Ultradyne Muzzle Brakes
Ultradyne Muzzle Brakes are quite impressive. Ultradyne has spent untold thousands on research and development to create some of the most effective compensators which should really be called “recoil eliminators” in this case.
As seen in the above video, the Apollo Max that I tested performed impressively. It is an excellent choice for shooter faster, flatter, and keeping on target on longer ranges.
It is available in .223/5.56, 6.5 and 7.62.

Ultradyne makes ultra unique open aperture sights. These come in several variations from fixed, folding, 45 degree offset, dynamount (actually mounts on the muzzle brake!), with and without rear elevation adjustment for distance.
In the above photo you can see the rear sight adjusted for 200 meters, and below it is at 600. It adjusts for 300/400/500 as well.
But the real fancy and useful design of the Ultradyne sights is the front open aperture. This allows you to fully see your target without any obstruction. And the outer protecting “wings” always stay centered and don’t require you to have a tool to adjust the sight’s elevation.
So many options:
In testing the Vostok brake on my PSAK-47 we found that it completely eliminated the annoying “piston slap” that plagues the AK design. If you’ve never experienced it, it’s like a slight cheek sting every round fired. So not only did it eliminate most of the recoil and muzzle climb, but it made it more pleasurable to fire.
