    I have a sig 556 that I want to get a muzzle brake on for some 3 gun comps.
    So any recommendations?

    As Far as I'm concerned the std Mil Spec bird cage works great. What grain will you be shooting? Are you trying to eliminate climb?

    3gun is at the most at Douglas Ridge is @ 200 yards I am being told. Will mostly be shooting 55gr and 62 gr. I would like as flat fliers as I can get, cause there is a lot of up close and personal as well.

    The Titan looks good but from what I am reading it is rather loud and disruptive to other shooters. And it's spendy.
    Any others you might recommend?
    Oh yea and one that might be able to mount a bayonet would be nice if possible.

    Do you even know what you are looking for and what they do?

    Muzzle break = redirects gas to reduce muzzle climb and possible recoil reduction. This comes at the "cost" of increased noise as the "blast" is generally directed back and to the sides.

    The best way to determine what is the right "tool" is to go one of the matches and see exactly what they do. See what they are using AND why. Take the guns you have now and shoot them. Any day shooting is fun if you make it fun. I did a little bit of IDPA a few years back and it was a lot of fun because I did not expect to be #1, I went to have fun and to improve my shooting for myself.

    The Titan is loud...but if you are mainly using for 3 gun, the object is to keep on target. That does a fantastic job.

    Yes I know what they are and what they do. I have installed many and used many. But I have never shot 3gun before, and was wondering from sig 556 guys if there is one that works better for 3 gun. I was thinking about the Troy medieval brake or the manticore night brake. I would rather have a round profile than flat, I like the round look better.
