4.5 stars, rounded up to 5.
Great AK comp - 7.62x39, 16" barrel. Muzzle rise and movement is nearly eliminated once fully tuning is complete. Recoil is reduced to a "slower" and milder push back. Muzzle blast for shooter is not significantly increased over bare muzzle as far as I can tell. Well machined, well designed, easy to use. Good packaging and instructions.
Minor cons: Could be lighter and throws balance and "pointability" of gun off slightly (comparatively heavy at 5oz, MKII model is 2.x oz), no flat areas to tighten fully tighten with wrench (only on MKII model), could have included 1 or 2 extra Belleville (conical) washers of different sizes for timing (came with 2 washers of the same size, one for device, one for holding the cap on).

After our wonderful (sarcasm) postal service delivered a ripped open and empty package I got a hold of Jesse. He took care of it very quickly and got a second pair (I ordered 2) headed my way. I was amazed at just how much less recoil my Molot Vepr (7.62x54r) had. Once I started the tuning process I was even more amazed at how well it kept the muzzle level. It has definitely tamed the beast! I am sure that I will have similar results with the AR-15 version that my wife shoots. Thanks for a great product!

I purchased the: AK47 (7.62X39) The EFFIN-A Compensator for my 23" barrel 7.62 X 54R Russian Vepr Rifle. Product arrived promptly, build quality is evident; great fit and finish. I have been to the range twice and feel have it pretty well sorted out: barrel rise is all but gone; softened recoil; multiple rounds on target while maintaining sight picture. I may try to rotate 22.5 deg. where holes are not straight up and down and see if I can tune better, however right now I couldn't be happier - hands down the best $100.00 I have ever spent on a rifle accessory!

Great comp that is actually capable of overcompensating and blowing the barrel down! Able to be fine tuned to any load-out -- very good product!

I received the part very quickly. Instructions were clear, build quality was excellent, installation was smooth. The packaging was entertaining - you have to buy to find out. Gross adjustment was very quick, fine adjustment took a bit more time. Go easy, take your time, you can overcompensate. Nice product!

I have order MKII Compensator early in the day and was shipped out by the close of business on the same day. I received the MKII Compensator in about 3-4 days in the mail (USPS). Inspected and almost everything was included except for the instruction. I will have to wing it when I adjust the compensator. The compensator is well made and very solid. The new MKII does not have the capability to add another compensator to it compare to the former one. Removed the old A2 compensator and easily installed the MKII onto the AR15 barrel. I love the new look of the MKII Compensator. The new MKII have 3 rows instead of the 4 rows for adjustment. I not sure how much this will make a difference. if the new MKII is anything like the former compensator, it will be worth the money. I will have to provide a later update when I have completed fine tune of the compensator. stay tune. Predator Armament sells the MKII $10.00 cheaper than the competitors!! I will do business with Predator Armament any day. They are very fast in responding to orders. Great job.

Received my effin a compensator in a timely manner. First thing that catches your eye is the packaging especially the labels on the pill bottle that the compensator is packaged in.
Upon opening the bottle the compensator itself is crafted out of a very solid feeling piece of metal. The black coating is well done and feels super strong.
Compensator attached to the end of my AR-15s with no problems, haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, but the weekend will be here soon and I can't wait to try it out! Overall I'm totally impressed with the Effin A compensator at this moment.

Everything that it was proported to be at a reasonable price point. I saw it first in Recoil magazine but just the specifications were listed. After watching the three videos, I was impressed. The three shooters were spot on with their assessment; except I thought they said it was "ugly" - I'd say impressive. Jesse was very helpful, especially as I was somewhat impatient with it being on back order. Directions were written well and easily followed for tuning. Thank you.

The rifle I attached the Ares Armor Effin-A Compensator to is my Rock River Arms Piston Driven System 5.56(RRA PDS). This is an amazing rifle made all the better now that the minimal recoil is more of a "push" than a "jolt". I researched magazine articles, videos, blogs, gunsmiths, etc. to determing the most effective muzzle brake available. I was leaning towards the Spikes Tactical Dynacomp but the stats were strongly in favor of the Effin-A. The profile of the EA as attached to the barrel is reminiscent of the comp on the Thompson Sub 45 profile. I like the look. Aside from all that the EA performs exellently and I couldn't be more pleased. One last thing...Predator Armament got my order to me withing three days with normal ground shipping only. Kudos.

I have used multiple compensators for the AR-15 and the Effin A is hands down the best! The tunability allows the end user not only to tune for a particular rifle but even a particular load. The Effin A truly makes a HUGE difference.
Don't believe it? The video doesn't lie.
