LANTAC is on a roll! Not too long ago, LANTAC introduced a Dragon muzzle brake variant that included the GEMTECH QD Lugs. Now they have officially introduced a collaboration with SilencerCo that is a LANTAC Dragon muzzle brake with an integrated ASR Quick Mount System. The fact that LANTAC is working with Suppressor manufacturers to make muzzle brakes that are compatible with their popular suppressors is awesome. It means you can continue to use one of the best muzzle brakes on the market instead of being locked into using whatever the suppressor manufacturer gives you. Check out the information and pictures below.

LANTAC DGN556B-ASR™ Dragon® Advanced Muzzle Brake with SilencerCo™ ASR Quick Mount Suppressor Adapter. The DGN556B-ASR™ is precision machined, hardened to 48Rc and nitride finished for enhanced corrosion resistance. It features our patented gas handling system that reduces muzzle rise and recoil to zero, meaning that the only recoil felt by the shooter is from the movement of the carrier and buffer within the buffer tube. Its unique Short Energy Pulse system reduces length of recoil so that repeating shot energy cannot overlap and knock the shooter off target. Full auto fire is possible with massively reduced recoil and muzzle climb, meaning that all shots fall on target. With the addition of the SilencerCo ASR quick mount system it is now possible to mount the SilencerCo Saker, Omega Suppressors and the Blast Shield.

Comes with appropriate shim set for timimg the brake / mount. X2 .34mm, X3 .22mm, X3 .11mm, X4 .075mm & x1 2mm Washer.

I recently started following a group on social media called [NERD] which stands for Next Evolution Research and Design. The name really caught my attention as I know a lot of us consider ourselves gun nerds. As you can imagine, these guys are long time industry guys with lots of shooting experience, etc. A couple of things that really got my interest peaked is their new line of 9mm Barrels and 9mm Muzzle Brakes which you can see below.

NERD Next Evolution Research and Design

 

[NERD] The Ward – 9mm AR Barrel

NERD 9mm AR Barrel 2

NERD 9mm AR Barrel 3

The Ward is ideal for sustained, accurate firing in submachine guns, short barreled rifles, or compact pistol caliber carbine builds where precision is paramount.  The Ward features [NERD] Ring Radial Fluting which gives increased surface exchange for heat dissipation during prolonged firing in full auto or semi auto operation.  Despite the increased surface area and rapid heat dissipation, barrel harmonic changes are nonexistent during extensive testing.  The barrel itself is finished off in a QPQ – LifeJacketcoating. This is a multi step coating process resulting in a very uniform consistent nitride layer on all BrainTrust barrels.  [NERD] BrainTrust barrels are hand inspected and test fired for quality control.  Each barrel is individually serialized and date coded using the established Heckler & Koch (HK) method for reference.   Lastly, each barrel comes with a Certificate of Authenticity matching that serialized barrel and the date it leaves our office, signed by [NERD] founders, ensuring this product meets our standards and is worthy of your time and hard earned money.

Specs:
Name: The Ward
Length: 12.5” 9mm AR Barrel
Profile: Ring Radial
Twist: 1/10 Twist RH
Thread Pitch: 1/2x28mm
Material: 4150
Finish: QPQ – Lifejacket- Forsaken Black
Weight: 1.628 lbs

[NERD] NC NANO 9mm Brake

NERD NC NANO 9mm brake

The NC NANO Brake features a single chamber designed to maximize the effectiveness of the comp in a 9mm sized package, while keeping the overall length of the gun to a minimum.  The muzzle of the NC NANO was sculpted with the [NERD] Compliance Cut for those who decide to act a fool but don’t deserve to eat a bullet just yet…

The NC NANO Brake is made from 4150 steel and is parkerized for durability.  The NC NANO comes in two thread pitches: 1/2×28 and 1/2×36.  weight is .115 pounds.

**Press Release**

Griffin Armament is proud to announce the “Make Silencers Great Again Promotion” Effective immediately every silencer* shipping from Griffin’s manufacturing floor to its Dealers and Distributors will contain two $100 coupons which can be mailed to Griffins address in exchange for store credit on their website.  Boxes containing coupons will be sealed with a gold label.

“Sales are down unnecessarily”, said Evan Green business development manager at Griffin Armament. “When the markets have been rallying and jobs are being produced, consumer misunderstanding of the legislative process and the Hearing Protection Act, is hurting an otherwise stable industry. Many people who want to buy are sitting on discretionary spending in the hopes that HPA will soon pass. The entire industry has come to a very similar conclusion that it will be quite a while until HPA is able to pass if at all despite almost unanimous support. People not buying right now is only further delaying them from enjoying silencers. It just doesn’t make any sense and this shouldn’t have happened.  Unfortunately a lot of miss information was flying around and nobody in the industry was trying to educate consumers on how long it actually takes to get a bill to pass, what percentage of bills pass, that the legislative process usually takes hundreds of days etc. This bill in some form has been presented to congress since 2015 and this congressional session is closing in a few months, so it looks like it will be rolling to another year.  Griffin is just as hopeful as everyone else for the HPA. However having a realistic viewpoint on it is critical to the survival of the silencer industry and the Americans who work hard to move it forward.  The ‘Make Silencers Great Again’ promotion is the most we can do as a company to try to encourage spending right now.” Evan continued. “It’s honestly an amazing time to be a buyer.  I remember when I was younger and was spending my money on an OPS INC can and promotions didn’t exist in the market. You could barely even get a dealer to handle the sale for you. Muzzle devices had to be purchased separately from the silencer, etc. I remember having to help my local class 3 dealer to understand the paperwork because he did so few transactions. But times have changed and there are plenty of dealers on the market selling products at great prices and walking the customer through the purchase quickly while keeping them informed. This program is also a great way to let consumers know that we appreciate them, we’ve been wanting to so something like this for a while.”

(CINCINNATI, OH) – Faxon Firearms, incessant innovators in the firearms industry, is pleased to announce the release of two new MuzzLok® muzzle devices, the GUNNER 3-Port Muzzle Brake and FLAME Tri Prong Flash Hider.  Available for order today, the new muzzle devices expand upon Faxon’s originally invented MuzzLok® system which has included the LOUDMOUTH single-port brakes. MuzzLok® muzzle devices do not require crush washers to mount and time a device.

The GUNNER and FLAME are duty-ready in any condition.  Both muzzle devices are manufactured from gun-barrel quality steel and QPQ salt bath nitride finished to match our barrels, maximize durability, and increase corrosion resistance.

The GUNNER 3-Port Muzzle Brake was designed by Faxon’s competition shooting staff to blend usability, versatility, and recoil reduction. For all barrel lengths, the GUNNER reduces recoil by more than 50%. Changing objectives, the FLAME flash hider virtually eliminates secondary ignitions at the muzzle, making muzzle flash nearly nonexistent.

“We are thrilled to be expanding the MuzzLok® line of products with the GUNNER and FLAME devices. Both meet shooters’ objectives for versatility and recoil or flash reduction,” said Nathanial Schueth, Director of Sales & Product Development. “The GUNNER and FLAME for 5.56 are just the first of many more devices to come using MuzzLok® technology.”

The two muzzle devices are designed for employment on 5.56 NATO / .223 Remington weapon systems. Both feature concentric 1/2×28 TPI threads for matching up to any commonly threaded barrel. Retail for both is set at $59.99, including the MuzzLok® nut. The GUNNER and FLAME are available directly from Faxon and shipping soon to Faxon’s dealer network.

Manufactured to the highest quality standards and featuring a patent pending design, the MECHFORCE Enforcer Muzzle Brake offers advanced muzzle gas management that reduce recoil and muzzle rise. Its unique shape is a creation from a collaboration project joined by professional industrial designer, mechanical engineer and material metallurgist. Full finite element analysis and extensive field testing have been done on the finalized geometry to fine tune gas ejection ports to the best of minimizing recoil and muzzle rise. The unique cone shape design is the first of kind to be used on the muzzle brakes that can project waste shock wave and sound wave to the front and side ways, therefore minimizing the noise level received by the shooter.
