How it going folks?

I just ordered a 5.45 AR upper and was wondering if I could use a 5.56/223 flash hider for my 5.45 upper?
I figure wouldn't be a problem because the 5.45 is smaller than the 5.56/223 but before I do anything wrong I thought I double check with you guys.

I already have the 5.56/223 flash hiders these are what they look like.

I know the top one actually works as a flash hider, I have used them on my 5.56/223 upper, the second one is more are less for show.

that top one looks more like a muzzle brake then a FH, but yes anything 5.56 will work fine for you 5.45 i have a 5.56 battlecomp on my 5.45 upper.

I have to agree with you on this but 2 websites I checked out said it was a Flash Hider so that's what I went with.

Thank's Guy's for the help.
