L1A1 Muzzebrak raises a lot of dust

Didn't realize how much; I guess the M16A2 and the Rhodesian muzzle breaks make sense now

I think that is an L1A1, so an M16A2 type device probably wouldn't be much better given the dusty environment.

I do a lot of shooting in the dust. A2 flash hiders work pretty damned well. FAL/L1A1 devices do not.

I have heard the PNG style F1 is better, because itís closed on the bottom. It would be cool to see a comparison. I live in the desert, and my bare muzzle will kick up some dust if you shoot prone.
