    Hello, what's a good budget muzzle brake for the AK? Was looking at the Tapco Razr but looks like it was only a flash hider, but I am wanting a compensator. Looking for anything around $100 and under.

    I was thinking about getting the slant. What I heard, and it's just hearsay because I actually haven't tried it was that the slant sometimes could actually be a little too effective in pushing the rifle back down.

    The regulation slant works best, I can tell you first hand. In a 7.62x39 carbine anyway.

    What is the typical size and screw thread that I need to get for the WASR.

    My buddy that had a WASR was never able to get his factory muzzle device off. Is yours tacked or loose or what?

    It's tacked but a Dremel will fix that

    At least that's what I am hoping I can do. I watch some videos, and it seems very simple to do with the dermal.
    I think the thread is going to be 14x1lh

    I have the slotted on now and I agree the slant works better but I suspect this thread is more about cool than effectiveness :cool:

    Incorrect, as I posted I'm looking for a compensate for felt recoil.
    Correct, of course if I'm going to put an aftermarket parked on I do wanted to look as good as possible

    CNC Warrior makes a AK-74 style muzzle brake that reduces recoil and it fits over the standard 14MMx1MM LH threading typical of a 7.62MMx39MM AK/AKM carbine or rifle.

    https://www.cncwarrior.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=21640

    The AK-74 type muzzle brake is pretty effective. It may not be the absolute best thing you can buy to reduce muzzle climb and recoil, but it's better than a barrel nut (designed to protect the barrel threading) or slant comp (designed to reduce muzzle rise).

    There's a plethora of other options available now, some of which are listed below:

    Arsenal AK-74 muzzle brake (only usable with an adaptor on standard 14MMx1MM LH threading, so far as I know)
    Arsenal AK/AKM muzzle brake (standard on some of their current 7.62MMx39MM)
    BattleComp
    Damage Industries (various brakes)
    DynaComp
    EFFIN-A
    NightBrake
    PWS
    Vortex

    Those are all that I can think of right now, but I'm certain there are others.

    Where and when you buy will obviously affect what you pay, so shop around.
