Default CETME L Fake Hider going into production

Almost ready to go into production for a Cetme L Fake hider and wanted to get opinions on what look everyone prefers. Please vote even if you don't plan on getting one, but I'd like you to comment on why you like the version you choose.

Here's a photo from Atlantic that shows the original 3-prong hider in all it's glory




here are the 2 options

prototype #1 - More taper than orginal (closer to retro AR 3-prong)



Prototype #2 - same exterior dimensions



Spoiler alert....We went with a revised version of #2...see post #21

I like #2 because it keeps the same lines.

Number two, maybe with a bit more chamfer on the end inside and out, plus a few degrees radius on the flutes.

Give it a bit more depth/3d appearance to better match the original lines/shadow.

I can't vote, there is no option on mobile. Also I do not own this particular firearm. I like to look up number one, but I think number two could be improved upon as somebody else said.

Thank you for the comments and PM's, but I think this will be close to final. PM me if you really prefer #1 and I'll see what I can do about a small run

#2 for me and yes I'd be interested in buying one. I just never liked the 3 prong one....#2 just has a more traditional look, imo.

one more pic of the side profile of style #2. Don't mind the burrs on this one. The production version will be nice and clean

It's time to bring up the next potential issue for some. The original was torqued on using a bar/key between the gap between the tines.

This fake hider won't have that luxury. The thought was to using a strap wrench (or pliers and a leather strap) to torque it down against the stock lock washer.

Seeing the pick of number two from a different angle gives a little better perspective. I definitely like the looks of it.

Id be ok with wrench flats, but Iím sure Iím in the minority. A set of vice grips and cork/leather will work fine to snug it up.

What!?!
No bacon.....you can't have a pole with out bacon

I like number 2.
If I was in the market, I would buy one.

How about some thing for the AR? A lot of folks took the flash suppressor off and replaced it with a thread protector. looks kinda funky.

Take care

I like the idea of original looking thread protectors, allows the possibility of putting the bayonet on and keeps the original look. Went the same route for my PTR. Also stays legal without having to go to a loud brakes or one of the weird aggressive looking ones that are all the rage now. Finding a cal legal muzzle device for a 5.56 galil ARM is nigh impossible without resorting to something crazy like the twisted menace.

Smith Enterprises makes the Good Iron brake with 13x1 threads for the Galil. Or try a 13x1 to 1/2x28 adapter. I shoot m Galil ACE rifles with them, they work well. I picked up both options for my Galil ARM thatís being built right now. Other than that, not a whole lot out there.

#2 wins!!!



They will be cerakoted in a matte black. Will start taking payments at the end of next week, 4/18. $45 shipped.

As the cetme L is not going to be a ground mover in terms of total volume in CA, I am only making a limited quantity.

Please re-post in my sales thread or PM me after 4/18 if interested in claiming one
