The "Jet Blast" is the latest addition to Patriot Valley Arms' popular muzzle brake line-up. It brings a welcome addition to the line of brakes known for excellent recoil reduction, easy installation, and excellent manufacturing quality. The "Jet Blast" ports are optimized for precision rifles and approved for use up to 300 Win Mag to reduce recoil, aid in precision and shootability, ease of install and do it all without directing muzzle blast back onto the shooter because the rearward angle is optimized to "shadow" the shooter. This is accomplished by using our new patent-pending "Blast Shadow" ports. Take a look at the snapshots we grabbed during testing, recoil reduction levels over 57% have been measured with this brake!
The "Jet Blast" uses the same locking collar approach that is found on our other brakes and includes part interchangeability with the "Mad Scientist".
The "Jet Blast" uses a threaded collar in order to index the muzzle brake without additional machining work required on each barrel. It is also not 1-time use like other machine-timed brakes but rather can be used barrel after barrel after barrel, saving shooters significant money on each subsequent barrel that they purchase.
Users have found excellent performance with simply putting the brakes on by hand without tools however if it is necesssary the brake uses (2) 15/16" wrenches to snug into place and does not need any thread locking agents to maintain position firmly locked to the end of the barrel for thousands of rounds of use. Most shooters elect to simply install it by hand for quick and easy removal when using a suppressor.
Standard sizes include the following below. Start by clicking on the thread pattern, then the aperture size and finally the surface finish to see the stock status and choose your brake.

I have one each on a 6.5 Creedmoor and a 5.56 AR. The Jet Blast eliminates muzzle jump and it's a piece of cake to spot hits on my own. Felt recoil on the 6.5 is not bad to begin with, but this brake makes that rifle feel like a .22 LR. The fact that installation (and removal) could not be simpler adds to the appeal. I will be adding another for an upcoming build.
A very effective brake. I first used mine on my John Hancock Rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor and found it very effective. Since the JHR was my first experience with thee 6.5 CM I bought a second Jet Blast for my AR10 in 7mm-08. The recoil was virtually non existent after installing the Jet Blast brake. Just for fun I also tried it on a Thompson Compass also chambered in 7mm-08, again, a great reduction in recoil. The Jet Blast does live upto it's name, however for adjacent shooters at the range it gave them a blast of air but not the concussive effect that some brakes deliver.
Installed on my JHR in 6.5 Creedmoor rifle the Jet bake males the rifle shoot like a 9mm AR. I am very happy with the performance as well as the fit and finish.
Best muzzle brake I've used, hands down. Zero, and I mean ZERO muzzle jump with this brake! I've run the others (Hellfire, LB, SAS, SF etc.) and decided to put all JB's on all my guns. Don't waste time and money with other brakes!
I bought this for a 6.5 creedmoor. Has easy install. Never shot gun without brake, but shoots like a dream with it installed. Verry little recoil. I would buy another when needed.
Bought a Jetblast brake a little over a year ago, it's been great ever since. No muzzle blast at the shooter, and good recoil minimizing ability.
The recoil is so well tamed on my Bergara b14 hmr .308. At 100 yards I was easily watching the holes being made in the target. Before I would have to use fumble around to get the scope back on target after each shot. Even at 400 yards I was watching sparks fly off the steel plates (shooting at dusk is fun for that reason). Also the felt recoil and backwards concussion is so much less. This is a must have for a .308 precision rifle!
Excellent machining and finish. Easy to install, and dramatic reduction in muzzle blast. I highly recommend it.
Started with a lil bastard which yielded excessive gas in the face, like getting hit with a tennis racket in the face. Made a transition to the Mad Scientist which yielded no gas in the face. Decided to try the jet blast, it is louder to the ear but yields no gas in the face.
