NLX-11 450 bushmaster muzzle break

Postby Marco45 » Fri Jan 19, 2018 10:11 am

Just a quick post to pass on some information on the Next Level Armament NLX-11 450 brake. I have a Ruger American ranch and the factory brake works ok and looks aggressive.than I put a Ross brake on and it works better but deffening loud.Than I ran across the NLX-11 brake and in my opinion it does a much better job in recoil reduction and the sound blast is much less than the factory or the Ross brake They are 65.00 on the next level armament website and well worth the money. Check it out

I'm actually thinking about trying it on my pistol build (when I finally get my barrel that is.). Good to know it's effective without a lot coming back at you.

I run one of these on a pinned 14.5 Dead Shot barrel and have been very pleased. Recoil seems tamed well but it's hard to tell on a lightweight rig. Blast doesn't seem terrible. My Ruger didn't come with the factory brake so can't compare but for the money I think these are very good.

I just recieved mine today. I'm going to replace the factory brake on my Ruger American Ranch Rifle. I have never put a brake on a rifle before and it didn't come with any sort of instructions. Which way does the washer face? How are the holes to be oriented? How tight does it need to be? Thanks for any help with this matter.

Hi cjp1
The orientation should be a solid bar on top and the holes at one and eleven o’clock position.the crush washer will
Need to be fitted correctly to do that.( you tube will help you out) but just take a thin o-ring from the hardware store
That just fits over the threads and tighten the break by hand and go shooting it will not move and it is easy to index.
You can play with the washer later.

Let us know how you like it. Marco45

You really don't need to mess with a crush washer. You can use some lock tite or RTV silicone to get your index. I've done many ARs this way and the brakes or flash hiders don't move. Your brake has many channels to get close so you shouldn't have But just a tiny gap between the barrel and brake. I just fill this in with RTV. Just be sure to clean the threads on both the barrel and brake so your "glue" sets up properly. I don't like to put that much stress on a barrel to crush the washer. It is even harder on a bolt gun if you don't have the proper vice jaws.

Teflon Plumber's Tape works well also. You can build up the number of turns to meet your desire for tightness. I keep a roll in my range bag. A $1.50 roll will do many applications, assuming you don't already have a few rolls in the man cave. IIRC, 3 1/2 tight turns did the trick on my 20" HBAR 450b. Clean both your threads before using.
