    Best brake is a suppressor, IMHO. I get a SilencerCo Chimera in on Tuesday, should pair nicely with a DeadAir Keymount and 15x1RH flash hider.

    There is something about M15x1 that it doesn't support much for muzzle brakes, only flash hiders. Something about not being able to seat firmly against the thread shoulder on that specific spec? A muzzle brake is keyed, a flash hider isn't.

    Not an HK, but getting my 338 Lapua back on Weds and have a Harvester Big Bore. So we'll see if my suppressor theory holds.

    "Effective" for me is recoil reduction. That one from HK Parts does look interesting, anyone here tried one?

    I already have a can for one, but multiple rifles mean more stuff, eh?

    I use one on a 51 (308) YES honestly really makes a noticeable difference in felt recoil BUT you won't make friends with your fellow shooters. Being it has the proper lock spring I move from the 51 to the 91 easily
    My personal observations on my 51 and 91
    Deffently reduced felt recoil but since I have also added a Bill Springfield buffer and a HK heavy rubber butt pad on both my 308's
    Makes a great fireball. If I can't hit-um I'll blind-um on the 51. A little more flash on the 91
    Unbelievable concussion (51)to my fellow shooters. Pisses them off. Love it. Noticeable louder on the 91
    Well worth the price for plug & play

    If you can find one available...

    The Fabian Brothers muzzle brake / FH devices work incrediblely well...

    I have a few in my stash along with three mounted on several 90 series platforms...

    Recoil and muzzlejump is most of all enhanced by the too low buttplate and the too long stock.
    With a proper stock you Will hardly notice the difference betwen std buffer and heavy buffer.
    Of course heavy buffer is still to be preferred as it saves the gun.
    But a muzzlebrake without swopping stock is like a really good 4 wheel drive with low profile tires.....

    Here is my explanation

    I went with one of these: https://www.robertrtg.com/store/pc/M...DE-38p3509.htm
    It made a huge difference as far as I am concerned. I used to have a couple of M1a's and I tried a number of devices for those before I settled on the US Navy/Coastguard break. The Manticore is very similar and I have been very happy with it.

    +1! Got them on my V51 & V53. The Noveske “pig” is another great option. (One of my sub-collection interests are 15x1 and 3 lug muzzle devices.)
