AR15, AR10/LR308 & AR9 Muzzle Devices
The muzzle device serves several important functions including limiting muzzle flash, directing gas, reducing recoil, and limiting muzzle rise. Selecting the correct muzzle device for your intended application is essential to achieving the best performance from your AR. For example, the Mil-Spec A2 Flash Hider was heavily engineered to eliminate the muzzle flash from any unburned powder on the M4. Competition Muzzle Brakes, on the other hand, are optimized to reduce recoil and muzzle rise which helps keep you on target for the next shot. The thread pattern of your barrel and muzzle device must match, and a quality crush washer is required to properly time the muzzle device to the barrel.
