    Assuming 5.56 m&p then I don't see why not most if not all 223/5,56 have the same threads 1/2x28 or so and this do . Not sure what UNEF R/H means but if it is 1/2x28 you should be fine . You could always call and ask . But ar flash hiders for 223 are all the same in thread 9 not so much


    Well assuming you have a normal gun not a complianted model with no threading . But I digress..

    Neat, as long as you're the one behind the trigger. God forbid you're next to one of those on the line ... you'll be doubling up on the earpro and cleaning your eyepro every relay.

    Seriously, does a full-size 5.56 carbine/rifle even need one of those?

    Sure, reduces the recoil from 5.56 to .223 for those who can't handle the big stuff!

    It's showing 1/2x28 threads so it will fit on a threaded 5.56/223 barrel with standard suppressor threads

    Looks like a simple screw on. Not a big deal for a 5.56
    The gas piston system works to reduce recoil also

    The whole idea of the AR is 'standardized parts'. 1/2x28 is certainly standard.

    Zero Recoil? I can't say I ever thought much about recoil on my ARs. Probably a necessity for competition now that they're here.

    It doesn't look like I can simply thread it or a silencer on. A friend said that I'd probably need a gunsmith to do a mod so that it can accept those attachments. BTW, mine is 5.56. I don't remember the M16 having this much kick so it was a surprise that I had this much recoil on the AR.

    That is odd. Is yours a state compliant version some of thous had no threading or welding on muzzle brake .. It might just to red locktight on or if used carbon build up. That is odd. I know some aks need welding to get the muzzle nut off but I always assume at max a dremel is all that is needed.

    I have not run a ar in a long time though. I know some ar are lighter then others I remember shooting a 556 sig and that was a soft soft gun ( bear in mind I had never shoot a ar before that to..) also you can get recoil reduction stocks/grips .

    Mid size and up Ar's 16 inch barrels and longer for the most part have flash suppressors that screw on and off.
    The 14.5 on the other hand have ones that can not be removed.
    There are some that were pinned removing them takes a little more work.
    There are always exception depending on when the weapon was made.
