vain as it sounds, im tired of that damn corn cob pipe sticking to the end of my M14 barrel. Does anyone have any info on different muzzle devices. I am aware of ops inc, SA inc, SEI devices.

How about the Chi Com fake flash hider? Looks like a USGI but the slots aren't cut all the way thru.

Gruning Precision will turn a USGI flash hider into a fake flash hider, but they want $100 to do it.

Unfortunately YHM doesn't make a muzzle brake for the M14/M1A. Putting a flash suppressor on an M14/M1A would convert it into an assault weapon.

ooops. I got ahead of myself in an effort to help and I realized I was referencing the wrong rifle. I removed my post. :(

he just puts a sleeve in it. I'm sure he does a precise job, but how precise does it have to be? he might be right, but IMHO
it does not look that much better to me that the fake Chinese model, which are about $30.00 total.

the SEI is not as loud to me as the SA, Inc. model, and is a bit shorter. I think the SEI looks a bit better, too.

You would think that someone would produce a better looking break? I don't mind the SA INC, but it is a face only a mother could love. :p

I have used the Smith brakes for quite a while, They look decent. Not really sure they are a great muzzle brake. But they do look better than the SA unit.

As an FYI Smith is sold out of them for 3-4 weeks.

the M-14 guys seem to love the Smith and say that's its the most effective muzzle brake out there - several receent posts about these over here m-14forum.com

I have been using the Smith brakes since about 2000, I have had them on about six different rifles without complaint. I have another coming on my Crazy Horse Polytec that Smith is building for me since I live in the PRK. I think they look great but when shooting a smith brake rifle then a standard flash hider equiped m1a I dont really feel much difference though.

Im my opinion, the M14 does not recoil that much to begin with, as compaired to a 7.62x51mm (.308) bolt gun.

True... I'd like to see more "flash hider but not a flash hider" devices for these guns. Probably not gonna happen with the federal AWB sunset.

Where can a guy find one? I haven't been able to turn up any sources online.

Nah, I don't care about the "brake" part of it. The SA brake is highly annoying to other shooters on the line, it's not necessary for service rifle competition, and it looks ridiculous. I was going to have Gruning fix a USGI flash hider for me but never got around to coming up with the $100.

post a WTB at amback and M14-forums. problem solved.

Or, I suppose I can sell you the one I have for $30 shipped, that's gotta be what I have in it.

You have a Smith USCG M14 brake for $30? I'll take it. I work in Walnut and will drive or I can paypal you.

Does anyone have a photo of the gruning prec M14 flash sup with sleeve?

Someone posted a photo at battlerifles.com quite a while back. I can't find it now. delloro, I might be interested in taking that Chinese FH off your hands - let me know if you do have it.

I purchased one of the chinese faux flash suppressors and have found it very difficult to mount on a usgi barrel - couldn't even force it in. One of these days I will try and get it in by softly hammering it with a block of wood, but for now the smith brake is just fine - fits easily like a glove! Anyone else have this problem?
