Default Muzzle Break Types

What Ak muzzle break is nicest? Rpk? Slant? Birdcage? Most accurate and recoil reducer?

It's pretty much all about personal preference & which one looks the best to you. They don't do much for accuracy improvement or for recoil reduction. The slant style is the 'classic' Russian AK look.
Mine is the Tapco Razr....

I always get the ones with the nasty sharp spike edges on them just in case it goes close quarters and no ammo! We called them apple peelers as in Adam's apple.

The best for recoil reduction would be the AK74 style, it helps the accuracy too.

The AK does not recoil. I replaced my slant brake with a birdcage flash hider.

I put that on my WASR after I cut off the muzzle nut. Figured it made more sense than the slant brake and I knew I'd get laughed off the range if I got an A2 birdcage. Tapco's is cheap and looks good.
