"Fits great on my Romanian AK. Excellent product as always from Tapco."

"Easy install once i got the old ak nut off the barrel. I have a WASR-10 and the original nut was welded on. I had to use the dremel tool with a cutting wheel to get through the weld. Once this was done the rest was easy. As for shooting, the break does everything it's supposed to."

"I had to do the exact same that Levi had to do.that was ten times harder to do than the instilation itself. It looks great and functions well. I chose the 7-10 buisness day shipping and it was in my mailbox in 4 days. Another great experiance with cheaper than dirt."

"As usual with most Tapco products, this is a good muzzle brake. Mine installed on the WASR in about ten seconds, great fit and match. Good price, too."

"I got this to replace a slant-cut brake Century Arms stuck on my Romanian GP WASR-10|63 import. It went on very easy, just make sure you give it a good last turn. Some people complain it wobbles but that's because they only hand tightened it, you have to grab some pliers and a rag (to cover it if you don't want to scratch it) then give it about another 1/4 turn until it clicks into the slot.I fired single shots: Recoil's the same but \"jumping\" is improved.I fired burst shots: It doesn't climb as much as the slant cut or no brake on it at all.If you auto-fire or bump-fire: You'll still see the reduced jump but, dynamically speaking, it translates into reduced \"walk\" ... but then again, you're not going to dot \"I's\" with an AK.Overall good stuff. I give it 5 bullets because there has been no reason to give it any less. This thing's either going to work or it's not, and for me it did."

"Brake installed in less than 1 minute and locked up tight on my Bulgarian AK47. Found the brake to be more effective than the slant cut brake on target, although it does give my AK an \"Americanized\" look. But rather have an effective rifle than one that looks good."

"The worst part of this was that some \"person\" tack welded the original tip onto my WASR-10, maybe part of the old ban or something. Also ground the ears off my bayonet lug, but that's another story. This went on just as designed, and looks just fine. Another great deal."

"It is wonderful, fits great and looks great. I'm happy. It fit on my high quality Lancaster arms AKM with no problems and Lancasters are alot better guns than a WASR."

"Bought this for my WASR-10, fit on in 3 seconds. Great add on for your AK. Tested it out at the range with 200 rounds and problem. I bought 2 more for my Lancaster and I.O. Inc. AK-47. Buy it. You will be happy with it."

"Great product, fits way better than the stock slant style brake on my U.S. made AK47, and looks and feels more sturdy. Flash and muzzle rise are reduced better also. Gives the gone a nicer more agressive Americanized AR/M4 look also which is better, in my opinion anyway. Very well made product, definately recommend to all AK owners whether for asthetic or functional reasons. AK all the way!!"

"This is a well made frash hider. It is 1 1/2 inches long and adds 1 inch to the overall length of my Drako Ak pistol. With 5 locking notches it is easy to get a nice tight lockup. While I have not fired any rounds yet, it looks good and not too AR15 like."

"Love this Muzzle break for my American made AK it works great and looks good to. I took it out the first night at low light just before the sun was down fully and man what a difference it made compaired to the slant style. I say buy it it's so worth the money!"

"Am I the only one who had a problem with this muzzle brake? I have a Chinese MAK-90 (post ban- bayonet lug ground off). I bought this muzzle brake to equalize the pressure release when fired. I have a 14:1 left hand twist threads at the muzzle of my AK. I bought the AK Slot muzzle brake AKS-052 and it mounted perfectly, but the \"slot\" is turned to the side, which I do not like. So I bought this muzzle brake to relace that one. The one I received did not fit the threads on my AK. The muzzle brake was too big and did not \"screw\" on at all. It will go on the muzzle, but it will not screw on, but hangs loosley on the muzzle. I am very disappointed."

"The name says it all nice brake less rise, less flash, does what it's suppose to. It fit my Romanian AK perfectly, and installed in about 10 seconds. I would recommend to anyone. Thanks CTD."

"The laws of physics must be a little different where I shoot than where everyone else who left a review shoots. I got four brakes and four ak's and compared them. I had a muzzle nut, a slant brake, the tapco slot muzzle brake, and this one. This brake actually made the muzzle rise and recoil worse than with only the muzzle nut. I don't mean a little worse, I'm talking very noticeable. It effected my Draco pistol the most making it almost impossible to control. This product is a total POS do not waste your money! On the other hand the tapco slot brake was fantastic."

"I put this on my WASR-10. It needs thread locker to keep from wobbling. The ports are too small to reduce recoil effectively."

"This brake looks very slick and well made. Went on very easy, though you may have to go one more click to keep tight. Didn't really reduce the recoil that much. But over all I'm satisfied."

"It wasn't my first choice, but CTD was sold out of the one I wanted. Settled for this one, and turns out, it's a nice muzzle brake after all. Reduces the flash more than it does the recoil, but it looks great on my gun (WASR-10), that's why it still gets 4 bullets in my book. Doesn't screw down enough to catch the last pin, but if you know anything about anything, you should be able to get it to work no problem."

"Very easily installed on my WASR GP 10/63. Remember: with this break, it's LEFTY TIGHTY and RIGHTY LOOSY, unlike the standard threads. Helps dampen recoil compared to the thread protector that came stock on my rifle. Also redirects more sound towards the shooter, so bring plugs!"

"Doesn't reduce recoil but will control muzzle flash, and even muzzle rise if indexed correctly so the top will vent more gas."

"This muzzle break I believe to be an improvement to the original slanted muzzle break. Although it doesn't aid much in recoil, it does hide the flash. To me, recoil isn't much of an issue with my AK anyway. So it does great hiding flash. Nice muzzle break, worth the money."

"If your looking to reduce muzzle climb or recoil don't buy this brake. Does reduce the flash a little, but if your looking to reduce muzzle climb I would try a nice forward grip on your AK. That helped me control my firearm and stay on target. Other than that the looks of this brake is small and very sleek, and still well made. I hope this helps you out!"

"Good product. Went on easily and fits fairly well. It is a little loose once attached, but nothing to get upset about. If you're that concerned, you could weld it on, assuming you're content with the style and performance. I fired 90 rds through my WASR 10/63 and didn't notice a problem. Really makes the AK barrel look more intimidating and distributes the excess gases well. Doubt if it reduces recoil, but it definitely reduces flash. I want to buy the slant muzzle brake and do a comparison analysis of the two."
