E-2 Muzzle Brake

Art, Is that a E-2 slip over partial muzzle Brake?

Have one on my M-14A1-E-2 transferable Full-Auto with the E-2 Muzzle brake and E-2 stock,Bi-Pod and correct sling. That E-2 muzzle brake does make it allot more controllable.

The receiver was a single cut Winchester re-welded By Neal Smith back in the good ole days.

The brake is an LRB that affixes in place of a standard flashhider and uses the same front sight. They are very well made and I highly recommend them.
Always keep a few in the shop for builds.

The windage marks on the TRW/Bula receiver are very light, but quite visible. If I were a better photographer perhaps they could show up better.



At least the mfg shows up better than many I have seen.



Fun projects at any rate.

They came from an individuals private collection and were offered to me thru email.
Yes they are unused, but not recent production.
