A muzzle brake for VZ58, CZ 858 and Gazela
The sports shooters who frequent our site will probably have already recognized it. This muzzle device is none other than our Sirocco muzzle brake, in a special version to suit Czech assault rifles in M14x1. That’s why we’re talking about muzzle brake for VZ58, CZ 858 and Gazela. But this is a unique custom part, not the original accessory. This muzzle brake, you’ll only find it in our shop.
This accessory is intended to redirect the propellant gases sideways at the front of the barrel. It minimizes the recoil of the weapon, countering muzzle rise. Yes, in 7.62×39 mm, the recoil is not uncomfortable for the shooter. But mastering it, regularizing it, enable better and faster shooting.
Note that this design with side vents allows prone shooting. This is because it limits the exhaust of the propellant gases downward, which can raise up sand and dust, depending on the terrain. An added advantage at the range as in combat.
But by the way, what’s the difference between VZ58, VZ58 Gazela and CZ 858?

A high-quality custom muzzle brake
We manufacture this accessory on the latest CNC machines. This ensures perfect finish and sizing. We drill the internal channel to 9 mm diameter to prevent disruption during the output of the projectile.
The 3 vents follow one another, offering an increasingly reduced exhaust. This open section is 24 mm in diameter (0.945″), and the base of the accessory is 22 mm in diameter (0.866″). Each muzzle brake for VZ58, CZ 858 and Gazela undergoes a hot bluing performed by a professional of surface treatments.
To be relevant, a side vented muzzle brake must be indexed horizontally. To do this, we will take advantage here of a notch to coincide with the original front pin on the gun. No need for tool or crush washer. Screw, block, and you’re done.
