Bolt on muzzle break

Has anyone tried the bolt on breaks from Kahntrol Solutions? Or have any input on them?!?

Re: Bolt on muzzle break

Interesting concept. Looks like there is plenty of openings in the brake so blowing off wouldn't be a problem. Not the best looking but could be very functional.

I once was at the range when a guy shot a 505 Gibbs with a newly installed threaded on brake. It didn't have many openings in the body and it blew off with the first shot! I found it in the berm, 110 yds away, a few weeks later. The threads were not very deep on the barrel or brake. The brake blew off without damaging either the barrel or the brake! We theorized the volume of gasses over came the brake and bulged it then launched it.

Get one and report back to us!

I have one on my 300 RUM, it is amazing. I love it and it really tames the beast, my 9 year old shoots it with no problems.

If I got one of these for my .308, could it be used on a smaller caliber with the same barrel diameter? Sorry if this is a dumb question, just might be switching to a 7 or 6.5mm shortly. Thanks for sharing this.

I ask them the same thing and they said yes but you would like to have the bore as close as you can to the bullets diameter. It will work though, I can't imagine it would make a huge difference.
