If you're like most of us you want to get the most value possible when it comes to making a purchase. That doesn't mean that we are cheap, just smart when it comes to spending money. Now, nearly every AR-15 is going to wind up with a muzzle device of some sort, most likely several before you find the right one. Why would you buy something that isn't going to do what you want it to? Just cut to the chase and get a Precision Armament AFAB (Advanced Flash Arresting Brake). Stop wasting your money on anything less than what you really want.
When you hear the name AFAB hybrid muzzle brake, don't make the mistake of lumping it into the realm of other muzzle brakes. The Precision Armament AFAB is a whole new animal. It is designed with smaller ports to manage the physics involved with excess shot gasses. Unlike the ordinary brakes out there with large holes that buffet you with a concussion and catch anything small enough to wedge itself in there, the AFAB muzzle brake is sleek. The concussion and smoke from the shot are directed away from your face so you can get back on target fast.
The AFAB part of AFAB muzzle brake stands for Advanced Flash Arresting Brake. If you ever plan to fire in low-light, say you decide to hunt hogs or maybe stop an intruder before they get in your house, then you should consider it a necessity. For the sake of your night vision, an AFAB hybrid muzzle brake needs to ride on the front of the barrel of your rifle.
