Muzzle Brake is a weapon attachment designed to redirect the weapon’s propellant gases horizontally with the effect of lowering the muzzle climb of the weapon. When using the muzzle brake the gun is easier and more accurate to use. Muzzle Brakes were originally made for artillery and anti-tank guns, and have been adapted for use with various rifles and handguns.
