I'm not a fan of my brake on my 7.62x39 ar. Way to much flash. So I've been looking and sort of have it narrowed down.
Efab hybrid brake
Pws fsc
Or
A flash hide with a linear comp/blast shield/ etc.

What are your thoughts?

plain A2 flash hider (ak version) for flash.

otherwise EFAB hybrid is a good compromise.
PWS FSC will have some flash, and is super loud.

How's the noise with the efab?

Maybe try a griffin armament flash comp in 14x1 lh?

Efab isn't loud at all.

What about a battlecomp?

From some of the reports I saw online (which were for 5.56) the battle comp performed a hair better on recoil, but not nearly as good for flash as the efab, and the battle comp babc is more expensive

on the griffin flash comp or flash suppressor I was thinking maybe the flash or combo + a blast shield might be interesting to reduce flash and throw the noise downrange. Couldn't find many reports on effectiveness of the flash suppressor and shield combo, the report all talked about the brake + shield and the brake + shield didn't seem that great

this 2 tests of ~70 brakes / FH is on AR, but you should get an idea how effective some of the brakes are:

This is what got me to narrow down my choices. If the fsc is much louder than the efab I'm going efab over fsc, so that info is awesome because I didn't see that anywhere. There is not much info on the efab online, but what I've seen is positive

There's also this one for flash hiders which lead me to think the efab is in my mind better than the battle comp as I'd like a little more flash hider while giving up a small bit up brake

Very good test. Includes sound meter. Technically it is a 7.62 :)
