Does anyone know if a "AK74 style" muzzle break can be found for a Chinese Ak in 5.56 ???

Do I have to use the one for the AK's in 7.62x39 ? would it be even effective ?

You can use the same AK-74 brake, but you just need to add the adapter to convert from the 24x1.5 RH threads on the break to 14x1 LH on the barrel.

A la:

thx for the info. I will look into that !

So the AK74 muzzle break is wide enough to let a 5.56 through it ?

ETA: no AK74 brake on your website.. Will try to look for it somwhere else.. If you have any link at hand.. ;)


thx again !

You could always just screw this one straight on - you wouldn't even need the adapter:

It was meant to be mounted on a 7.62x39 AK...

do you think it would be sufficently efficient on a 5.56 ?

Yes, the AK74 brakes all have an opening large enough to allow a 7.62 bullet to pass through anyway.
