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).

- Best Hybrid Muzzle Device Currently AvailableReview by Thomas
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. (Posted on 6/25/2016)
