Default 7 inch SBR and flash hiders

I have a 7 inch barreled AR-15 with a Noveske KX3 flash supressor. I want to know if anyone has used any 7 inch barreled AR rifle with just the A2 flash hider and what were the results as far a muzzle blast, concussion, flash etc.
Thanks

I never like those A2 bird cage flash hiders, maybe it's just me. . I read and heard that Noveske KX3 is meant for SBR. I don't have one but i put Smith Vortex on my 10.5".

Thank you. Its been a fun little gun. Absolutly no reliablity issues whatsoever. I owe that to JoJo's gun works bolt rebuild kits offered by brownells. I have them in all my AR's and they have solved all FTF, FTE, problems. Now Im just trying to figure out the pros and cons of replacing the KX3 with an A2 flash hider.

That's the video of my pistol with Vortex.
In hiding flash factor, yes it hides so well.
I can't comment anything yet of muzzle break factor as i was shooting it as pistol (no stock).
But i read and nothing but good reviews about the Vortex. It's only less than $60.
