We're getting close with our aluminum prototype. We won't offer the final hooded front sight/muzzle brake in aluminum, of course, but it's cheaper & easier on the CNC machine to use aluminum for the first prototype. We'll mount it on a traditional-barrel Mini-14 & see how it fits & functions. If all goes well, we'll follow up with a few out of stainless steel. We're using a 196-series blue Mini-14 to begin our testing, so I'll use the same KG Gun Kote baked on satin black finish I use for Mo-Rods. We'll get some photos along the way. I think this will be popular, but I have no idea yet what the unit costs will be. More to come...

Default Grim Reaper Passes Tests

Well, we took our new product, the "Grim Reaper," out for a test today. As stated, this prototype was machined out of a solid block of aluminum. It surpassed our expectations to the point that we are now thinking of staying with aluminum. As you can see from the pics below, it's a sturdy accessory...
(Don't sweat the rubber band...a temporary cross pin holder...)

Looks great, what kind of price range you looking at on this? How easy is it to install?

Don't know what we'll ask yet...The first one always takes longer, so we'll make a few more & see what the realistic hours are for production. I'll let you know as soon as we figure it out...

Oh, as for installation, we designed it to use the same roll pin and barrel groove that the factory front sight uses. There is also a set screw on the bottom side.

KMO,
Looks good, although I would not use aluminum for the final product. The aluminum will not survive long term use with the pressures involved in the brake. Been there, done that with prorotype brakes.
