Amazing New Flash Suppresor!
 
This is a awsome video that came to my attention threw SnipersHide forums. Its actually supposed to be replacing the Flash Suppersors the Military is using now, but its bogged down in red tape! Ill let the video do the explaiing, but you should deffenently take a look!

Think I might get one as soon as I can afford a AR :rolleyes:

Looks like an effective product. Anyone have or use one?
The original m16 flash hider was a three-pronged setup.
I seem to remember reading that they were being bent and twisted by soldiers using it to break wire on crates of ammo or rations in Vietnam. Thats why military closed the prongs into the birdcage design. Not as effective but less prone to breakage. Think it would be easier to tell troops to stop using as wire cutters.:eek:
Take this with a gr. of salt, my info might be wrong- its been awhile since I saw that.

My opinion is if they decide to use it for those prposes, they are only hurting themselfs. The video says they sell for $31 a pioece and are sending them to active duty troops for free. Sounds pretty sweet to me. Id love to get one but I'd not have anything to put it on. Maybe Ill get my 10/22 threaded.:cool:

hate to rain on anyone's parade, but that video is dated 7/12/2006.....

still, a pretty nifty product

Yeah have seen it in midway for couple of years, never paid much mind. Fairly new to black rifles. First video I've actually seen of its usage. I was impressed.
Anyone have real world exp with??

I've put them on a few of my duty AR's. Work pretty much as shown, especially noticable reduction with SS109, M885 and other issue grade ammo.

I have a Vortec flash hider on my M-1 Garand, my HK 71, and my AR-15 and I am well satisfied with this product as you can see since I have 3 of them

Don't have one but they have been around a while. And are more expensive than $31.

This was the price I belive the gentlemen in the video quoted, unless that was a special price he was offering to active duty members.

AS previously stated " I the hate to rain on anyone's parade, but that video is dated 7/12/2006....."
