Hello all. I've searched and read quit a bit concerning muzzle brakes and the like. However, I'm still a bit confused. I will be purchasing an M4 kit in the next two weeks. Any advantage going with a perm attached brake vs. a press on mock suppressor?

Thanks for the help.

With a press on FS you will get the look of a flash suppressor. Thats about it.

With a muzzle brake you will get a really annoying rifle. Annyoing you ask? Well, it will make your rifle obnoxiously loud. If you ever have to fire that rifle without hearing protection, your not going to be too happy.

I am going to have to agree with Knife_Sniper on this. I have the pressed on and it looks really smooth and does not add anything to the noise of the rifle.

There really isn't much need for a "muzzle brake" on an AR but there is a need for the FS.

Another reason to go with the press on:
It'll be easier to remove when you have the barrel threaded in September. [:P]

That clears it up for me. Thanks for the advice. I'll opt for the mock press on.
