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.

I am quite pleased, and plan to look into this version (or similar) for my other calibers of rifles. (Posted on 11/7/2016)

- Better than expected. Review by Joseph
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.

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)
