    Default Fabian Bros. DTA mil-brake for HK91

    I recently picked this up and it was sold to me as being for an HK91. The markings say 7.62 and there is what appears to be either a "B" or a "3" stamped between the set screw and rear end.
    When bottomed out, the set screw is nowhere near the splines and is rather close to the muzzle.
    I'm thinking it's for something else but not sure.
    What else from that era would use a similar thread pattern and require a set screw?

    I've never seen an old Fabian Bros./DTA with a set screw. I'm guessing that it was added on by an end user. There were quite a few 7.62 rifles in the civilian Pre-'89 era, but I don't know what else would have the same thread pitch as the HK.

    could have been for a HK 911, SR9(or TC or T) or maybe a few others that did not have a threaded barrel

    When they were sold new the assembly included a lead shot. It protected the threads on the rifle from contact with the screw.

    A very effective muzzle break.

    Thank you. I now do believe that this is for the HK. The set screw does indeed engage the threads and NOT the splines. The lead shot must have been the chunk of material I found when doing a thorough cleaning. It was smashed/dirty beyond recognition.

    Yes, that was it. When it was new it resembled a sinker for a fishing line.

    Edman99 is correct...

    Late 80’s early 90’s Fabian Brothers DTA brake...

    I have three of them here ( 2 for HK91 / G3 and 1 for HK 33 / 93 )

    The set screw has the lead stopper head ahead of set screw...
