It's similar to this:


I have a bunch of SVD pics on my web site.

I noticed that few of the AKs, except the 74, actually have muzzle brakes on them. Why is that? I saw a pic of a Serbian policeman holding an AK and it too had no muzzle (slant) brake. I believe AKMs have them, right? Is that the norm? Do few rifles have brakes? Are all of the AK-74s made with brakes and some of the 47s not? Or do some of the 74s not have brakes either?


Thanks - Shon

From what I understand, the 7.62x39 AKM's only have the slant brake for the most part. Muzzle brakes didn't become a normal part of the rifle until the AK-74.
