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.

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.

    Took my DD5V3 and calmed the recoil tremendously. Coupled with the JP silent capture spring is pure gold.

    Hypertap for .308

    Posted by Dan on 19th Jul 2022

    Love this product, it was easy to put on, tremendous amount of recoil/rise reduction on my aero precision .308, which was exactly what I needed for the night vision set up.

    This is a general review of PA. First of all they have a 20% discount for vets and active duty. This is awesome. As an example, discount tire had a 10% discount but they recently reduced it to 5%. Anyway PA"s customer service and products are excellent. I have purchased a bunch of stuff from them over the last couple of years. Just wanted to get this on the website.

    Hypertap muzzle brake

    Posted by Brad Pender on 28th Apr 2022

    It works!! And it works EXTREMELY well. Installed it on a Seekins Havak Element in 7.62 (proper indexing is stupid simple). The Element is a light rifle (5.5 lbs), but even with the Hornady Superformance (+P) ammunition the recoil was similar to a 5.56 AR. Fired 84 rounds during the inaugural range session--most from a modified prone with the butt resting on the collarbone--with no discomfort. GOOD JOB!! First quality and design are worth every penny.

    Ich habe selten so guten Service geboten bekommen

    Posted by Martin Töbich on 25th Nov 2021

    Ich habe eine Hypertap Bremse für ein AR gekauft diese funktioniert wunderbar die Rückstoßreduzierung ist sagenhaft. Das Mündungsfeuer ist nicht wirklich vorhanden solange Sie nicht grob verschmutzt. Außerdem ist Sie sehr schön anzusehen. Son nun der wichtigste Aspekt wieso ich diese Bewertung geschrieben habe. Ich komme aus Österreich und sehr wenige Firmen liefern direkt zu uns Precision Armament aber schon das finde ich super. Die Post hat mein Paket leider nicht zugestellt und das Paket zurück an den Absender geschickt. Danach habe ich kein Auskunft von der Post bekommen weshalb. Ein Mitarbeiter der Firma hat mir dann sofort weitergeholfen obwohl ich wirklich schlecht Englisch spreche. Er litt einen sogenannten Nachforschungsantrag bei der Post in die Wege. Das Paket wurde dann von der Firma nochmals verschickt mit einem anderen Versandanbieter und die Kosten übernahm die Firma anstandslos obwohl ich angeboten habe es zu bezahlen. Das war sicher nicht mein letzter Kauf bei euch. Dankeschön Mfg M. T

    The Hypertap reduced the recoil on my Christensen 300 PRC to less than the recoil of a 7.62 AR10

    Posted by Raymond Kosmach on 15th Oct 2021

    I was ready to sell my Christensen 300 PRC because of excessive recoil, until I installed a PA Hypertap Muzzle Brake, this reduced the recoil to very manageable. Great Product !!!

    Tikka .300 win mag.

    Posted by Gregory Burns FL on 8th Apr 2021

    These things defy logic. I put one on my .300 win mag Tikka and the recoil disappeared. Granted, you really don’t want to stand beside it when it goes off but it is incredibly fun to shoot now.

    Great Device

    Posted by BigTex on 6th Dec 2020

    I purchased and received the Hypertap in only one week -- great shipping response. Installed on my Browning 30-06 in a snap and used for the first time today. Simply stated, the device is great. Subjectively, it provides more kickback reduction than the Witt Machine muzzle break, and, surprisingly, even provides more kickback reduction than a .45 cal suppressor that I am able to mount on the same rifle. To be certain, there is still kick and any user of the rifle needs to be prepared for the kick; however, the rifle is indeed a pleasure to shoot repeatedly with no shoulder bruising. After adjusting my elevation by -1.25 MOA, I achieved a three shot group at 0.75 MOA from 100 yards using Hornady 178 grain Precision Hunter ammo. I was surprised that I actually had to lower the elevation on my scope. I also obtained good results at 100 yards with no additional scope adjustments using Remington CoreLokt 220 grain ammo --- albeit slightly less accurate (more like 2.0 MOA but still very good kill shots). I would recommend the device to anyone.
