Why on earth do MSR type guns not come like this?

    I think that depends on the state you live in. My grand father got ticketed on his own property having a loaded firearm on the tractor.

    Did the Sheriff lose the next election? Where I grew up he would have.

    If your shooting prone over dry dirt the A2 flash hider will reduce the amount of dust you kick up.

    If you don't like having your ears blow out while hunting, and I sure don't, then take it one step further and get a krink brake. These things are absolutely wonderful.

    A flash hider is not a muzzle brake at all. two different things. A flash hider doesn't increase the sound, if anything it helps muffle it. The idea is to help conceal your position. Reducing muzzle jump is also a minor concern. Another reason is that it protects the muzzle. I like them and glad I don't have to buy them extra.
    Also illegal to shoot from any vehicle in this state. That is really hard on the ears. Made that mistake once. I have a Muzzle brake on a rifle and a ported barrel on a pistol. I don't notice enough difference to care. I like the ported pistol barrel.

    Same here. No loaded guns unless a pistol with a Permit. Only disabled hunters can shoot from a stationary vehicle and they are strict about it. You have to get out, load your gun and get off the road to shoot. Then unload before you can get back in. You used to have put any gun in an enclosed case besides. Those laws do not apply to natives on reservation land.

    Less recoil/ muzzle jump can mean spotting hits on critters. Very cool when varmint hunting

    It's a Bulgarian style muzzle device, usually seen on
    short AKs. It reduces muzzle flash & also increases the gas available to operate the action despite the shorter barrel.

    yes, approved by the ATF. It’s original purpose was as a gas booster for a krinkov pistol

    Th
    thats cool. I see those “solvent trap” kits all over gun broker that could be setup just like that. I’ve often thought just using a little expansion chamber and the end cap could really take the crack out of a rifle without being in the way. I have a suppressor. And it can sure make things heavy and long.
