Had a couple of friends from out-of-town visiting the last week. Always nice to get to spend time with Like-Minded Individuals. One of them brought along his AR which had the most amazing compensator/brake/supressor I’ve ever experienced.
The AR was just your standard carbine in .223….nothing remarkable. But the ‘muzzle device’ from BattleComp was amazing. There was virtually no muzzle rise at all. In fact, I’m tempted to say there was no muzzle rise because I sure didn’t notice any. This thing just gave the rifle a bit of a push straight back and that was it. If I were going to be engaging multiple targets quickly this thing would be just the ticket. If I ever put together a close-quarters carbine this will be the thing that goes on the end of the barrel. It isn’t really a compensator, isn’t really a brake, and isn’t really a flash suppressor…it is apparently a combination of the three. But, whatever, it was awesome.
They apparently make a 7.62 version and I would love to have one on my PTR-91 but apparently they only make ‘em threaded for a few .308′s and mine ain’t one of ‘em. Gotta send ‘em an email and see if I can get something done about that.
In the meantime, these things aren’t cheap but, wow, I was way impressed. Didn’t notice any real increase in noise, although Im sure there must be a tradeoff somewhere…no free lunch and all that. Go check ‘em out.
