In Response To: Not my experience. (Tallahasseean)
My first experience with a full auto AK was with a Fleming Polytech underfolder. Because of my physiqe the buttplate fit my shoulder perfectly leaving no part of the buttplate on bone. The inside of the buttplate fit perfectly inside the pocket of my shoulder. This one had the flat muzzle nut. I had no problems maintaining control during short or longer bursts. Some years later I shot a similar one with the Chinese AK74 style brake. It was very easy to control and the brake soaked up a good bit of the recoil.
Over the years I've shot a lot of semi and full auto AK's. I've always found that the fixed stocks, though I like the looks better, have always left a bruise in the pocket of my shoulder. Probably due to the smaller footprint of the buttplate vs the underfolder's.
The only one I really liked was a postie Bulgarian AK47. It was super smooth with a cyclic rate matching the Uzi at around 600 RPM. It had very little felt recoil and felt like the bolt ran out before reaching the back of the receiver.
My least favorite is the Maadi. It's light for an AK and the slant brake is a little too effective. It and others I've shot with the slant brake tend to force the muzzle down violently which causes the stock to abruptly jump up smacking the cheekbone. I don't consider them fun to shoot except for commando style from the hip. I have no problem controlling one with a flat muzzle nut and will take that all day long instead of the slant brake.
