Eliminate 60% to 80% of your rifle's recoil by using it's expanding gases to brake the rearward movement of almost any center fire rifle. Kick is produced in two different ways referred to as PRIMARY and SECONDARY recoil. The powder in your cartridge when ignited, expands violently, pushing the bullet through and out your barrel, but for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction, this is primary recoil. Unfortunately this is something we must all learn to live with because there is nothing we can do to reduce it or eliminate it. Fortunately this makes up for only a small percentage of your rifles kick. Secondary recoil is the big problem. This is the recoil created when those gases escape the end of your barrel and propel your rifle like a rocket into your shoulder. Fortunately this can be dealt with by using a muzzle brake. When the bullet leaves the end of the barrel and passes through the break, the back of the bullet acts like a valve and the gases are released at right angles to the barrel canceling each other out and eliminating the gas induced, or secondary recoil. The SCORE HIGH MUZZLE BRAKE has a row of ports on top to eliminate muzzle rise and no ports on the bottom so as not to raise dust off the ground or create shock waves off the ground.

All rifles are not the same.  They vary in design according to their application.  Just as using truck tires on a sports car gives poor handling so does using a hunting rifle style muzzle brake on an AR (automatic rifle) style rifle.  In order for each type of rifle to achieve the best possible performance we have found it necessary to make the  Score High Muzzle Brake in 3 different styles, The Hunter, The Tactical Bolt and The AR Brake.

 The expanding gas that creates recoil always forces the rifle backwards on the center line of the bore.

 On a hunting rifle the center of support or the center of the butt plate is significantly below the center of the bore and the greater that difference the more the muzzle of the rifle will rise when fired.  The Hunter  style Score High Muzzle Brake has four ports on each side, no ports on the bottom, and four smaller ports on top.  The escaping gases from the top ports hold the rifle’s muzzle down, offering the shooter the greatest control over the rifle. 

 Tactical bolt action rifles or rifles primarily fired from a bipod have a different need.  The downward thrust from the 4 top ports exerts pressure on the bipod causing a slight bounce during recoil.  The Tactical Bolt style Score High Muzzle Brake, with the top of the brake limited to 2 ports, perfectly balances the muzzle rise with the downward thrust for the best bipod optimizing shooting performance.

 Because  AR (Automatic Rifle) style rifles are supported so close to the center of the bore top ports actually drive the muzzle down robbing the shooter of total control.  The AR Brake style Score High Muzzle Brake has no ports on top or the bottom, it only has 4 large ports on each side, giving total control with both automatic and semi-automatic fire.


   The Hunter $159  Installed

 The Hunter, $159 installed.  This requires a gunsmith installation and includes threading and re-crowning the muzzle, custom fitting and finishing of the brake to match the current finish on the rifle.  Available in stainless or blued.

Thread size note:  Because of varying muzzle diameters, calibers and the position of front sights.  We use a large variety of thread sizes.  All are .400 long.  If, in the future  you plan to fit a suppressor to your  rifle you should choose the Tactical brake because the thread size for the Hunter brake will most likely not work.

 Tactical Bolt $195 installed

 The Tactical Bolt, $195.00 installed.  This requires a gunsmith installation and includes threading and re-crowning the muzzle, custom fitting and finishing of the brake to match the current finish on the rifle.  Available in stainless or blued.

Tactical Brake Thread size Note: Whenever possible we will use the same thread size as an
AR-15, (1/2 - 28 x .700) or AR-10, (5/8 - 24 x .700).  If you have any future desires to fit a suppressor to your rifle the thread size of the Tactical Bolt Muzzle Brake fits the broadest array of suppressors available on the market today.
