Apparently you were typing as I was editing my post to correct myself.
The statement is correct as to the labeling though, as the lawyers on CalGuns have stated before in that as long as the words flash hider and/or suppression have NEVER been associated with a muzzle device (either in advertising or specifications) then it is legal according to the law. Now one that looks similar to an already known flash suppressor isn't going to fly that way.
Some comps can suppress flash but if that is listed as part of their specifications or a benefit of use then even though it is sold as a comp it is illegal according to the CA definition.
This is all in the realm of what could happen if you managed to step on your crank and end up in court on a weapons charge. It is very dependent on the jurisdiction and how aggressive the DA wants to be.

Government exists to protect us from each other. Where government has gone beyond its limits is in deciding to protect us from ourselves.
How fortunate for governments that the people they administer don't think.
Long time PTR owner here...great idea for a thread. Where is this PTR group?

I did not buy the used PTR because it did not have the paddle release, pic rail or current 5/8x24 threaded barrel and they wanted $900.00.
Keep in mind, I am in no way knocking the C308. I've read they are very good guns. My only experience is seeing the two at my lgs the other day and that's all I had to go on.

^^ I 2nd that
The fit and finish, welds and sights are much better on the PTR. But if you are just looking to send some 308/7.62 down range, the Century will do the job.
