Was thinking I might buy a night vision scope some time down the road. If the gun does not have a flash hider will the muzzel flash have a blinding effect on the night vision? Kind of like what you get from a camera flash or a Surefire light.

I have a first generation night vision rifle scope that has a built-in circut that reduces flash signature. The recovery from each shot is very quick and since it's a 4x scope it looks past much of the flash.

Second and Third generation equipment is much better.

What brand and model do you have. I am looking to buy a gen 1, unless I come across a real good deal on a gen. 2 or 3. So would a flash hider help or not?

Couldn't hurt.

If you can afford night vision you can afford a suppressor.  Some people just use low flash powders in bolt guns that are unsuppressed.

IMO all AR s should have an effective Flash
supressor to keep your pos as low key a possible.

Vortex or Phantoms work well.
