Has anyone else had a Bushy w/ a mini-y comp? Is it supposed to feel like a hurricane hitting my face with every round? The flash-hiders on Bushmasters dont do that do they?

What you describe is quite normal. Those sensations made the "Y" famous.

I like to eat at the "Y" does that count?
My girlfriend hates it when I make that joke!

The proper thing to do with the 14.5" M4 barrel with the Mini-Y Comp --->

replace that Mini-Y with a pahntom. Thats what I did, and the difference is phenomenal. It will go from fireball to nothing just like that....

The Phantom is ~ $25 from any number of the EE vendors, such as eaglefirearms.net or gtstactical.com

You can drill out the two pins in the mini-y (at 12 and 6), unscrew it, screw onm the Phantom and have it permananetly attached (blind pin and welded) to maintain legal length (just over 16" with the Phantom).

I'm not sure what would win a loudness contest between the y-comp and the Armalite brake. Both are annoying.

I just got a bushmaster with a y-comp too. I didn't mind having the y-comp over the fh until i fired it. Rattled my teeth. Now i'm thinking of getting a fh.

I had two guys at the range the other day, on either side of me, both with 14.5" with Y-comps..and they were taking turns doing mag dumps. I thought my brain was going to bounce off the inside of my skull.

I love this rifle now that I took that comp off.

We used to shoot an indoor league with a guy, He shot an AR10, 14.5 or 16" with that brake. That sonofabitch would make your ears pop & heart stop. More than one of us would leave the range area when he shot.

DANIMAL, I hope you fixed that damn thing. Whew..............

My wife has one on her AR, and she refuses to replace it!
She calls it her "mini whine comp", from all the people that complain about it.
It's all good though, when we go to the range I let her shoot first so I can get a bench next to her.

On the other hand, all my fillings have fallen out.

God bless the Mini Y-comp!
