The advanced SureFire three-prong flash hider features a patent-pending design that greatly reduces muzzle flash-typically greater than 99%-when compared with a plain muzzle. Boasting robust tines built to withstand the rigors of combat, the SureFire three-prong flash hider also serves as a rock-solid mounting adapter for SureFire SOCOM Series Fast-Attach(R) suppressors. Precision machined from US mill-certified heat-treated stainless steel bar stock-and including high-precision single-point cut threads for optimum thread interface-the SureFire three-prong flash hider flash hider is given a black Ionbond DLC coating to provide maximum protection under harsh environmental conditions and to facilitate cleaning, even after extreme use. When used in conjunction with a SureFire SOCOM Series suppressor, the patent-pending design of the SureFire three-prong flash hider provides multiple bearing surfaces to ensure superior suppressor alignment and to prevent the audible ringing of tines inside the suppressor. A rear labyrinth seal minimizes potential carbon buildup in the indexing system and facilitates suppressor removal after extended firing. SureFire flash hiders are individually inspected for concentricity and alignment and are covered by SureFire’s No-Hassle Guarantee.
