Hybrid Muzzle Device 2 (HMD2) (SLIMMED) Stainless (Various Calibers)
Introducing the MDWS Hybrid Muzzle Device 2 (HMD2) (SLIMMED). This is a new product that is not only a compensator but also a flash suppressor. The 18-port compensator chamber has a unique science built into it; it significantly reduces muzzle climb and can be clocked and locked for right or left hand shooters, while the A1 Birdcage style flash suppression chamber provides a substantial reduction in muzzle flash. Same as the original HMD but slimmed down to .80" to reduce weight.
The hidden science behind the HMD is the transition between the two chambers. The compensation chamber's ports provide a mean of escape for the initial exhaust of air in front of the bullet allowing the bullet to travel into the second chamber with less interference. Meanwhile, the compensation chamber is comprised of 18 total ports, 4 of which are dead-center 12 O'Clock for center-line reference. As you can see in the photos, flash is considerably reduced compared to no muzzle device. Please see the below YouTube Video of live fire comparisons that quantify the comparison photograph.
This model is Brushed Stainless Steel. This model includes the minor fluting on the 6 O'Clock side of the device.
You must use a traditional crush washer behind this model - since they are slimmed, the original set-screw configuration will not work. (Sorry, crush washer not included).
The original HMD weighs in at an insignificant 4.3 ounces and is 3.245" Long by .870" Wide. This slim version is turned down to .80" reducing the weight to 3.2oz! Truly invaluable performance for little added weight and length.
Stay on Target with the HMD.
Be advised this device would classify as a flash suppressor, or "flash hider", although it provides two functions. Know your local, state and/or federal laws before installing.
