Have just ordered a DPMS 308 16" AP4 Carbine. Would like to lessen the kick some for the youngins a bit. I noticed I could order a Miculek Compensator with it. Has anyone had experience whether this reduced felt recoil much. They do ok with the RRA .223 carbine I have. --- For that matter, does anyone have any experience on if it actually recoils that hard. Had a CETME .308, bit heavier and still took some recovery time between shots.

Any of the designs that have 90-degree flats will lessen the recoil in the way you want.  Miculek, JP, PRI, MSTN, etc.  Honestly, try the Stag Arms brake that appears in their catalog, it's a very close copy of the PRI and Miculek design and is only $8.00!

Don't buy a compensator.  A true brake will have these flat surfaces that the exiting gases will impact, thus causing the rifle to be pushed away from the shooter and directly mitigating recoil.  Compensators create directional gas release and redirect gases upwards to push the muzzle down.  Compensators counter felt recoil a bit, but are mostly about speed of follow-ups.

If that's true, then $8 is a steal, but I did not find it on their site - just a "stabilizer" for around $50.  But the miculek is actually quite good. I use and prefer a JP/Cooley limited legal brake. It was about $70. It is not really $62-better than a Miculek.

THe idea is to keep the dot or cross hairs as stable as possible. The best brakes will put on hole on top of another about as fast as you can pull the trigger - even on a 300 yard target.
