what a "Linear Compensator" actually does. It all blows our the front anyway, does splitting up the jets do something?

Also I have seen some reference to "non-reciprocating" actions etc. They don't seem to have a buffer tube/spring assy. How do dat work?

look at the Armalite AR-18/AR-180 (original one)

no buffer tube/spring assembly and one of the finest most dependable AR type rifles ever made.

AR-15 / AR-180

Two totally separate designs, one is direct impingement gas system the other is a short stroke tappet like a fnfal. AR180 was designed to be cheaper & easier to produce

I used an AR-180 in combat competition (3 gun) for

6 years and never had it fail me in any way.

Then why in the world are we all dickin' around with AR15s?

the Armalite AR-180 wasn't as classy as the AR-15

and the AR was chosen for our troops. So automatically it became "the best" in a lot of folk's minds. A good friend who was in the 101st and doing a lot of LRPs told me when he went out he carried an AR-18 (the full auto version) because it always worked. He told me the Aussie camp was near them and he would take a case of beer over to the Aussies at night and trade it for an AR-18. He was the one that got me into using the AR-180.

also Schwarzenegger used one in the first Terminator

the other half made by a Jap firm that is well known for high dollar shotguns.

It diverts gas to the front

They help to hide the flash. Reduces some of the felt recoil without blasting everything beside the shooter. This is installed on my 9mm AR.

Same thing as the "flash can" thingys?

Sort of like the WWII Jungle Carbines and Bren guns? I almost ordered a PSA 9m carbine but have this lower laying around. Almost ordered a top and stock for it. I'm having fun procrastinating.

I can't buy one put together with all the parts I personally want. But I can put it together. Barrel length is a question too. I like the 6-8" but the 4" has a 2-3" Flash can or forward brake that is only about 1-2" shorter. It has me all confused as to what I'm after. It interests me as a fun plinker, shooting inexpensive ammo that does not blast my muffs off.
