In your opinion what is the best muzzle brake for an AK47? I'm thinking about putting a muzzle break on my ak.

For the 47 I like the slant cut brake. However, the best performing is obviously the real AK74 break, but it just looks silly on a 47...

I have the 74 brake on mine : https://www.survivalistboards.com/sho...02#post1969602

I don't think it looks bad at all AND it is a huge difference over the slant cut muzzle nut.

I like a flash hider instead and it's probably more useful on a semiauto AK unless you need a real quick second shot. When I hacksawed off the muzzle nut on my old WASR I tried a standard slant brake but then went to the Tapco RPG style flash hider. (Had to have a US part for compliance after cutting off the muzzle nut.)

True, and if you put quality Ak74 furniture on your 47, it looks pretty bad ass. Especially with Bulgarian poly mags. You get the more aesthetically pleasing 74, but the tried and true 7.62.

(he he that rhymed. )

I just don't like the look of a 74 break on a "traditional" looking Ak47.

I'm looking for recoil reduction so I can get off faster follow up shots. Is there any specific 74 break to stay away from? Something that's just total junk?

the wedge compensator only helps with select fire. The 74 brake does that AND functions as a flash suppressor. Got one on both my AKids.

The "Krinkov" brake is cosmetic only. I have one and it had no effect on the gun except to add weight.

Well, I would personally avoid anything but true military breaks, but you cannot use a real AK74 brake. You have to get a REAL AK103 brake, which is the same thing, but for 7.62. But to use it, you also need a 14mm to 24x1.5 adapter.

The simplest and cheapest way to go is the tapco 74 brake for 7.62 with the 14mmx1lh thread. It has some good reviews. But, If money is no object, I'd go the mil-spec route and get a 14mm to 24mmx1.5 adapter and get a real Ak103 brake. I think the cost there is $125-150 if you can actually find what you need. Arsenal also makes AK103 brakes, they're about half the price I think, like $60, plus the adapter.

The tapco brake may help quite a bit, but I think it's safe to say the thread adapter and AK103 brake would help more.

Also, the krink brake isn't a brake at all, it's just a flash hider.

First, I am not sure that a semi auto 7.62 recoils enough to need a brake.

That said, I replaced the FSB on my Saiga with one that has 24mm threads and a bayo lug. I have a Bulgy AK74 zig zag brake on it. I learned to apply anti-seize compound to the threads. It helps to keep the threads from binding with carbon.

I couldn't agree with this more.

Can you give me a link to the bayo lug attachment that you used on your Saiga?

SEMI AUTO, no need for a brake IMO. If your trying to comply with 922r regs OK but, you may get some some benefit from a flash hider, I put the muzzle nut back on my WASR.

I don't care what my hammer looks like, I just need it to pound nails and beat lumber into place.

You can definitely tell a difference in follow up shots with a good brake...

I'm with H&Coke here....

Just because it's semi-auto doesn't mean you'll have all the time in the world for a follow-up shot.

Anyone know a good brake that also works as a flash suppressor for the 47? Links would be appreciated.

I ALSO think the AK47 does indeed benefit from a brake like the one for a AK74

But for some the brake isn't as important as reducing muzzle flash with a FH. Choose yer weapon...

The Smith Vortex Flash Eliminator is the way to go. It completely eliminates discernable "flash" at night and reduces perceived recoil (not heavy to begin with) by 10 - 15%.

While I agree that the AK-74 style brake is more effective at recoil reduction, it adds to "flash" which could lead to your demise in a tactical situation.

The Smith Vortex Flash Eliminator is your best overall choice...

If I'm in that kind of "tactical" situation, the last thing that's going to get me killed is muzzle flash...
