Phantom does not make Flash Hiders, they make Flash Suppressors.

ONCE AGAIN, for the newbs and those that just flat don't know.

This is a flash hider:



This is a flash suppressor:

Sorry for not calling it a "FLASH SUPPRESSOR"! Still just a FNG about some terms......Trapfan.

Neat photo of the hider. I'm curious about when it dates to and what firearm. It sorta reminds me of the early hearing aids.

Looks like a clamp on flash hider for an M1, M2, or M3 Carbine.

Got one of them "flash hider" on my Enfield No.5 it was one of the main reason I like the No.5 so much, beside being light and short it also came with a flash hider.

IIRC, the M1D had a 3-pronged FS, that looks sort of like an elongated early M16 type.

The Phantom 5C1 might as well be called a Flash Hider. It suppresses muzzle flash to the point it is completely hidden.
