RECOIL/RECOIL TABLE | PRICE

The Aquila Muzzle Brake (see photos to the right)

Aquila is one of the largest installers of muzzle brakes in the country.  We have developed a brake that will fill virtually every situation, from heavy to light barrels contours, chambered in from Magnums to Ultra Magnums.  We developed and engineered our own brakes that we consider to be one of the best available.  These brakes remove the recoil factor, allowing the shooter to concentrate on the shot. 

A secret about muzzle brakes, most brakes on the market work fine. After extensive testing, we have found that the radial holed brake performs considerably better than the baffle design.  We feel that our 4th generation brakes works great due to a unique interior design that is engineered to take full advantage of expanding gasses to reduce the recoil and not effect accuracy. The holes are angled forward so that the noise and blast is directed away from the shooter. Brake design is only half of the picture.

There are many factors to consider when installing a brake in order to maintain the integrity of the barrel, or the rifles accuracy. Simply threading the barrel and screwing on a brake can result in a rifle that will no longer hold a group or have a bullet strike inside the brake.

As machinist, we take careful consideration the hardness of the barrel, size of the barrel and thread pitch so that the bore at the muzzle is not distorted during the process.  After the brake is installed, the bore is carefully gauged to ensure that there is no distortion. All of our muzzle brake work is done on a lathe so that all of the components are true and concentric with the bore and the barrel is recrowned.

After we install our brake, there is no visible seam between the barrel and the brake.  The brake appears to be part of the barrel and is made from quality steel, to exact tolerances.

See Larke has to say about them.

I shot my 300 RUM this weekend after you built and installed the Muzzle Brake. What a difference! It was a pleasure to shoot and truthfully has less felt recoil now than a 30-06. I cannot believe the difference!

Thanks again for your quality work and quick turnaround.

Take Care,

Please Note:

In order to do this, we have to refinish the barreled action in one of our finishes. For $50.00, we will refinish the remaining steel components.  If it is stainless, we can either refrost it or polish the barreled action to it original look.

Brakes can be custom machined to fit specific needs.

Take a moment to study the recoil table below.

Recoil

Top of Page

Felt recoil depends on many factors other than what is listed on this table, such as the shape of the stock, semi-auto vs. bolt action and/or a good butt pad. If you have looked at many of these tables, you will notice that I used hot loads to calculate the recoil. Comfortable recoil is really up to the shooter, but as a rule of thumb, 0 to 13ft lbs is comfortable and does not cause flinch. From 14 to 15 ft lbs is probably tolerable and may cause discomfort if you're target shooting all day. Anything above 15ft lbs should have a brake to make the rifle bearable to shoot.

This table should only be used as a guide to assist you in determining what options you may want on your rifle.
