4.0 out of 5 stars Effective and easy install Oct. 26 2012

This item is perfect, I would have given it 5 stars if the finish was a bit nicer.

Otherwise, it installs perfectly, fits like a glove, and doesn't disappoint. Recommended sks upgrade!

Edit after shooting:

This is a quality item, that actually does its job. I'm very impressed, and my SKS owner friends are buying this after shooting mine!

1.0 out of 5 stars It's not as good as advertised. Aug. 14 2009
By Alex Kagan - Published on Amazon.com
I get one AMSKSL for my Russian SKS, but I am really disappointed. Fitting size on the rifle for this muzzle is 14 mm. Fitting size of the hole on the actual muzzle brake is 14.7mm. It sits loose and is moving up and down.
I contacted NcStar about this issue. They had checked current stock and all the brakes there are the same size. I also have short muzzle brake for SKS from NcStar AMSKS. It sized 14.2 mm and sits perfectly on my SKS.
I asked NcStar how they happened to have different sizes for the same rifle - they have no answer for that, but promised to investigate this issue and replace mine. But it will take them at least 2 months to do it, because the shop is in China.
I hear who ever use it on Chinese SKS is happy - it is possible that there is a different fitting size on the barrel. I don't know, but it's not for a Russian SKS. I had tried on another rifle that a friend of mine has - and it is the same problem.

I had call NcStar after 3 month of this review and they said, that need to sale current batch of muzzle brakes - defective, in order to make new with correct size!!! Buyers be aware: they still sale defective and possible dangerous product, that may damage rifle and/or injured shooter.

I hate 2 admit I bought this thing cause it looked cool on the end of my buds SKS.... Don't know if it does anything or not & I dont care. Put a thin coat of black heat resistant silicone on the end of the barrel b4 U slide it on... When it dries....it wont move. Don't forget the pin. Drive it out w/ a punch. 5 min install

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner From NCStar! Oct. 12 2012
By Gil - Published on Amazon.com

My NCStar muzzle brake arrived in perfect condition. Unfortunately - and this is NOT NCStar's fault - I didn't have the right tools to do the install myself, and subsequently bent two steel pin punches trying to remove the front sight pin from my Norinco SKS. I wound up taking it to my local gun shop, and the gunsmith had to remove "a little" to open up the inside diameter of the brake for a proper fit. Now it fits good, and looks good on my SKS Bullpup. (NCStar makes tactical outfitting affordable for those of us on a tight budget - I've been using their products almost exclusively for several years, and haven't ever had a bad one.)

5.0 out of 5 stars NcStar SKS Muzzle Brake June 23 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Fits perfectly. It was wonderfully tight going on. But a piece of 2x4 over the tip of the muzzle brake with and a 32 ounce ball peen hammer seated it nicely. Put the pin in place and it's done. A week after the installation I did a side by side comparison with a stock SKS. The NcStar muzzle brake worked as advertised allowing me to stay on target much more easily and the recoil was reduced considerably.

5.0 out of 5 stars SKS brake Jan. 18 2013

Easy to install if you use the right tools. I was too lazy to go out to the garagae and grab a punch and heavier hammer at first. I tried to use the pin that came with the brake to tap out the old pin... bad idea. Anyway once I got it off the brake fit surprisingly snug with no play on my paratrooper. Brake came in perfect shape, but after installed I did have to use some touch up paint on the head of the pin. I usually don't write reviews, but this is a good way to spend 8 bucks and some change.
