    Good evening,
    I currently have a Vortex flash hider pinned and welded to my 14.5 inch barrel... Been thinking about getting something else installed but looking for suggestions. I was looking at the BCM.. And the battlecomp models. Any suggestions are appreciated

    Don't waste your money. Assuming you got an AR in 5.56, the practical difference will likely be 90% mental and 10% nonexistent.

    Muzzle Brake

    I agree, I have 2 identical Noveske's one without a brake and 1 with a SureFire 556 brake. I can't tell any difference in recoil but the shooters on either side of me at the range sure can when I shoot the one with the muzzle brake.

    I'm going to run a heavy buffer, I already have an M16 BCG. So I'm hoping that they'll work together

    Is it mid or carb length? Just curious.

    I just got finished building my only (for now) mid length and after shooting carbine systems for years I can say I really enjoy the mid and will probably stick with it for any future projects.

    It's just the length of the gas tube. Here is an example of three different rifles. Most will say they feel a little less recoil with a mid length gas system with everything else being constant (ammo, weight, buffer etc)

    It all depends on how you shoot. Sure shooting slow, firing one shot at a time a few minutes per magazine, a compensator or brake isn't going to do much for you. A standard A2 birdcage is gonna work for you just fine. But practical, dynamic shooting, shoot and scoot, run and gun, movement drills, mozambiques, multiple target shooting, compensators make a huge difference.

    Think about how you want to use your AR. Plan accordingly.

    That's why I chose to do so... My rifle is set up for run and gun...... I chose that griffin based on the review by nutnfancy... He's not all about the cool factor.... It's about getting results.. This tactical compensator is highly recommended...

    If you aren't opposed to stainless I'd recommend the Nordic components corvette brake. Works very well for competition shooting.

    Jerry Miculek had his own compensator he developed, and it works well for him obviously.

    It's on Brownells too I believe.
