    Flash Hider

    Hi guys,

    Just got my E Cat endorsement and now want to change the muzzle brake for a Flash hider. Sick of the all the moaning I get at the range about shooting air back in everyone's faces. Do you guys know where I could find one of these fairly standard looking ones for a decent price?? Would be screwing onto an NEA 5.56/.223 AR15 with standard thread. You would be saving me a world of grief! Pic attached. Cheers

    That is one of the stupidest features that create an MSSA.

    In a country that has zero restrictions on suppressor/silencer ownership or use. You can't use a flash hider, but feel free to use a suppressor. Seriously, wtf?

    Really shows that those involved in the writing of the Act had no clue.

    You don't have to use a flash hider or brake, just get a $15 1/2 x 28 thread protector.

    Need to gas bust the AR charging handle or have an adjustable gas block if you use the suprresor for a service rifle shoot.
    90 odd rounds later wthout either of those and your eyes are watering from the ammonia fumes.

    ^^ depends how over gassed your gun is to start with, and the suppressor

    Flash hider is better than bare muzzle

    Added bonus of using the suppressor is after 90 rounds, you can cook your lunch on it.
