Silencerco’s MAAD Brake, Say it Loud!

Send to Kindle

Silencerco

If you haven’t experienced the joy of shooting a Silencerco suppressor, you’re missing out. They’re setting the bar pretty high for the quiet side of tactical and sport shooting. And now they’re taking it farther with muzzle brakes.

This one, the MAAD Brake, is 50-state legal and will light up a dark range like the 4th of July.┬áRetail on this dude is $295, and it’s worth it, if only to make your terrifying black rifle just a bit more intimidating.

    So I guess all you saw was the flash?
    Did you ever see a flash hider at night time?

    Watch the video again and you may notice that there is little to no muzzle flip, the shooter is not having to reposition for the follow-up shot.

    Really, you shoot at the range without hearing protection? Yeah, a muzzle brake is louder than shooting without one. What does that mean? you go from really loud to really, really loud?

    All weapons throw out a flame and can start fires from the prone position, you just see it more with a brake, or a flash hider.

      I’ve shot a lot of guns at night, with flash hiders, muzzle brakes, or no muzzle device at all. None of them were anything like that. An AR15 or M16 using the standard A2 compensator has a flash that’s barely visible even at night, and reduces the muzzle flip to a point where it’s negligible. I wouldn’t want to shoot next to someone with this ridiculous thing for two reasons: first and foremost, I like not being on fire. Second, I don’t particularly like shooting next to anyone using a muzzle brake, as they tend to blast you with gas.

      Shooting this thing on a range in low light conditions is going to destroy your night vision and anyone else’s who might also be on the range. I find that rude and inconsiderate. Also, turning your AR into a flame thrower serves zero tactical purpose whatsoever, and can compromise safety, especially in a dry area or in a home defense situation.

      That’s because he is in an indoor gun range. So he is not in fear mode of someone else ready to make him lunch.”Swiss Cheese.” This is only for see what I have? Isn’t this cool? Really? I guess if you need to draw attention to your self. For $295.00 I would rather spend it on gee I don’t know AMMUNITION? Besides the sound was muffled by the audio. Where you there when this was filmed?

        Nobody seems to have observed that, in a night fire combat situation, this thing creates a giant signature that says “Here I am, kill me.” Of course, no claim was made that this would have military applications.

          So does that gigantic exhaust pipe that spews flames and smoke was cut through the middle of the bed of your truck. In America, such things are not only possible, they are just plain ‘fun’.

    So, it’s a Loudener, then?

  • Evan June 9, 2014, 10:06 am

    So it basically turns an AR into a flamethrower. How on earth could anyone possibly consider this thing a good idea? Besides the obvious safety concerns when you have tongues of flame shooting out in all directions, what possible tactical purpose could this item possibly serve? It destroys night vision, is incredibly rude to use in public with other people trying to shoot, and could possibly start fires. Yeah, I think I’ll pass.

      Seriously Evan? You have no sense of humor. The marketing is brilliant, a suppressor company putting out the opposite of a suppressor, which will drive what? More suppressor sales and a lot of conversations about their company, too bad it went over your head.

      • Evan June 11, 2014, 11:52 am

        Yeah, forgive me for not laughing about a potentially unsafe product which is solely designed to be obnoxious. That they would make something like this makes me (and probably other people who take guns seriously as well) less likely to buy one of their suppressors. “Hmm, let’s see, do I buy the Surefire suppressor or the Silencerco? Well, let’s look at what else the respective companies make. Surefire makes top quality weapon lights, slings, etc, while Silencerco makes a novelty muzzle brake that spits out two foot tongues of flame and makes a big racket. I wonder which one…”

    • CheeksMD July 12, 2015, 8:41 pm

      So you’re bitching about something that you will (obviously) never buy, are condemning other people’s sense of humor and possible fun with a product developed by a company who probably give less than a rat’s anal secretion what you think?

      Gee, I WISH that’s all I had to worry about.

      Happy Shooting Dude.
