I would recommend Kurts: http://www.kurtskustomfirearms.citymax.com/page/page/8932.htm I've also heard great things about Wilson Combat and Cavalry Arms

Have you seen these: [url]http://www.sogarmory.com/storehome.asp[/url] [img]http://www.sogarmory.com/images/catalog/sogarmory/1040.jpg[/img] Looks good and easy to install.

Unless you just have to have one for "cool effect" you do not NEED one. I shot two AR's yesterday one with and one without and frankly I liked mine without better. The brake made it louder and did nothing for muzzle hop that I could tell. I'll get one eventually, but there are alot of other more necessary items you could get first. Muzzle brakes are way hyped.

I'd recommend the Cavalry Arms "cavcomp". It looks like and works as well as most of the others, only costs $25, and comes already drilled for permanent pinned installation WITH a pin and instructions. Install it on the threaded barrel and get it indexed correctly. Drill for the pin and insert it. Weld over the pin and grind the weld flush, then retouch with a bit of cold blue. If you've got no welding equipment, the cavcomp or other threaded brakes can be silver soldered, but that takes a MAPP gas torch and heat sink compounds to minimize the heat's effect on your barrel steel, and will leave you a bigger refinishing job.

Another plus is it is a slide on installation, No welding , threading, pinning or solder.
