Interesting that these 74’s have only a muzzle nut and no brake.
On behalf of these individuals being in NBC gear I’ll assume that they intend to work in NBC environments.
Brakes and most flash hiders are very bad in NBC environments, be they open warfare or clandestine labs. It doesn’t take much to set off many highly concentrated agents, compromise a suit, or otherwise catalyze the death of everyone within a few blocks. Anything that directs high temp gas in a way that causes any kind of concentration could increase the likelihood of catastrophe.
High quality suppressors and strategic moderation go hand in hand with many NBC environments, especially those encountered by domestic LE where encountering things like nitromethane and atypically volatile catalysts are common (substituted amphetamine, MDxx, and substituted phenethylamine production). It is no exaggeration to say that the difference between near instant death and survival could be the use of a suppressed gun or bare muzzle and specific barrel length / load combo as opposed to a brake at various instances.
Or in this case it could just be people in NBC gear who don’t have a budget anywhere else…
They don’t have muzzle brakes because they’re not AK74s; the rifles pictured are Norinco Type-84Ss, which are chambered in 5.56x45mm and typically come with either a bare muzzle or an AKM style slant brake.
Actually I think this is a screencap from Painkiller Jane
What else am I supposed to say people? The Holocaust was good? If you ask a simple question you will get a simple answer. It’s like asking me, “What’s your opinion on murder?”
