Introducing the Forward Controls Design 1/2x28 Xeno Muzzle Brake, also known as the 1215XE. This cutting-edge device is the latest addition to the Dead Air sound suppressor mounts line. Specifically designed for compatibility with all Dead Air 223 caliber sound suppressors, the 1215XE is threaded for 1/2x28 and is the perfect Xeno-compatible brake.

This high-performance brake is a single-chamber device that features a baffle-like chamber situated forward of the ports. The tines on the top and bottom reflect a symmetrical design. The 1215XE is engineered to seamlessly integrate with Dead Air's Xeno interface attached to a sound suppressor, offering an unrivaled level of efficiency and ease of use.

Manufactured using high-quality 4140 steel, heat treated, and black nitrided, the 1215XE is built to last. The product measures 2.16" in length and weighs 3.34 oz, making it easy to install and maneuver. However, do note that installation requires a 3/4 wrench, Armorer's wrench, or JMW, which is not included. With the 1215XE by Forward Controls Design, you have a reliable and efficient brake that is designed to deliver superior results like no other.

Best Muzzle Brake Style!

Normally I steer clear of any muzzle brakes and run A2 flash hiders or an equivalent device to prevent excess noise and dust printing.

Have yet to run this brake with a suppressor, but have run it a good bit on a modernized Mk12 rifle. The brake functions very well to reduce overall recoil force without changing its behavior, will hold the weapon/scope on target with bipod or static rest for successive fire without moving anything, and best of all - the muzzle blast is just a very soft boom like larger bore 7.62 rifle, even under corrugated metal shade or in a brickwork corner like I shot from once. There's no sharp pressure spike, spotters and shooters around you are not disturbed at all or peeved by concussive impulses like let's say Precision Armament M4-72 or SilencerCo ASR brake would cause, and because there's not a large pressure spike or jets of redirected blast, the dust signature is *very* low outside of the lightest powdered sand or dirts.
