Precision Armament Hypertap® Slim Muzzle Brake 7.62/.308 Cal 1/2×28 Thread Matte Black


Developed from the ground up and backed by knowledge gained from years of pushing the edge of muzzle device performance, the Hypertap muzzle brake delivers more than we’ve ever offered before. Our proprietary Hybrid Baffle Design combined with advanced Convergent-Divergent port geometry yields an unprecedented recoil reduction of over 84%*, nearly 10% higher than our M4-72, while maintaining modest 35-degree baffle angles and generous bore clearance. This results in exceptional safety, less gas blowback, better accuracy, and higher overall shooter comfort than any other device in its class. Fully tunable gas biasing allows the shooter to further reduce, or even eliminate, sight picture movement while firing. An integral universal timing nut eliminates the need for shims and allows quick field installation & removal using an adjustable wrench or the lightweight spanner tools (included). Additional features include: zero flash increase, compact lightweight design, a rugged skeletonized crown, cleaning friendly design, heat-treated stainless steel construction, a tough Ionbond® CrCN finish for superior durability and, as always, 100% Made in the USA.

Minimum recommended barrel length 14.5”


  • Recoil reduction of over 70%*
    • Advanced Convergent-Divergent (CD) port geometry yields maximum gas dynamic efficiency allowing unprecedented recoil reduction while maintaining safe baffle angles and bore clearance.
  • Integrated Universal Timing Nut
    • Integrated timing nut eliminates the need to use shims or washers for installation
    • Spanner wrenches included for easy field installation and removal
  • Safe Baffle Angles
    • Safe 35-degree impingement angles prevent dangerous splashback from reaching the shooter in the event of a baffle strike.
  • Generous Bore Clearance
    • The largest bore clearance in the industry improves forgiveness against misalignments providing maximum safety and accuracy.
  • Low Gas Blowback
    • Advanced CD port geometry produces a narrow exhaust plume precisely vectored to keep gases away from the shooter.
  • Zero Flash Increase
    • Will not increase or generate secondary flash, minimizing flash related blast effects common to other devices.
  • Fully User Tunable
    • Piloted drill-out ports allow customized multi-directional gas biasing to maintain a rock solid sight picture that does not move when firing.
  • Lightweight & Compact
    • FEA optimized to provide a competition legal package that is lighter, smaller, and shorter than any other device in its class.
  • Hybrid Baffle Design
    • An advanced continuous curvature baffle geometry efficiently diverts high pressure gas away from the bore axis, effectively combining flat baffle accuracy with angled baffle performance.
  • Symmetric Bore Apeture
    • Hybrid baffle geometry provides a fully axisymmetric bore aperture with minimum bore wall surface area, effectively minimizing projectile-baffle interaction and initial yaw angle for maximum BC and long range accuracy.
  • Precision Bore Alignment
    • All alignment features machined in same operation as bore for maximum straightness and concentricity. All threads held to tight class 3+ tolerances.
  • Rugged Skeletonized Crown
    • Skeletonized exit crown protects exit aperture against foreign debris and impact damage.
  • Cleaning Freindly Design
    • Open muzzle crown and fully exposed baffles help reduce carbon buildup and facilitate easy cleaning.

I don’t see my caliber listed, which one do I select?

When selecting a caliber for one of our muzzle devices, the correct choice is based on your cartridge’s actual bullet diameter. For example; if you have a .300 Win Mag, you would select a 7.62/.308 muzzle device. This is because the bullet for that cartridge is a .308″ diameter.

How do I drill out the pilot holes on my Hypertap?

efore you begin drilling out any ports on your Hypertap, it is very important to decide if you even need to do so. With the Hypertap reducing such a high amount of recoil, there is often not enough force remaining to induce muzzle rise. Unnecessary drilling of the brake could result in overcompensation – actually driving the muzzle down after each shot. Additionally, excessive drilling can reduce the brake’s overall recoil reduction rating. This is due to the internal gases no longer following their intended path of the convergent-divergent baffles. If after these considerations, you do decide to drill the Hypertap, we recommend starting with the front-most pilot holes and using a drill diameter smaller than the max diameter listed in the manual for your caliber.

What is the difference between the Slim and Standard Body options?

The Slim Body Hypertap has an O.D. of 0.90″, while the Standard Body has an O.D. of 1.09″. Some users may prefer the fitment of one body type or another depending on the diameter of their firearm’s barrel. In regards to performance, there is a negligible performance loss with the Slim Body, simply due to there being less internal surface area for the gases to be redirected. The exact amount of loss greatly depends on your caliber and load, but for example, standard 147gr FMJ .308 measures 70% recoil reduction with the Standard Body, and 67% with the Slim Body.

Can I put this on my shorter-than-14.5″ barrel?

You can, we just don’t really recommend it. Reverse-venting brakes do just that; vent gases in the reverse direction from where they were traveling. This design is how such high recoil reduction ratings are achieved. But because of that, gases and concussion are directed back to the shooter. Barrels below 14.5″ can cause these forces to be quite drastic to some individuals, and more extreme depending on what caliber you are shooting.
