HAHAHAHAHA!!!..sorry that "last" question bit cracked me up!!

What, if anything, are you guys doing about a flash hider, compensator, or whatever on the end of the C or CA barrel?
Do I really "need" anything there or just leave the knurled thread protector on there?
I have a Winchester with the Boss on the end of the barrel, and a couple compensated pistols, and they are louder than heck!! Will a flash hider do the same thing and make them louder?
Ok.. thats it....well till my next question..:D

I have a Primary Weapons Systems FSC556 on mine. It was way expensive, but it works incredibly well. You don't need anything on the end of your SU-16. It is all about what you want.

FWIW, my wife didn't even want to shoot my Charlie. The loud report to the sides of the rifle, because of the compensator, made her a bit scared of it. But, once she got behind the wheel, where it is much more comfortable on the ears, she saw it wasn't as bad as all that.

I also have a PWS FSC on my CA.
Note the shim washers provided could not get the device aligned properly - i need to buy a crush washer now.

It's legal in NY as it does not completely eliminate flash. Sounds more like a sharp crack through plugs and muffs than stock. Looks really cool. I've heard the QC compensator is no louder than stock and really reduces recoil and climb.

Does it do anything? I'm not real concerned about the looks..I'm looking for something that does something, otherwise I'll just leave the cap on..

I bought a Yankee Hill flash suppressor 5c2 IIRC. I wanted one bad because when I tried shooting mine in a little shade or under cover all I saw was a huge fireball! No more fireballs with the f/s installed.

I just went with the old m16 style three prong flash hider, looks good and cheap...
Me too, and I thought I was the only one, lol! My fh is a little chewed up from a fall at the range, so I'm in the process of grinding the tips into chisel points for that "pig sticker" look, a'la the tapco razr AK brake. As a side note, the original slab/smooth side AR with the triangle forend (think viet nam era) is the only AR I would ever consider owning, and that is strictly for asthetic purposes... I'm not a fan of the platform on the whole and find the M4 variant to be especially offensive, operationally and cosmetically. Pistons own direct impingment!!! :)

I had an A2 flash hider on mine for a while but removed it so the rifle would fit (folded) into a tool box I have. If I replace the hider, I will either machine index it or use a style like you mention that doesn't require indexing.

I just purchased a PWS FSC556. I was very impressed with the amount of reduced recoil and barrel jump from the videos. When a SAW stays virtually motionless when on full auto, I think that is pretty good.

OT, but, I'm with you on that, brotha. One of the biggest reasons I bought a SU-16 was because I couldn't stand to have an AR, like everyone else. The only AR I would keep would have to have wood furniture.

Smith Enterprises has some really good stuff. My son has their 'Coast Guard' type muzzle break on a DSA SA58TAC. The recoil reduction was very notable. They make it with a 1/2 x 28 thread too.

They don't come as perty as the pic. Pretty rough on the finish, I slapped it on my 15-22 and it just didn't look right , even with an AR type barrel.
Thanks ... good to know!
