Default From a well known manufacture of breaks!

Disclaimer:
Do not believe the sales pitch from some manufacturers about so-called ‘quiet’ muzzlebrakes.
All muzzlebrakes, regardless of design, will increase muzzle blast to the shooter to some degree. They will still be ‘loud’ and potentially damaging to human hearing, regardless of how efficient (or inefficient) they actually are. Provided with the use of adequate hearing protection and common sense, then no problems should arise.
We do not recommend that anyone discharge any firearm without adequate hearing protection (this includes with ‘suppressed’ guns/rifles as well). Persons around the shooter must also wear adequate hearing protection, and safe firearm handling practices must be adhered to at all times. We make our muzzlebrakes to be as effective at reducing recoil as possible, while still being compact, functional, and visually appealing. It is the responsibility of the shooter to ensure that they have adequate hearing protection for themselves and others. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we accept NO LIABILITY whatsoever from any issues that may arise from the use (or misuse) of our products.

Salty crowd. I use a APA on my 6.5 Cm. It’s fantastic. Easily spot my shots. I shoot PRS and with the time limit it’s essential to see impacts/misses. If you want one, get it. I got another APA little Bastard because I really like it. But it is loud
