    DEVGRU1982, why don't you jump over to the Introductions section and tell us a little about yourself?

    The Noveske KX3 "Flaming Pig" is a flash hider designed to increase back-pressure, aid in reliability, create a little dwell time for SBRs and direct the blast forward. That's theory, not experience from me.

    Yeah something is obviously broken there, would you care to elaborate and explain just what exactly it is we're looking at? I can't figure it.

    never mind I got it. That's one of them Flaming Pigs all blown apart.

    It's not blowed up.

    It's a cut-away to see the insides for everyone without Superman's x-ray vision. :rolleyes:

    I had one on a 7.5" Noveske Diplomat.

    It would but its heavy. The extra little bit of mobility the 14.5 offers would be canceled out by the PIG, plus it looks out of place on non sbr barrels. It does shoot a huge flame. There are other more suitable options out there.

    Cane from what I know of AK brakes the PIG seems to use the same principles. Correct?

    Thanks mj ...looks like I'll have to come up with different option . I got a 13.8 Troy industries rail on it and thought it would look cool with the pig coming out .

    I see where you're coming from and now that I see it w/ the longer rail it doeasnt look all that bad. Most impartant though is the balance of the rifle and the huge flame. Huge flames can be cool as hell but a nose heavy AR is not. It kinda midigates the possitives and amplifies the negatives of a 14.5" barrel.

    It looks cool but research the cost of fixing it if you change your mind.

    The kaboom hider that Mr Canebrake posted is not a Noveske it is a cheap knock off.

    Yes, the KX3 uses the same cone principle as one of the Baltic AK clones.

    The Noveske unit is heavy duty and well made.

    It works well on a 16 inch heavy barreled 7.62 NATO AR10 in my experience.

    muzzle break
    recoil reducer
    flash director
    concussion deflector
    flame projector
    :p

    Why do they call it a flaming pig?

    ^ The Noveske KX3 on a Diplomat.

    You're right mj, good eye. ;)

    That second picture isn't even a Noveske pig, it's an old SOG Armory Krink style brake that done blowed up. :D

    It has similar internals to the flaming pig but the Noveske is said to be a lot stronger.

    if its shooting a fireball several feet long it doesnt look like its doing very much suppression of the flash

    Im not too worried about weight just performance on a 14.5 inch barrel . I've got allot mods on this rifle including a spikes tactical 37mm launcher . So it's already heavy ha ha . I appreciate all your guys input .

    But weight directly effects performance. Manueverability is a huge performance factor in my eyes. If I can't swing the thing around it's useless to me.

    Now if I have the thing c-clamped to a bench then who cares about weight. In fact weight is a plus in that situation. But then again I'm not putting a 30whatever mm flare launcher on a bench gun.
