Muzzle Brake for AR-15

Hey Guys,

I have a DPMS low pro classic with the 16" bull barrel. Even with the 40 grain bullets I'm getting a fair amount of muzzle jump. Can anyone reconmend a good break for this rifle to eliminate the muzzle jump so I can see the prairie dogs I plan on blowing up this summer.

I will be shooting prone mostly so maybe something that doesn't blow dust all over me and my gun would be helpful.

Holland's Quick Discharge is what I used on a 16" AR -- Works Great!

Re: Muzzle Brake for AR-15

I primarily shoot 3-Gun with my AR's. That said, on my 18" and 16" rifles, I went with the Triangle Shooting Sports Rolling Thunder as it is shoots scary flat.

I've tried:
- JP Recoil Eliminator
- JP Bennie Cooley Brake
- DPMS Miculek Brake
- Surefire Suppressor Adaptor

Other than the JP Recoil Eliminator which is huge and SUPER loud the TSS Rolling Thunder controls jump the best IMHO. The DPMS though is tough to beat if on a budget.
