I was reading this thread from last month -
http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=101328

and it was AR-specific, so I thought I'd ask about flash hiders for FAL rifles.
It doesn't look like the Vortex is available for FALs?

Here's an STG-58 flash hider for $6 - http://gunthings.com/falfront.htm

Here's an L1A1 flash hider for $10 - http://www.northridgeinc.com/I_fnfal_accessories.htm

of course, this is what I _really_ want ;) : http://guns.connect.fi/rs/L1supp.html

If you are looking at flash suppression only then I think that the Belgian is the best. I think that the Browning Bird Cage is the coolest looking one.

Call up Smith Enterprises. I know there is a .308 Vortex, and I am pretty sure there is one for standard FAL threads. If not stocked standard, I am also pretty sure they will make up something like this for little or no extra.

I need to get my barrel threaded and trade the brake out for one of these also, so post the results if you try that.

The Belgian Combo device is my personal favorite.

Thanks for the replies everyone! I did some searching over of falfiles.com and got some good info too.

I have the old school STG58/Maj.Stolli suppressor just cause it looks cool (yeah yeah I know, not the best reason...) and as a flash suppressor it doesn't work very well unless you properly index it during installation; which can be pretty tricky I found.

The cool thing is you can also use it to cut through barbed wire and launch rifle grenades! Whoo Hoo!

You know...if you're into that kind of thing.
