Muzzle brake compensator ???

Just bought a 40 dollar muzzle break compensator for my Tokarev. Thought it was worth trying out. Looked kind of cool. Seemed easy to use. When it showed up in the mail I was eager to give it try. Wouldn't fit either of my Tokarev pistols. On one it would not fit and all and on the other it would not rotate completely into position. Anyone have any experience making these fit? Interested to know what and where you ended up filing. I'm not going to touch my gun with a file so the compensator will need to be adjusted.

I had to lightly sand the inside of my slide, there was a small machining burr preventing an easy fit.

After installed, is there any felt difference?

Told by them the 9mm break will not work on the Zastava M88A. FYI ...

Break was very, very tight. Got it to turn.
