Muzzle Devices

Muzzle Devices are generally broken down into three categories.

  • Sound Suppressors (AKA "Silencers")
  • Flash Hiders (AKA "Flash Suppressors")
  • Muzzle Brakes (AKA "Compensators")

Flash Hiders: When you fire your rifle, there’s a flash of light that is a result of the burning gunpowder as the bullet leaves the barrel. This is referred to as muzzle flash, and it can temporarily blind you in a low-light condition, causing you to lose focus while decreasing your accuracy. Flash hiders, which come standard on most stock threaded-barreled tactical rifles, protect you and your eyes from excess muzzle flash. This means you’ll be able to see more clearly and shoot more accurately.  However, there is a common misconception that a "Flash Hider" reduces the muzzle flash that is visible to persons other than the shooter.  This is simply not the case.  Flash Hiders only reduce the muzzle flash visible to the shooter.


Muzzle Brakes help to reduce felt recoil and muzzle climb, by venting gases upward and outward.  This helps stabilize the muzzle, allowing for faster and more accurate follow-on shots.
