Flash suppressor on a Mini-14?
I notice that Ruger offers a "Tactical" Mini-15. The main thing that I notice is that it is equipped with a muzzle break/flash suppressor. Is this realy a necessity on any gun that fires the .223/5.56? I don't notice any really bad recoil. But, I do notice the ear-splitting muzzle blast. Of course, now that my hearing is bad, I always use ear muffs and/or plugs when I shoot. I recommend that to every shooter-every time!
And, I think the flash would only be a problem in the darkness. And, I don't know how much of that I will do. So, I think I will use my Mini-no flash suppressor-just as it came from the factory.
Any differing opinions?
