    Does such a muzzle device exist?

    So I want a muzzle break if you can call it that where the ports face toward instead of back. The objective to me is recoil increase is okay but I want to reduce noise heard, muzzle rise and flash if possible

    you will no reduce muzzle rise by channeling gases forward. muzzle rise in AK is a compound effect of two forces - recoil and BCG inertia over center-mass of the rifle.
    muzzle brake that went forward is essentially going to have same effect as bare muzzle with respect to muzzle rise.

    you can reduce flash with a flash-hider much more effective than a brake. if you want to mitigate sound more than anything else than select cone-shaped solid hiders not bird cage/slit type. because those channel gases side-wards and will increase report respective to shooter's ear.

    or this

    although arguably not the cheapest way to go about reducing sound and flash nor without own set of disadvantages.

    That seems like a smarter choice then spending a lot of an advanced muzzle break like that.

    I wish, I don't got the 200 plus suppressor cost. Though I am wishing the safe hearing act passes

    They kick like hell, no matter what manf. says.
    I screw one on when indoors, if necessary.
    Climb and flash are reduced, but recoil...just save your money for ammo and mags

    Recoil, noise, and flash can all be changed by different ammo also. Don't know what caliber you are running but surplus ammo has always been more hotter than commercial.

    The ak74 brake is one of the best out there and as many members have already eluded to, there are many other US options.

    A linear comp is what you described in the OP. Lots of options around, but they aren't very effective.

    What about the tapco spotted brake or the ak operators fighter brake. Do either of those work?

    I ran a Levang Linear comp on a 5.56 pistol, while it did a good job of redirecting muzzle blast forward that's all it did, besides weighing about as much as a roll of dimes. No reduction of muzzle rise. Anything that's going to reduce muzzle rise has to vent upwards, on a short barrel that's gonna be more perceived blast.

    I tried my Tapco slotted brake on my Draco pistol, while it works great on my WASR it directed the fireball that vents from my Draco straight up. After a few mags I decided I liked the AK pistol better with no device. May try a flash can when I see a good sale on a cheap one.

    I'm running a lantac and it's pretty sweet. Just received their Blast Mitigation Device to run with the brake. Looks wicked and like it will be the best of all words short of a suppressor. I can't give review yet as I really just got it (today) and have 0 rounds through it yet.
