Well it was alittle over a year ago that I bought my first AR. Well I believed the hype or I was just gullible and got a muzzle brake installed. Well now I have one with and one without and can say there is no problem without having one. I can only notice a nominal difference if at all with a muzzlebrake on recoil and second, third shots. However, if you ever happen to be in a situation with no ear protection, watchout!!!!!! The muzzlebraked AR is insanely loud!!!!!

Eh? Speak up a little. I can't hear you.

True...you won't have many friends for long if you shoot next to others.

When I had my AR built I told the guy "Absolutely no fu

Try shooting a 13.5" barreled machinegun if you want a REAL loud muzzle blast and resulting concussion along with a HUGE fireball. Who cares if nobody wants to stand next to you...you can have fun all by yourself. Michael

I agree that muzzle brakes on small caliber semi-autos are useless. However, my AK-74 didn't look "right" without one, and since it's only used as a fun range gun...

I like my muzzle brake because it is loud! I can have 3 or 4 lanes next to me free and clear if I want. Viva La Muzzle Brake!

It's been my experience from judging and scoring many action shoots, that muzzle brakes do indeed play a major role in who wins. Especially in among the shooters in the top 25% or so. Somebody who posted the results from the last Knob Creek shoot took notice of this too. The results were interesting..... I wonder if I can find that thread.

And if you remount the muzzle brake backwards it actually takes noise away completely!

Dammit Pangea! Why in the hell would you let the cat out of the bag like that. Now the ATF is going to find out that this works, and it will be illegal to own these too. Smart enough to figure it out, dumb enough to blab it over the internet.... Geeeese.... [:D]

Yeah, that's loud! Now try the .308 tripple whammy- or, YIKES the .50!

When I shoot my DSA SA58 I make a point of apologizing ahead of time to anybody who is unlucky enough to be near me. This is the only gun I own that I wear both earplugs and muffs to shoot.

I hear ya! I put a Smith Enterprises brake on my STG58. The next day I went outside & fired 3 quick rounds into the ground to see how much it reduced muzzle jump / perceived recoil. When I looked out to the road that runs in front of my house, a guy had stopped his old pickup truck and was walking around it, looking to see what in the hell had broken on his truck. LMAO!!!

Tapco sells a sleeve that fit's over an AK styled Muzzle brake. I picked one up last week and tried it at the range this past Sunday. It worked out pretty good. Definitely wasn't as loud as without it, and no difference in Muzzle climb. Check it out for yourself.

A good muzzle brake will help you out in rapid fire events. It will allow you to get back on target more quickly between shots. If all you do is slow fire,, then you may not be able to see any real advantage to one.

It helps keep the skeeters away. Really. One of the ranges I go too, has lots of bugs. Fire up the ar, and they go away. Also, looks better than a naked barrel. c-rock

I agree with Arex, try the .300 Win Mag with a nice muzzle break, then tell me what's loud. Heck, how about the .375 H&H [X] Thats loud, welcome to the club- Speak up! Ice
