Guns Ultradyne’s New Apollo Muzzle Brake Patrick Roberts July 11, 2018 Join the Conversation The new Apollo muzzle brake from Ultradyne adds a bit of sight radius on your rifle with its interesting mounting solution. In order to allow competitors to reap the benefits of the Apollo brake, it was designed to meet all size requirements for of 3 Gun Nation, USPSA, and IPSC use. Brownells produced a video showing how the brake mounts and interfaces with the included front sight that clears up any confusion. Ultradyne's press release is below: Ultradyne, an American designer and manufacturer of quality shooting accessories, has officially released its Apollo muzzle brake. Utilizing advanced imaging and precision instrumentation, their team has engineered a device that represents the ultimate in recoil reduction. Internal testing has shown as much as a 25% advantage over previous industry-leading designs. With a design that fits within the 3-inch length and 1-inch diameter requirements of 3 Gun Nation, USPSA, and IPSC, all shooters can take advantage of features inspired by competitive shooting. Apollo's unique design includes angled muzzle-rise compensation ports at the end of the device that direct gasses away from the shooter's line of sight to avoid the vision-dazzling effects inherent in other designs. 100% CNC machined in the USA, each port was located, sized, and shaped for maximum flow utilizing a combination of modeling and precision testing. Until now such a high level of recoil reduction was not possible from a device of practical size, but Ultradyne's science- and engineering-oriented approach brings this game-changing technology to the shooting public. The performance advantages of Apollo are soon to be available in other calibers as well. Ultradyne is currently tuning the design for .308 / 7.62 and .264 / 6.5mm, bringing competition-grade performance to users of firearms in those calibers.
