ak muzzle brake
 
i am wondering about muzzle brakes for my IO inc. ak47c. it has a tapco slanted brake on it right now, but i was wondering about better options. also, if i were to shoot the gun without any muzzly brake, what would happen? would i destroy the crown, or would it just make a bigger flash and jump higher? thanks a lot.

There is several options available for the AK 47 when it comes to breaks. I personally use a J-tac and love it.

Also, more than likely your break is used as a 922r compliance part. So I if you plan on replacing it, make sure you do so with a U.S. made unit. As for shooting your rifle without a break...it shouldn't hurt the crown but it will be loud and or bonce around more.

FYI: the slant break is designed for a full auto AK47.

You might also try a US made AK74 brake, I've got one on my Arsenal and it's very effective albeit loud.

I have a screw on AK-74 muzzle brake on my preban Polytech AK.

It's fine for daytime but it makes the muzzle flash at night really bright.

For night shooting I can just unscrew it and put it in my pocket.

I put a slant break on my WASR, I went back to the muzzle nut. The break is to aid in reducing muzzle rise during full auto firing. Mine is semi, therefore not needed. I really didn't notice any change between the two. I did start thinking that the trajectory of the round would be more consistent with the nut vs the the slant break. Probably doesn't matter though, I'm anal about some things :D:

You will likely not notice any difference in perceived recoil with no slant brake and just a muzzle nut vs. the slant brake. The AK74 style brakes are much more effective as an actual brake. If you desire flash supression, your best bet is a Smith Enterprises flash eliminator style unit IMHO...

Look into the muzzle break made by J-Tac.
Do a youtube search for the demo vids.
