NEW MFI Accuracy International (AI) Style Muzzle Brake for Remington 700 SLIP ON TYPE for .223 Caliber with Non-Threaded Barrel with O.D. @ 0.830".

As many of you know MFI is a one man show and I have a deep passion for all things that go BANG! I specifically like sniper rifles yet like most of you I am NOT made of money. Ever penny counts and while I would love to have a real AI Sniper Rifle I simply do not have the budget for it. And while I am being honest I also am old enough to know that my shooting ability could never justify owning a truly great weapon like the AI. After all I am NOT looking to make that 1500m kill shot... I just need to be able to group inside 2.5" at 200m. So I am more than happy to settle for second best. An AI chassis (or other chassis) with a Remington 700 action. I have personally built 3 - 700 sniper rifles with different chassis: .223 (AI Chassis), .308 (JAE Chassis) and 5.45 X 39 (KRG Chassis Whisky 3)... and yes that is NOT a typo... I converted a 700 SPS in .223 to shoot the Russian AK74 round... and yes I use an AI .223 box magazine for the 5.45 rifle. So needless to say... I am mental... seriously mental...

So I am no different from anyone else... I love what I see on the news and in the movies and I am not afraid to admit it. Cool is Cool after all...

This is one of 6 different models that we offer to accommodate the variety of different barrel outer diameters and thread patterns found on the Remington 700 series sniper rifles. So whether you have a Remington 700 SPS, LTR, AAC, Tactical, Long Range or VTR we have you covered. If you have a non-700 series rifle then likely one of these different brakes will work on your weapon plug and play... If not we can help there too... For $35.00 more we can modify / bore out the internal diameter to fit your barrel or even add a thread. The most common we are asked about if the SAKO TRG platform with a 18mm X 1.0 pitch Right Hand Thread... So YES!... anything is possible

Unlike our other products this item is specifically for a VERY LIMITED MARKET and as such is made in very small volumes. Normal production for any other item is 1000 per year minimum. So it goes without saying we have to charge more money for these. We do our best to keep the price down for our valued customers. Still 1/2 the cost of the AI MB that would not fit anyway.

Support the USA and "Buy American".

These are designed specifically to complete the look for customers with the Remington 700 in AI chassis / sniper stocks. So if you have ever wondered why your Accuracy International Rem 700 does not look 100% complete... It is because you are missing the final accessory.

As you know AI does not make their Muzzle Brakes to fit any of the Remington 700 SPS, LTR, XCR, or other barrels. Additionally a genuine AI brake will cost you $250.00+ if you can find one and as the design is so old, even if you modified it to fit your barrel it would not be as effective as other single stage muzzle brakes on the market.

We are NOT claiming to have the most effective muzzle brake on the market. We are focusing on the fact that we too wanted to have a cost effective product for the AI 700 platform that not only gave the correct look that we were lacking, but also was a more effective brake than the original A.I. brake.

So we took the general looks of the AI brake and made a number of improvements.

The original AI brakes are cast and lack any real clean up of casting marks. So while we were using a 100% CNC process we took a closer look at the internal area as well. We increased the effectiveness of the brake by enlarging the blast catch area. By increasing this area and reshaping the exit hole we believe we increased the effectiveness of the brake by at least 40% over the original. Thus all the negative reviews of the original AI Muzzle Brake are negated by this improvement alone.

The MFI Brakes are CNC machined from solid billet weapons grade steel.

Mil. Spec. Parkerized Dark Gray. Coating is very similar to the original AI color, perhaps a hair darker.

Exit hole size is caliber specific for maximum anti-recoil effect. One of the huge mistakes of the AI brakes is that they all have the same size exit hole which is intended for the largest caliber at the time which was the .338 Lapua round. Obviously shooting a .308 or .223 caliber bullet though such a large hole decreases the downward force generated by the upward blast significantly. This is one of the biggest complaints that you find on any of the sniper forums.

Improved anti-climb design on internal area CNC machined unlike the original cast AI MB.

We also dished / chamfered the nose of the exit hole to more evenly disburse the remaining blast as the bullet passes through this area. This eliminates any chance of a negative vortex that would change the trajectory of the bullet in flight as it exits the muzzle brake.

The set screw at the top is a 10-32 and is there to provide a dead center positive locking point if your barrel is milled for a center slot. If your barrel is not you can still use the set screw by marking the center point on your barrel to assure alignment with the muzzle brake.

NOTE: The threaded hole on the original A.I. MB is there to attach the AI front sight. We did not match exactly the profile for the AI sight in this area as I personally would never buy $600.00 worth of iron sights for my sniper rifle. Our first prototype did match this profile, but it just looked wrong / fat on those angles, so we changed it to a more appealing shape. If you look at all the military photos shot in the field you will be hard pressed to find any with the sight in play. Basically while it is a good idea in theory to have back up sights it is almost never put in to practice in the field as it adds weight and is one more thing to get caught / snagged while stalking. Lastly all sniper teams carry back up weapons for this exact reason.

That being said, if I were to get enough people ask for this option we would of course look at doing a short run of them to accommodate those customers. You will have to email me and ask about being put on that list. This is one of the advantages of being a small one man show operation. You the customer has direct access to the owner / designer / the guy who can implement your ideas. You will always have my ear in cases like this.

NOTE ON PHOTOS: As this is a pre-pay and wait situation, I do not have photos of the actual product in the Parkerized state. The coloration in some of the above photos is black spray paint as I painted the prototype to feature it in the Remington 700.


Available in the following configurations:
  • AI Style Muzzle Brake for Remington 700 Thread on application 1/2 X 28 (and clamps down) with .223 caliber exit hole. (Max. barrel O.D. @ 0.875" / Min. @ 0.850")
  • AI Style Muzzle Brake for Remington 700 Thread on application 5/8 X 24 (and clamps down) with .308 caliber exit hole. (Max. barrel O.D. @ 0.875" / Min. @ 0.850")
  • AI Style Muzzle Brake for Remington 700 Slip / Clamp on application / Non-Threaded Barrels with .223 caliber exit hole. (Max. barrel O.D. @ 0.875" / Min. @ 0.850")
  • AI Style Muzzle Brake for Remington 700 Slip / Clamp on application / Non-Threaded Barrels with .308 caliber exit hole. (Max. barrel O.D. @ 0.875" / Min. @ 0.850")
  • AI Style Muzzle Brake for Remington 700 Slip / Clamp on application / Non-Threaded Barrels with .223 caliber exit hole. (Max. barrel O.D. @ 0.845" / Min. @ 0.820")
  • AI Style Muzzle Brake for Remington 700 Slip / Clamp on application / Non-Threaded Barrels with .308 caliber exit hole. (Max. barrel O.D. @ 0.845" / Min. @ 0.820")

Only you can determine the correct item to order by measuring the outer diameter of your barrel with a digital caliper. Reasonable quality calipers are available cheap on eBay and at Harbor Freight. Digital calipers are a must for any serious gun nut. Trust me on this... Spending $30.00 on a caliper is well spent and you will find it a very useful tool on a daily basis.

The general rule of thumb here is that all Remington 700 Tactical style rifles have the same tapered profile from the 26" length going down. The O.D. from 26" to 22" is the smaller 0.830" and increases in size slightly as the barrel gets shorter / cut down. The Tactical models with barrels from 20" to 16" fall into the larger O.D. @ about 0.870".


NOTE: I will offer inside diameter boring out to fit a larger barrel O.D. @ $35.00, but this will remove the Parkerizing.
