You would be ok, so long as you did not add an additional "evil" feature in place of the flash hider (like a collapsible stock, bayonet lug, or grenade launcher)So if I was to build an AR with a 16 in barrel- no flash hider only muzzle brake?
Physically, the flash hider disperses the flash from the rifle so that it does not bloom and blind the shooter. Some have tried to cast a flash hider as hiding the flash from others, but that's simply not true. People around you can see the flash, particularly if you are shooting in their direction.whats the diffrence?
See Gunner57's link.Whats a good choice for the muzzle brake?
