Surefire, and the FN ECP flash hiders are excellent choices. I'm sure there are others that are comparable.
lol !!! Oookkkksuppressor - wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
from the section under "naming"
"while suppressors are referred to as "silencers", the latter is misleading because no firearm can be made completely silent, as the term "silencer" implies. Functionally, a suppressor is meant to diminish the report of a discharged round, or make its sound unrecognizable. Other sounds emanating from the weapon remain unchanged. Even subsonic bullets make distinct sounds by their passage through the air and striking targets, and supersonic bullets produce a small sonic boom, resulting in a "ballistic crack". Semi- and fully automatic firearms also make distinct noises as their actions cycle, ejecting the fired cartridge case and loading a new round. Despite being misleading, the term "silencer" is still widespread."
Are you actually looking for a flash hider? Or are you looking for another muzzle treatment to change the way the SCAR feels/acts when you shoot it?
Shootable without ear pro means a suppressor.I've got the Yankee Hills QD. Soley switched to it to dampen the noise. Thinkin bout a battle comp. I definitely feel the recoil on my 17 now. I'm worried battle comp may be too loud too. I use hear pro, but like to keep my rifle set up to be shootable without. I'm hoping to run into someone who has one and get to shoot it first, but that's just an illusive dream I think. I hate to spend the money and do the switch and decide to switch back. Decisions decisions ?
Even with the best suppressors, supersonic .308/7.62 NATO rifles are not hearing safe. They're much less damaging, but still damaging. I've seen .308 measured @ 165db from a 18" barrel. My AAC 762-SDN-6, for example, is rated at 25dB of reduction for 7.62 NATO. That puts it at 140dB, which is the level at which OSHA says impulse noise is damaging. Even if you're slightly below it, you're still doing damage. I believe the military goes with <140dB == safe, but I highly suggest avoiding any impulse noise even at 130dB.Shootable without ear pro means a suppressor.
No other way around that. A 7.62/308 is LOUD.
