The new muzzle brake from Warped Consulting, Inc is getting a lot of attention. In addition to a recent spot in “Special Weapons” magazine, the device has seen limited operational evaluations by active military units.
In 2008, Warped Consulting Inc began development of a muzzle brake for the 6.5 Grendel and 6.8 SPC which were beginning to gain popularity. Their solution incorporates an 11-degree target crown that is claimed to enhance first-shot accuracy and interestingly was designed for combat rather than competition. According to a special operations warrior quoted in the ‘Special Weapons” article who fitted a WCI brake to his 5.56mm M4A1 carbine, â€œWow! That thing is awesome! The reduced recoil is unreal! My shot group is tighter than ever, bro! I cannot believe the difference between your product and the stock flash suppressor.â€
The WCI brake is simple to install and remove. A section of cleaning rod inserted the holes can serve as a handle to provide all the torque required. No lock washer is utilized, and Loc-Tite is not required unless you desire a more permanent solution. The threads are machined so that the brake alignment is self-timed and shoulders upon the crown of the barrel. Brakes are available for all calibers and barrels, if it is not a regular stock item it can be manufactured after providing caliber and thread size/pitch (TPI).
