View Full Version : New Scope and question

Got this new scope today-- Nightforce 2.5-10X to go on my M1A Scout project --

Pop up lens caps have polarizing filters so you could see through them on particularly sunny day may help you make your shot.

Also at SHOT show saw these two extremely well made M1A muzzle brakes -- The upper is clearly a brake, and the lower only has two half slots open on top but retains look of original Nam era FS. Would you say that it is a Brake or a Flash Suppressor from this picture -- What are exact rules to determine -- ?

Who made the brakes and what are they calling them? The lower one made to mimic the original flash sup. might not do as well as a brake anyway and certainly from a distance might draw attention.

No exact rules, CA allows manufacturers to declare if its a flash hider or a brake. Usually small exit hole - brake, big hold - flash hider.

Young Manufacturing in Arizona. Excellent materials and quality. I WANT a gun that looks like the original M14, but it may draw attention...

Fulton makes a brake that has a bayo lug...little holes instead of slits...
