New for 2020, the long awaited American Precision Arms Gen 3 Fat Bastard Muzzle Brakes are here! The Gen 3 Fat Bastard Brakes can be broken down into three key features. The first is the incorporation of APA’s U.R.P. Adjustable Gas System that was first revealed with the release of the APA’s "The Answer" Brake. Using the gas screws, the U.R.P. Adjustable Gas System allows the shooter to tune their brake so that it counters their rifle’s unique recoil profile. The U.R.P. system isn’t just responsible for recoil mitigation - once tuned, it effectively reduces/eliminates lateral movement and muzzle rise. The second feature is the new lock-nut that creates a "zero overotating platform." The final and most noticeable feature of the Gen 3 Fat Bastard Brake is the addition of a 5th Bastard Port Section for an extra level of recoil mitigation.

Cuts felt recoil like a charm! Well worth the price.

I’ve used many muzzle brakes over the years and the FB Gen 3 is among the best. I’ve found it works slightly better than done of the Precision Armament line of brakes and while on par with the Terminator line of brakes is measurable cheaper. While this should go without saying you MUST wear quality hearing protection with this brake or you will suffer permanent hearing damage. Outside of that drawback, this brake effectively enables the use of larger calibers that would otherwise be non-feasible to shoot accurately due to recoil. I have this brake on a 300 PRC and 338 Lapua and both are highly manageable even for my 12 year old kid.

Felt recoil is definitely reduced. Ability to stay on target after shot is “easy” compared with standard break from rifle manufacturer.
