Stainless A2-Style Birdcage Flash Hider (5 Slots)

  • 3457


This is the classic A2 birdcage muzzle device made in Stainless Steel. Not much else to say; this is designed to hide flash, not reduce recoil. 

The bottom area is solid to reduce dust kick-up when shooting prone. If you want a really old-school look and don't plan to shoot prone, you might be interested in the A1 version that has 6 slots evenly spaced all around.

Installation Difficulty:

Tools required: Armourer's wrench (or any ¾” wrench) and Upper Vice Block or barrel vice

Installation notes: This device requires 'timing' i.e. when it's all tightened in place, the solid side of the flash hider should face downward to minimize dust kick-up when shooting prone (and if the solid side was not on the bottom it would just look weird). Timing can be achieved by luck, by crushing the crush washer, and/or using shims or filing down the flash hider itself.

Remember to orient the crush washer with the tapered side towards the gun, as shown in the diagram below:
