I hate to brake it to you, but the vast majority will keep on using break. You'll never brake them of the habit.

Brake, a mechanical device used to stop motion.

Break, to smash, split, or divide into parts violently; reduce to pieces or fragments. Just what it does to the escaping gas at the muzzle.

So why is it wrong?


IIRC both come from the same word, breken.

Just another one of those things, like belittling people for calling it a magazine and not a clip. Roll Eyes
Or "it's a suppressor, not a silencer." (someone go back in time and tell Hiram Maxim he was wrong.) Wink

That is what a muzzle brake is intended to do: stop (or slow) the rearward motion of the gun. Although it may break up the discharge gases as well, that’s not why we use them.

As for “silencer,” that’s the legal term for the devices, so that’s why I use it occasionally. Why HM called them that despite surely knowing that they didn’t always silence the sound of a gunshot, he was an entrepreneur, was he not, and don’t entrepreneurs sometimes exaggerate the characteristics of their products?

Pedantry is less important than people knowing what you are saying. Study a little linguistics and you'll discover that spelling and pronunciation varies quite a bit over time (especially in English!). What's most important is to simply be understood.

Try correctly pronouncing "SAKO" in Oklahoma and they will have NO idea what you are talking about. Pronounce it like "Seiko" as in the watches and you'll be understood.

Brake is the currently correct spelling in English but give it a few years and who knows what will happen! :-D
