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.

**NEW** BFD (Blast Forwarding Device) for ALL Muzzle Devices

Posted on October 3rd, 2016 by ar15news

This new product from Indian Creek Design is a two piece shield for virtually any muzzle device on the market. It uses a threaded collar that goes on before the muzzle device that the main body of the BFD (Blast Forwarding Device) screws onto.  This allows it to mount without attaching directly to any specific muzzle device and can be threaded on or off as needed. Check out the press release and pictures below. These are on sale now at www.indiancreekdesigninc.com

**Press Release**

Nampa, Idaho, September 26, 2016 – No longer will your shooting partners, entry team members, or your wife and kids shrink back from your invitation to go shoot your muzzle brake equipped rifle. The creative minds at Indian Creek Design, Inc (ICD) have solved one of shooting’s annoying dilemmas, eliminating the side and back blast from an effective muzzle brake, with an ingenious device that will have everyone at ranges and along firing lines across this great nation enjoying their chosen pastime more and getting better training in.

Muzzle brakes work by providing ports for the rapidly moving and expanding gasses that propel a bullet to hit against as they exit the end of a firearm barrel, re-directing those gasses to the sides and often back at the shooter to control recoil and offer quicker follow up shots and to control the muzzle so the impact of your previously fired shots can be seen via your optics to assess accuracy. They are also the bane of Range Officers and other people on the firing line, as well as tactical entry team members, etc, due to the back blast associated with their use.

“Muzzle brakes have been around for generations and they are invaluable, especially in target and tactical situations,” says Gary Adams, a spokesperson for ICD, “but people get sick of the blast associated with using a muzzle brake. This has led to a rise in sales of flash cans and linear compensators which only channel gasses forward but do nothing for muzzle rise and recoil. There are a few companies that make a system that couples a specific flash can with a specific muzzle brake but these are relatively expensive and up until now there has been no option for a consumer or law enforcement agency to use whichever muzzle brake they prefer and also run a blast forwarding device with that brake to defeat the blast and noise.

We at ICD have undertaken the task of engineering and perfecting a simple and elegant blast forwarding device, the ICD BFD, that will fit on many rifles and that works in conjunction with virtually any muzzle brake the shooter wants to use. The BFD, which adds only 2.6 ounces to the rifle, is stunningly simple in design, but so very effective that it will literally change the way shooters look at muzzle brakes and shooting in general. It is absolutely amazing how effective it is.”

icd-bfd-1

An added benefit in the BFD re-directing the muzzle blast is the re-direction of the ear drum shattering noise as well. Independent testing has proven that a muzzle brake causes up to a 10x increase in discharge sound level that hits the shooter and those in the surrounding area. The BFD corrals that damaging sound wave and sends it downrange. The perceived sound near the shooter is reduced dramatically. Despite this ability, the BFD is not an NFA controlled item, it is not a suppressor, and no special permissions are required to own or use it.

icd-bfd-1

The ICD BFD is available for any rifle with 1/2″ threaded muzzle devices (AR variants, etc) and for 5/8″ threaded devices such as on AR-10’s, etc. The BFD was extensively tested on various caliber rifles, up to and including a 7mm Remington Magnum bolt action rifle, with excellent results. Finished in a matte black MilSpec Type III hardcoat, Mr. Adams feels that this will quickly become a must have for the casual or avid shooter who wants muzzle control and doesn’t want to feel or subject others to the punishing back blast, and also for tactical operations and Law Enforcement use where the brake blast can be detrimental to operational success and the safety of the personnel involved. Every Range Officer in the world will want these on every rifle, they are that effective.

Instead of spending a large amount of money for a proprietary device that handcuffs equipment choices, departments, agencies, and civilian shooters can now add a moderately priced (MSRP $79.95) piece of American made kit to their existing platform and get a lot more, or rather a lot less, “BANG for their buck”!

The Fortis Muzzle Brake – for your 9MM

Posted on August 8th, 2016 by ar15news

While it seems like EVERYONE is building a 9mm AR right now, its taken AR component manufactures a little bit longer to jump on board as well. Thankfully Fortis Manufacturing has jumped in with a 9mm version of their extremely popular muzzle brake. What makes this such an awesome new product is not just that it looks pretty amazing but it also interfaces with the Fortis QD CONTROL blast shield (sold separately). This is sure to be a great performing muzzle device for your 9mm AR and is available in both 1/2×28 and 1/2×36 TPI which are the two most common thread patterns for 9mm AR barrels. Check out the information below, then head on over to www.FortisMfg.com and pick one up for yourself.

Fortis Mfg 9mm Muzzle Brake and CONTROL

The performance of the Fortis 556 Muzzle Brake is unmatched and the rise is non-existent, now replicated for your 9MM AR needs (also compatible with the Control Shield).

While the trend of 9MM AR’s continue to rise, we wanted to give those enthusiasts a product that carried the Fortis theme of design and functionality. So we took the 556 Muzzle Brake and utilized its aesthetics while getting the same performance for the 9MM that we do in our 556.

Available only in Nitride, in 1/2×28 and 1/2×36 TPI, now available for purchase on FortisMFG.com.

SLR Rifleworks Titanium Hybrid Linear Comp

Posted on July 20th, 2016 by ar15news

Looks like SLR Rifleworks will be introducing a new muzzle device soon. Over the past week or so they have leaked 3 photos showing a new product called the Titanium Hybrid Linear Comp. From the photos it appears to feature a solid Titanium body that, like other linear comps, is designed to force the concussion from each shot forward away from the shooter or anyone standing near that shooter. It also incorporates an end cap with ports. Not a ton of information is available just yet. For now all we can say is, it looks awesome and is something we will keep an eye out for. As soon as more info is available you can bet we’ll be sharing it here on AR15NEWS.

Serious Armorer’s Tools for Serious AR Builders

Posted on July 12th, 2016 by ar15news

As an avid AR owner/builder I have lots of experience piecing together rifles and the tools that are required to do that. I’ve used pretty much everything from the super cheap to pretty pricey when it comes to Armorer’s Tools. Most of your “inexpensive” Armorer’s Tools are, for the most part, made for the AR owner who will build a rifle once or twice a year and are prone to marring you rifle parts and tend to break during use. Some just flat out don’t work as advertised and are a “jack of all, master of none” type of design. I’m always looking out for the next must have armorer’s tools. Geissele Automatics did it with their Reaction Rod and now it looks like Fire 4 Effect has done it with their new F4E AWS (Armorer’s Wrench Set). 

Instead of one wrench that is supposed to do everything, the F4E AWS consists of 3 separate wrenches including a Barrel Nut Wrench, Castle Nut Wrench and Muzzle Device Wrench. This design made it so the portion of the wrench you are trying to use is positioned in the center with an extended handle on both ends of the wrench. On each of those handles are cutouts for use with a torque wrench and the suggested torque settings are actually etched on. The Castle Nut Wrench has an amazing design to it that doesn’t allow it to tear up your castle nut or buffer tube and the Barrel Nut Wrench features 9 points of contact that are all replaceable if one gets bent. Just seems like an extremely well thought out set of wrenches. Check out the pics, video and details below. 

NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT!

The Fire 4 Effect team is proud to announce the F4E Armorers Wrench Set! Developed by Master Gunsmith and former Army Marksmanship Unit NCOIC Matt Haidu the Armorers Wrench Set or AWS consists of a Barrel Wrench, Castle Nut Wrench and Muzzle Device Wrench.

Fire 4 Effect AWS Armorers Wrench Set

Manufactured from water jet cut mild steel that has been CNC milled, laser engraved with a custom cerakote finish the AWS is designed to provide a lifetime of use for the AR15 armorer. Each wrench has a life time warranty.

Key Features:
———
The Barrel Nut Wrench provides 9 points of contact on the barrel nut and features hardened steel roll pins which can be easily replaced by the individual armorer.
———
The Castle Nut Wrench uses recessed castle nut lugs for improved lock up during assembly and disassembly. The Castle Nut Wrench also doubles as a Receiver Extension / buffer tube wrench.
———
The Muzzle Device Wrench features a alignment groove to assist armorers while indexing muzzle devices.
———
Torque wrench attachment points have the corrected torque wrench calculation engraved on the Muzzle Device Wrench.
———
The Muzzle Device Wrench also features shoulder inlets to accommodate crush washer expansion.
———
All wrenches incorporate 2 handles for balanced manual torque application during assembly or reassembly.

PROUDLY MADE IN TEXAS!

Individual Wrench Price:
– Barrel Nut Wrench: $129.99
– Castle Nut Wrench: $119.99
– Muzzle Device Wrench: $79.99
– Complete AWS Price: $300.00

If you are a serious AR build, not just a once a year builder, you will definitely need to get your hands on a set of these awesome wrenches. Fire-4-Effect offers a 10% MIL/LE discount with appropriate credentials. You can order your AWS at www.fire-4-effect.com

CORE Rifle Systems Muzzle Brake

Phase 5 Weapon Systems recently completed their lineup of FATman and littleBOY Hex Brakes with the addition of the 9mm/7.62×39/6.8 model for both FATman (dual chamber) and littleBOY (single chamber) brakes with 1/2×36 threads. This now brings the total to 6 different muzzle brakes in the Hex Brake series including the 5.56/.223 with 1/2×28 threads & 7.62×51/.308/300BLK with 5/8×24 threads for FATman and littleBOY models as well.

Phase 5 littleBOY and FATman Hex Brakes 1**Not my photo but shows the size of these beasts.**

I have all except for the 9mm model right now and they are actually a very cool muzzle brake. They are on the larger side but at the same time they have a collar that covers a bit of the end of the barrel as you thread them on. They have a pretty stout look too. These are definitely work taking a look at if you’re in the market for a new muzzle device.
