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.

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.
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.
