To understand the need for a flash hider, especially a Birdcage Flash Hider, one needs to understand who this simple, but quite effective addition to an AR-15 is for – the shooter.  While you may think its sole purpose is to hide the flash during low-light firing and lessening the chances of detection you’d be only partly correct.

  • Caliber: 5.56 NATO/ .223
  • Material: Steel
  • Finish: Mil-Spec Heavy Phosphate
  • Weight: 1.9 Ounces
  • Length: 1.75”
  • Diameter: 0.86”
  • Thread: 1/2"-28

When firing a long barrel rifle most of the powder is burned before the bullet leaves the tip of the barrel, which means very little pyrotechnic flash on each shot. However, with the advent of the AR-15 and a much shorter barrel, the powder doesn’t have the chance to be depleted resulting in a powerful explosion of burning powder on each shot which not only betrays the position, but effectively blinds the shooter preventing proper target acquisition.

Interestingly enough, there is a common misconception between muzzle breaks and flash hiders.  Although a muzzle break can to some degree disperse the explosion of powder at the end of the barrel of a rifle, its primary goal is to reduce the massive recoil when firing large caliber ammunition. If you need a quality flash hider (not a muzzle break) for your AR-15 we recommend the Radical .223 Caliber A1 Birdcage Flash hider.

Designed to fit most 5.56 and .223 caliber barrels with ½ - 28 threads per inch Radical Firearms puts advanced technology first, allowing for that finishing touch you’ll need for night or low-light shooting. Another simple but effective bit of technology is the birdcage design. Some flash hiders are a three pronged manufacture which aren’t as user friendly, often getting snagged on your gear, you clothing and brush and vegetation. Thus the smooth round slotted design, which effectively disperses most of the flash, but allows a much more user friendly experience.

Made in America the Radical Firearms .223 A1 Birdcage Flash Hider is that last accessory piece you’ll need to round out the esthetics appeal and functionality of your firearm.
