Muzzle Devices

Muzzle devices are firearms components that reduce recoil, muzzle rise, noise, and flash. There are many diverse variations, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.

Fortunately, at 3CR Tactical, we offer an expansive selection of muzzle devices for a wide range of distinct firearms. Find the best option for upgrading and maintaining your favorite gun, below. 

Then, read below to discover the different types of muzzle devices and their features. That way, you can make an informed decision about which one is best for your needs.


Muzzle Devices: Adapters, Brakes, Compensators, Flash Hiders

Muzzle devices serve three main purposes for gun owners: recoil reduction, muzzle rise compensation, and sound suppression. Muzzle devices are attachments to the muzzle of a firearm that serve various purposes. 


What are the Different Types of Muzzle Devices?

There are three main types of muzzle devices: muzzle brakes, flash suppressors, and compensators. Each type has its own set of pros and cons that should be considered before deciding which is best for you.


Muzzle Brakes

Muzzle brakes are designed to reduce recoil and muzzle rise. They work by redirecting the gases that are expelled when the firearm is fired. 

This makes it easier for the shooter to stay on target and increases accuracy. However, muzzle brakes can be very loud, so they are not always the best choice for self-defense firearms.


Flash Suppressors

Flash suppressors are designed to reduce the bright flash that is emitted when the firearm is fired. This is important for hunters who do not want to spook their prey and for shooters who do not want to give away their position. Flash suppressors also help to protect the shooter's night vision. However, they can increase noise signature and muzzle rise.



Compensators are designed to counteract the effects of recoil. They work by redirecting some of the gases that are expelled when the firearm is fired. 

This helps to keep the firearm on target and increases accuracy. Compensators can also help to reduce muzzle rise. However, they can be loud and may increase noise signature.

What is a Krinkov Muzzle Brake?

A Krinkov muzzle device is something of an anti-brake. Rather than reducing recoil, it increases blow-back pressure to maintain barrel pressure and facilitate smoother cycling.


Muzzle Devices for an AR Pistol

Muzzle brakes are also available for AR-style pistols. This AR Pistol Muzzle Device is constructed of durable 7075 aluminum and threaded for ½ x 36 barrels. It offers a sleek look for any firearm. This 9mm AR Muzzle Device is similar but boasts a futuristic design and matte black finish.
