    Best Muzzle Brake?

    What would you recommend for the most controllable/best muzzle brake that doesn't hit the shooter with much more, if any, muzzle blast than a non-braked rifle (I know, I want my cake and to eat it too).

    I don't know what the difference is between a brake and a comp, and I am by far NOT the expert on this, but i would imagine it depends on what your situation/expectations are.

    FWIW-
    I'll let you know how my FSC556 works out when i get my upper back from gotm4.
    The FSC556 is a flash suppressing version of the DNTC comp.

    HERE is a video of Dave Neth shooting a 14" M4 one handed, with the DNTC comp.

    I'm sure some of the more experienced people here will have a much better answer, and be a lot more technical too.

    How do these compare to the Miculek? Reason I ask is that I live 30 minutes from Clarks.

    If you're looking for a target shooting brake, I had a JP on my National Match. It was huge and heavy and wickedly effective. If you're looking to equip an M4, You have a lot of choices out there. YHM's seem to be decent, Izzy's will make you enemies of range buddies, the Miculek seemed to be nicely made and effective and I liked the Troy Medieval Flash Suppressor so well, that I decided to get their brake to be compliant here in the PRM....

    I am leaning towards the Miculek due to price and it's simplicity. My dislike about it is the jam-nut. I do not understand how it works at all. I get that I put the nut on first, then the brake, and then I back the nut off the barrel to put it up against the brake. However, I cannot see how to do this without creating a gap between the jam nut and barrel that would scream "fill me with dust and grit so I can rust/mess up the threads".

    http://egw-guns.com/catalog/product_...products_id=93 i've heard good things about these.

    i have a YHM phantom 5m2 brake.
    it's good, looks nice and is very controllable. my AR feels almost like a .22 actually.
    the muzzle blast can be a little harsh if you're in an enclosed range house but it's nothing terrible. for 30 bucks i figure it works.
