AR-15 Battlecomp 1.0 Review








I finally broke down and dished out the cash for the Battlecomp 1.0 & I've been using it on a couple ARs for a few month now and here's what I've found:

Pros:

-Very good muzzle control during rapid fire strings.
-Minimal flash signature (see video for the night shooting). Similar to A2; perhaps slighly more but not much.
-Minimal side blast.
-Machined stainless steel with a black oxide finish. It's holding up quite well.
-Crush washer included (it just annoys me when they're not...)
-Carbon doesn't seem to build up in any one spot on it so it requires minimal cleaning.

Cons:

-Cost. It sells for around $120 +/- $15

All in all I'm pretty impressed with the brake. It lives up to their claims in the important measurable areas (blast/signature/muzzle control) so there's not much to dislike.

Here's a video with some day and night shooting, a discussion of specs and my overall thoughts on the brake:

Was the young lady really shooting with that stance and cheek weld? Butt of rifle looks really high on the shoulder from picture angle.

UtopiaTexasG19 : in the video she seems to do just fine .

Hey plouffedaddy You said something about cleaning the comp . Is it hard to get inside the thing to clean . There does not seem to be any ports big enough to get any cleaning tools or anything inside to clean . I would think over time and a few thousand rounds there would be a lot of build up . Is the plan , if it starts to build up just take it off and clean it ? If so would it still be a good comp to have if it needs to be pinned and welded ?

I have a set of polymer 'dental picks' and they go inside the comp without any issue. A small cloth with some solvent on it gets the job done.

But, the design of the comp seems to blast the carbon out for the most part....
