J-Comp Type 89 muzzle device
During this weekends familiarization fire we used a new muzzle device from Strike Industries. The muzzle device is based off the type 89 Japanese assault rifle. I was a little skeptical at first. ....
My experience with muzzle devices- specifically muzzle brakes, has been one of enhanced performance but at the detriment of those people on the firing line to my left and right. I found the obnoxious muzzle break characteristics were not present in the muzzle device. The over-pressure and concussion were comparable to the previous flash suppressor I had on the rifle, it really wasn't an issue at all. I also found the pre-drilled pin hole for pinning the muzzle device to the barrel was a very nice touch.
This muzzle device provided exceptional recoil mitigation. After reviewing the video I was also pleasantly surprised with the flash suppression it provided as well. For those who are looking for a muzzle device that is going add to overall weapon stability while provided effective flash suppression, and fall in a very affordable price point then the J-Comp Type 89 is a perfect match.
I really liked the price for this device. When you have 2 or 3 AR platforms to outfit with an effective compensator, it gets really expensive fast. The J-Comp Type 89 device is effective and you can outfit 3 or 4 AR rifles for about the same price as you would pay trying to outfit one rifle with other name brand muzzle devices which provide very similar performance characteristics.
