somebody gave me one in the wrap, a few years ago. i put it on a shelf, and have not touched it since, as comps are so loud. after reading all the current hype on the battlecomp , i got to wondering about the smith comp. anybody use one?? loud??? manage any recoil??? after all, it's free––––thanks in advance

I believe the Sonia Sommers-designed (a really hot babe) Flash Hider is actually called the Vortex.

Had the Smith comp. Reduces muzzle rise. To me it didn't seem to affect recoil. Has a sharp report that hurts if you're a bystander, the shooter doesn't notice it.

i guess the best way to find out, is take it to the range and install for side-by-side testing.

you will not make any friends at the range! but, if you need a comp on a 223, i think they have been proven to work well.

ETA: i had one of these on a ban era QPC rifle. trying to shoot next to it was imposable. the thing would rattle your teeth, blow your targets of your bench, and give you a bit of peppering. shooting outside and your the one with the rifle it was not so bad. this was on a 16in heavy barrel with an a2 stock. I don't know that it did any good, but there was a tread with a testing of various comps and i think it did fair to good. I had it for aesthetics for such a wrong looking rifle.

this is why it has never been installed. i ordered a battlecomp, after all the latest hype, just remembered having this one.
