AK-47 (AKM) Muzzle Device Flash Signature Test









I took a few AK muzzle devices out to the range at night to see how much muzzle flash each would produce with Golden Tiger 124gr FMJ ammo. The muzzle devices were:

-Krebs Custom Birdcage
-Damage Industries Brake
-CNC Warrior 4 Piece
-Yankee Hill Phantom
-Tapco Slot Device
-K-Var "AK 74" Brake

Top two at reducing muzzle flash were the CNC Warrior and Yankee Hill Phantom. The Krebs Birdcage wasn't too far behind....

Here's the video showing the results so you can see for yourself:

Good comparison video.

Can you try this on an AK pistol?

I like it!

Could you add a Vortex AK-47/AKM Flash Suppressor from Smith Enterprise to your list?

Thanks

I'd be interested to hear your review of the Tapco AK Slot compensator as a compensator. I was surprised at how effective it is, making my 7.62x39 feel like my 5.45x39.
