.223 and 5.56 Muzzle Brakes and More: Muzzle Devices for All Builds
Whether you’re looking to redirect flash, prevent muzzle rise on repeat fire, or reduce felt recoil, there’s a muzzle device for your AR platform rifle that can enhance your overall shooting experience. Flash suppressors, compensators, and muzzle brakes are just some of the muzzle devices in our collection, and each one can improve performance in a unique way. Let’s examine some popular muzzle device options for the 5.56/.223 caliber below:
Flash suppressors, also known as flash hiders, can redirect and cool down the hot gases exiting the barrel. Without a flash hider, the flash typically flares around the muzzle; while shooting in dim light, muzzle flash can obstruct a shooter’s vision and impact their ability to hold visual on a target upon repeat fire.
Without a muzzle device, combustion gases exit through the end of the barrel and move downrange; this can contribute to felt recoil. A muzzle brake, however, directs gases around the muzzle to reduce felt recoil. With less felt recoil, shooters may feel more stable during repeat fire.
Compensators direct muzzle gases in a fashion that prevents muzzle rise. While gases exit the muzzle, shooters may naturally raise the end of the barrel in response to this gas release. But, by forcing gases in a different direction, a compensator can compensate for this muzzle rise and help shooters maintain stability upon repeat fire.
