Do you get any flash suppression from muzzle brakes like the AK brake or the Cavcomp?

I'm 'certain' there's no flash suppression from muzzle brakes cause BATF would be unhappy if there was. (Course anything that re-directs gases might just.......... . Naw couldn't be.)

I had a an Armalite 20 spr barrel with the muzzle break.. it reduced flash beeter then the a1 and a2 flash suppressors on my four other weapons..... Hell I have a a Gemtech suppressor on my M4 that still throw out flame in Semi mode.... My 22 conversion with suppressor on a 7.5 barrel looks like a freaking laser beam.....with a two foot stream of red fire But sub man is correct the BATF (taxing authority mind you) has us all protected from the evil flashhiders...

I have an ArmaLite with a 20-inch barrel and factory muzzle brake with two vertical slots on either side. Using Winchester Q3131A ammo, which I've heard contains a flash retardant, it spits out a fireball about three inches across. I consider that pretty fair flash suppression compared to the basketball-sized fireballs I've seen coming out of AK-style brakes and bare muzzles. The M16's I shot in the Army didn't do too much better than the ArmaLite in the flash department. They just split it into a star-like pattern instead of a sphere, but the diameter was about the same.

i've got a wilson combat tactical brake on my bushy m4 and i sware it reduces the muzzle flash by at least half. pretty cool shooting it at night too cause you get 3 flame discharges from top and 2 sides and one out the pee hole.. my buddy has a shorty bushy without a muzzle device and when he shoots it at night it looks like a 44. mag going off.
