The New Muzzle-Loaders™ Muzzle Brake - Product Overview

The new Muzzle-Loaders™ Muzzle Brake is the latest addition to our product line up. Due to the high demand for a directional muzzle brake we were motivated to manufacture one that will work with the new CVA Accura X-Treme series and Paramount series rifles.

This muzzle brake features 3 directional ports that dramatically reduce felt recoil up to 60%. In addition the side ported design allows smoke to quickly disperse from the shooters field of view. This allows for much faster and easier target re-acquisition after taking a shot.

This muzzle brake will be offered in .50 caliber as well as a .45/.40 caliber option. Key to the design is the self timing nature of the brake. This allows anyone to properly install the brake without the need to take it to a gunsmith. We have included a video below to demonstrate how to properly install and level the muzzle brake on your rifle.

A great feature of the brake is the enlarged base port. This larger port allows for easier extraction of cleaning patches, thus improving the efficiency of cleaning your muzzleloader without having to remove the brake.

Muzzle-Loaders Muzzle Brake Large Base Port

Our muzzle brakes are stainless steel and feature the highly regarded Nitride™ treatment process to ensure they are going to last for a lifetime of use. Nitride™ treating the brake makes it nearly impervious to rust and corrosion which is an absolute necessity when shooting highly corrosive black powder.

We have put together a video to demonstrate the performance we have achieved with the muzzle brake which can be viewed below.


For some additional information, which can also be found on the muzzle brake product pages, we have included written installation instructions as well as some of our testing ballistics below.

Installation Instructions:

1.) Screw the timing nut firmly against the brake.

2.) Thread the brake onto the threaded muzzle until it is hand-tight.

3.) Unthread the brake until it is level with the rifle barrel. (We recommend using a level on the flat portion of the brake to ensure proper orientation).

4.) Thread the timing nut firmly against the barrel. The brake will tighten firmly against the barrel when complete. (We recommend firmly holding the brake in place to ensure proper orientation).

Our Field Testing Findings:

We took several trips out to the range to test variations of this muzzle brake during the research and development phase. Below I have posted the target groups we were able to accomplish with the final product. Please note that every gun is unique and adding a muzzle brake will change the harmonics of the barrel on your muzzleloader. This is not a problem, however, it may require some extra range time to ensure the load you choose to run is properly tuned with the muzzle brake. If the time is taken to develop a load that works nicely in your rifle we are confident you will be able to achieve similar results to what we have listed below.

.50 caliber muzzleloader muzzle brake review

As can be seen in the image above the 4 shots in the center of the target are the results we had shooting the CVA Accura LR-X .50 caliber muzzleloader with our Muzzle-Loaders™ muzzle brake attached. You will note a 3 shot group that is stacked right on top of each other with one outliner. The one outlier was the first shot taken before any scope adjustments. The 3 shot group was then fired after scope adjustments had been made. As can be seen in the photo they are all in a 1" by 1" square. For black powder muzzleloader shooting it doesn't get much better than that at 100 yards! When we designed this muzzle brake it was imperative that it would not cause any reduction in accuracy and we are pleased with how the final product is performing.

It is important to note that we tried other powders and bullets as well with larger group spacings. This highlights the need to find the best powder load and bullet combination for your gun with the brake attached. Since the harmonics will be different with the brake attached, you may need to increase or decrease the powder charge. Overall we were able to get very solid groups no larger than 2" at 100 yards with Pyrodex and Hodgdon Triple 7 FFG as well without doing any load development. With proper load development the groups came right back into the 1" groups we expect out of the CVA Accura LR-X muzzleloader at 100 yards.

Of course as with any of our products if you have questions please feel free to reach out to our friendly and knowledgable customer service staff at 855 236 5000 or via email at

You are loved by God. In fact He sent His Son Jesus Christ to come to earth live a perfect life and die on a cross for our sins. More than that He raised this same Jesus Christ from the dead for our justification, that all who believe in Him should not perish but have eternal life with God.

Romans 3:23: "for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,"

Romans 5:8: "But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us."

Romans 6:23: "For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."

Romans 10:9: "that if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved;"


The joy of salvation:

Romans 5:1: "Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ,"

Romans 8:1: "Therefore there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."

Romans 8:38-39: "For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord."
