Quick help please!!!! Brake or flash hider?!?!?
5 Attachment(s)
Ok so I need to change the flash hider that is coming on the DDM4V5 coming to my house today... I bought one on eBay and it's a AIM SPORTS AR15/M16 MUZZLE BREAK SHORT....

Now... This is precisely what just came to my house... But it looks like this....

To me it seams like its more of a flash hider than a muzzle brake... This is since there are 4 slots on it.. One on each side an the 2 on the top are ever so slightly angled away from the center of the brake...

I need to send this gun out ASAP to get pinned and welded but don't want to do it with the wrong part..

What do u guys think?

Also the packaging says this... (See pic)

Neither the seller said it was a flash hider nor did aim sports say it was when I just called them..

3 pic is top down view btw...

Don't purchase gun parts off of ebay. That's nothing more than an A2 variant.

I wish gun stores around here would carry this type of part... No one does cuz they all think getting a gunsmith to pin and weld it on is still a no no...

It doesn't really do anything to reduce recoil.

It does reduce flash.

It does compensate a bit for muzzle rise. May even overcompensate and push the muzzle down.

Added bonus, it won't kick up dust when you put the rifle on the ground and shoot prone.

If you are looking for a brake on a budget look at the DPMS Miculek, just make sure the caliber is correct for you gun, and the threading too. Also has a few options too for less expensive brakes.
