The Sharps Bros Badlands Blast Deflector is the first integrated muzzle brake and blast deflector 3D printed as one cohesive part. Made from high strength 17-4 stainless steel that is heat treated to H900 and then nitrided with a QPQ process for extremely high corrosion resistance. The combination of the material, the heat treat process and the hard coating enable Badlands to withstand full auto fire. The internal muzzle brake helps reduce recoil and muzzle rise by uniformly dissipating gasses through coned ports that counter recoil. Taming the dramatically expanding gasses associated with muzzle blast.
The integrated blast deflector directs blast concussion down range and away from the shooter. It also provides significant concussion reduction for those on either side of the shooter's firing position. With no external side vents or ports, Badlands also helps limit the dust & debris signature if you are firing from a prone position. The combined muzzle brake and blast deflector has a number of internal flash reduction features as well. Geometrically complex internal ribbing not possible through traditional machining methods go a long way toward disrupting unspent gunpowder and gasses expelled when the bullet leaves the barrel, thereby reducing the amount of combustion occurring outside the muzzle device.
Offered in two models, differentiated only by the direct thread offering: 1/2"x28 or 5/8"x24. Either is suitable for calibers ranging from .223 up through .354. So whether you are shooting .223/5.56, 300 Blackout, 6.5 Grendel, 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 or even 338 Federal (or 8.6 Creedmoor), Badlands is going to work for your application.
