Whether you run super-short or carbine-length, a 9mm AR-type weapon is a lot of fun. You see these type of guns in competitive shooting more often now than ever. Their popularity stems from the fast handling and quick target transition of the weapon. From backyard competition with your friends to the professional, timed event, a quality 9mm muzzle brake will give you a performance edge.
You double-tap, advance, reacquire, fire, and do it until you finish. That muzzle rise is barely noticeable to anyone else, but you see it. If only for a split-second, your sight picture disappears. We're not talking about life or death, just your form and performance. How many rounds will you put downrange that score? Putting a Next Level Armament 9mm speed brake on your muzzle takes you from searching to scoring. When your barrel stays flat on target after the shot, transition to the next shot is automatic. Every shot that you pull off, every smooth target transition you make shaves a piece of a second off your time. That means you fire more rounds accurately. Therefore, you're one step closer to the win.
Some shooters close their eyes at the moment of the shot. This blinking could be a reflex from heavy recoil, or a bad habit learned when they were young. On the other hand, it could be from the muzzle blast. Now, any 9mm muzzle brake is going to be loud, that's why you wear muffs. However, the Next Level Armament 9mm speed brake mitigates the shot concussion. The concussion of the shot angles away from your face. The fillings in your teeth won’t rattle, and you can keep your eyes open when you shoot.
