Ruger muzzle brake is a radial port design that significantly reduces felt recoil and muzzle movement. The 1/2"-28 threaded barrel allows for standard muzzle accessories to be installed
I just purchased this rifle on the Fri the 13th, so hope it hasn't jinxed me. This is my second AR-15 and really excited to shoot it. I have a ruger pistol and I love that so that is why I bought this rifle. If it is as reliable as my gun I will be ecstatic.
This is my first AR. I bought it for area defense on my ranch. My expectations on accuracy were low given what I heard about what the military determined was acceptable. After making sure I was close to sighted in at 25 yds, I moved out to 200 yds. I was stunned when I checked the first group at only 1/2 inch. Two follow up 4 shot groups produced a maximum of 3/4 inch. I am pleased beyond belief. Only complaint is the 360 degree muzzle brake kicks up dirt when shooting prone.
