The "Shockwave" 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 Shockwave ports follow on the patent-pending "Blast Shadow" design we use in the Jetblast series brakes. These brakes are optimized for precision rifles and approved for use up to 338 Lapua Mag Improved to reduce recoil, muzzle rise, aid in precision and shootability, ease of installation and do it all without directing muzzle blast back onto the shooter because the rearward angle is optimized to "shadow" the shooter. The Shockwave brake has shown recoil reduction in excess of 60% during testing of magnum calibers.
The Shockwave uses the same locking collar approach that is found on our other brakes and includes part interchangeability with the legacy products like the "Rocket Scientist".
The Shockwave 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 the shooter wishes the brake uses (2) 1-1/16" 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. All Shockwave brakes are made from high strength CReS steel to sustain use on heavy magnum calibers.
The Shockwave comes in several of the most popular size muzzle threads on the US and European Markets
- 5/8-24 with 6.5mm aperture (Standard)
- 5/8-24 with 30cal aperture (Standard)
- 3/4-24 with 33cal aperture (Coming Soon)
The Shockwave brake is 1-1/8" OD x 3.4" long and accepts up to 0.8" of muzzle thread engagement length.

Good brake and close to 50% reduction in felt recoil. The nut came so tight I marred it up a little but after I hit it with a little heat it came loose. I try to take care of my equipment so it will last so hate it’s messed up but it’s onlt a cosmetic thing
Absolutely love it. makes my .308 (shooting 178 ELDs) kick as little or less than a buddy who has an RPR with a muzzle brake (shooting 140gr hybrids). Pull the trigger and you stay on target and can watch your own round go down range and impact the target. No muzzle blast either. this brake seems to be an improved version of the rocket scientist brake in every aspect, less recoil, no muzzle blast, easier to align straight with the barrel with the machined top, looks better, ext. I would recommend this brake to anyone.
