Hypertap® Muzzle Brake
Developed from the ground up and backed by knowledge gained from years of pushing the edge of muzzle device performance, the Hypertap muzzle brake delivers more than we’ve ever offered before. Our proprietary Hybrid Baffle Design combined with advanced Convergent-Divergent port geometry yields an unprecedented recoil reduction of over 84%*, nearly 10% higher than our M4-72, while maintaining modest 35-degree baffle angles and generous bore clearance. This results in exceptional safety, less gas blowback, better accuracy, and higher overall shooter comfort than any other device in its class. Fully tunable gas biasing allows the shooter to further reduce, or even eliminate, sight picture movement while firing. An integral universal timing nut eliminates the need for shims and allows quick field installation & removal using an adjustable wrench or the lightweight spanner tools (included). Additional features include: zero flash increase, compact lightweight design, a rugged skeletonized crown, cleaning friendly design, heat-treated stainless steel construction, a tough Ionbond® CrCN finish for superior durability and, as always, 100% Made in the USA.
Minimum recommended barrel length 14.5”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When selecting a caliber for one of our muzzle devices, the correct choice is based on your cartridge's actual bullet diameter. For example; if you have a .300 Win Mag, you would select a 7.62/.308 muzzle device. This is because the bullet for that cartridge is a .308" diameter. For a more detailed explanation and examples, check out our Caliber Fit Guide.
Before you begin drilling out any ports on your Hypertap, it is very important to decide if you even need to do so. With the Hypertap reducing such a high amount of recoil, there is often not enough force remaining to induce muzzle rise. Unnecessary drilling of the brake could result in overcompensation - actually driving the muzzle down after each shot. Additionally, excessive drilling can reduce the brake's overall recoil reduction rating. This is due to the internal gases no longer following their intended path of the convergent-divergent baffles. If after these considerations, you do decide to drill the Hypertap, we recommend starting with the front-most pilot holes and using a drill diameter smaller than the max diameter listed in the manual for your caliber.
The Slim Body Hypertap has an O.D. of 0.90", while the Standard Body has an O.D. of 1.09". Some users may prefer the fitment of one body type or another depending on the diameter of their firearm's barrel. In regards to performance, there is a negligible performance loss with the Slim Body, simply due to there being less internal surface area for the gases to be redirected. The exact amount of loss greatly depends on your caliber and load, but for example, standard 147gr FMJ .308 measures 70% recoil reduction with the Standard Body, and 67% with the Slim Body.
You can, we just don't really recommend it. Reverse-venting brakes do just that; vent gases in the reverse direction from what they were traveling. This design is how such high recoil reduction ratings are achieved. But because of that, gases and concussion are directed back to the shooter. Barrels below 14.5" can cause these forces to be quite drastic to some individuals, and more extreme depending on what caliber you are shooting. For a more detailed description, you can read our Muzzle Brake Safety Memo.

Using a bipod with target at 100 yards I can throw a 300 grain projectile down range with less muzzle movement than a 223 55 grain FMJ.
Works great, Install a lot of these !
Excellent fitment, form and function, drastically reduces recoil on my 30 caliber long guns.
I love it. It’s great. Easy installation and it significantly reduces recoil. I will be recommending this product to all my friends.
Very impressive for just a muzzle break. It is exactly what it says. You just don’t want to be the guy standing to my left or right reduces recoil significantly. I also put a SD3G Geiselle trigger, which makes this fucker run smooth.
Price, shipping ,quality of product . Very happy with all. Customer service excellent. Easy installation was a major plus for me.
I have the .30 cal and the .45 cal Hypertap brakes. One on an AR-10 in .308 and one on a 1895 in .45-70. This brake truly is the greatest brake ever made. Both significantly reduce recoil on my rifles, don't have intense reward blast and are machined and coated to perfection. My .45-70 felt like a hand held howitzer. Now, it feels like a .357 or .44 magnum. I absolutely recommend this brake to anyone looking to reduce recoil.
Excellent recoil reduction. Will buy again 3rd so far and 3 recommended to shooting partners.
