Oh hey this is cool, they gave me the option to decide whether or not I want to reply to a thread that's more than 33 days old.
Muzzle brakes are not commonly used in the military except for high caliber, shoulder fired weapons such as the .50 BMG and .338 Lapua sniper rifles. They do a great job of taming recoil, and it is needed on those weapons. Common muzzle devices for lighter recoiling small arms is a simple flash suppressor.
