Which brake is best for controlling barrel rise?

The JP tank brake.

All of the above and the regular JP brake and miculek brakes.

On that subject...can anyone ID the brake on my DPMS Dissy? I'm thinking of replacing it with a Phantom (for purely cosmetic reasons), but if it's something that will give me better performance I would probably keep it.

Looks to be the Fabio Muzzle Stabilizer.

Thanks for your help.

Iwould use an mgi or enendine buffer before a muzzle break because of the increased noise.

I have Miculek, Bennie Cooley, MSTN, and the JP - JP tank brake wins easily - you just don't want to be on either side of it

For those who have experience with them, how does the Miculek compare to the MSTN QC? The factors important to me are: quality in construciton/finish, bombproofness, effectiveness in reducing muzzle rize, noise, and overall size (i.e. do they look a little too big sitting on the end of a 14.5" barrel?).

Any opinions would be helpful. Currently I've got a Smith brake (the one that looks like a long A2 flash hider, NOT the funky looking one with all the holes in it), from Brownells that I'm happy with. Just looking to see if something might be a little better.

Thanks and Happy New Year!

I've got the Miculek brake on the end of a 14.5" M4. It is very well machined and looks good. I don't notice any muzzle rise and very minimal recoil. However, it annoys people adjacent to me at the range.

My Colt 6400C has a brake that resembles a Miculek brake and it's amazingly effective...but noisy.

If you're building a range gun and will *always* be wearing hearing protection when firing it, a brake is a great idea. The extra pressure and noise they redirect won't be a problem.

However...if you have any plans on using the rifle for home defense, you'd want to consider a regular flash hider if your state law allows.

I've fired M4 variants with regular flash suppressors and they're much easier on unprotected ears than any of the brake/compensator ones.

Again, only a consideration if the rifle is destined for use where hearing protection isn't practical.

I am looking for a brake for a 13" bbl AC556- to cntrol muzzle rise.

Any suggestions?
Link Posted: 2/15/2006 5:17:45 AM EDT
The Tank brake is the most effective but its not legal - except in open.

Tried the Mini Y from bushmaster & its the most obnoxious by far & not as effective.

Best brake? the Cooley comp available through JP.

I also hear good things about the TTi.

I'm talking about putting this on a full auto MG. Not worried about legality for competition.

A good suppressor.

Has anyone tried the Tri-Nozzle Flash-Break from Stag?
