So glad you brought this up. I had a debate with those thinking aluminum muzzle brakes were unsafe. After seeing the mechanical properties, it made more sense to them.what are you compromising?
It is 7075 aluminum. As someone that makes products out of 7075... I know that it is 60% stronger than 6061. anyone that thinks of aluminum usually thinks of either 6061 or pot metal. 7075 is just slightly less strong than 1018 steel, but at half the weight. Then it’s also coated.
