Hi guys,

I could use some help identifying a muzzle brake. I took it as part of a trade and I'm just not sure what it is exactly.

It looks just like the muzzle brake that came on my Arsenal SLR-105, but it's slightly heavier and has a stamped "U" marking near the business end. It doesn't appear to be chrome lined. It does have the zig-zag internal cuts. So I'm not sure if it's Bulgarian or something else.

I'll post a pic later, but anyone know what this is? Is the 'U' stamp any indication?

TIA...

I didn't know the Bulgarian SLR105 rifles came with zigzag brakes.

I think it might be an East German brake. I bought a brake that was supposed to be of "East German" manufacture and it had that mark. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

That bevel does not look factory, any signs of lathe chuck marks on it?

The one E German I have seen had a "z" stamped in the sameplace as the "U" on yours.

I agree with the others that it looks East German.

My East German has an "F" stamped where your "U" is.

I wonder what the letters signify. Different inspectors? Different lots?

My East German brake has a bevel too, but doesn't seem as pronounced as yours. Also my brake is marked with an X so it must be just different inspectors. It is chrome lined in the main brake section, but the external part past the windows is not chromed inside like my Bulgarian. Here is a few pics:
