So I just this WASR-10 as my first AK the other day and have thus far been happy with it, but I did notice that the slant break doesn't appear straight. Looks like it's cut such that it curves to the side rather than being straight down at 6 o'clock. Note that the break is in the notch at the 12 o'clock position.



Again I'd think that it would want the protruding part of the break would be at the bottom not the side, but then again I'm a AK newbie. So I appreciate any insight that can be offered from those who know...is this normal? If not should I sent it to Century and get them to send me a replacement brake?

I know nothing about AK's but that looks like it would be beneficial for a right handed shooter. The muzzle blast should assist in reducing recoil and force the muzzle down, directed straight into your support hand. Possibly the intended design?

No clue. Just a thought.

IIRC it's supposed to be like that. Helps with FA shooting.
Exactly! Recoil pushes up and to the right. The compensator diverts blast up and biased to the right. it also helps keep debris from flying in your face when prone. The AK is set up for right handed shooters........
