Midwest Industries Two Chamber Muzzle Brake AK-47 Rifle


Welcome back to the channel. I’m Hank Strange. Today, we are doing this really quick video We are testing this brand new Midwest Industries 30 caliber 2 chamber brake. It is actualy for the AK 47, 308 and 223. Check it out on Midwest Industries. I love their accessories. We got on this AK, If I get a full magazine going here… And do the rock in on this American Tactical Imports under folder I can already tell from the testing we’re doing, that I’m getting a lot more control out of it. But it’s obnoxious! So I feel sorry for Cousin Yancy who’s rocking the camera right now. Sorry Cousin Yancy. Very nice. A lot more control. I’m gonna run in the high speed video for you guys. So you can see the difference there. Looking at the footage at 480 frames per second, The slant brake that came with this AK is not too bad There’s a lot of flex and the rifle moves off to the right Now, with the Midwest Industries brake, You can see the rifle go straight back and there’s a lot less flex The concussion however, is way more potent! Behind the trigger I felt like I had more control And my follow up shots came a lot faster. Looking at it in split screen may help illustrated that point better. There’s definitely a characteristic change in the behavior of the rifle With the Midwest Industries brake Versus the slant brake that came with the gun Not to mention in my opinion The two chamber brake just looks better. The only drawback as with a lot of brakes Like this is the concussion. It can be obnoxious to anyone standing To the left or right of the shooter. That’s the price you pay for better performance. You know how that goes. I really like that…I’m liking it right now. Alright. Midwest Industries two chamber 30 Cal brake. There you go. I’m Hank Strange. Peace out.

  1. Cool Brake man. Looks like it does its job well. I am runnin a plain old ak-74 type brake and it does pretty good too. But like that one it has horrible side flash. But does what it is designed to do. Kill  recoil and rise.

  2. Nice vid Hank, thanks. I'm using one of akoperator's zenit dtk-2 on my .308 rifle (with an adaptor) but this one would look better on it.

  3. Hank send me that extra break and I will put it on my Romania G I had built. this way we will be rocking both sides of Florida. side note get ready for the storm.. it should hit Monday night. Richard

  4. Can it be installed so the flash goes up and down rather than side to side? Might reduce some of that concussion bystanders feel.

  5. Great video review with performance characteristics. Not a bad price of a muzzle brake for $39.95 plus shipping from MI.

  6. I NEVER TAKE THE TIME TO POST AFTER WATCHING BUT GOT TO TEL YA I AM A SOUTHERN BOY FROM THE LOWCOUNTRY OF SOUTH CAROLINA. I HAVE HAD A GUN IN MY HANDS BY THE AGE OF 8 LOVE TO SHOT AND LOVE TO HUNT. ALSO I LIKE A STRAIGHT FORWORD DOWN TO EARTH PEASON WHO JUST TELLS IT LIKE IT IS AND LETS THE EQUIPMENT DO THE REST. HANK I DO NOT ALLOW MANY INTO MY WHEEL HOUSE BUT YOU HAVE MY VOTE. KEEP UP DOING WHAT YOU ENJOY BECAUSE IT WORKS. AS A PROUD DAD I HAVE TO PUT THIS IN MY 16 YEAR OLD SON KULDED A 200 PLUS 12 POINT THIS WEEK HE IS ON THE WAY TO OUT DO LAST YEARS SEASON.

    by no means am I trying to start an argument. I really enjoy your videos, but calling a compensator a brake is a bit confusing for people. some companies are marketing these products under the wrong title. the link above clarifies what each type of muzzle device is and does. keep up the great videos.

  8. Great review fellas, but I'd be interested in a comparison between this and the Damage Industries AK Brake which is also a 2 chamber at half the cost, it's worth considering.

  9. Going from the slant to a 74 style break was a great improvement on my AK. I wonder how this break compares to a 74 style break?

  10. What do you do to deal with a loose fit? Considering turning down the overall length on a lathe but I'd rather go for a less permanent and easy to screw up solution. I pin mine in the correct position but I could turn it 1/4 turn and a bit past that to be 90 degrees off (vent slots facing up and down instead of side to side)… So one full turn is one millimeter, I need to take off slightly less than 1/4 millimeter, so I'd think 0.008" to 0.009"… not sure what the hardness of this thing is, either…

    Also damn watch that midwest brake messing up the wall next door with the side blast.
