I bought a used 16" upper with a weird muzzle brake on it. I couldn't seem to get very good groups with it, even at 25 yards and at 100 only 1 round even hit the paper. Same range with my SKS, I was shooting just fine, same with the CETME. I unscrewed the muzzle brake and looked at it - there are little burrs sticking where the bullet would go. I'll try to take a good picture and upload it. Could this be affecting accuracy?

um......

YEAH.....

Your whole rifle is shot. I live in the PHX area. I'll trade you my PERFECTLY functional and accurate Yugo SKS for your broken AR.

If it's screw on muzzle brake, leave it off and shoot it like that. Does the accuracy improve?

Maybe the bullet is hitting the brake when it exits.

Ya, I bet it's the muzzle break doing it. A few CETME owners had to send their rifle back to Century to get it fixed for the same problem. Century just swapped out muzzle breaks, and then it shot fine. I see no reason why this could not be the case on your AR.

Accuracy can also be affected by an overtorqued muzzle brake or Flashsuppressor.
