By employing a series of helical slots that match the twist rate of your AR15 rifle, the new line of flash suppressors from Micor Industries not only reduce muzzle flash and muzzle climb, but also increases velocity by an average of 100 feet per second over a standard A2 flash suppressor, while also promoting better accuracy. The Micor Industries flash suppressor is built to withstand the most rigorous combat environments, as well as satisfy the demands of the precision shooter who is looking for an accuracy advantage over the competition. Provisions have also been made to attach a blank firing adapter or a noise suppressor if the user so chooses. Available calibers from .223 to .30 and twist rates of 1:7, 1:8, 1:9, and 1:10. The new line of flash suppressors from Micor Industries takes flash suppressor technology to the next level.

I was looking for a hoist-the-BS-flag smilie, but we don't seem to have one.

The Gunblast.com review cited on Micor's website notes accuracy increase with some ammo, no change with others...what i might expect with random testing using no fh.

I'd suggest selecting a flash hider with the main criteria as how much the flash is supressed.;)

How does the flash suppressor increase velocity?

I'm guessing because it matches the twist rate of your barrel.

How does the flash suppressor increase velocity?

"...Micor only claims a velocity increase over the velocity using a standard A-2 flash suppressor, not a claim of higher velocity by simply adding the flash suppressor..." -Gunblast

I still don't see that happening.

It's not so different than the TROY flash suppressor, minus the tips.

this one? ;)
:icon_bs:

And yeah, I agree... though I don't mind if it reduces recoil, too!

Looks an awful lot like the Surefire flash hider, but "ribbed for her pleasure."

I'm still trying to figure out their claims.

The only advantage I could see is if it were also timed so that the slots were timed with the groves of the barrel so that as the bullet left the crown and gas escaped from the groves first, they could pass through the slots without being obstructed by the suppressor's walls. This could be an advantage fo a flash suppressor, and definitely a plus for a sound suppressor, but probably a hude disadvantage for a muzzle brake.

It sounds more like those Extreme Shock rounds than anything else. I also tend to take 'professional' gun reviewer's articles with a very large grain of salt. You have to remember that most of these guys make a living by selling you stuff, even if that stuff is not up to par. If saying Product A is better than Product B will get them double the revenue and advertising for their magazine, then guess what they are saying, even if it's not true.

for $59.95...

it is NOT difficult to do a quick test to confirm/deny their claims.... regarding accuracy and velocity....

anyone know where to get one? brownells?

ETA: save the work.... here it is ... http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=3&f=12&t=444390

Looks more like a KAC QDSS N4 adapter/flash suppressor

What does matching the twist rate of the barrel accomplish? :confused: It is the bullet that is spinning, not the gas.

Does it make tea too?

I am wary of those claims.

I guess I will keep using the AAC Blackout.

+1 especially that V notch

I doubt that its flash suppressing effectiveness can beat blackout.......
