    Any pros or cons with this flash hider? Advantages of the version that you could mount a suppressor on?

    Thanks for any comments! :cool:

    Hides flash but has no comp value. Yes, you can mount a suppressor to it.

    No better than a standard A2 at hiding flash, you can mount a Gemtech Halo on a A2, I tried a few different flash hiders, and I ended up going back to the standard A2

    Hides flash better than anything else but I can't stand the ringing noise. I use Surefire flash hiders.

    Was watching Youtube and heard that ringing noise on a posted video.

    In regards to the Surefire & PWS, I am curious about your experiences.

    I don't believe a suppressor is in my future purchasing budget but you never know.

    They are great flash hiders but they do ring like tuning forks. I replaced all of mine with YHM suppressor mount brakes since I went that direction with my suppressors.

    I have a surefire suppressor so I use their mounts on my 5.56 guns. Haven't tried the PWS but it looks like a good design.

    The YHM Phantom works well and is cheap.

    My reasoning is why put wear on my can if shooting with friends who don't have suppressors? I have to wear ears anyhow.

    I wear electronic earmuffs so I can hear what's going on. The ringing doesn't really bother me but it does some people.

    1. Turn off your earmuffs.

    2. Only shoot this gun with people you want to annoy.

    C'mon man...work with me here...
