7.62/300BLK/.308 Muzzle Devices
Muzzle devices are small metal components that thread onto the end of a firearm's muzzle to change specific aspects of how it performs. Though these devices have been around for nearly a century, they are arguably more popular than ever today, with many commercially available firearms coming with one already installed.
Whether you want to minimize muzzle flash or help control recoil, a high-quality muzzle device can be a great way to improve your gun and your own shooting ability. Our large collection of .30-caliber muzzle devices includes a wide range of options so you can find the right match for your applications.
7.62/300BLK/.308 Muzzle Devices for .30-Caliber Rifles
When you shop for muzzle devices, it's important to ensure you're getting a device compatible with your rifle's caliber. These devices screw onto the end of your muzzle, and any rounds fired pass through the device on their way out of the gun, so choosing the incorrect size could represent a major safety concern.
For .30-caliber rifles, the standard thread pitch is 5/8x24. As you browse our selection of muzzle devices, you'll see that each one is clearly labeled with detailed specifications, making it easy for you to find the right device to fit your barrel.
Common Types of .308 Muzzle Devices
As mentioned above, muzzle devices are common additions to many commercially available firearms. The three most common types of .30-caliber muzzle devices include:
- Flash suppressors: Also known as flash hiders, these devices minimize the after-shot muzzle flash from the shooter's perspective.
- Muzzle brakes: These devices reduce the felt recoil of each shot.
- Compensators: While commonly thought to reduce recoil, compensators actually work to control muzzle rise.
Hybrid devices are also available, which combine the practical effects of two or more of these devices into a single unit. For example, you may find a .300 Blackout muzzle brake that also works as an effective flash suppressor.
All three muzzle devices do their jobs by manipulating the gasses generated when you fire a round. While each is similar in nature, they all differ in function and the advantages they provide to you as a shooter.
Benefits of Different Muzzle Device Types
Each type of muzzle device offers unique benefits to the shooter that positively impact how their rifle fires. Flash hiders, for example, protect the shooter from the muzzle flash as much as possible, which is beneficial in low-light conditions where their vision could be impacted.
Muzzle brakes help to reduce recoil, which relieves the shoulder fatigue you can get from shooting your .30-caliber rifle repeatedly. This device is great for practicing and could even make you a better shooter in the long run by allowing you to practice for longer periods.
Last but not least, compensators counteract muzzle rise, which allows the shooter to stay locked in on their target for faster second shots. This could be an important benefit for better shot placement when you need to follow the first round quickly.

How to choose the right muzzle device for your .30-caliber rifle
Ultimately, the right muzzle device for your rifle depends on what you intend to use it for and your personal needs and preferences. If you're looking for an addition to a gun intended for self-defense, a flash hider could serve you well.
As a competitive shooter, you may be looking for a muzzle device that helps you stay on target better or allows you to practice for longer. In these cases, a compensator or muzzle brake may be the right choice. As with any accessory you add to your firearms, the goal is to maintain safety and improve your ability to hit your target.
Why should I upgrade my muzzle device?
As long as your muzzle is threaded to the right specifications, you can change out muzzle devices at any time — these easy-to-add accessories are there to make shooting more enjoyable or perform a practical function to support your applications. If your muzzle is not threaded, you'll need to have this service performed by a gunsmith or swap out your barrels to take advantage of the capabilities of a new muzzle device.
