I love that the SU-16c has a threaded barrel so I can choose from the dizzying array of breaks and hiders that are on the market.

Only problem is that there are so many of then that it's hard to choose!

What muzzle break or flash hider works well with the SU-16?

I don't think it's really any different than an AR for muzzle device choice. What do you want it to do? Brakes work great for reducing recoil, but send a lot more noise back. I like the VG6 Gamma, which is a hybrid brake/comp.

I use a linear comp. Reduces the recoil some, but most inportantly sends the biggest amount of noise and muzzle blast down range.

I bought my gun used and the previous owner had installed an M4 fore end and a Yankee Hill Machine Muzzle Brake with the "face destroyer" front end.

It works. I guess. I never thought about taking it off although after the first of the year I might have to as it is one of the menacing things that make an Illegal Assault Weapon in CA.

YHM makes several versions of this Brake and they are reasonably priced.

I often shoot unprotected out in the field, so I installed a blast deflector by Midwest Industries. Seems helping a bit. It may increase recoil a bit, but the recoil of 5.56 mm round is negligible, so it makes no difference.

I used to have an AK-74 compensator clone before. It was effective, but I could never prevent it from walking off. It has AK-style 14mm LH threads obviously, so it has to be install on an adapter. No matter what I did, the compensator would unscrew from the adapter. On a genuine AK, there's a set plunger in the base of the front sight. Another thing, which I forgot to account for, is the full-chamber design of it. Again, the plunger on AK allows a soldier to unscrew the compensator for cleaning easily. Not so if it's put on an adapter for AR or SU. I was glad to get rid of it, although it's a great design for its own application.

Because it has a small hole on the front, and isn't advertised as a flash hider, it's a comp/brake and not an evil feature.

If it was a flash hider, your gun would be an AW already. The only thing that changes next year is that a bullet button no longer keeps a featured rifle from being an AW.

Yes they have made that law so complicated that I have already heard about 15 different versions of what you have to do to register.

I have an AR and may register it. I also have a Mini 14 and an SU16CA. Both of those guns are not AW but probably will be before too long.

The Supreme Court really screwed up when they said the states could impose "Reasonable Restrictions" on guns.

They didn't define exactly what "Reasonable" means. This is a problem because to the left anything they want to do is "Reasonable." and especially if they are running everything in the state.:mad:

Hey all Newbie here. I just received my SU16c I bought new from the internet... I'm getting used to all the features.. My opinion on muzzlebrake/flash hider is to keep it small yet effective. I think I'm just going to get a A2 style birdcage FH, unless someone has some new input for me..
