HIGHTECH Shockwave SKS brake

Has anyone actually used this thing? Used the search function and haven't found anything but I know I saw it in discussion somewhere but no one really knew how it performed...

Well here is the site for the thing:

Supposed "600%" accuracy increase... For sure it will reduce muzzle rise.

9mm vs .45 ACP? The answer is .429

Sounds like a bunch of crap but it looks very nice. I would consider it on mine.

That seems like a solution in search of a problem. I can't imagine that it would increase accuracy 600% in any way shape or form.

I ordered a previous generation brake from them, but they were out of stock and sent me a shockwave instead.

I think it does improve accuracy a tiny bit, very little change in muzzle jump.

The really bad thing is that it's made of some cheap metal and the threads strip out way too easily. I re-drilled and tapped for a larger screw, which did hold up. However I never use it anymore because there is really no point to it. I would never pay full price for it.
