Details

The Precision Armament M4-72 Severe-Duty Compensator has a large initial expansion chamber which allows combustion gases to first expand and then dissipate at lower pressures. This combined with angled vents redirect lower pressure gases to the side and rearward delivering superior recoil reduction with minimal blowback and felt concussion. In addition, vents are precisely canted upward virtually eliminating muzzle rise and dust printing. Collectively, these features allow significantly greater reduction in recoil and muzzle rise compared to similar sized compensators. Precision machined from high strength HTSR 400-series stainless steel bar for superior heat and corrosion resistance. The M4-72 can withstand the extreme heat of combat conditions and automatic fire without being subject to rapid erosion. Designed to fit .223 caliber (5.56mm) AR-15/M16/M4 style rifles with 1/2-28 muzzle threads. Available in ultra wear resistant DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) matte black finish. Will accept devices designed to fit over the standard A2 flash suppressor. Accu-Washer Muzzle Alignment System recommended for installation.

  • Material: HTSR 416 stainless steel bar, HRC 26-32
  • Finish: Matte black DLC finish

Saw a Youtube video of a guy comparing around 30 different muzzle devices. This one did great and the price is in the middle. Took off an A2 and replaced it with the M4-72 for a major difference. Almost no muzzle rise or felt recoil. Super fast 3 rounds per target during 3 gun matches with tight groups. I put them on all my unsuppressed rifles. Highly recommend it. (Posted on 9/14/2016)

Better than expected. Review by Joseph

This product was featured on a massive muzzle brake/comp comparison by a popular gun related website and it ranked number one on recoil reduction.

Looks: The picture does not do it justice, it is very aesthetically pleasing on the end of my rifle, and it will not be mistaken for a standard muzzle device. I was initially planning on getting a different compensator that looked more aggressive, however I am more than pleased with the looks of this one. It compliments my Fortis Night Rail nicely.

Performance: I have installed this on a 16 in .223 wylde barrel and it is absolutely incredible! The recoil reduction is mind blowing and there is sufficient fire blast from the end. It is not a good flash suppressor, it is one of the best compensators on the market however. It seems to be louder than the standard A2 birdcage but nothing ridiculous. The gasses blow to the side of the barrel and can be louder to the person beside you. I shot this side by side with a friend who had the same build, we had no issues but the old man to my right complained that I had a "Howitzer."

****No washers included**** you will need to purchase some to complete the installation.

5/5 I would purchase this for all my future builds without question.

Also Kia needs to take a chill pill. Rainerarms has been excellent in my multiple purchases from them. They do stock some of the best products that are in extreme demand, and because of this, stock is often an issue with all vendors. I have found them to have what I needed in stock on 3 occasions when I could not find the items anywhere else.

I'm happy with the product I ordered. However the process to purchase something with a gift card is unusual and honestly a hassle. In addition, There seems to be a lot of items that are out of stock for an extended period of time. Frankly, I like Rainier Arms, but I am forced to go and do business with other companies because you guys don't stock anything. I have been searching for parts about 2 years with little to no satisfaction. At this point I'm just trying to spend the remaining balance of my gift card to get it over with, as you guys don't have many parts in stock. (Posted on 7/16/2016)

Put this on the end of a 20" Larue barrel with a good adjustable gas block and the gun has zero muzzle climb or recoil. I am very impressed with it and will be buying more. (Posted on 12/27/2015)

This was the last thing i needed for my build. With my rainier arms medcon 20 inch barrel and the adams arms piston system i have very very light recoil.

It has a solid feel to it and seems very well machined.

The rings kit for installing it do make it pretty easy to line it up correctly. (Posted on 4/9/2015)
