Default AR 5.56 krinkov muzle device

Has anyone had any experience with these. I just ordered one and can't find anything on them. They seem to be a less expensive version of the Noveske muzzle device.
My intended purpose is to push the sound and concussion out forward, and reduce the muzzle blast.

Is that for your AK pistol? I've never tried it, but looking at the picture, I can't see how this attachment would send the sound forward any more than a naked muzzle would. There are muzzle brakes that are claimed to do it on AR's, and they are debatable at best. Those I have tried, you have to believe to see the difference. Pardon me, I am skeptical about this one.

That is nothing like a Krinkov muzzle device. It appears to be a rip off of a "Pig".

And everything I have seen indicates they are good for about one magazine of ammo and they self destruct

I am Hoping it is a cheaper version of the "pig". That's the use I am looking for. I'll let you know what I find when it comes in!!

Make sure you ALWAYS use eye protection with a generic PIG. They have a reputation for catastrophic failure

Well the verdict is in. I like it!!

I can tell it's the inexpensive version due to the sharp edges, but all the parts are well fit. It reduces perceived muzzle blast and sound. I can shoot with out ear plugs and it doesn't "hurt" my ears. Not that I will do that, but I wanted to get a since of how the brake effected how loud the weapon was to the shooter. I have used the bird cage, and another one that has pencil sized side ports. There is a big difference in perceived sound from both of them.
