I'm looking for a nice Flash Hider for this Years SEBR. Can you guys give me your opinion and feedback on the different Flash Hiders that are out there? Can you tell me what all is involved with removing the permanent Izzy that will be on it, and putting another one on? I've seen a lot of goods things posted about the Phantom by YHM Hider..... I'd like to see what you guys think!

Thank,
Mike

I'm pretty impressed with the Phantom.

I was getting quite a big flash out of my 10.5" barrel (SBR) with an A2, but the Phantom really controlled it.

The only thing I've ever seen come out of my 20" AR barrel is a spark from time to time using a YHM-28 and thats in low light conditions.

The YHM-5C2 is nice and has the closed bottom, but lacks the sharp edges of the YHM-28 (which I like)

I was under the impression that they couldn't be removed.

I'm a fan of the Phantom as well, it does a much better job of hiding the flash than an A2. FWIW, mine is the one without the downward facing ports. It helps to not kick up dust when firing prone.

Rifleman2000....

The Izzy on this years SEBR is permanently fixed on the barrel, so it can't be removed my hand. I have read where a gunsmith a cut off the permanent brake/hider, and then stake and weld on the new FH/brake... I was just wondering more in detail waht was involved.. any special washers needed, etc......?

To remove a FS that has been pinned and welded find the spot that has been welded (ususally a slightly discolored area, there may be 2) and using a dremel tool to grind through the weld until the pin is located and can be removed. Once the pin is out the FS can be removed by unscrewing it. To replace it with one that is not permanent you need the new FS and either a peel washer (old method) or a crush washer (better IMHO).

Also, there are several posts on this in the "Build your own" section.
