The MICOR Industries Flash Suppressors are certainly unique. They are matched to a specific twist rate (1:9″, 1:8″, or 1:7″) which they claim increases velocity and enhances accuracy. I cannot speak to any of these claims since I haven’t tested this flash suppressor and they are not the most interesting thing about this particular flash suppressor to me. The most interesting thing about these flash suppressors to me is that they offer a titanium version.
The Ti version is machined from 6AL4V Ti which is a very strong alloy. It is sold by MICOR for its resistance to extreme conditions (which is true), but I am more interested in the fact that it is also very light weight. Flash suppressors are usually made from steel which makes them relatively heavy. Titanium would allow the flash suppressor to be both light weight and very strong. It might be just the thing for your lightweight AR-15 build.
Anything made from Ti gets automatic cool points in my book.
