CP Convertible ON/OFF Muzzle Brake

CP convertible muzzle brake stainlessWe love the recoil reduction we get from muzzle brakes, but we don’t like the added noise and blast. And we’d rather not blow dust and dirt at our neighbors on the firing line. Chris Spera (Cowpuncher) of CP Muzzlebrakes has the answer to that–a brake that can be “turned off” with a simple twist of the brake housing. When the ports on the sleeve are aligned with the ports on inner section tube it works like any other muzzle brake. When the outer sleeve is turned 36°, this blocks the ports on the tube. That shuts off the brake, dramatically reducing the noise/blast it produces. CP Muzzlebrakes offers an unique and very precisely-machined product. Each brake is custom-fitted to the rifle, and Chris builds both straight and tapered versions, for $180.00 (blued or black finish). Stainless brakes, either straight or tapered, are $220.00.

Jody Calhoun of SavageShooters.com tested one of the brakes, and gave it high marks: “The effect it had on recoil was very noticeable. [My 30-06] performed very much like a medium load .308. Needless to say, I was impressed. I also liked the way it has the detent ball that allows you to go from “ON” to “OFF” in a split second without even looking. The brake stayed in position until I moved it. Operation is smooth with no slack between parts. It does have that typical muzzle brake flash and noise. Fortunately, its ports are angled in a much better fashion than most other brakes, making it less offensive[.]”
