There are literally hundreds of muzzle devices on the market intended to manage twist, kick, and muzzle rise. Some of them even do a fair job of reducing muzzle flash at the same time. Despite all of the options available, there are purists who want a simple, straightforward Birdcage Flash Hider. When you need a basic A2 flash hider you can’t do better than the Spike’s Tactical A2 Flash hider.

Sometimes simple is better. There are times when you want to build a rifle that is nothing fancy. Maybe it’s a basic home defense weapon and no one is really worried about gas tuning, or you’re starting out slow customizing a Mil-Spec system with drop-in parts. Whatever your reason for turning to a simple A2 flash hider, you still want a quality component. Spike’s Tactical has come up with just what you need. This A2 Mil-Spec flash suppressor will do just what it’s supposed to and look exactly as it should, finished with a heavy Mil-Spec Phosphate coat.

Spike’s Tactical A2 Flash Hider is fashioned after the standard muzzle device found on most of the American Military’s M4/M16 systems. It comes pre-threaded with 1/2-inch x 28 threads for easy application. The supplied Mil-Spec crush washer will keep it in place even under repeated fire. At just 1.75-inches in length and weighing in at 2.1 ounces, Spike’s A2 Birdcage Flash Hider is an unassuming little muzzle device that will finish off your basic 5.56/.223 build in classic style.
