    product evaluation: VG6 Gamma 556 Tactical Muzzle Brake

    An "internet friend of mine" who works for Precision Delivery Systems (Firearms parts and accessories) sent me the VG6 Gamma 556 Tactical Muzzle Brake for little "sneak preview" evaluation.

    The Brake came professionally packaged and included a crush washer. The machining and finish were all top notch. Taking my first look at the device I identified it as a hybrid Brake/Comp affair with some fairly standard brake vents on the sides and compensator slots at 12 o'clock.



    Although the instructions suggest a gunsmith install, installation was fairly easy. I only had one snag and that was with the timing of the device with the crush washer supplied. After hand tightening to the washer I put 360 degrees of turn on it and the washer still wasn't crushed entirely. Rather than pushing my luck (or eating time sanding down the washer), I backed off and tried a different crush washer I had laying about. With that washer a 360 degree turn resulted in full crush and 12 o'clock timing of the comp slots.



    I've had my rifle out with it a few times since I installed it, but it took me till today to finally got around to getting some film.



    Don't let my shooting ability be your gauge for this brakes effectiveness ;). I'm happy with my results at 10 yds on a 2" target (those would all be head shots on a standard silhouette) but I'm wagering that a better shooter than me could really show some impressive results. The recoil and rise with this thing on are almost nill. While the angle isn't the greatest for comparison, the following video was shot with a standard A2 birdcage. You can see a bit of difference in how the rifle handled between the two.



    I know that the standard line regarding brakes is that the noise/blast to the sides can make you a bad neighbor on the firing line, and there is some additional blast compared to the A2. But from behind the gun I feel almost no difference at all.

    If you are in the market for a brake/comp the VG6 is definitely worth your while taking a look at.

    Pretty slick - I couldn't see any barrel rise in the VG6 vid.

    You really need a n00b shooter to visually see the differences in black and white

    Hi Joe, the only Gamma brakes out are for 5.56mm/.223 and .300BLK. The .300BLK will fit on most .308s and will 'work' but they really have not been optimized for .308. We're working on a 7.62x39 version.
