Well, I put the Mini-Y comp on my AR, and took it out to the range. I like it! It doesn't appear to affect accuracy at all, and it's doing what it's supposed to do. Yeah, it's a little louder, but jeeze, it's a .22! It ain't no battle rifle.

Greatly reduces jump. Reduces recoil to about 1.5X of .22 LR.

I just KNEW I'd get accused of being a troll.

WTF is it with the Mini-Y haters around here? The thing works GREAT!

I have no love for the mini Y comp. If you want everyone at your local range to get pissed and leave, then yea it works fantastic.

I still have one on one of my ARs, and I cant stand it either. As long as I am wearing hearing protection, it isnt too bad, but I definately dont take that rifle coyote hunting after going tone deaf one time.

Just got to quit procrasticating and send it to ADCO to have a phantom installed.

Oh, I see - I guess I should have bought $19,000 of testing data just so that I can convenience you?

That it, Speed?

OK, then.

I just bought a 11.5"/ 5.5" Bushy barrel, just so I'd have an excuse to take the comped barrel off the M4gery and send it to Adco for an exchange FH. (It's also an excuse to build another carbine, just don't let the 'lil lady know)

all it took was shooting the thing once without wraparound eye protection for me to fall in hate with it. was wearing a pair of normal sunglasses, and the blast thrown back at me was enough to make my eyes water. this was before i went prone.

when shooting prone with the mini-y, be prepared constantly to be hit in the face with the dirt, sawdust, pebbles, saplings, parking stops, HMMW-Vs, churches, and entire tectonic plates that the comp throws back at you.

the noise is no big deal. after all, you aren't standing next to you while you shoot.

kinda what I thought. You have no experience, no data and don't have the slightest fucking idea of what you are talking about.

Mini-Ys are ok as long as you arent shooting next to one.

- WTF....OVER?

The Mini-Y Comp is one of the best brakes on the market; bottom line it works. In direct proportion to it's effectivness, is the increase in the back blast, which makes it sound louder to the shooter. If all you're doing is sitting at a bench popping tin cans, then maybe you should pass on the brake. But, if you're trying to hit multiple targets with mutiple rounds at speed (read this as IPSC / Tactical Rifle), then the muzzle brakes / comps or a suppressor are the way to go.

Don't hate what you don't understand, it makes you sound like an idiot.

IIRC, that was an M240? or whatever the 5.56mm LMG is called...

M249 SAW

The 240B is the replacement for the M60

I have to concur with Rabbit9.

The Y-Comp brakes are probably the best at what they do. Recoil in an AR-15 is pretty mild, but the Y-Comp brakes virtually eliminate it, making highly accurate speed shooting very, very simple. Additionally, at night, the brake made cool, huge, star-shaped, Hollyweird-style muzzle flashes.

But my bottom-line impression is that it really is too damn loud. After squeezing off a round on a Mini-Y Comp-equipped rifle, you feel nearly the same pressure in your sinuses as you would after touching off a .50 BMG.

Greatly reduces jump. Reduces recoil to about 1.5X of .22 LR.

Just pointing out what prompted my original comment. Above and beyond how obnoxiously loud it is.
