The muzzle brake for the gas-operated AK rifles is necessary to mitigate quite a powerful recoil (6.9 ft-lbs). Assault Kalashnikov AK-47 is one of the widely-used rifles in the world, chambered for 7.62 x 39 rounds. AK-type firearms stand behind American M16, because of less shooting accuracy.

Why do we need an AK muzzle brake?

Attachment of an AK muzzle brake allows improving AK-firing precise performance. The muzzle brake is also called a recoil compensator, becomes the barrel extension, reducing felt recoil twice, preventing shoulder injuries. The muzzle device eliminates muzzle rise, ensuring faster sights realignment on the target, and better accuracy as well.

FAQ

Why is the AK muzzle brake slanted?
The AK was engineered as a fully automatic rifle and the slant brake is necessary specifically to diminish muzzle climb while firing on full auto. It can be simply removed and replaced with any number of flash suppressors.
What is the best AK muzzle brake?
The Lantac Drakon is considered one of the most effective muzzle brakes. After this muzzle device installation, it makes the AK almost feel like the shooter is firing a rimfire rifle ( close to a lightweight 22 Magnum). The muzzle brake is effective due to the due correlation of size and weight.
Is a muzzle brake worth it?
The advantages of muzzle devices are reduced recoil, less upward and side-to-side motion while shooting, faster realignment of the sights on the target, and better accuracy.

Muzzle brake not only directs pressure and gasses up and to the sides but is also more useful at mitigating felt recoil.

Do muzzle brakes make guns louder?
The muzzle devices don’t increase the sound, they just redirect the blast more towards the shooter. That is why, in comparison with a non-braked rifle, the volume of the braked gun is louder, especially for the shooter or anyone behind or to the side of the muzzle brake.

Conclusion

Proper fitting depends on the threading of your barrel (LH or RH), check exactly what your barrel is threaded for, and choose the same thread on the muzzle device then it will operate flawlessly. If you practice prone shooting, muzzle devices without ports on the bottom will fit the best, as they reduce remarkably ground blast.

Remember that the muzzle brake attached to the rifle is considered to be the barrel extension and should be counted in the total length (according to ATF regulations), so verify your state regulation before purchasing. Take the ear protection with you every time, don’t neglect it as well.
