Set screw muzzle brake

Anyone remember these? I have a brake manufactured by SAI on my century. I am unable to find information on the brake or SAI. It has worked for me. Was this a 922(r) item? It has four set screws and is a slip-on.

It was a work around for the federal 1994 Assault Rifle ban and state laws that ban threaded muzzles. It also allowed someone to accessorize there rifle or handgun irregardless of the legalities and the need for muzzle threads.

SAI became SEI (Smith Enterprise) after incorporation.

Typically on gun forums the acronym of SAI refers to Springfield Armory Inc. the manufacturers of the M1A rifle.

I have never seen the acronym of SAI referring to Smith Enterprises Inc., only the acronym of SEI, but whatever.

Smith Arms International Corp. Incorporated Dec 12 1991 Tempe AZ Ron Smith.
Changed name in 1993 probably to the confusion of Springfield Armory Inc.
