Used by US armed forces worldwide, the US Dept of Homeland Security and law enforcement agencies across the nation, the Vortex flash hider features a patented 15 degree, right hand helical flute design that effectively eliminates muzzle flash.

This Vortex flash hider comes equipped with M22x1.0 outside threads for use specifically with an OPS Inc sound suppressor. This model is designed for use with AR-10 rifles in 308 Win/ 7.62mm.
