HPF-15 Curse Muzzle Brake
Houlding Precision Firearms has taken a serious approach to resolving the problems normal AR weapon systems have with shooting the 5.56 cartridge. By designing a muzzle device that makes the shooting experience far more enjoyable we have created an all around brake that reduces muzzle climb, felt recoil, light signature and sound so you can shoot comfortably in any situation you are in.
The HPF Curse was developed to mitigate recoil with the use of a duel gas chamber with evenly spaced slots to redirect gasses at 60 degrees and directly upwards with a slight flash reduction. This keeps your muzzle flat, on target, and makes your shot splits faster. The bottom slots are directed at 60 degrees to prevent dust from kicking up and blocking optics or creating annoyances. All Houlding Firearms brakes are CNC machined from 1144 Stressproof Steel and come with a Malonite finish. Thread pitch is ½-28 and will fit all ½-28 AR-15 barrels.

I picked one of these up to go with a barrel for a build to sell in my shop. After getting the AR15 built with a 16" Govt/Socom barrel I sent 5 rounds down range and the sights didn't move. The next day I handed it off to a buddy who fired another 5 rounds and they were amazed that they felt no recoil and the muzzle didn't rise.
The trade off is that this style of muzzle brake sends more of the "bang" off to the sides and backwards than some. Not nearly as bad as most or say even an AK74 brake. This is an issue with any of the recoil reducing brakes.
The flash I handled very well and not noticeable while firing in an indoor lighted range. Any fire is directed at an upwards angle and off to the sides leaving the sight line nice and clear.
This would be a great brake for general use or competition shooting where low recoil and fast follow up shots are key. Marshall Holmes on 28th Nov 2016
This muzzle brake works great at reducing muzzle climb. Well built. It is very loud. bearcat4551 on 18th Dec 2015
