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.

I purchased the .223 hyper tap around Christmas of 2018 and it has been preforming phenomenal since. This brake is one of the finest engineered muzzle devices on the market. The pilot holes work great with a cordless drill and were super easy to drill through, I drilled out the four end holes to 1/8” and the difference is very noticeable. Would recommend in any caliber to a friend.
