Thanks for the affirmation.
The fastest shooter of the group by a mile had a Surefire 215A flash hider.

I'm far from an expert with a carbine but Ray Charles can see you don't need a brake to drive a carbine fast. Its not a hard friggin caliber to control. Now stick two guys with some serious skills side by side you might find a brakes gives you a few hundreths of a second advantage. But for us mere mortals I see no practical difference.

But again...I could be wrong about that.
