I know that I don't post here a lot but I have been truly enjoying all the recent Colt talk with the sunset of the AWB. I did buy a Colt recently because I just wanted one and I could afford it but I still feel that my BM may be better built. The fit and finish is just beautiful on it.

Anyways, here is my question. Aside from aesthetic reasons, is there any reason to change my mini- y-comp brake to the A-2 birdcage flash hider? My BM shoots really well and i don't want to do anything to jeopardize that. However, I did order a retractable stock for it.

The Y COMP is extremley loud

Keep if if you like it. Personally, I want the evil features and the free threads for other attachments.

An AR15 doesn't need a brake, but a compensator is useful. Also, that SOB is LOUD! If you ever forsee the need to shoot without hearing protection (self-defense, etc.) you will be sorry (and deaf).

I REALLY don't want to start anything here but....



WHAT??? I CAN"T HEAR YOU!!!! CAN YOU SAY THAT AGAIN??? I THINK I MISSED THE QUESTION 'CAUSE MY HEARING ISN"T SO GOOD!!!

Other than that, they're a fine muzzle brake. Just don't leavy anything (including sodas and a scewdriver set) on the bench next to you when you bench shoot it, or they will end up on the floor. I still like mine though.

great compensator, but everyone beside you will be annoyed with the backblast/noise.

One problem, how long is your barrel. A Birdcage Flash hider won't be long enough to make a 14.5 inch barrel the legal limit of 16 inches. You'd need a Phantom or Vortex flash supressor permanently attatched.

If you have a 16 inch barrel, you won't have threads under the Mini Y, and when you do have threads put on, you'll have a hole on the bottom of you barrel where the pin was.

What? Huh? What he said, but from my experience they are one of the most effectivve muzzle brakes out there. Which will come in handy if you compete. I would go with the Phantom.

If your annoyed by the "loud noise", why not convert to paintball. Or perhaps airgun?

+1 to that! Or maybe learn how to put your ear plugs on the right way?

I probably will just leave it on and just do the collapsible stock. Thanks for the input.
