i just got my 2 kits. both of the slant brakes are not indexed right. they are both off about twenty degrees give or take a few. are yours the same? i will probably just take them off so i will have one less US part to install.

They are supposed to be indexed to the right.

Supposedly this compensates for human anatomy (shooting right handed) torquing under recoil.

I doubt it really does anything though.

it is supposed to be that way, and yes it helps with full auto fire.

I"m probably going to swap out the slant brake for a 74 style or 22mm rommie brake on my kit, looks nice and 922r part.

It's a "Slant" brake, it is supposed to be slanted to the side. They would have called it a "straight up and down" brake otherwise.

+1 on the 74 style brake...

Not a "brake" at all, really.

It's a "compensator" that helps negate the muzzle climb that occurs during full-auto fire.

Actually it is "canted" to the side. It slants from back to front. As far as marketing goes, calling it a "cant brake" would not be a good for sales.
