I'm noticing that most of the Bulgarian muzzle brakes have crescent shaped vents while the EG brakes have the zig-zag cut vents.
A few questions:
1. Will either brake work for an AK chambered in 5.56 (.223)?
2. Functionally are they the same? Is either brake any better or more desireable than the other?
I ask because I'm looking for a muzzle brake for my .223 Saiga and need help finding a good one.
Thanks for any input.
It should work for a .223 but I don't know for sure.
As for the differences,the Bulgy has the half Moon cuts as opposed to the zig zag cuts on the Russian/East German brake.There is another difference that,I feel,makes the Russian/EG a little more effective.The one mounted on the rifle is the Russian/EG the other is a Bulgarian,notice the narrower forward divider on the Russian.
