APA Little Bastard Gen2 Muzzle Brake – review
So with my TAC and a threaded barrel I couldn't resist putting a brake on just for fun. The rifle itself is a dream to shoot but I have never had a brake on a rifle so I took the opportunity to check it out.
I went with the APA Little Bastard Gen2 being one of a few that Robert recommended and couldn't be happier. Not being a professional and not having much to compare it to, here is my humble review.
Before buying I called and talked to Jered (creator of the brake). He is a great guy and very willing to talk to and educate his customers. Ordering was a snap and I got it in a couple days. Being a first responder I did receive a discount. (Huge plus for his respect for first responders and military)
This brake goes on using a Jamb Nut and is very easy to install. Took longer to explain how to hold the rifle down to my wife than it did to install. 🙂
Product quality, fit and finish, and overall craftsmanship was as good as any product I've seen.
Range Report – Shooting with the brake showed definite reduction in recoil and there wasn't anyone sitting near me so I don't know what the annoyance factor was. I had the range master crank off a shot so I could see from a different angle. I intentionally stood off to the side to experience the concussion from the brake and it didn't seem too bad but I also run into burning buildings while everyone else is running out (firefighter saying). I did of course have about a 3 inch drop in POI but I was shooting terribly that day because it was raining and I was trying to beat the really bad weather. Went back to the range yesterday and shot multiple 1/2 to 1/4 inch groups at 100 yards (mostly 3 shot groups) with the best 5 shot group this rifle has shot so far. It would have been about 1/4 inch had I not rushed the 5th shot being entirely too excited.
I attached pictures and a video. Feel free to comment or ask about anything I missed as this is my first review of anything and I'm by no means a qualified product reviewer. I just felt like APA really treated me great and thought I should share.
I didn't really find any negatives about the brake.
