The Sommers Vortex Flashhider was invented, designed and refined by Sonja Sommers of Smith Enterprise, Inc. It is a patented accessory (U.S. pat. no. 5596161). The Vortex is the most copied, but never equaled, flashhider on the market.
The Vortex is machined from 8620 bar stock steel, then case-hardened to provide a tough core and hard surface for maximum strength, black-parkerized finish. 21/4" long, .861" diameter. It is Sound Suppressor capable.
The Vortex is not a timed item, when it is tightened that's where it is. The Vortex does not required the use of a lock washer.
The Vortex conceals the flash essentially 99.999% - even on full auto.
The Vortex carries a conditional lifetime guarantee.
The Vortex is in service with many Law Enforcement agencies throughout the U.S. The Vortex has been used in combat by the U.S. Military ( 2nd Inf. Div., 25th Inf. Div., 10th Special Forces Group, US Navy SEALS ).
Four specially angled flutes dissipate the gas but contain the unburned powder allowing increased residual burn for less visible flash.
