I got a great deal from M1-Surplus. I spoke with them on the phone and they are very friendly and seem to know their stuff.

This might be a stupid question but are muzzle breaks supposed to be chorme lined like the barrel? Mine isn't. If they are supposed to be lined, how much of a difference will it make that mine isn't?

Here's what I got:

Not chrome lined because its US made.

True military issue AK-74 brakes will be chrome lined. What you have is a aftermarket "AK-74 style" brake that will fit a 14mm L/H thread that is common for the AKM rifles. Not having chrome lining is not that big of a deal for most casual shooters. You just have to refrain as much as possible from shooting corrosive type ammo and just make an extra point of removing the brake after each range session for a detail cleaning with your favorite solvent/CLP.

That's the cheapest I've ever seen them.

Yeah, I couldn't believe it was that cheap. In fact, I called to find out what was wrong with it. It seems like a well machined muzzle break. My only issue is the finish leaves a bit to be desired. It resembles the old finish on my SAR-1. That's ok with me, it's hanging in the tool closet waiting for the Aluma Hyde to cure. Thanks for the info SVT and Hoot. I don't see me changing over from Wolf ammo anytime soon. If this one gets too mucked up I'll go big time and order one from K-Var.
