In a tactical situation those compensators are brutal for any team members near you.
The flash is also a giveaway in low light. Pretty sure that's what HK in AK meant.
Only the BattleComp 2.0 integrates A2 compatible suppressors to cut down the flash for use with NODs.
Still, impressive fireballs!
Nice pix and vid's guys.
That actually is a battle Comp 2.0...pinned and welded to give me a full 16" barrel. I noticed that the muzzle flash was much worse with 55Gr American Eagle, but just a dull amber puff when shooting 77Gr BH or 62Gr Lake City.
Type of powder (ammunition) has a huge impact on muzzle flash. Flash is created by the powder burning outside the barrel, so with proper powder/weapon combination where the powder burn is optimal the flash is significantly smaller.
