    Do you want a comp or a flash suppressor? They do different things.

    I went with the PWS on my BCM 14.5 middy. I had one on a 16" previously, and I really liked it.

    It's louder than an A2 and a little more flash, but it is a really great comp.

    I don't have any experience with the battle comp, but have heard nothing but good things about it.

    My BattleComp is amazing. I'll never have anything else on a <18" rifle.

    I did a LOT of reading when trying to decide on a comp, and the main thing that steered me toward the BC was the comparative lack of concussion. That, coupled with better flash suppression and outstanding muzzle control are what sealed the deal for me vs. the PWC and Surefire offerings.

    battle comp IMO. Amazing recoil control (same as FSC556 again IMO) and less blast laterally. battle comp is the best "jack of all trades" muzzle device.

    I have both and think the BC 1.5 is better. Is it a $55 difference? I think so.

    I was talking about the dif in price b/w the PWS and BC. Either will be a big step up from the Birdcage.

    BC is the way to go. PWS will piss off your neighbors at the range. Go with the BC.

    I'm a big fan of the PWS. I highly recommend it. With that being said I don't have experience with the Battle Comp. So I can't give any personal opinion on it. Yes, the PWS does cause more blast than a standard A2 birdcage, but I wouldn't let that deter me from getting one.

    The BattleComp does everything better than any of the other comp/hider combo's.
     
  14. as soon as BCM gets more of the BCM 14.5" w/ DD RIS II rails, I will be going with the surefire FH556-212A.

    yeah, I did that too on my 14.5 upper.

    then I had to spend another $40 to my gun smith to remove vortex and install a BC after I actually shot a gun with one on it, and in the process it uglied up the old vortex from having to drill out the two blind pins.

    so I was out the $ for the vortex, the $40 for the gunsmith, and $200 for the BC.

    so I guess you could profit from my mistake and just start out with the BC and save a bunch of money because you will end up with one in the end anyway.

    No problem other than the BC 1.5 is far better.

    Sounds like he realized the BC was so much better than his Vortex it was worth demolishing it and paying to have a BC installed. To me that says alot due to the money involved.
