"I don't now who's idea it was to say this is for a AK becuse it an\"t.I tride to put this on my AK 74 and it will not fit, for one thing it is to big around and it will not slide over the end of the cleaning rod even with the rod removed it still won't work.I even went so far as to take it to a gunsmith and he said he had no idea how it could possibly fit, we also tride to fit it on a standerd AK 47 with no luck."

"I bought this item for a Romanian SAR-1 figuring that if didn't work, I was only out ten bucks, compared to the cost of threading the barrel.OD is 0.875\", OD around FSB is 1.00\". OAL is 3.41\". Width of FSB cut is 0.482\". Bore diameter is 0.392\". ID (muzzle) is 0.574\". Supplied extended FSB pin OD is 0.119\".They aren't joking when they say \"Fits Russian and Chinese guns\". As far as \"will fit others with minor modifcations\" goes, there is no cut in the bottom of the brake to allow room for the bottom of the front sight block (FSB) of the SAR-1. Even if there were, it wouldn't be safe to mount the brake that way (short of welding) as recoil could cause the brake to rotate upward around the pin, misaligning the brake with the bore. So if you have an SAR-1, pass on this one and thread the barrel.Otherwise, the quality of this brake appears to be very nice, so if you do happen to have a Russian or Chinese AK that it will fit on, it should work out quite nicely for you."
"I ended up getting a muzzle brake for my ak-47 (wasr-10). It will fit with the cleaning rod if you put a cut in the bottom to fit around the rod. I chose to shave my rod housing off to just slide it on. The first time I shot it it got a little wobbely but I just drilled a hole in the bottom and put in a set screw now it works perfect. I have a bipod on my gun and when I shot rapid fire it would start jumping. With the brake, it just kicks back a little bit. You can still keep target in sights if your good. No jump at all. I even helped a friend put the same thing on his sks. It fit pretty good with set screws. If you want to improve your accuracy and reduce recoil I highly suggest getting a brake."

"I would have to agree with most buyers on this one. This ak47 pin on muzzle break cant be for an ak? I have a russian 7.62-39 and it was so big it went over my barrel, and i could not find someone that was able to make it work! I took apart my ak, tried many ways just to make it fit and there was still no way, i dont know how others have made it work in the past,cause it doesnt stand for an ak47? I sent it back and had to settle for the custom flash hider. I wouldnt recomend this for anybody with an ak."

"I tried this on a MAK 90. It was a good, tight fit but the notch didn't line up with the front sight pin (either one) so I didn't pin it. My first shot blew the thing off and about 15 yards down range. It did give a good, heavy feel to the barrel though. Too bad there was no way (short of drilling another hole in the front sight base) to secure it."
"Excelent brake, fits very snug and pins in place very nicely on my norinco. pin could be of higher quality(recomend set with brass punch to avoid mushroming) but that was no big deal to replace. I think this is a quality product at an good price. and for those of you who can't read(AK lover) this is not ment for an AK 74, but that should go without saying."
"i have the russian saiga 7.62x39. it will not even come close to fitting without some major re-fabricating. it is way to big for the barrel, and it won't even go back as far as where the sight is pinned on..i fabricate for a living, so i'll have to cut the coller off,make a new one and weld it back on and then it should work good. a lot of work for something that they said would fit a russian model"

"after refabbing this break to finally fit. it was a big waste of time. i did not notice any differance in the recoil nor the muzzle jump at all. i took it off and threw it out."

"Fits my MAK-90, WELLMADE EASY TO INSTALL FIT IS GREAT"
"I would have given this part zero bullets if they'd let me. The part was an easy if a little sloppy fit on my MAK-90, but was good tight fit when pinned. But it was visibly crooked once installed! The muzzle on the brake was visibly out of alignment with the bore and did not/would not line up no matter what I did. Very unsafe. After several unsuccessful attempts to get a proper fit and alignment, I took it off and threw it away. Could be that the pin hole on my front sight post is not square, but I'm thinking the it is the quality control or lack thereof of the part that is the issue. This is a classic case of you get what you pay for."
"Didn't really think that it would fit on my MAK-90, but I bought it anyway. After punching out the pin on the front sight, it slid in with a little work. Fits very snug and shoots really well. For the money, I think it's a great alternative to a permanet screw in muzzle break."
"I purchased one for my .223 NHM-90. The install turned out to be work intensive. Leaving my rifle \"as is\" would have been just fine but it's on and solid now."
"DID NOT FIT. I have a standard Romanian AK-47, flat barrel, nonthreded. this muzzle did not fit! i'm a little disapointed.. but at least i didn't spent a lot of money on it..."

"I bought this to be used on a MAK 90. The muzzle brake went on very snug and is there securely. Shot about 30 rounds through it afterward with no problems."
"Bought this for my MAK-90. The biggest problem was getting the front sight pin out but afterwards there was no problem putting it on or getting the pin through. looks great!"
"I read the reviews on this part over and over, and because it only had a 2 1/2 bullet rating, deliberated over my choice. In the end, the guys that said it fits Russians and Chinese (MAK-90) perfectly stuck out in my head the most. Having a MAK90 I ordered it with my fingers crossed. I just installed and shot it tonight and it is PERFECT!!! The install literally took me 60 seconds with the right tools (1/8 brass punch & rubber mallet). I went out back and put thirty rounds through her and she purred. GREATLY reduced muzzle climb. If you have a MAK-90 don't hesitate! It fits snug and precise and looks cool to boot!"
"I would have given this a 5 bullet rating but I did have to do a little bit of filing to get this to fit on my MAK90. Not much of a problem but it took me about 15 minutes of careful filing to get it to slide on with a bit of tapping with a rubber mallet.Looks good now that it is on and pounding the old pin out of the front sight wasn't much of a chore after putting some penetrating oil on it the night before the install. Haven't shot it yet so I cant report on how well it works but it went on straight and there is definitely no chance of it coming off. Now for a quick tack weld and all set to go."
"Ordered one of these for my MAK-90 since it said it would fit a chinese AK-47. It did not fit very well at all, it was way too tight, and ended up scratching the blue off the tip of my barrel and off the sides of the front sight as well. When I finally got it to line up with the hole in the front sight after banging hard on it with a mallet, there was still a noticeable gap in front of the sight base. It also looked every so slightly crooked as if a round might touch one side of it, so I knocked it back off and threw it away. Now I have to re-blue the front of my barrel. Very disappointed..."
"Ordered this for my MAK-90. Easy to install. Snug fit, make sure you don,t forget to swap the pins out to keep it in place. Put several hundred rounds through after without any problems"
"This brake will not fit a Romanian AK-47 with an unthreaded barrel. Also the one I got was bored off center, would have been extremely dangerous to shoot. Very poor quality workmanship."
"Ordered this for my Norinco Ak-47. It's so far from any kind of a decent fit, I can't believe it. Even with careful filling and using a dremel, it still doesnt fit. Very dissapointed."
"It was very difficult to get the pin out. I recommend using the WD40 to soak it overnight and then hammer the frack out of it. After, slide in (use rubber mallet) to position it and re-install using the longer pin. Perfect fit for MAK 90. Oh, I haven't shot it yet because it's too cold outside.p.s. I wished they made pin removal plate like AR15."

"Put one of these on a Norinco MAK. Took about two minutes to install. Used a 1/8\" punch to drive out the pin. Tapped on the brake with a plastic mallet and drove in the longer pin. Fit nice and snug."

"Put one on my Norinco MAK90 and it was a very precise easy fit.Took 15 min taking my time. My MAK is the one with what looks like very fine threads on the barrel but what they are is grooves to increase the surface area and aid in cooling.I think it helped but it had been a while since I fired this gun and put the brake on without testing first. To the best of my memory it helped quite a bit."
"Purchased this and it will not fit my SA-85M. Tried everything I could think of and it will not go on. I found someone to thread the barrel for me so I will just put a screw on muzzle brake on."

"I bought this muzzlebrake but i ws not very happy with it. After i cut a slot in the bottom of it so that it would clear the cleaning rod. The brake fit tight but the counterbore in the center that aligns the muzzlebrake was off center so it made it crooked. Not the best muzzlebrake but CTD offers better ones at close to the same great price."

"I bought this thinking is could be adapted to my Saiga 7.62 x 39 withut much work. I WAS WRONG. Had to remove the front sight and cut the sleeve off the front. Then discovered I could have done it a little easier using a tubing or pipe cutter. It was a huge pain to get the sight off then back on. Finally got the brake modified and pinned on and it looks good. Haven't tried it out. Do not buy unless you are pretty handy or have one of the ready fit guns described."
"This fit my stamped Chinese Mak-90 like a glove. It looks like it always belonged there. Yes, it's a bit snug, but that is definitely by design. A few firm taps from a rubber mallet and it is done. The only \"nit\" is that the replacement pin provided is oversized by a few thousands. I assume this is to take into account the variation in AK sight blocks. A few strokes with a fine arkansas stone was all it took to get a good fit."
"I bought the muzzle brake last week. When I first got it I did notice it had some metal shavings still stuck on the inside. I'm assuming from the holes being drilled. I had to file those down to give it a clean finish on the inside to avoid a round from hitting those. As far as the install it was fairly easy taking all of 5 minutes. I am a little disappointed that the pin they included was too big for my MAK 90. The holes themselves didn't seem to line up. So I just used a bubber mallot and smacked that sucker on there. It's a very snug fit, so I doubt even without it being pinned that it's going anywhere. It would have received 5 bullets, but because of the condition I recieved it. Also the fact the pin didn't fit, but as far as looks, pretty sweet!"
"I bought two of these. I have MAK 90s in both 7.62x39 and .223/556. The fit was super tight for both. I tapped them both on with a mallet and drove in the longer pins in no problems. I haven't fired either rifle since but I'm quite sure it will be a long long time before these start to develop and play if ever at all. I'm sure they will work to reduce muzzle flip just fine. They really do look nearly identical to the brake on my AK74 so I'm confident it should work about as good too"
– works great
"If you have a Mak-90 without a threaded barrel this is a must have. I am not so sure about the other AK variants but for the Mak-90 this is a perfect snug fit and it lines up with the barrel perfect. Just pop out the forward pin on your front sight and tap on the muzzle brake until it lines up with the pin hole and replace the pin. It took me about 3 minutes, easy as pie. Not a single complaint."
"I bought this for my Mac-90 and it really gave it the look I was after. After fighting the stupid front sight pin and installing it, I noticed a little bit of wobble. Not the best fit but was tollerable. After about 200 rounds and allowing the barrel to heat up and cool down, the brake wobbled like crazy. You shake the gun and it rattled so bad, it made the gun feel cheap and sloppy. It might be that the metal is different or something, but after it was heated it was nothing but garbage."

"Just tried this out. It fit well, looked like it would work. It does reduce the recoil but the iron sights are way off. I took it off and went back to stock out of laziness, but you'll otherwise have to bring up your front sight. It's going to require tuning on stock Norincos. After removing went back to hitting 6\" diameter target with simple iron sights from good distance. These rifles are never meant to knock wings off a fly, but you got 30-80 rounds to push through quickly to make up the difference."
"Bought this for my Chinese Norinco BWK-92I did have to fight a little bit to get it on but with a rubber mallet it eventually lined up with the front sight. I read the post about the metal shavings inside... sure enough there were plenty. A file and 5 minutes took care of that. The gun looks so much better. I don't really notice a reduction in recoil but thats not really what I got it for. I got it because it is an inexpensive modification that really helped my gun standout.Even though everything felt solid and lined up great, I was still nervous about the brake loosening because of the increasing and decreasing heat of the barrel at the muzzle-end.I fired the first 10 rounds slow, and was sure to check the alignment of the brake after every one of the rounds. Time went on and now I have put at least 2,500 rounds past the brake with no problem at all. I at least anticipated that the pin would slowly become loose and try to find its way out of the front sight but it hasn't. Everything (brake, front site, pin) is still in the exact position it was in after I installed it. This was a great purchase and if I buy another non-threaded AK I will be sure to give this brake a try on it."
"This was put on my MAK-90. As with another review here it fit perfectly snug at first. After shooting with heating/cooling it now wobbles. I'm sure with a bit of tinkering it could work, and may work fine with some rifles. For the price it may be worth a try. Aside from looks and deafening noise being deflected backwards; I didn't notice any 'performance gain'."
"Bought this for my MAK-90. Took almost an hour to get this thing on my barrel. First off the pin they provided to fasten this brake on didn't fit my rifle. After some work at filling it down it finally fit. Took it out for some shooting and lost it somewhere in the desert after 15-20 rounds. Now I'm left with a scratched up barrel and back to square one. It may have been my poor installing skills but I have done similar builds and have never had such a hard time with a muzzle brake. Over all super frustrating and not worth the hassle."
"Bought this for my mag 90 norinco chinese made. It fit perfect. It took me about 15 minutes to got it done. Just remove the pin, tap the muzzle brake in, replace the pin comes with it, then done. I went out and shot about 200 rounds through it. No rattle or loosing at all. it still tight and looking good. Loving it. It does not need any filing for my Mag 90 Norinco. Fit perfect. Thanks CTD."

"This muzzle brake is the best for the money! It cuts out a lot of the flash and cut the recoil down on my Norinco NHM-91 by like 60-70%. The only problem with it was that it needed a little bit of metal to be taken off before it would go on. And the Chinese like to weld stuff on... But the brake is AWESOME!!!"
"Muzzle brake fits good and tight and does not get loose when firing the rifle.This works well with the mak-90. Took 10 min toput on using a punch for the pin and rubber mallet to tap on the brake -a great buy!!!"
"Disappointed with fit as it slid on and wobbles around. Will have to spot weld it on. Haven\uFFFDt shot it so don't know if it reduces recoil or not."
