Bought one of the recent Romainian SAR-1's, and got the threaded adaptor (has 4 allen set screws) to go on my (sadly) non-threaded politically correct barrel. The adaptor, meant for an SKS, was .02 inches to small, so I opened it up a little, and it fit snugly with light tapping. I then attatched an AK74 style brake, took it out back, and found the bullets were being slightly deflected by the brake...just a hair, but enough to miss by an embarrasingly huge amount. In all honesty, I bought the brake and adaptor for dressing up a rather nekkid barrel end rather than for reducing kick (not enough to complain about) or muzzle climb (ATF gets really pissed off when you go full auto without a class III, so I'm strictly semi-auto). Anyone have advice? Should I open the bore of the brake itself so the bullets pass through without interference? Should I scrap it? Am I wasting my time? Is there another product known to work with post ban rifles?
