Replacement AR 15 Muzzle Brakes?

Recently shooting my new AR I noticed a lot of muzzle rise during firing making it hard to stay on target for follow up shots. Are there any replacement muzzle brakes on the market that will help this significantly? Thanks!

What do you have on there now?

The A2 flash suppressor, helps a bit.

I just had an AAC brake put on, I'll let you know how well that works. It apparently is also designed to easily put an AAC can on, in case you are interested.

Is this as simple as unscrew stock and screw new one on? If so I'm sold. (Yes, I am that much of a newb)

The PWS comes with a pack of shims for proper clocking of the brake. It really is that easy. It does make it easier if you have an upper receiver vise block.
