"I bought this for my SOP-MOD AK project and fitted it to my Century Romanian WASR-10/63. The threading of this muzzle device was almost a perfect match and it installed easily without tools. The muzzle brake has three indexing slots to allow the user to tighten it all way in and to lock the plunger detent to the closest slot when tightened. The muzzle brake copies the M16A1 birdcage style flash hider with six equally space ports. Mine fit with very little wobble unlike the original slant brake my rifle came with. If you want a tactical AK look this muzzle brake will given it that extra cool factor without costing an arm or a leg. Try it you won't be disappointed."

"Went right on my Polish underfo;der kit build that I bought from CTD a few years back. Looks good and gives it a little more modern Tactical look in my opinion. Good purchase so far however I havent gotten any range time with it yet, that report will be coming soon. I dont suspect any dissatisfication will be had though."

"This product was a quick, easy fit to my Romanian WASR 10/63 CAI. Looks more beefy and a great add to the weapon. Two issues though, the bayonet must be in place before the muzzle brake is set into place, a little inconvinient. The muzzle brake does not reduce flash. Overall for the price I would recommend for the cool look it adds."

"I gave this product a 4-Bullet Rating ONLY because the Pin cannot be put back in correctly. Overall it will work nicely on Romanian 'Draco pistols, Mak-90's ect., and looks good too. I put it on by left hand screwing (but the weld must be cut 1st, Before pin removal). About other AK varients, Yes, it will work on MAK-90's too, even if the bayonet lug has been removed (As stated by another reviewer). I am currently awaiting for the Tapco muzzle break, Item# AKS-048 , which will let you put the pin back in after locking it down. I am sure it will work as well, and if so, I shall rate it a 5-bullet rating if it goes on as easy as this one did (AKS-510) > > > Anyway, it is all good at Cheaper_Than_Dirt and Tapco. The OutRider"

"I got two of these and put one of these on my Draco after cutting off the barrel nut. I put the other one on my M70 Yugo, and didn't like it as much, but it was still better than the slant brake. There are 3 notches cut in for the pin, so it you can get them pretty tight. No modifications necessary."

"Just went right on my WASR-10/63 without a hitch, and looks disco on my rifle. Much much larger than the AR type bayo, and will not fit with this but who cares."

"Excellent fit and function for my Romanian AK variant. The stock slant brake worked fine, but this piece looks better in my opinion. Seated and pin locked all the way down. TIP: I would recommend a tiny drop of oil on the threads to aid in installation. Another quality U.S. made TAPCO product and another happy CTD customer."

"I bought this Flash suppressor for my Ak Wasr 10 cause when I bought my Ak it came with the half cut one. It not only looks nice it shoots great and was so easy to install! I recomend it to anyone who wants to add a nice look to there Ak and for the price you cant beat it."

"Screwed on in seconds. Looks very nice. Only drawbacks are you cannot put the bayonet on, because the muzzle flairs out too much and the original slant break reduces muzzle climb better. Other than that it is awsome."

"This doesn't do much for recoil, but it's not meant too. My wasr came without any break of any kind and still was a pleasure to shoot. I'll never complain about the recoil of 7.62x39 in a carbine sized weapon, it's just not enough to worry about at all. Does a nice job of keeping the gas flare out of the way of my optics, which means faster follow up shots. It does what it's supposed to do."

"I have a Century Arms Romanian 1975 bullpup and it fit this gun perfectly. It works better then the factory flash suppressor. This is a good product. I am very happy and pleased."

"This is a great add on for a AK-47. Not only does it make the gun look more of this day and age, but it works well, also. I have shot side by side AK-47s with and without a slant break and this is far better. You will get a noticeable reduction in recoil and much less flash. The only downside is that it is harder to clean, and harder to screw on and off (at least for WASR 10 rifles). After a few times it gets much faster, but the first few hurt the fingers to screw on. A+ and a must have."

"I put this muzzle brake on and my groups went down to about 1/8 inch at 60 yard with iron sights. The slant brake that the gun came with just was not cutting it. This is an awsome upgade for my WASR-10."

"I am very happy with my purchase of this flash suppressor it looks great on my Wasr 10/63 reduces flash very well doesn't reduce recoil though but recoil's not bad anyway. Did make it a lot louder though and went on like a glove very easy to install I'd suggest to anybody looking for a flash suppressor you won't regret it"

"Fits great, looks great, price is great. Installed on AK Drako pistol and it looks awesome. Have not fired it yet with this, but it did OK before. If nothing else it made the gun look better."

"Just got it today and installed this afternoon. Have not had chance to fire weapon with this on. I have a Draco 47 pistol and did not have any problem before getting this. If nothing else it helped the looks something like 147%. I have a secret formula for computing percentage increase. The Draco has a small weld on the bottom of the barrel nut, take a dremel to it with a sanding or cutting type disk and make short work of the weld, then unscrew the barrel nut ( turn clockwise to loosen ) while pushing in on the little pin right above the barrel ( 2 people make this a lot easier ) and remove and place the new brake. Really like it, and a very good price."

"I usually don't like Tapco but, this fits perfectly on both my Romy 10-63's. The notch is in just the right spot on both where the pin clicks right as the threads are tight."
