    Couple of reasons I can think of.

    1. Knights gets military contracts for stuff like that.
    Wouldn't do to sell it to civilians for $29 bucks and sell it to the GooberMint for $750, now would it!

    2. Build it and they will come.

    The KAC Triple Tap is made of Inconel 718. It's a very expensive material, and very difficult to machine.

    Thanks, now I at least have SOME clarity. How important is it really to make said flash hider out of such expensive metal?

    How important is it to have a $400 suppressor mount muzzle brake if you don't have a suppressor?

    To the Tackycool guy that has to have all the best toys on his AR-15?

    $400 important I guess!

    Like I said before:
    Build it, and they will Come!
