange. That's why most non-threaded brakes are attached using solid, hardened taper pins. -Troy

I see your point. So, if the clamp design wouldn't hold well enough, what about something similar to SOG Armory's six set screws? Set screws would seem to be very effective if you made small indentations in the barrel where the set screws would seat into.
