This is something that I noticed when looking at HQ photos taken of a 416A7 for HK promotional materials a while back (as in nearly 2 years ago actually by the date of the photos).
Normally, the A7 has an open prong flash hider like what the HK433 and FN SCAR have. But in these photos, the rifle featured has twisted prongs like a CZ Bren 2 flash hider and is fitted for a QD silencer like a SureFire muzzle device or something similar. Anyone have a guess at who makes the muzzle device picutured?

Doesn’t look like any SF FH/MB I’ve ever seen. I’d love to see one some where else other than these pics.
Looks almost like a KAC with the threaded shoulder on it. But I’ve never seen a KAC twisted like that.

Sorry, but those are the only pics I've found. I'd say that it's a Surefire MD, but the prongs/tines are twisted (or seem to be) like a Bren 2 flash hider. I haven't seen such a thing at Surefire's site, though to be fair the photos are a couple of years old now.
Doesn't appear to be a Surefire
And it's certainly not a normal HK416 muzzle device. They normally either have HK's take on the A2 birdcage muzzle brake/flash hider, or a three prong open flash hider like what's been seen on the HK433s and similar to what's used on the Belgian spec FN SCARs.

Sounds ratchet to me.
