Any benefit from a muzzle brake on a 5.56 AR will be fleeting at best (unless you shoot for the money). The hearing damage will build up insidiously, and will last. Considering the imperfect hearing protection (let's be honest), I have given up on muzzle brakes for that reason alone.

Forget the brake. Get a compensator. A brake reduces recoil, a compensator reduces muzzle rise, which is what will keep you on target. I've got a brake/comp, which helps with both. I understand what you're wanting, because I wanted the same thing. I've never used one, but for the price everyone says the Miculek Compensator is really nice.

Cool, thanks guys for the feedback! I guess $20 for a compensator isn't too bad if I don't like it...

I bought one of these when they had them for $29.95 with free shipping . It works great , most all of my stuff is the standard A2 except my SBRs .
This one works well for keeping the dot on the target firing multiple rounds quickly . It looks almost identical to the Benny Cooley from JP

Looks similar to the Miculek too. 199$ though? I think the link you provided may be something different. Or the ebay seller became extremely confident in his product haha

Try to find a levang linear compensator. Lowers muzzle jump and puts most of the objectionable noise forward. Noticeable reduction in muzzle flip on my rifle. Not sexy looking, just pure function...
