Don't knock the Battlecomp, its a great device that does a good job a flash supression, recoil reduction, and muzzle rise compensation and isn't blasty (noisy) like most brakes. It's a good compromise between those 4 attributes.

My point is things add up. Don't forget the money it's going to cost to have it pinned. If you're anything like me you'll never be happy compromising. Next thing you know you'll be at Lowes buying a dremel tool and spending another $100 or so to get another device pinned. Cheaper in the long run by far. Wait and save if you have to.

A muzzle brake on a 5.56 MM carbine is about as usefull as a diet crouton...In fact, it's downright useless and obnoxious.

The first AR I owned was a post ban Bushmaster M4 with a 14.5" barrel and a 1.5" mini Y comp muzzle brake. It was so damn loud you could not fire it a the range without getting dirty looks and given the mild recoil of the 5.56 it's not even necessary.

We never saw brakes on AR's prior to the ban. The only reason they started adding them was because they looked tacti cooler than having nothing on the end of the barrel and builders could get away with it because they are not "flash suppresors".

The A2 birdcage variant you have is ALL you need.

NY doesn't allow you to have a flash hider am I correct?

It may be all he NEEDS but he cannot HAVE it due to the fact that he lives in New Yorkistan.

How long is your barrel? Forgetting everything else about muzzle devices make sure whatever you have pinned is a legal length federally and NY-wise.

For $13 you got a standard A2 flash hider which works for many of us, but most of us don't need it pinned so it's easy to replace if necessary. Make sure what you do is legal in NY.
