Smith Enterprise Vortex Flash Eliminator - 1/2x28
I bought one of the Smith Vortex's several years ago when I got into AR's. Actually got a chance to do some night firing and was amazed at the difference between this and the M-16 I used in Nam ... star shaped flash (M-16) to almost nothing with Vortex. Okay, it was noticeable but much more subdued. I'm in the process of building a couple more Ar's so when I saw this on PA for cheap (much more on other sites but much less than I paid for a few years ago) I bought one...and then they put it on sale 2 days later...really? OMG, then I realized I can hook up a suppressor to it so I bought a couple more at the sale price. Now I just have to justify suppressors. Great prices, quick shipping and awesome customer service makes a wicked combination that will assault your wallet. It's all good though! :)
Fits my M&P 15-22 perfect. Looks great
Great upgrade, easy to install.
I really like that this Eliminator does'nt need a washer. Torque is low enough not to distort barrel/accuracy. Thanks for the sale price I bought mine for less than half the price other companies are Charging.
Great product. Does a great job. Eliminates the flash. Tuning fork sound but not worried about it.
... of the Vortex Flash Eliminator from Smith Enterprises and Videos located on their website including ones attached to .50 cal. and night shooting. I'm happy to finally purchase one of these. I was going to get another to place on a Mossberg MVP Patrol, but to my chagrin... the sale was off, that $20 savings sure does make a difference.
Excellent product PA rocks
Virtually eliminates flash.
Works great and fits perfectly.
Got this on sale, it was a great price!
Noticed a slight decrease in muzzle rise, noise and sideways recoil over the already awesome a2 birdcage and of course no flash at all. Would highly recommend to pair this up with a midlength gas system on a 16 inch barrel and a spikes tactical st-t2. That way you will have no flash and a smooth predictable recoil.
Works great, couldn't be happier.
Fair prices and excellent customer service. One of the best in the biz..... And they actually answer their phones which is something to say in these troubled times concerning the firearms industry. THANKS PA!
The finish is nice, I see no blemishes. No machining marks anywhere. It does exactly what is says.
Awesome product, great service and super fast shipping! :)
Put this on my Sig 556 7.5 in pistol, looks great and very easy to install. No crush waser needed.
Awesome product, great service and super fast shipping! :)
This is my 4th one I have bought. They are awesome thats all I use now in all my builds!
I have placed two orders and the service was very prompt.
Looks way better than birdcage
I have a Vortex on all of my 5.56 firearms. What else can I say other than that.
The Smith Vortex Flash Eliminator is an outstanding piece of kit. I have not found a similar product from any manufacturer that works as well (and I've tested a bunch of them. Primary Arms had an outstanding price and of course their customer service is always tier 1.
Does exactly what it's supposed to do. This vortex went on a 7" pistol.... zero flash, yes, the lights were turned off. Paired up perfectly with the yhm slr carbine length handguard, just the prongs of the vortex are past the handguard. As usual, PA shipped super fast.
After a nice clean up, this item was easy to install and after a nighttime shooting session, I can see why the Smith Vortex is the top choice in flash hiders. I am very happy with this purchase.
Good price for an awesome product! I did some research trying to find the best flash suppressor. This one of the best.
Outstanding quality from this flash eliminator; works flawlessly with my Daniel Defense M4V5 LW and all the ammunition I've run through it, handloads and factory both. I haven't noticed any "twang" sound when shooting as mentioned by others and overall I'm very satisfied with this. Primary Arms had the best price I could find for this and shipped it quickly and with zero hassle for me.
I ordered it on a Friday and received it on that Monday with standard shipping. Can't test out the part yet due to still building rifle.
The flash hider was a breeze to install and the helpful folks at Primary Arms are always a pleasure to deal with.
Great flash hider, the so-called 'ping' is hardly noticeable!
Great product, it's name says it all. I use mine with a thermal scope for night hog hunts, no "bloom" in my scope as others will leave.
I love dealing with primary always fast shipping always great customer service and no bs. I will definitely buy from them again
This is my first build even if I have used AR15/M4 for over 8 years. I never heard of this flash suppressor prior visiting Primary Arms, I trusted their recommendations and once at the range, I was amazed by the zero flash visible!!! Primary Arms has once again recommended a quality professional product while keeping it affordable! Thanks Primary Arms!!!
Haven't instaled it yet as I am waiting on the upper but it has quality written all over the design and machine work.
All went smooth and product was in great shape.
Haven't shot it yet with it on. Looks a lot better than a birdcage and installed very easy.
I have not had a chance to get to the range yet, but installation went smooth well and the part itself is nicely made. Very impressed.
I did an impromptu night shoot with a YHM Phantom and the Vortex. I don't think there was any flash from the Vortex. It has a the right diameter so a bayonet can still be mounted.
This flash ELIMINATOR!!!!! is the best for the money you can buy
This product works, as you may already know, since our military uses them to some extent. I've field tested mine and am very satisfied. I especially like how this product doesn't seem to be as overpriced as some of the competition does. As an added benefit, the Smith Vortex also looks good on my rifle. The primary benefit bieng of course a very much diminished flash signature coming from your rifle when shot in the dark. Get this product, it will serve you far better than any sort of muzzle break which just isn't needed on this caliber in my humble opinion.
I purposefully tested my first AR build late in the evening so I could see this hider perform in the dark. Wow, I love the results.
As described, fast shipping from PrimaryArms.com- Thank you!
Great service and amazingly fast shipping, i was going to place this on a bushmaster upper, but did not know that it has a permanent izzy on it, o well another excuse to buy another upper, Thank you for the great service primary arms!!!
The Vortex is my favorite Flash Hider currently in the market. I have it installed in all my 5.56 AR-15 and once I can get a clear answer about what is the TPI of the Colt 7.62x39mm 16 inch barrel I will get one for it and then all my ARs will have vortex. I installed the last one on a 11.5 inch barrel 5.56 AR pistol and the different from the A2 modified Flash hider/compensator.
