Replicas of Early .308 AR Hiders from the Late 1950s
The Brownells BRN-10 Flash Hiders are inspired by the two types of flash hider found on early .308 AR-pattern rifles - making them ideal to cap off the business end of your "Retro" battle rifle build.
The BRN-10 Open 3-Prong model replicates the hider found on Sudanese and early Dutch .308 ARs, while the Closed 3-Prong model replicates the hider found on many Portuguese and later production Dutch rifles. What’s the difference? The Closed model is more resistant to breaking if the muzzle accidentally strikes a hard surface (hence the change on the originals). The good news is that either model will give ANY AR-308 rifle a unique appearance - and do an excellent job reducing the fireball coming from the muzzle!
- Machined carbon steel
- Durable, hard black QPQ finish
- 5/8"-24 thread pitch
- Clearance hole: .320" - excellent for .308 rifles, as well as .243 Winchester, 6.5mm Creedmoor, etc.
Both Brownells BRN-10 Flash Hiders come with a modern-day high-tech QPQ finish that is far more durable than the Parkerized or black oxide finishes of the Old Days, yet replicates the matte black / dark gray finish of the originals. Complete your .308 AR battle rifle build with one today!
