Which is louder? Bushmaster Mini Y Comp or Bushmaster AK muzzle brake?

From what I have heard the mini y is the loudest.  I just shot mine for the first time and it is insane how much noise that thing makes.  I am definitely getting it swapped out ASAP!  I haven't shot one with the AK style brake yet.  I think I am going to be leaning towards a false birdcage or something of that nature.

Granted, I love the look of "something" at the end of an AR barrel, but I [b]hate[/b] the loud crack associated with brakes. [b]So, what is a "false birdcage"?[/b]

There has to be something we Post-banners can do to "dress up" the business end of our rifles w/o breaking federal regs. Let's all hope this stupid ban will sunset and we can use those [i]evil[/i] flash suppressors.

It is a muzzle brake that is designed to look like an A2 birdcage FS. I can't say whether or not it actually works like a brake though.

They have "flash hiders" that dont have the slots cut all the way through.  Other fake flash hiders are press fit over the barrel so you see the barrel through the slots.  These are called fake flash hiders.  They have brakes that look like flash hiders and they are called look-a-like brakes.  Look-a-like brakes are not as loud as AK74 or Mini Y style brakes.
