So, I got this for my rifle because I wanted to change the look of my AK pistol, and wasn't a fan of the Krink style. I was a little worried my rifle wouldn't cycle well because of the lack of dwell time, but it runs great. I suppose that's more a comment on the rifle than the brake though. The brake looks awesome. Kind of my my short little guy look like a bull dog. The recoil is also super light, but be prepared to shoot flames like you've never seen before. I knew it would, seeing as how it's a 10.5" 7.62, but man, I didn't know how much. For my purposes, I love it, because for me, this is just a fun little range toy, however, if you're doing any night time shooting, especially under NVGs, or you plan to use it indoors, around other people, or in any sort of defensive situation, you can decide if it's right for you. It really does blind you for a split second, but man, it's fun!
