i managed to get a uk legal L129A1 (no gas system) had the choice of the sure fire flash hider or the bird cage one, but since the sure fire was an extra £120 i went for the standard one! my question is is the sure fire flash hider better ??
 
Absolutely pointless unless you are somehow boring enough to hope someone comments upon how ally it looks.
 
It's pointless on a civilian rifle mate, the surefire really does what it says on the tin and hides the flash completely but it's simply not needed on civilian rifles.

cheers, can you still put a sound moderator over the a2 bird cage hiders ? i think you can just attach some sound moderators over the sure fire ones? might want to use one day for deer stalking maby
 
This thread right here is why you've been on my sigblock for a month.

You cock.
 
You sure about that?

1968 Firearms Act Section 57 (1) (c) says otherwise

any accessory to any such weapon designed or adapted to diminish the noise or flash caused by firing the weapon.

If a moderator needs a slot, then a flash hider needs one too! (for clarity - it it was an integral part of the barrel, then it wouldn't)

yes you are correct (my bad) it was integral part of the barrel, but its still can be removed with tools !

Then it's not an integral part of the barrel is it?

shit i just thought of that what a dick, all i know is that the bloke told me that i can 'upgrade' to the surefire flash hider at a later date so i assume it is just screwed in with very high strength loctite??
