There are three main types of muzzle devices for your weapon: flash suppressors/flash hiders, muzzle brakes, and compensators. AR-15's are getting more popular every day partially due to their low recoil and muzzle rise. With a good muzzle brake recoil can be reduced even more and with a good compensator, muzzle rise significantly drops, almost vanishing. While muzzle flash cannot be completely eliminated, it can be significantly reduced with a quality flash hider. These muzzle devices are becoming increasingly more popular due to how easy they are to put on (5-10 minutes), their incredible efficiency, and because they make a good looking gun.
About This Muzzle Device: The Guntec AR-15 Micro Slip Over Barrel Shroud With Multi Port Muzzle Brake is a new, innovative micro design. Guntec USA has put in a lot of research into aluminum alloys to make this muzzle device incredibly durable while also keeping it lightweight. Users get the two-in-one experience with this device because it functions as a barrel shroud as well as a muzzle compensator.
Threading: 1/2x28 is a common thread type for muzzle devices made for .22 caliber projectiles, commonly found on AR-15 barrels chambered in .223 Wylde, 5.56 NATO, and including .224 Valkyrie.
Finish: Anodized Type 3 Hardcoat - This coating is exceptionally hard and durable, its qualities which allow it to resist damage due to corrosion and abrasion. Its greater material hardness and thicker oxide layers make it well-suited for applications that require excellent engineering characteristics. These qualities make it a very efficient coating for several different parts of your weapon as seen in military use.
Ports: This Muzzle Device has 46 ports to compensate for the felt recoil and reduce muzzle climb by pushing the barrel back down, making the shooting experience feel flat without jumping off target.
