Ruger 10/22 Muzzle Brake (Long)
Well, it is that time of the month again. Do not play dumb; you know exactly what I am talking about. It is time to talk about muzzle devices! What did you think I meant?
Anyway, muzzle devices exist in a wide variety of shapes and sizes while performing a number of different functions. You got your flash suppressors, your muzzle brakes, your compensators and your blank-firing adapters to name just a few. And as expected, each offers something unique – though some may incorporate the benefits of multiple muzzle devices into a single unit. Such is the case with the new NcStar Ruger 10/22 muzzle brake.
Ordinarily, a muzzle brake is designed to deflect some of the propellant gases that are expelled from the muzzle rearward in order to reduce felt recoil. But thanks to the unique design of this particular muzzle brake, it also provides for the rapid cooling of said gases, functioning somewhat similar to a flash suppressor as well. Of course, neither the Ruger 10/22 nor the .22 LR cartridge are known for their crippling recoil or devastating muzzle flash, but this little muzzle brake does its best and does so reliably.
The Ruger 10/22 muzzle brake is now available from Keepshooting.com for just $9.

Each Ruger 10/22 muzzle brake offered by Keepshooting.com is a new production item from NcStar. Based in California, NcStar was established in 1997 as an affordable alternative to the high-end optics corporations that were then populating the market. For 15 years, NcStar has built the experience and expertise necessary to provide a number of markets – including military, law enforcement and civilian shooters – with not only high quality and innovative optics that are designed to offer a lifetime of satisfaction, but also a number of other firearm-related products and accessories. They do so with the world-class customer service that you would expect from a small local business. Today, NcStar looks to continue offering competitive products at more-than-competitive prices as they solidify their share in the arms accessories industry.
As noted, NcStar has since branched out from the early days of optics and now specializes in a number of firearm-related products and accessories like the Ruger 10/22 muzzle brake. Featuring a solid steel construction, the Ruger 10/22 muzzle brake is a precision manufactured muzzle device designed to reduce felt recoil and suppress excess muzzle flash that may be experienced when firing the Ruger 10/22 rifle. This muzzle device, which is available in two different configurations, features a simple screw-on installation that mounts easily to the muzzle of your rifle. To install, properly align the device and slide it over the muzzle. Then tighten the device with the included hardware (screws, Allen tool)
The two configurations available for the Ruger 10/22 muzzle brake are black and silver. The black configuration, which features a blued finish for increased resistance to rust and corrosion, weighs 2.7 ounces and measures approximately 3.42 inches. The silver configuration, which features a matte finish, weighs 2.6 ounces and also measures approximately 3.42 inches. This is considered the long muzzle break, as its length is larger than a similar NcStar muzzle brake for the Ruger 10/22 that measures 2 1/2 inches.
Those looking for a reliable muzzle brake for their Ruger 10/22 need look no further than this device from NcStar. Grab your Ruger 10/22 muzzle brake today for only $9.

GET A BIGGER SET SCREW AND RE-TAP THE HOLE 1 SIZE BIGGER, ADD A DROP OF LOCTITE, AND THIS THING IS NOT COMING OFF BY ACCIDENT, EVER (Posted on 4/27/2013)
- Not the best add on for the 10/22

Well in there favor they are cheap and easy for install
In some cases they even look cool!
Not very secure. They don't fit the barrel very snug and are held on only by set screws.
The set screws leave marks on your barrel.
They fly off your barrel after a few rounds, (approximately 100 in my case) this leaves nasty scars on your barrel.
In short if you want a muzzle accessory on you 10/22 then go ahead and spend a few bucks extra and have your muzzle threaded to the standard 1/2 x 28 x.400.
Then you can use any standard AR15 muzzle devices that you like and they will stay securely in place for you.
These set screw type I have used just aren't very secure.
