Great Sale price

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.

Based on reviews...

... 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.

Got this on sale, it was a great price!

Does the job
JORGE HERNANDEZ from AZ wrote on July 20, 2015:

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.

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.

Bill G from MN wrote on July 20, 2015:

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.

Excellent flash hiding capabilities
John Garcia from TX wrote on July 20, 2015:

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.

Great service. Great product.
Jason C from NV wrote on July 20, 2015:

Good price for an awesome product! I did some research trying to find the best flash suppressor. This one of the best.

Excellent quality
Tom from IN wrote on July 20, 2015:

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.

shipped fast

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.

Robert Paquette from TX wrote on July 20, 2015:

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!!!

Seems like a nice piece.

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.

Excellent Flash Suppressor
Pat from PA wrote on July 20, 2015:

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.

best there is

Vortex flash eliminator
Stephan Martin from N/A wrote on July 20, 2015:

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.

Amazing
from N/A wrote on July 20, 2015:

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.

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.
