    Question about AK-74 muzzle brake

    Sorry if this is a dumb question. I have never shot an AK-74. Does the muzzle brake help eliminate the flash from your line of sight? I heard people say the Ak-74 brake produces a bright flash in low light. The primary night vision scope for the AK-74 is the NSPU. If the Ak-74 produces a bright flash at night, wouldn't that shut off your night vision scope?

    The brake might help deflect the flash out to the sides, but it won't really do much of anything to reduce it.



    That guy, he said I should be oblong and have my knees removed. But I don't trust him, he plays the banjo.

    the brake does not attenuate flash much. it was intended for full auto fire to keep the muzzle rise to a minimum to increase second and subsequent rounds hit probability.

    Does anyone know if the Ak-74 brake's flash would shut off a NSPU night vision scope?
