We have all known for some time that an A2 compensated FH seems to strip some accuracy from the REPR because the aggressive muzzle blast from 7.62 causes some excess barrel whip. So we will transition to the open tined LWRCI FH which we make in house.

I am wonder what FH'ers you guys have put on your REPR's and your results.

Why just a flash hider? Why not a brake from the factory?

Darren, I am (at this exact very moment) having LWRCi put a PA BA BattleComp onto my MJOLNIR. Hell my rifle is probably less then 400 feet from you.
Please stop in and say hello to it. It misses me.
Battlecomps are great and I have them on most of my LWRCi's.

But, it's not just a flash hider so...


When my IC arrives that will be one of the first things I do to it.

I have a BABC on mine also. Works like a charm.

The KAC MAMS looks interesting.

Darren-
I have used a BABC and and I currently have an AAC muzzle brake on my REPR. If I wasn't running an AAC can then I would probably stick with a BABC. I think it's a great comp, it's probably not as good as hiding flash as your FH would be though.

I have been very pleased with the results the Enterprise Vortex has given me.
I am moving toward an AAC Brakeout for the suppressor attachment.
I like being able to move my suppressor around to any gun i have. i use a 30cal supressor on my smaller calibers as well.

What's the difference between the classic A2 and the LWRC Flash Hider?

Unless it's this thing, which, up to this point, I thought was just a Vortex FH:

Call me crazy but how many people really care about "hiding" or "suppressing" the flash.
Before anyone starts...I know what the purpose is and what it does.
I would much rather have a brake/comp then a flash hider any day (weapon control).
As many times as I have had my LWRCis into the shop to install BABC'c I wish this was a brand that LWRCi would offer as an option on my MJOLNIR and M6IC. It would save me the trouble of changing it out.
That being said, Marcy and Matt at Northwest tactical are great about having the BABC's in stock and getting them out quick.

Sure fire new SOCOM like flash hiders are excellent. May give it a try.

Probably going to go with a AAC Blackout for my REPR. Would like a comp but I already have one obnoxious rifle, I don't need another one. I do like the control the brake out gives me on my PSD, but it fricking hurts to pull the trigger on that thing.

Pulling the trigger on a REPR with a UBR, a BABC, and a SSA-E does not hurt. It's nice and handy and follow up shots are a lot nicer than that thing bucking to the side with the A2 FH.

Just sayin'

Which makes me wonder how I can get a BABC onto an IC before it leaves the factory?
