    I have heard others discussing this brake but to be honest, have not been able to find much in the way of literature on it. Can someone point me in the right direction or give me a brief rundown on it?

    Thanks in advance!

    Not when you have to buy a new cutter every time you make one of these things.

    This is the inconel unit?

    I'm sure OLY could make it for cheaper using their "tighter tollerances" too!

    Wasn't there talk about making some of these out of a different material for cheaper or was I misinformed?

    We call this the Triple Tap P/N 21385G Enhanced Compensator

    We are doing a limited run of 100 of these items for civilian release, with the potnetial for more if these sell quickly.

    Intially it was designed as a sacrificial blast baffle and brake for the SR25 Battle Rifle 14.5 7.62 gun, it transfered to the 16" BR - and then to the 5.56mm rifles and PDW.

    as per Trey Knight

    There will be no warranty on this item and even though it will accept a M4-QD/NT4 can we do not recommend any kind of heavy usage with a can. I know this is a hot item and I know you guy's want them. The non- inconel version is the answer to this market and it is not ready yet. We(KAC) are focused on bringing more SR-15s to the commercial market so customers don't have to pay $3000 for them. Other projects will take a back seat until that happens. Please understand we are working as hard as we can to make you guy's happy and satisfy our military contracts


    The reason there is no warrantee is the fact you could easily put it inside a NT-4 and if you ran it really really hard you could rupture it inside the suppressor.

    Its unlikley - but it has happened, and as such we are being very careful about releasing it to the civilian market place.


    There is a large demand for this, but keep in mind it will be expensive, we are trying to hold retail under $500, but at this point due to the inconel, and the EDM machining needed to work this, it is an expensive part to manufacturer.

    I have a few of these, I love them, and I will be sitting in line for at least two more when they are released.

    * These need to be cleaned - or you get a large carbon buildup - and you will get the fireball that was present in Chris Costa's gun recently.

    coldblue - LtCol Dave Lutz - removes his prior to cleaning so as not to add more carbon and filth build up.

    I recommend soaking the muzzle end in a solvent tank or ultra-sonic cleaner if you do not wish to removed the Triple Tap

    When I remove them and soak in solvent - I then take a wire brush and srub the inside to clean out any caked on carbon or copper buildup.

    It's a brake much like the one on the new PDW.

    It is most likely cut by wire EDM.

    This brake works. Its not AS obtrusive as the AAC/Surefire brakes, but the recoil management would make a grown man giggle.
