So for target shooting, understand that compensators do not do much from a bipod or sandbag supported position. These are not "muzzle brakes" per se. These are devices used to redirect recoil to reduce muzzle rise for faster follow up shots. You may not feel anything different then a standard A2 cage from a bipod. So, the PWS is just going to piss off your neighbors at the range by making he concussion from your puny 5.56 feel like a .338. If you do your target shooting offhand, then disregard this, because from a standing position, the difference is dramatic.
For carbine courses, as mentioned, they're a bit annoying to your neighbors and can be irksome when practicing buddy drills with someone using them.
I have to second the recommendation of the battlecomp given your use case. The battlecomp isn't as good of a compensator, but honestly, we're dealing with 5.56 here. The battlecomp does reduce muzzle climb quite a bit, and it does so without the annoying concussion of some other brakes. I run one (a 2.0) on my MR556. I'm trying to be objective though. If you said your primary use was 3gun, I'd recommend another device.
OP, the other guys in thread have been very.....uh....."nice" in describing this muzzle brake.
Yes, it reduces muzzle climb and flet recoil.
But if my buddy who has one on his AR decides to shoot next to me again without warning me, i'm going to take his rifle and shove it up his a** sideways. I'll listen to his complaints later after my hearing has returned and my head stops feeling like I just got hit in the face with a hammer even though he was at least 4 to 6 feet away from me.
It's VERY loud and obnoxious device and anybody who uses it in a situation where people are within 10 feet of eachother need to have their balls crushed in a vise......
Most of the people with nice stuff replace whatever they can just because it's replaceable For some reason most of the Scar 16's I see have AAC compensators on them.Wow, well put I would have to say. This thing ain't a crowd pleaser. Thank you all for the insight.
What do all the folks do with their SCAR 16S? No close combat drills?
Nice. I wish I coulda seen that.I've attended a class where the instructor handed a guy an A2 and a wrench.
All these muzzle brakes are highly offensive to those standing on the side. The one leg up that BC has is there's is also geared towards flash suppression when compared to these other brakes.I don't have experience with the PWS brake or the BattleComp. But from what I heard, the Battlecomp is a lot less harsh to ears and ppl beside you compared to other brakes and was designed for CQB.
Agreed. From what I heard, the Battlecomp is less harsh to ears than many other brakes (not my experience, just from what other ppl said). Stacy at PWS told me that the FSC556 does an acceptable job at reducing flash.All these muzzle brakes are highly offensive to those standing on the side.

I'd love to do a test, but down here I realistically don't have a place I can fire in low light conditions.Agreed.

Hopefully, people who have experience with those 2 compensators can give us some feedback.
