Will putting a A2 Flash Hider on my Colt Post-ban H-Bar barrel have any negitive effect on accuracy?

This thing is a tack driver & I don't want to screw that up......, but I've been doing some low light coyote hunting & I'd really like to neutralize the muzzle flash!!

Thanks in advance!!

I doubt you will notice it.

I did that to my colt, but a 5c2 on it and you'll like it better, oh and you won't notice anything

The general consensus is that unless you're a high-master trying to make the President's Hundred, it will not make a significant difference.

ETA: Just make sure that the tension is on the light side.

If ever it affects the POI, it will be very minimal.

Would it be ok to initally over tighten / over index the FH and then back it off to where it is only snug when properly indexed?

Not true.. You still need to tighten it down or it will back off.

It will affect barrel harmonics. Just giving you a heads up in case you really are trying to get into the "President's own."

If your gun is shooting tight now, odds are that the barrel's node is at the crown, which is good. Adding weight will displace that node and cause the crown to vibrate when a shot is fired. You shouldn't notice the change but it's good to be informed.

After serious thought....., I think I'll just leave this one alone!!

It's just too sweet a shooter to roll the dice on!! I think this is one of those 1 in 1,000 barrels that is perfect the way it is. I'll live with the muzzle flash!

Thanks for your input, you guys rock!!

A Vortex weighs over 3 oz. Putting that much weight on the end of a barrel can either help or harm barrel harmonics.
