Battlefield Performance Without Compromise
(Advanced Flash Arresting Brake)

Combines the performance of both a dedicated flash hider and a dedicated compensator. Patent-pending AFAB™ technology employs a complex matrix of tiny passageways that slowly diffuse and cool combustion gases so you can stay on target during rapid fire engagements while effectively suppressing muzzle flash and side concussion. Closed bottom design reduces dust signature when shooting prone. Precision machined from heat treated stainless steel with an advanced Ionbond® high temperature CrCN coating for extreme durability. Features 3/32″ pilot hole for permanent pinning to bring 14.5″ barrels to legal length.
The AFAB compensator is designed to fit .223 caliber (5.56mm) AR-15/M16/M4 style rifles with 1/2-28 muzzle threads.

Accu-Washer™ Muzzle Alignment System required for installation to achieve best performance (not included).

Up to this point for non-suppressed MD's I have used BattleComp 2 and Lantac Dragon. Love them both. Both oare excellent muzzle devices. Then came along the AFAB Hybrid, formerly known as AFAB Mini, little brother of the EFAB, close resemblance, though not related to the MAMS, the beloved KAC muzzle device. Yeah I'm ex-Army and I love acronyms, and I love this AFAB. The first time shooting it, was at the range where it was getting dark. I was planning on doing some nightfire training. Just at dusk, I decided to shoot a short video comparing the AFAB to my BattleComp (My Lantac was here at Rainier getting pinned. Can't wait to get it back.) So I set up mu iPhone and shot a couple of videos of of a 1-5 drill and a modified el prez drill. This was to evaluate the muzzle rise of the Precision Armament AFAB. I already knew the Battle Comp 2.0 was a good comp and did a good job of mitigating muzzle climb and so tha was the baseline of my video. I was not prepared fro how excellent the AFAB performed in terms of muzzle flash mitigation. Now I have to mention I did not have them on same length SBR's, and this makes a difference. The BC was on a 10.3 and the AFAB on an 11.5. I will run this same test but compare the AFAB on my 11.5 to a BattleComp on a 12" SBR to validate my thoughts. Anyway, it was basically going from a light show to a nighttime ready muzzle device. The AFAB performed almost as good as the BattleComp in managing muzzle rise, but where the AFAB shines is in flash mitigation. Round after round, and in the 1-5 drill you shoot progressively more rounds at 3 targets, so that on the 3, 4 and 5 round targets I was getting a lot of flash on the BC, but NO flash on the AFAB. I take that back I had one round where I saw a little flash, but round after round even as it got darker, you saw no flash. I would still give the nod to the BattleComp on reducing muzzle climb, but the AFAB did perform pretty well in this category as well. It is no slouch. So if you are looking for a muzzle device that does a pretty good job at reducing muzzle climb and an excellent job of managing flash, then this would be an excellent choice.
Rainier Arms. Always does an outstanding job. These guys came to me via a personal friend who knows the owner, and I must say Rainier delivers time after time. Also their branded parts are excellent as well. Hats off to Rainier Arms for carrying this MD and for being awesome.

Best Hybrid Muzzle Device Currently AvailableReview by
I've tried numerous muzzle devices looking for the best combination of flash/recoil/concussion & muzzle rise reduction. Physics prevents any one device from doing all of them really well, there must be tradeoffs.
The AFAB appears to have found the 'sweet spot' of doing them all as well as can be expected w/o unwanted unbalancing of one aspect to one extreme or the other.
Recoil is reduced by 50% (which contributes directly to reduction of muzzle rise) and muzzle rise is nearly eliminated w/o significantly more concussion or muzzle flash than an A2.
Short of going to the EFAB (which is more $$$ than I wanted to pay for the slight increase in performance), I don't think you'll find a better hybrid muzzle device if you're looking for one to do it all.

Very good productReview by
Like what it does and looks are outstanding. not big and ugly its a cool look Hides flash excellent decent for recoil, but its more flash hider than recoil device. It handles recoil to a good level but not as much as my SJC Titan but its much quieter So I'm glad I bought it well machined and high quality in fit and finish. (Posted on 3/7/2016)
A lot of money spent to get here. Review by
I have tried every style and design of brake, comp, and flash hider in some form or fashion. I picked up the afab mini and stopped looking because for my needs it is and has been the holy grail through thousands of rounds. I needed a comp that would work well in a team setting on not piss of the guy standing next to you. The Afab has limited over pressure and noise to the shooter and is very reasonable to those around you in a stack of on the firing line. Flash suppression is more than acceptable. Shooting at night isn't much more noticeable than an a2 birdcage which is more than enough for me. The best part is its recoil characteristics. Not quite as soft as an open 3 port style surefire type brake but eliminates all muzzle rise and doesn't cause muzzle dip like some comps do. To sum it up on my 16" mid length centurion barrel it is the best performing muzzle device I have used and is extremely flat shooting. It does everything extremely well and leaves nothing for me to be desired. (Posted on 2/16/2015)
