Ultradyne Releases Apollo Muzzle Brake

USA – -(Ammoland.com)-  Ultradyne, an American designer and manufacturer of quality shooting accessories, has officially released its Apollo muzzle brake. Utilizing advanced imaging and precision instrumentation, their team has engineered a device that represents the ultimate in recoil reduction. Internal testing has shown as much as a 25% advantage over previous industry-leading designs.

Ultradyne Apollo Muzzle Brake

As with all Ultradyne muzzle devices_ Apollo supports available Dynamount accessories such as the C4 Sight
Ultradyne offers a variety of muzzle devices that provide different levels of recoil reduction and sonic signatures to fit the needs of different shooters.

Apollo stands as a no-compromise, recoil-reducing phenom that enables nearly instantaneous follow-up shots and is an excellent option for competition shooters who want the last word in recoil performance.

With a design that fits within the 3-inch length and 1-inch diameter requirements of 3 Gun Nation, USPSA, and IPSC, all shooters can take advantage of features inspired by competitive shooting.

Apollo’s unique design includes angled muzzle-rise compensation ports at the end of the device that direct gasses away from the shooter’s line of sight to avoid the vision-dazzling effects inherent in other designs. 100% CNC machined in the USA, each port was located, sized, and shaped for maximum flow utilizing a combination of modeling and precision testing. Until now such a high level of recoil reduction was not possible from a device of practical size, but Ultradyne’s science- and engineering-oriented approach brings this game-changing technology to the shooting public.

The performance advantages of Apollo are soon to be available in other calibers as well. Ultradyne is currently tuning the design for .308 / 7.62 and .264 / 6.5mm, bringing competition-grade performance to users of firearms in those calibers.

That last pic, is that the front site picture? Is it upside down?

Dennis Green

The front sight on the barrel makes no sense, if the barrel flexes your rear sight is still stationary on the rail so it will be off. It seems like a solution to a problem that doesn’t exist.


Actually, this is much better for accuracy. My barrel is only going to flex under fire, whereas my handguard has a potential to flex when loaded on a bipod or barricade.

If you look at most every precision iron-sight rig, from ar’s to 22’s, to people shooting bullseye competition bolt actions at 800-1,000 with just irons, they’re all barrel mounted.

Graham Baates

I agree. Rail-mounted is only accurate in the condition that you zero in, ie in a rest, etc. Additionally, any barrel shift from heat etc moves the sight with it, accuracy maintained.

Good luck shooting 800-1000 yds with irons……
