Effective flash suppression, reduced muzzle rise, an integrated wire cutter feature, and a slick, no frills design come together in the 1815. Machined from incredibly durable 4130 bar stock steel, the effective flash hider provides a noticeable improvement on the traditional A2 flash hider in both flash suppression and muzzle rise compensation, without the annoying ring that is so prevalent with open-prong designs. A slick nitride finish protects it from corrosion to give you a long lasting and durable option for your rifle.

The effective design of the 1815 draws inspiration from the muzzle device found on the original Armalite AR 18/180 series rifles, modernized and tweaked for superior performance. The integrated wire cutter feature includes dual notches at the 12 and 6 o'clock position designed to line up and hold wires. The abbreviated prongs even prevent the annoying tuning fork ring that is so common with open ended muzzle devices. Simple, clean, and effective, the 1815 is an excellent option for your next AR-15 build.

Forward Controls Design firmly believes in the elegance of simplicity. Not content to produce purely aesthetic components, they put function before form to create parts and accessories that actually improve the handling and function of your firearms.

Very nice, modern take on the A2 birdcage

This muzzle device, like everything else from FCD, was machined very well and is pretty much perfect. Reminds me of the standard A2 flash hider but updated with some new features. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but its supposed to hide the flash and reduce muzzle rise better than an A2 so hopefully it performs as good as it looks.
