All sorts of conflicting info out there. Has anyone tried different brakes on the M92? Do any significantly reduce felt recoil/muzzle rise?

Any AK pistols are relevant here I imagine.

I have a Draco and a M92.
I put a Noveske KX3 (http://noveskerifleworks.com/cgi-bin/imcart/display.cgi?item_id=kx3other&cat=141&page=1&search=&since=&status=&title=) on the Draco. Shooting it before and after showed a reduction in flash and felt recoil.

After:

The M92 is still in it's original condition. As you no doubt know they come without the muzzle detent plunger, roll pin & spring set. I ordered a set from a guy on AK Files (http://www.akfiles.com/forums/showthread.php?t=120717) who makes them and I wanted something different so I went with the Manticore Arms NightBrake (http://www.manticorearms.com/Yugo-M92-NightBrake-available-at-our-DISTRIBUTORS-MA-3000.htm). Like anything else to do with guns these days they are backordered. Since I do not have all the parts I have not yet removed the factory muzzle nut to start the project. I expect it to look something like this.

I intend to refinish and keep the original wood stocks on the M92.

Interesting. So the Noveske, intended as a flash suppressor softens things up? The brake I've been looking at is the US Machine Gun (they sell detent plunger kit too for $13) , which looks like it's all brake, no suppressor (holes everywhere). Suspect it will create big fireball and a lot of noise, but maybe do the trick. Was waffling on the Nighbtrake, but it's nice and compact.

Just curious, why do you want a brake? If anything I would suggest a flash hider. Even with a sling these pistols are not practical for fast follow up shots and it's not like it hurts to shoot the M92.

I'm turning my M92 into a rifle since I actually want a practical firearm. I suggest going the same route, look at fake cans made by Ctrax on akforum if you ever want to make it a rifle.

Cheers, basically, just from watching videos of people shooting them with/without brakes. Without, they really jump, with they just hop; tame it a bit for me and the wife.

Edit: Ah crap, if I ever did that, I'd be wandering into 922r compliance territory, right? It's a completely foreign rifle and I'd have to swap out all manner of parts to make it legal, from what I understand.

Had the manticore flash hider the switched to the brake. It's not like a flash hider on a 10" 7.62 barrel is going to be very effective. So why not get the shot recovery?

I found the brake to be very effective. Combined with sling and a small flashlight that lets me put downward pressure up front, now I don't lose the red dot in recoil and my effective rate of fire is about 2 shots/second at 25 yds.

From what I've seen the Bulgarian style 4-piece flash hiders do a fantastic job, but if I have weight on the barrel, extra length, I want it keeping things more manageable. Just don't see the value of hiding a flash unless you're in combat, and I don't see that happening in the next year or two.

You switched to Manticore brake? Or other brake?

Just picked up the pistolrifle today. The sights are nasty... front sight is sitting off to the left and I don't see yet a way to compensate for that by adjusting rear sight (researching). Plus maybe it's my vision, but I can't do more than focus on the front sight -- forget about aligning rear and front. Maybe if I enlarge the rear sight notch so that it lets a little light through.

That is the best for recoil reduction? (They're out of stock of course)

Front sight is adjustable for windage.

I used the MI flashider/brake. Helped a bit, mainly with the flash. honestly recoil isnt that bad on them...

Make sure you flip down the useless night sight.

I don't know about "the best" but they're pretty good. No flash suppression, just brake. I have one on an AKMS and it works really well.

The conversion to rifle is intriguing. With the fake can mentioned above, not sure it will come in at the proper lengths. 7 inch can on 19 inch weapon... = 26", but, there's like 1/2 of thread right, so you're only at 25.5" on the OAL? Barrel would be 10" + 7" - 1/2" = 16.5", so that seems ok. A solid stock would make the OAL work out fine, but what about a folder? Can you put a folder on this once the can is on?

I've see people weld a 3-4 inch piece of metal at the back of tantals, I'm not sure where you would weld on a pap.

I put the CNC Warrior 4pc brake on my M92, and it's amazing. Cuts recoil by at least 50%, and there is NO muzzle flash at all. Plus that huge cone-shaped hole looks really intimidating.

That could be the permanent ONE. Didn't see any reviews at all for US Machine Gun brake, but it looked like it will do at least some of the trick, so went ahead an ordered it. Will try to remember to come back and post review.

Review of the US Machine Gun M92 muzzle brake:

Will have to try again to make sure, but I noticed no difference whatsoever with it on and with it off. There was a fellow who did a good comparison between two brakes, on youtube, where he actually measured the muzzle rise. Wish someone would do one with most of the popular brakes to see what's really going on.

I shot the M92 without the brake when I first got it, and believe me, the difference is very significant, in recoil but especially in muzzle flash. The 4pc brake turns this into a very manageable weapon.

I use the Manticore nightbrake and its a very effective muzzle brake.
