Thanks from a new member for all the help you've provided so far. I just sent my preban to DRC to get the treatment. I would like some opinions on Muzzle brakes verses flash hiders. I am going to have Dave install the Choate front sight. He can make it into either a flash hider or brake since my gun is a preban. Since there is not much recoil with these guns in .223, wouldn't the flash hider be the way to go or does the muzzle brake help you that much in staying on target with follow up shots. I would think the flash hider would seem signifcantly quieter to the shooter. Any opinions would be appreciated, thanks.
