SureFire SOCOM Flash Hider 5.56 1/2-28 3 Prong

The advanced SureFire SF3P-556-1/2-28 three-prong flash hider, which fits M4/M16 weapons and variants with 1/2x28 muzzle threads, features a patent-pending design that greatly reduces muzzle flash—typically greater than 99%—when compared with a plain muzzle. Boasting robust tines built to withstand the rigors of combat, the SF3P-556-1/2-28 also serves as a rock-solid mounting adapter for SureFire SOCOM Series 5.56 mm Fast-Attach® suppressors, the SOCOM556-RC model having placed first in the most extensive and rigorous suppressor testing ever conducted by US Special Operations Command. 

Precision machined from US mill-certified heat-treated stainless steel bar stock—and including high-precision single-point cut threads for optimum thread interface—the SF3P-556-1/2-28 flash hider is given a black Ionbond DLC coating to provide maximum protection under harsh environmental conditions and to facilitate cleaning, even after extreme use. 

When used in conjunction with a SureFire SOCOM Series suppressor, the patent-pending design of the SF3P-556-1/2-28 provides multiple bearing surfaces to ensure superior suppressor alignment and to prevent the audible ringing of tines inside the suppressor. A rear labyrinth seal minimizes potential carbon buildup in the indexing system and facilitates suppressor removal after extended firing. 

SureFire flash hiders are individually inspected for concentricity and alignment and are covered by SureFire’s No-Hassle Guarantee. 

FITS: M4, M16 and variants 

MOUNTS: All SureFire SOCOM Series 5.56mm/.223 caliber sound suppressors 

NOTE: SureFire SOCOM Series Fast-Attach sound suppressors, flash hider/suppressor adapters, and muzzle brake/suppressor adapters are not compatible with previous SureFire Fast-Attach sound suppressors, muzzle brakes, or flash hiders.

    Best Surefire muzzle device

    Posted by Listen up on 7th May 2022

    Ok I have the Surefire brake, warcomp and now 3 prong flash hider and I wish this is what I bought first. The warcomp and brake are great unsuppressed but once you throw your silencer on that’s where you notice the 3 prong stands out it’s actually guieter and the locking collar doesn’t get stuck as much I was wondering why but now I feel dumb not catching that the other two throw gas out where the collar would sit but with the flash hider there’s no gas expulsion out the top or sides like the other two do. The difference is noticeable too like going from a gas gun to a bolt gun an easy 4-6 decibels. Look Jay from Pewscience he backs it up with a meter. WORTH EVERY PENNY PERIOD.

    Hard to find

    These flash hiders have been very hard to find. I almost gave up on this but Bauer Precision came through for me. The muzzle device is everything I could have wanted and mates perfectly with my DD MK18 upper receiver.
