I'm now looking into a new postban bushy carbine with the AK break on it... I kinda like the way it looks, but I'm curious how they work, like: 1. Do they suppress flash at all, have no effect, or amplify it? 2.What recoil reduction to they produce, and is it worth it? 3. Does the break make the weapon louder, and if so how much? 4. Is $750 a good price for one of these, new?

The "Shorty AK" is without a doubt the loudest most piercing rifle out there. Your shooting buddies will not like it! That pronounced high freq pop goes right through me. A .50 may technically be louder, but it is nowhere near as annoying.

Dude, it looks totally cool at night. With that said, never shoot it w/o hearing protection. If WWIII would have happened, we would have won because the Russkie infantry would all have been deaf. It is also totally unnecessary.

The Bushmaster 16" A2 with the AK break is good to go. It shoots well fast. There is a huge fireball that is seen when you are firing the rifle. I personally have one and love it. $750 isn't too bad. I am sure if you get one you won't regret it. By the way I own a preban rifle as well and like the AK style muzzle break. Bushmaster also has a Y comp break and it works pretty good. Max

The AK-74 "STYLE" muzzle brake was $25 the last time I looked in my Bushmaster catalog. What is a reasonable charge to have it soldered on?

I dont know too much about the AK brake, but do NOT get the Mini Y-Comp. It is LOUD and has a 15' wash on both sides of you. It also sends a shockwave back at you. The ar-15 doesn't kick/flip that much anyways, and these brakes only do a tad of muzzle control. I am about to replace my 14.5 + mini y comp barrel and get a 16" M4 w/out the brake. I may get the Wilson Combat A2 brake later, but not now. JH

OH PLEEEASE, It's a high power rifle, It's gonna go BANG!!That bang is loud, so wear your hearing protection and stop whining! I have a Bushy shorty with the AK break and have had no complaints or even dirty looks at any range I have shot at. It also sounds no louder to me than a plain or suppressed muzzle. [heavy]

How 'bout NO BRAKE? It makes for easy cleaning and doesn't "enhance" the flash with the right ammo. And the noise goes straight out, rather than back at you or to the sides. There's some good info on this at snipercountry.com.

A Miculek or JP is louder than any of the others (I think due to the large surface areas). One to think about is the Levang Linear comp. Its only available pre-ban, but you could have it silver soldered on. Hard to describe. Look at it on the DPMS site.
