The Badger Ordnance FTE Muzzle brake is a fairly popular design. The large expansion chambers provide excellent recoil reduction and a cool look. Easily indexed and removed from a rifle as needed, installation of the FTE brake requires a tenon with two shoulders and, in the case of calibers over 22 caliber, the brake must be bored at least .020″ over bore diameter. The brake shown here has a 5/8-24 thread, other threads are available.
