I was looking at these on ebay and saw so many different types that i was confused as to what the differences/functions are. I think i have to have the clip on style since i dont have any barrel threading, right?

I also saw all kinds of adapters, do i need one of those?

hopefully this is coherent enough for you guys to make sense of it.

I used to own a few SKS's, over the years, and one of them, a 'Cowboy companion' version, made by Navy arms back in the 80's had a spin on style muzzle brake.
Essentially, it slipped over the muzzle, and then twisted, locking over the back of the front sight and on the cleaning rodholder. It made the gun VERY nose heavy, and very inaccurate. As far as reducing recoil, that it did not! As far as making the gun louder, that it did! I never really felt that the brake was secure on the gun, while it surely 'snapped' into place, it wiggled, and always made me leery. :eek:

When I got rid of the SKS, the brake went with it.

In this picture you can see the brake.

I have a twist on that goes behind the front sight and the cleaning rod holds it in place.It makes it very pleasant for the grandson to shoot..............
