    Any thoughts on AR muzzle devices? I've been thinking about the Troy Claymore. Anybody have a personal favorite?

    Edit for context: I've got a 3 port muzzle brake on my AR at the moment and while it looks great, I feel like an bubblegum hole at the range blasting shooters sitting on either side. I love the concept a muzzle brake but would like to find something a little more "friendly".

    14.5" with a 1.6" 3 port muzzle brake at the moment so a little over 16".

    I'm getting rid of the muzzle in favor of a different one

    Just remember to be counted for length it has to be permanently attached, http://www.atf.gov/files/publications/download/p/atf-p-5320-8/atf-p-5320-8-chapter-2.pdf

    The ATF procedure for measuring barrel length is to measure from the closed bolt (or breech-face) to the furthermost end of the barrel or permanently attached muzzle device. Permanent methods of attachment include full-fusion gas or electric steel-seam welding, high-temperature (1100°F) silver soldering, or blind pinning with the pin head welded over. Barrels are measured by inserting a dowel rod into the barrel until the rod stops against the bolt or breech-face. The rod is then marked at the furthermost end of the barrel or permanently attached muzzle device, withdrawn from the barrel, and measured.

    My buddy has one of the Battlecomps........though I've got a Surefire, an AAC and a Noveske, if you want recoil control/the darn finest brake I've ever seen, the Battlecomp is truly it....or until I find something else that's better.
