Got a replacement muzzle device for my 11.5".

PWS Triad flash suppressor.








I'm gonna do a video tonight of how to time it using shims.

It's similar to the non-mount Blackout. Curious how this will perform, but it's supposed to do a great job at flash suppression. They also claim it will have a good reduction of muzzle climb. I'll find out next week.

Reedo, or anyone else for the matter. I plan on taking off my battle comp from my old rifle to throw on my new one. Am I able to reuse the washers? If not, I suppose if I call them up, they can hook it up with new ones right?

If you used the shims that come with it, you can reuse them. If you installed it with a crush washer, those are one time use and should not be used again.

One other point. If you are not going to suppress it, go with the crush washer. It's is much, much easier to get the BC timed correctly.

How are you liking the noveske lower? I'm thinking about basing my next build off the noveske lower or a vltor or maybe a black rain lower.

Adam- I love it. It's a high quality lower and the magwell flare is wide enough for fast loading. Everything you'd expect from Noveske.

I'm leaning towards picking one up, I figured it would be a top lower...did you run it in any of your classes? Joebob has them in stock for about $200 right now with free shipping, thinking about jumping on it.

On a 3-day Friday to Sunday course, I ran it from Friday night through Saturday night. Total of about 700rds or so.

Big 'ol bump.

Can you post the pics of your current DPMS MK12 build?

From what I've seen, that rifle is currently in the lead for my favorite.
