Last week, I took my ACR and SCAR16 to the range. Both are in basically stock trim. They both shot really well, but I liked the way the scar's muzzle didn't rise. It was more of a push rearwards. My ACR would rise and move left slightly. So, it took a second to re-acquire the target.

I bought a PWS FSC556 for it and headed out to the range. Wow, exactly what I was hoping for. No rise just a push. To say the least I'm pleased that both my SCAR and now my ACR shoot exactly the way I want them....

Oh, if I do have one very minor complaint, the ACR tends to "ding" my brass. Its not horrible, but it dings the brass and needs to be watched closely when I reload...

Thanks for the writeup. Im limited on muzzle devices I can use and the one you use is a non flash suppression device so its legal in my state. Im not sure if mines pinned or welded on or anything but im sure adco can do the install. Id like to do this soon. My dpms bull twenty is super accurate but its only for target it has a target grown but no supressor or anything so its a bit slow on licking up on the target after each shot.

+1 I've seen them for $75 but pas has a 10% off for military/leo anyway. I imagine though they would still honor the warranty if you bought it elsewhere.

If you don't care about flash suppression and noise and just want it to push back a Miculek muzzel brake is the way to go in my opinion, and its relatively cheap.

Cool ill look at all the options. I don't think my state allows ones listed as flash supressors. I know the end has to be the diameter of the bullet.

I hadn't heard about any actual reports on the Miculek muzzle brake or know anyone that has one. What I mean I didn't want to buy/try something blind. The PWS is mounted on my SCAR and I know how that felt. So, for me the few dollars extra was worth it to me.

Yeah, I don't shoot at night so I'd rather have a muzzle brake that keeps me on target than the suppressor. And if for some reason that need arises, I've still go the stock suppressor.

No worries, you guys are welcome!

I got mine from antarespro.com for 83.99 and 9 bucks shipping. Probably not the cheapest, but I figure the difference from low to high for this probably a 25 buck difference...

I've got one on mine and I love it, too. Gotta get it cut and pinned for a 16" OAL

is it longer than the factory one by a little bit? What's the pinning exactly? Makes it not easily removable? Would the basic ones be pinned then? Id imagine its just someting to have adco or someone mount then correct?

I'd have to check regarding the length. The pinning permanently attaches the muzzle device to the barrel. The basic model is not pinned, but I believe the state-compliant model is. I'm going to have mine done at ADCO. They will cut the barrel and attach the brake in order to (sorta) SBR the rifle without the need for a form 1. In order to remove the brake after being pinned, you'd have to destroy the brake.

I just want to shave some weight off the end.

So id be in good shape getting this new brake anyway. If the old one isn't needed anymore its fine of they have to destroy it.

Sure. I'm pretty sure that you can still retrofit it down the line with a standard thread or re-pin another device.
