    A flash hider has no affect on accuracy. It is a flash hider, period!

    RYU:

    Some (not me) but some, will argue that the absence of a flash suppresor/break will allow the gasses to expand evenly as the bullet leaves the muzzle giving better accuracy...These are people that are obviously more intelligent than I, because I just cannot see that it would make that much difference, but then I have no proper education in this field.

    On the same note, The American Military University (AMU) claim findings that a muzzle attachment screwed on too tightly will minutely distort the bore just enough to cause cause less than desired accuracy, so if its a screw on attachment, hand tighten that bad boy, and leave it be.

    What you are talking about is the muzzle crown and has nothing to do with a flash hider. It breaks up the muzzle flash, only!

    It cuts down muzzle rise when the bullet leaves the barrel. Has nothing to do with accuracy!!!!!! ;)
