Muzzle Devices for AR-15s
A high-quality muzzle device could be a very effective way to improve your gun. Our large collection of muzzle devices includes something for everyone, including devices in a range of sizes, styles and specialties. Browse our collection to check out which devices you can use to upgrade your AR-15.
Types of AR-15 Muzzle Devices We Carry
Muzzle devices are small but effective add-ons you can use to increase the efficiency of your AR-15 and make it feel more like an extension of your body. At Wing Tactical, we offer a huge selection of muzzle devices, divided into three primary categories:
- Compensators: An AR-15 compensator helps reduce muzzle climb by diverting your muzzle blast and gasses upward when you fire. Because a compensator gives you greater control over your muzzle, you may also be able to improve your speed and accuracy.
- Muzzle brakes: AR-15 muzzle brakes are similar to compensators, but they reduce felt recoil by diverting your muzzle blast to the side or in a radial pattern. These devices make it easier to take faster follow-up shots or maintain control with larger cartridges, but they do make the shot louder — be sure to wear good ear pro when using a muzzle brake.
- Flash suppressor: Also known as a flash hider, this muzzle device quickly disperses gases from the muzzle of your firearm to reduce the signature flash that occurs when you fire. These devices are particularly useful for people who use night vision for hunting after dark.
It's important to note that flash suppressors are banned in some states, including California, Massachusetts, and New York. In these cases, you may be able to use a hybrid muzzle device. Some are combinations of two or more muzzle designs, while others are categorized primarily as one type but offer some characteristics of another.

Muzzle Device FAQs
What materials are these muzzle devices made of?
The majority of the muzzle devices in our collection are steel or steel alloys like carbon steel and stainless steel. Some options feature titanium or aluminum constructions, while others are primarily steel with a titanium sleeve.
Are any of these muzzle devices compatible with suppressors?
Yes! A selection of our muzzle devices — like our Griffin Armament taper mounts — are compatible with select quick-detach threaded suppressors. If you're not sure which devices are compatible with your AR-15, our experienced team members would be happy to help you figure it out.
Do you offer muzzle devices with different finishes and colors?
Yes! One of the perks of owning an AR-15 is the ability to customize it and make it your own, so we stock a number of muzzle devices available in different finishes and colors. Some popular color options include matte black, silver, gold, red, blue and even a glossy, color-shifting finish from Iron City Rifle Works called Unicorn Tears.
Do I need a muzzle device alignment kit?
Though installing a muzzle device is straightforward, it's critical that you get your device seated correctly before you try to shoot. A muzzle device alignment kit or a crush washer is crucial for ensuring you achieve the perfect alignment and a secure fit.
