  1. The AR-15
    Can someone tell me how can you really tell the difference between a Muzzle Brake and a Flash Hider,the reason I ask is almost every rifle I have seen look pretty much similar except the way some of them are design.. The reason I ask is when I went to have what I thought was a Muzzle Brake...

    I'd like to purchase a flash hider or muzzle break for my 700. I've looked at a few... a vltor, a surefire, and a few others. Curious to see what you guys have / use / have heard about. It's a .308 Win so the threads are 5/8

    Ok I really need your advice on this one. Since we are apparently allowed to add evil features now, I have for the first time options open to me that never were before. No question I am going with collapsible stocks, but I don't know much about the end of the barrel. All I think I know is...

    the opportunity to but a Spikes Tactical STAB Muzzle Brake. I have wanted one for a long time but they do not make them anymore and think it would be awesome coming out from under a 15" rail on a 14.5" barrel. Now I am questioning this even though it says "it's a brake" because noveske has...

    I'm looking into doing a Colt XM177 vietnam build but since I dont have a preban lower I cannot have the 5.5" flashhider perm attached to it. For those that do not know these are 11.5" barrel uppers with a 5.5" perm flash hider on them. Anyways Since I don't wanna sleeve the hider and block...
  6. The AR-15
    Anyone else have one of these? It really changes the sound of the rifle. Love the fire breathing pig. This is one cool flash suppressor.

    Thinking about picking up a used upper, but it has an A2 flash hider on it. Is there anyone in the Syracuse are that can swap this out for a muzzle brake to make it legal? Thanks Adam

    Picked up a Dragunov Tiger last week. Imported 1993 by B-west. I had purchased the extended flash hider to install on the Tiger. Just making sure its ok to install a flash hider on a preban firearm or does it have to be pre-existing to be legal? I have seen a BATF letter on the internet signed...

    Hello everyone as you can tell I'm new. So far I find this website too offer many things besides just forum usage. Like giving local information on certain town events and what not...I bought a AK-47 Romanian. Not a arsenal (thank goodness). But my question is I found pre-ban flash hiders...

    I have an ak 74 and was trying to clean the barrel on it. The thing is I cant get the flash hider or muzzle break to unscrew. Does any onyone know how to get that off? I soaked it in oil and tryed with plyers and a strap wrench to break it free and also tryed heating it up with a propane torch...
  12. The AR-15
    If flash hider works as a compensator, I have to assume that would be no go for the ban? What about a compensator that acts as a flash hider? Probably erring on the side of caution and getting a straight compensator would be the safest bet? Something like this as an example where the primary...
  13. The AR-15
    Hi, Okay, I need someone who has the definitive bottom line on this: Visually, what makes a flash hider rather than a compensator? What's difference in how they look? I know the difference in what they do, but looking at one, how do you know it's a comp and not a fh? Is it that the fh has an...
  14. The AR-15
    I was wondering the legal issue/ consequence of an unpinned & welded flash hider?
