Acheron HexaLug Muzzle Brake 5.56
Effective muzzle brake with integrated HexaLug interface.
Compatible with all suppressors featuring our HexaLug quick attach mounting system. Due to the one-way compatibility of HexaLug it is possible to install a suppressor of a larger caliber, too. This allows the installation of a 7.62 mm suppressor on a 5.56 mm muzzle brake.
On rifles that are primarily or exclusively used with a suppressor, a muzzle brake should be used instead of a flash hider. The ports of the muzzle brake redirect high-pressure gas towards the side and therefore prolong the life of the suppressor.
Please note the increased intensity of the muzzle blast affecting bystanders next to the shooter if the rifle is used without a suppressor.
