Firearms[edit]

  • Muzzle (firearms), the mouth of a firearm
    • Muzzle brake, a device that redirects propellant gases to counter recoil and unwanted rising of the barrel during rapid fire
    • Flash suppressor reduces the visibly of the discharge by cooling or dispersing the burning muzzle gases
    • Silencer (sound suppressor) reduces the sound intensity of discharge
    • Muzzle shroud, a sleeve that extends beyond the muzzle, often considered as a form of a linear compensator, flash suppressor or concussion reduction device, depending on whether it reduces recoil, muzzle flash or redirects some of the blast away from the shooter, respectively.
    • Muzzle booster uses escaping propellant to increase recoil on portions of the firearm, the opposite of a muzzle brake
