I have noted at the YHM site that they have a Phantom Comp/Brake. How long is it and how effective, they even have a combo FH/brake. Any reccomendations for a 16" shorty?

I really like the look of the phantoms...I also really like the vortexs.

I have a phantom on my 20in AR and it does a great job of hiding the flash and it looks evil.

This phantom: Phantom 5C1 Comp/Flash Suppressor is only different than a regular phantom because the bottom port is closed...thus not kicking up dirt when shooting prone. Length wise they are about 2 1/4 in.

Heres a great site to see the effectiveness of different flash hiders
www.silencertests.com/flash.htm

If I were you I'd go with either a phantom or the vortex...either one looks killer and does a very nice job.

Hope that helps.

+1

I have both the Phantom model 5C1 (flat front) and 5C2 (serrated front) models and they're similar to the A2 FS except longer.

I like the Vortex too, they're both top in performance.

i like the phantoms and the vortex



if you think the phantom comp is what you like then get and try it out, afterwards let us know how it works

Are you looking for effectiveness as a flash hider or as a brake?
The 5C2 works effectively as a flash hider, and has some compensating effect as the ports do not direct any gasses downward. I have one on my SPR and like it.

Most brakes don't do much to supress a flash. Many actually bring it right up into the line of sight.

I am looking for a brake, I shoot funzies 3-gun and barrel jump makes a second shot a re-sighting process. A FH and brake would be wonderfull.

I am curious if it is ATF approved. I live in the PRNJ and need something on the end of my barrel. Sorry to hijack.

Of course its approved, its a brake/comp. not a flash-hider.
