    Which aftermarket brakes or comps are you all using on your 7.62 MVP'?

    Thanks for all the suggestions... Actually I'm gonna end up using a brake that'll accept a can as I'm submitting a form 4 next week.

    I use a modified Barret M468 brake on my Savage 308. It was meant for the barret 6.8SPC M4's but if you open the spout just a little bit it does a great job and is ultra light and compact. On others I tend to recommend JP Recoil eliminator if you can deal with the blast or a Dean Maisey Tresamax. Dean's brakes are tested and demonstrated to reduce recoil more than just about any other brake. The 20 dollar cheapies from amazon and ebay I've tried and they begin eroding very quickly as well as not working that well thanks to ridiculously generous clearance to the bullet at the baffles. The steel they use (all of them I've tried) is not appropriate to muzzle brakes.

    Since OP is going the suppressor route, AAC 18T or 51T. I've shot those recently and they're really good brakes and not insanely expensive considering they're a suppressor mount too.

    I've read good things about the JP Recoil Eliminator but they are so huge! Nothing against them, they have their place.

    True that, they are just enormous. They do make a more traditionally sized brake that's also very effective.

    I got a real good chance to run my YHM today. I like it very much. I can shoot the rifle all day now and not think anything about it. It brakes well and does a nice job minimizing the muzzle rise. It's a LOUD SOB but you get that from a muzzle break.

    I don't care about recoil, but am concerned with muzzle flash on my Patrol 7.62. Going with the Smith Enterprise Vortex.

    Did you want something fancier than the A2 that came with it or were you looking for some brake qualities but flash reduction was more important?

    I wanted something more effective at flash suppression than the bird cage and don't care about any brake or compensator functions at all.

    In my school I pretty much see a bit of everything come through. I've found the SEI Vortex and AAC Blackout to be most effective at flash suppression.

    Ok, cool. I've heard the Vortex does a very good job.

    I was going to buy the Miculek Brake but he's been out of stock for a while so I said screw it and ordered one that looked very similar from Amazon a 3 chamber simple brake with two ports drilled in the top for a bit of compensation. Price was right that's for sure. My first use with it was at a practical rifle competition and I was impressed with it especially for the cost.

    I just put on a Lantec Dragon.

    I know they are mostly meant for AR style rifles... but it does a very nice job taming recoil and muzzle rise.

    Feels like a .223 sounds like a .50 :p

    Plus I like how it looks ;) :( :eek: :oops: ;) :( :cool:
