The 14.5" bushmaster has a pinned on Phantom.

The ole ladies Bushy/BCM 16" M4gery has a Vortex but I don't have a pic of it were the muzzle is visable.

Surefire Comps with QD mounts, load as hell, but someday I will have the cans for them too. Recoil is soft as silk.

I just run a standard A2 flash hider on mine. Did have a DPMS Levang linear comp on it for awhile. Not sure how effective a brake on a .223 can be but I guess it helped some. Looked pretty cool too!

The phrase is "muzzle brake" as in "to bring to a stop" of excessive muzzle climb.

I hope that this helps.

I run the Knights Armament Triple Tap Brake on a few of my rifles. I love it and plan on purchasing two more soon so all my rifles will have one. The reason this brake works for me is the agency I work for has issued us the Knight’s NT4 Suppressor (which sux but that another story) and I needed a brake that didn’t void the warranty and I was offered a deal I couldn’t pass up. We were supposed to use the flash hider included with the NT4 but I’m not a fan of it and I like the control I get with a brake.

My KAC 3T’s:

If you’re not using it in an LEO setting I would highly suggest the PWS FSC556 for YHM Suppressors (if you have a 14.5” barrel you need to get to 16”) or the PWS FSC556 for NT4 Suppressor (if you already have a 16” barrel). For the extra $30 they are better than the std FSC556 because the side ports aren’t as large so you’re a little more courteous to the people shooting on the line beside you. The other nice thing about the PWS is that it also has built in flash hiding so you getting the best of both world. I used to run the FSC 556 on my ‘weekend shooter’ before going to the 3T and in all honesty it’s just as good for ¼ the price.

Im currently running a Phantom on one rifle, and a Noveske KX3 on the other. The Phantom will be replaced by a PWS FSC 556 one day though.

Currently a bird cage, but I want a YHM Phantom! At about $25.00 {give or take $5} & the reasonable amount of flash it reduces, It's a steal! Shh! :thumb:

A2 birdcage on the M&P, but the 3rd generation POF had a really cool F/H, until they changed to a muzzle break late in the run.

Not as imposing as the Phantom comp (which I want on MY next build!), but you wouldn't want to get POKED with it, either! :oh yea:

Vortex Flash Eliminator on both my carbine and spr. My Mom and older brother have the ADDAX Bulldog on their ATAC and my younger brother has the DNTC on his carbine.
