I just found out about this Bulgarian flash suppressor: www.k-var.com/product.asp?0=216&1=234&3=574 and since recoil is already so mild w/the 5.45 do I keep the AK-74 brake on my SEAKs or do I get the flash suppressor just for S&G and to piss off the anti's?

not that the 5.45 needs much of a 'brake', i still prefer it for full auto fire. that...and i ain't very 'tactical'. i do not shoot at night and i actually enjoy the fireball my rifles make.



Thanks, Campy! I was leaning that way anyway since the flash from the '74 brake hasn't bothered me before but now I have a tactical light on my SEAK for use in our night matches and was wondering if I'd see any significant/practical difference between the muzzle brake & flash suppressor.

I have that suppressor on my plum and wood stocked 74's. The side folder is wearing the 4-piece krinkov supp. that is displayed on the same page. If someone wants to post pics for me, you can see how "EVIL" they look. On a side note it seems my check for gold membership is setting on someone's desk, MIA or maybe I'm not worthy of being a member.

Is there a perceptible difference in recoil between the muzzle brake and flash suppressor? Much difference in muzzle flash?

The recoil between the two is really no different, the only thing I have really noticed is when shooting under trees the leaves are blown around a great deal with the FS when it pushes the gasses up rapidly. I have not shot them at nite as my "lease" won't allow shooting after dark. But with as much force as the leaves are blown around I would assume it's a very effective flash hider. I will have to go shoot around dusk and just see what happens...
