Muzzle brakes

I should be picking up a Yugo underfolder here soon. And would like to find a nice small muzzle brake for it.

I don't need a flash hider, and am not interested in one. And don't want a big honk'n muzzle brake.

Looking at this one currently. Not massive, still short. Looks pretty workable.

Anybody else running their AK with something other than the regular slant or ak-74 brake?

What's wrong with the slant brake that it comes with? You are only shooting semi-auto, a brake does virtually nothing anyway. Don't waste money on useless gadgets.

Nothing is wrong with the slant brake. I'd like to do something different though.

For ~$30, I'm not wasting much. I spent over twice that at dinner tonight... that was a waste.


Anybody use a different brake?

I like the AK-74 style break on my Ak-74...but I kept the slant on my Ak-47.

I'll second the AK-74 style brake suggestion. Supposedly it's pretty good, but of course it has to be made for the AK-47. They are not interchangeable. But you lose the ability to mount a bayonet on it AFAIK. Still, this will be cosmetic only. In semi-auto shooting it does virtually nothing, and AK recoil is very soft anyway.

The brake does make a big difference. I'm running an RPK brake. It feels like an AR. However, it is excessively loud even with plugs and muffs.

I know about the whole making it a whole bunch louder deal. Lucky for me I won't be firing it inside of buildings at people or anything...

I prefer to stick with an AK74 style brake on my AK's. I've tried a couple others, but none have worked significantly better for me.

A brake will help keep the muzzle from rising during repeated shots. For instance, if you want to triple tap a target, a good brake system will help

you keep controlled aim. From my own personal experience, the real 74 style brakes are geat for this and offer better control than a slant brake. The

reviews I have seen so far for the PWS versions are interesting. However, the fake cosmetic brakes are garbage when it comes to real

performance.

PWS does make effective brakes, although they are pricey they are the most efficient that I know of.

I had a 4 piece Bulgy brake on my Draco but ended up trying a fsc47 because of a review on AR15.com. I picked up the FSC47 and love it.

Could you post a link to the review, or PM it to me. I searched around a little on arfcom, but didn't find it.

They're okay, but they're no more effective (and probably less effective) than many brakes that are shorter and lighter.

From what I'm finding on the AMD brake, they aren't held in very high regard. Guess I'll pass on that.

Everywhere has good things to say about PWS stuff though...

FSC47

Only problem is, I can't find the TTO in 7.62 on PWS's site. Only through a third party, which appears to be a copy of unknown quality.

My SCAR came with an FSC brake on it, and I love mine. They come standard on them for a reason. They're among the very best.

It works great as a brake, and isn't too blasty. It's worth it if you're willing to spend $100.

Yeah, I don't know if I'm willing to spend $100...

I was willing to do like $30.

Maybe I'll go another route. Unless someone has an extra they want to trade CR123 lithium batteries for...

While the FSC47 is simply awsome, even when used on 12" barrel AKM's like the Draco, it is pricey. It is worth it. That knock-off you saw for $30 is most likely an airsoft copy and would go kaboom on a real rifle. If you want recoil suppression then the AMD-65 brake is the hands down best bang for your buck. They are however the loudest brake out there. They also are useless for flash suppression. If anything they enhance flash. You would be the talk of the range for sure. I completely stop everyone on the range when I bust out the AMD-65 and rattle off a few rounds. 1 by 1 they come to see what cannon I'm touching off.
