I'm sending my post-ban uppers in to Adco to have a flash-suppressor put on. Do any of you have a preference between the Phantom 5C1 vs. 5C2 and why?

There is a picture of both about 3/4 way down on their site here-->www.adcofirearms.com/acc/LMT.cfm?page=

I like the looks of the 5C1 better but as far as I know there will be no difference in performance.

The front is designed to be sharp on the 5C2, so that it can be used as a sort-of-bayonet.
It has a sharp front edge.

Don't know about the ports, if they are the same?

The only difference are the points on the end. I ordered that one because it looks more evil!
There is no difference in performance of either model.

There is another Phantom that looks similar to the 5C2, but all the ports are open.

To clarify my question, I should have put these two links as well:

1) On Bushmaster's site, they have a picture of the 5C1 here-->www.bushmaster.com/shopping/brakes/yhm-28-5c1.asp which shows that the 5C1 has 5 ports with the 6th one being 'closed' so that you don't kick up dirt as much. I actually do understand what they are talking about since I shoot in a sand pit. When shooting in a prone position with a barrel rest keeping it about 10" off the ground, you 'kick up' quite a bit of dust with a bare muzzle.

2) brouhaha, as you point out, the 5C2 has the 5 ports as well with the 6th one being 'closed' as in this EE add by dennysguns seen here-->ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=25&t=211608.

To clarify my original question: Is the only difference between a 5C1 and a 5C2 the fact that the 5C2 has sharp 'extensions' that extend beyond the flash-supressor? That's the only difference I see because the number of ports is the same and they both have a 'closed' 6th port. I agree that it looks more evil.

I just bought a 5C2 from Brightflashlights. It's off at ADCO now. Great price and service from Brightflashlights. I'd definately do business there again. A big +1

It makes sense to have the bottom of the flashhider closed to prevent dust from kicking up when shooting prone (like an A2). I have a 5 port Bushy Phantom (no closed bottom) and I recall it being suggested to NOT have one of the ports open in the 12 o'clock position.... I suppose to prevent muzzle flash from going straight up into your sight picture... is that true, or BS?


Oh, and I cannot wait to celebrate my preban EA (Coal Valley) lower losing it's value... YES!!

Bushmaster does have YHM-28 5C1 listed on their website. ($34.95 though- but if you are buying a new barrel this is a good deal to get it perm. installed)
