Found out this afternoon that smith enterprise Inc. is going to make another run of Vortexes for our metric FALs. They made a small run early in 2005 and they're making another run know of 50-100 units. I think Ron just got tired of everyone screaming for these. He's amking a run for the G-3/HK-91/PTR line as well. They will all be suprpessor capable.

Pretty easy to picture. Take the ole open ended Steyr flash hider, add a twist to it, slap a U.S. patent on it and an insane price tag.Viola.

+1. I think the last time they were $75. That is insane.

I've got one from the original lot fitted to my StG-58. I also noticed a slight accuracy improvement with the lighter ammo tested (147 Porto M-80 and 110 gr TAP). Looking forward to trying it our with an M14DC suppressor this spring.

Called in late this afternoon to order another Vortex for my para build and for our M-249s. Looks like the FAL units will be available in about thirty days, along with the G-3 Vortexii.
