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.
Ultradyne offers a variety of muzzle devices that provide different levels of recoil reduction and sonic signatures to fit the needs of different shooters.
Apollo stands as a no-compromise, recoil-reducing phenom that enables nearly instantaneous follow-up shots and is an excellent option for competition shooters who want the last word in recoil performance.
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.
