hey Crow, how does the finish match up ? also, wilsons does not offer a extended version to bring 14.5 barrels out to 16" I have seen the pictures and it does look like a A2 suppressor. as soon as funds allow, I'm gonna ship my shorty AK off to have the extended brake installed. glad to hear it looks even better in person !! my only concern is if the finish will match. mine has mag phosphate and I think Kurt parkerizes. 51 out... [heavy]

How do the these two compare to the one from Gunsmoke enterprises?

Where can I get a look at a Kurts brake? I have a rifle and was thinking of using a Wilson brake. If the Kurts is better i would like to know where I could go to see one. Do they have a website?

I will consider Kurt's Brakes to be post ban legal as soon as BATF says so in writing. Wilson Combat already has their letter... Of course you can pay your money and take your chances just like Tapco and DSA did.

I can see in the pic above the differance in color on the extended brake. if I bought one does anyone know who could refinish it to match my bushmaster ? (manganese phosphate) instead of parkerized ? gunsmoke had a extended brake which had 4 slots like Kurts but they changed it and now it has vertical slots. doesnt look as good IMO. Is Kurts going to get a batf letter ? I know matching finish may sound petty... but I want it to look right is that so wrong !!!!!! 51 out... [x]

I think I will go with the Wilson Combat brake since they have the almighty letter from our friends at the ATF. [rolleyes]

Does anyone know if Kurts is in the process of getting batf approval ? what are the chances that these may not pass inspection ?

Hey Crowboy, have you shot your rifle with the new Kurts brake yet ? if so, hows the noise and flash ? does it interfere with sight picture ? I have the AK brake on my Bushy shorty and was wondering how they compare on flash,noise etc... the Kurts definetly looks better !! anyone else feel free to put your .02 in 51 out... [x]

Just a question. This is not an attack. Why does GSE promote their muzzle brake as a recoil reducer, as well as a flash reducer? They even posted pics on their Forum. Are they saying this is only for Pre-Ban use? Just curious.

Dan, thanks for the pic. HMMM, looks like a fellow could drill or ream out the end in a shtf situation and have a flash hider ?????? (just a hypothetical musing) [x]

Whats the noise level on the Kurt's brake like? Is it as bad as the "AK" and other brakes?

Wonder if Kurt could mag phosphate one or something like it for special orders ?? To be honest, and I know it sounds petty but the only reason I (and a couple of friends) haven't already had a kurts put on is the color match issue. my AK brake matches so why cant the kurts ? Noy bitchin just askin...

Maybe someone knows if the barrel with brake attached could be refinished or some other suggestion ?? having the barrel done seems to be the easiest instead of R&R of the new brake and hit and miss color matching.
