    6.8 SPC Flash Hider or Muzzle Brake

    We are turning the 6.8 SPC Barrels today. They have a 5/8" by 24 thread so that you can use most muzzle brakes, flash hiders, and sound suppressors from .30 cal. rifles.

    The price of .30 cal. muzzle devices compared with .223 cal. muzzle devices is unreasonably high. Nevertheless we need your input. Because those shooting 6.8 SPC are wildcats themselves, we thought they should send us which brake they want installed. There's lots of good ones out there including the Vortex from Smith Enterprises, the Phantom from Yankee Hill, etc.

    We have designed a muzzle brake which is almost exactly like the one on our VEPR rifles. It works well.

    Please let us know what you like best.

    Sincerely,

    Alex J. Robinson

    I'd say the A2 Flash Hider is winning this one!

Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination are omnipotent. The slogan press on has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

    Personally, I'm a fan of the Vortex. I have several, though they're all on 5.56mm.

    Bottom line is I really don't care THAT much, but tend to the Vortex if I've got a choice in the matter.

    Hmmm. Is 6.5 or 6.8 close enough to .30 caliber that the same can on a Halo quick mount would be effective. If so, the standard dimension flash hider would be my vote.

    I'm going to look at the combined flash suppressor/compensator made by primary weapon systems....they tell me one specifically for 6.8 will be out soon.

    I would want the rifle delivered with an A2 hider. Then I could install a Smith Vortex at a later date.
    You can’t have too much ammunition. Unless you are on fire or going swimming.

    Deja Vu. I just ordered two of those. One with the combined compensator and flash hider for the XCR and one for my FAL. It will be two more weeks before I get back home to try them out.

    I'm fitting all of mine with the "Phantom flash eliminator" from AAC so that I can easily move around my M4-1000 AAC Silencer!

    Economy first! It sounds good anyway
    O.S.O.K.

    Yes I voted for the A2 Flash Hider. But I would be interested in the muzzle brake if was like the AK74 brake.
    You are either moving forward, or backwards. Their is no neutral in life.

    Go DNTC and have both. I believe Primary Weapons is coming out with a 6.8 version of their hider/compensator device. On .223 it's very effective.
