ALG Defense’s new Sidewinder™ Muzzle Brake is machined from 17-4 Stainless Steel and fits ½-28” threaded 5.56mm barrels. Vents angled upward at the 3 and 9 o’clock locations deflect gas to the sides, away from the ground, reducing the dust and debris signature when firing from the prone position. The vents also are larger on top than on the bottom which adds muzzle-rise compensation to the ALG Sidewinder 5.56. Twin-angled canards in front of the vents boost the recoil dampening effects of the ALG Sidewinder 5.56 by increasing the forward surface area while still keeping a slim, minimalistic profile.
The ALG Sidewinder 5.56 includes a peel washer for proper timing and concentricity during installation.
The unique design of the ALG Defense Sidewinder 5.56 reduces muzzle rise and recoil, allowing the shooter to quickly get back on target for rapid follow-up shots.
