    For my unsuppressed guns, the
    PA AFAB/EFAB are all I use and they work very well for me.

    I had one hybrid that I immediately removed after taking my wife to an indoor range. The concussion from the SBR was brutal standing behind her at an angle. Even shooting it.
    Contrast this with a standard open Warcomp, which was completely different. I perceive a small benefit with the Warcomp, I think, but if nothing else it will be a convenient mount.

    I don't know how people don't feel a difference in recoil reduction. Maybe when I'm home I'll do as much of a side by side comparison as possible, but I know by feel whether I'm shooting a FH vs hybrid comp. If you honestly can't, then yeah I guess its not worth the cost.

    The length could be an issue for Surefire, but those are can mounts. Both BCM and BC have short and long variants.

    The blast - this may be the biggest reason I see. I've stood next to the BCM comp quite a bit, and have been in class next to a SureFire brake. Yeah its noticeable and if its possible, I'll take an extra step away, but unless you're a complete bitch, I just don't see how its a real issue. I'm not going to blame the guy next to me for wanting every mechanical advantage he can get to make his shooting better and I've never felt like its been an actual detriment to my shooting or learning. Granted, none of these were SBRs.

    If you like the A2, you'll like the 6315.

    Based on the A2 TDP, we made the 3 and 9 o'clock ports shorter and smaller to force more gas to be expelled through the upward facing ports. 6315's 20% better comp performance is "free", in that it's obtained without compromises such as more flash, noise and concussion.

    I do believe that. And I'm not trying to be a dick, I just legit don't understand how people are so bothered shooting next to 16" guns with hybrid comps.

    Only flash hider I have, aside from the KAC 3-prong that’ll get replaced when I feel like paying for a MAMS.

    I have moved away from them and put them on less used spare parts builds I have. Why?

    The concussion. I take a bunch of classes, it sucks to be that guy with the comp. I hate being next to some dick with a comp or brake in a class. I didn't want to be a hypocrite.

    I also found out the hard way that in non standard positions close to the ground, in and around barricades and under things like cars or in cars, they suck. Sht goes everywhere. Sand and dirt clouds choke you, block your vision for follow up shots, gets sht all in your optic and face ect. No thank you, not at all worth it. At 150$ the value was surely not there.

    I find something like the YHM Phantom to the best all around if you do not mount a suppressor. The closed bottom adds some compensation, The closed tines don't catch things like vines patrolling in the woods, it has great flash suppression and no extra concussion. It also only cost like 30$

    A comp is great for a hobby rifle firing from the standing position rapidly at something like steel at 25 yards. Tons of fun. On a real use carbine I don't see pro's out weighing the cons.

    I do own a closed tine warcomp, I have not used it enough to decide what I think.
    ^^This right here. I've been to several classes that prohibit comps and brakes for this reason.

    I had an EFAB on one of my carbines and it was great at flash suppression and reducing recoil without increasing blast, I thought I had found the perfect MD for my purpose, but the problem came when I was shooting in tight confined areas and through barricades, it would shed the plywood literally blowing it apart. I switch to a White Sound FOSSA and thus far have been very pleased.

    I'd like to try the MAMS but I bet it would do the same thing as the EFAB.

    Junkyard prone sucks with a comp, give you that. But just like night shooting, its pretty rare for most people IME.
