Be Kind to Your AR-15 Brass – Testing the Deflector Brake

Testing out the Deflector Brake, which is a disposable, peel, stick and press accessory for AR-15s. It absorbs some of the energy of ejected casings and reduces the speed and distance the brass travels. It minimizes damage to the brass which increases the reliability and efficiency of reloading, and it deflects spent brass forward and away from the shooter making AR-15s safer for left-handed shooters.

This Compass Will Shoot!!!

I have had a blast this past week with my Compass.  This rifle is really impressing me.  However it is a challenging rifle, and I like that.  Two issues that I have dealt with are barrel harmonics and barrel heat.  I have found during load development, a good group is almost always followed by a […]
