This muzzle brake was designed for my Barrett M82A1 rifle.
The first muzzle brake was too wide and too long, so I shortened it. However, the angles on it are now not as defined.
Accurately angled gas escape holes on both versions.
Barrel of the muzzle has a hole down the center to allow for a 2x2 diameter projectile of user's choice
2x2 projectile is very close to the diameter of a the .50 BMG slug. Barrett M82A1 muzzle brake [v1] Click here for the video of two bullet designs. The first round design I made when I did not have the large cone and it got stuck in the muzzle brake. The second round goes through the muzzle brake and fell behind the desk.
Note: these represent the slugs only, not the casings!!!
