Oldie of the 7.5″ SBR.

New muzzle brake for the AR.

It’s a XM177 replica. (I know, it’s not EXACT)
The threads are directly behind the ports. So the brake slides over the barrel quite a bit, but it gives the appearance that the barrel is a lot shorter, even though it’s still 16 inches.
The muzzle brake itself is 5 inches, but only adds about 1.5 inches to the barrel length overall, compared to my other brake which was 2.5 inches


Musee des Blindés Part 6

1 to 4) Tiger I. German heavy tank of WWII and possibly the war’s most iconic. This is a late production version, having the overlapping roadwheels adopted from the Tiger II and is fitted with narrow transport tracks. It was issued to 2nd company of the SS Heavy Panzer Battalion 102. This Tiger fought near Cauvillet. It took part in the fighting retreat all the way back to Germany. There are signs of battle-damage on the nose and the muzzle brake appears to be early version.

5 to 7) Tiger II Ausf B. The Musee des Blindés crowning exhibit; the world’s only running Tiger II. This tank served with the 1st Company, 101 SS Panzer Abt in August 1944. It is believed to have been abandoned by its crew on 23 August 1944, due to engine problems, at Brueil-en-Vexin, near Mantes-la-Jolie. It was salvaged by the French Army in September 1944, and then stored at the AMX Tank factory at Satory before being transferred to the museum in 1975.

8 to 10) Marder III. Series of German WWII tank destroyers. They mounted either a Soviet 76.2mm F-22 or 7.5-cm PaK 40 in an open-topped cupola on top of the chassis of the Panzer 38(t). They offered little protection to the crew, but added significant firepower compared to contemporary German tanks. They were in service from 1942 to 1944 and served on all fronts until the end of the war.

American soldiers around the muzzle brake and gun 170-mm guns.

So had to look the Geschützwagen Tiger.

A German engineer is testing the gun in a wooden cabin.

Got a Silencerco ASR muzzle brake tonight. I’ll probably run this rifle with the EoTech for the next two weeks before ranger school seeing as it wouldn’t make sense for me to buy the razor yet. She’s slowly being pieced together.

Still need a Vortex Razor HD GenII 1-6x, Atlas bipod, and a Geissele DMR trigger.



The new Centauro armoured vehicle represents a new stage in the evolution of the storied Centauro 105 and 120mm armoured vehicle, the first 8x8 wheeled antitank vehicle in the world with a high-pressure gun.

As regards mobility in particular, the power-to-weight ratio, increased to 24 HP/tonne, provides unequalled performance in terms of speed and acceleration thanks to the new-generation IVECO engine, offering more than 720 HP, and to the associated modernisation of the transmission, braking system and control electronics.

The digital tyre pressure control (CTIS), allied with run-flat systems, the new suspension and the low nominal ground pressure allow the new Centauro armoured vehicle to extricate itself from any type of terrain.

As for ballistic armour, protection levels are significantly higher than in the past, with a completely rearranged hull chassis and turret design, integratable add-on ballistics and technical solutions, tested to the AEP 55 standard, capable of handling threats such as mines, IEDs and the latest-generation kinetic munitions.

Crew safety has also been further increased, with partitioning of stand-by ammunition and stores within the hull, in addition to the state-of-the-art NBC, fire-fighting and anti-explosion systems.

As regards ergonomics, the ammunition reserves in the hull are automated, as is the new automatic loading system in the turret.
The third generation 120/45 mm gun (optional 105/52mm interchangeable to 120 mm), with integrated and stabilised low-recoil muzzle brake, provides the same fire power as most modern main battle tanks, with the capability of firing all latest generation 120 mm NATO APFSDS and multi-role MP munitions.
The turret, equipped with new anti-mine seats, has a crew of three men - commander, gunner and loader - with the latter able to use the new automatic loading system, while being able also to undertake manual loading operations, as back-up, or other emergency operations.

Optronic equipment includes a panoramic commander’s sight and a gunner’s sight, both latest-generation, and a back-up sight for use in degraded mode.
The vehicle is fully network-integrated (for NCW).

In the turret, as an alternative to the external turntable-mounted anti-aircraft machine gun, a remote-operated HITROLE Light turret can be installed, with the possibility of using 7.62 or 12.7 calibre machine guns as well as 40 mm AGLs, integrated with the firing system, allowing the loader to undertake battlefield surveillance from a protected position.


Musee des Blindés Part 14

1 to 3) AMX Mk. 61 105mm. French SPG based off of the highly successful AMX-13. The existing chassis of the AMX-13 was mated to a newly-designed, semi-open-air superstructure housing a potent 105mm main gun. The main gun was capped with a sizeable muzzle brake and the overall design of the vehicle remained largely faithful to AMX-13 design.

AMX Mk. 61 105mm. Artillería autopropulsada francesa basada en el altamente exitoso AMX-13. El chasis existente del AMX-13 fue apareado a una nueva superestructura semi-abierta que alojaba una potente pieza principal de 105mm. El cañón principal estaba coronado con un gran freno de boca, y el diseño general del vehículo permaneció fiel al diseño del AMX-13.

4 to 6) AMX-32. French MBT developed by GIAT for export. The AMX-32 main battle tank is a further development of the commercially successful AMX-30. The first prototype was revealed in 1982. This MBT was developed as a private venture for the export market, however it received no production orders. Relative to the AMX-30, the AMX-32 has improved armor protection.

AMX-32. TCB francés desarrollado por GIAT para exportación. El tanque de combate principal AMX-32 es un desarrollo posterior del comercialmente exitoso AMX-30. El primer prototipo fue revelado en 1982. Este TCB fue desarrollado como un proyecto privado para el mercado de exportación, pero no recibió ninguna orden de producción. Relativo al AMX-30, el AMX-32 tiene un blindaje mejorado. 

7) AMX-40. As the AMX-32 had failed to attract any potential sales, GIAT decided to produce yet another upgrade; this was the AMX-40. The development of the AMX-40 began in 1980 as a clean sheet design. However, the efforts to obtain foreign orders failed, the most serious potential customer to have considered the design being Spain. It ceased being offered for export in 1990.

AMX-40. Como el AMX-32 fracaso en atraer alguna venta potencial, GIAT decidió producir otra mejora; esta fue el AMX-40. El desarrollo del AMX-40 empezó en 1980 como un diseño completamente nuevo. Sin embargo, los esfuerzos por conseguir ordenes internacionales fracasaron, habiendo sido España el comprador potencial mas serio. Cesó de ser ofrecido para la exportación en 1990. 

8 to 10) AMX-50. French heavy tank designed in the immediate postwar period. It was proposed as, in succession, the French medium, heavy, and main battle tank and incorporated many advanced features. However, it was to suffer cancellation in the late 1950s due to unfavourable economic and political circumstances combined with delays in development.

AMX-50. Tanque pesado francés desarrollado en el tiempo  inmediato de la posguerra. Fue propuesto como, en sucesión, el tanque mediano, pesado y tanque de combate principal francés e incorporó muchas características avanzadas. Sin embargo, estaba destinado a ser cancelado a finales de los 50 debido a situaciones políticas y económicas desfavorables combinadas con retrasos en su desarrollo.

In 1956 on testing out self-propelled artillery installation, developed on the basis of the heavy tank T-10. The car had the designation “object 268” and were armed with 152-mm gun M-64 with an initial velocity armor-piercing projectile 740 m/s. blank Range at a target height of 2 m to 900 m, the maximum range of 13,000 m For direct fire was used sight TSH-2A from the closed position — the ZIS-3. Gun equipped with a muzzle brake ejector was installed in the spacious cabin welded with thick frontal armor 187 mm


Mossberg MVP

Bolt-action rifle that can use AR-15 and AR-10 magazines depending on which model you pick. The MVP stands for Mossberg Varmint and Predator and is available in 6 different configurations. The Scout and Patrol models are the only ones with back up iron sights. The owner of this one added a Spec War QD Muzzle Brake and Omega suppressor. (GRH)
