Hesitations about buying? READ BELOW.
First off, let me start off by saying I didn't think this would really prove to be as good as reviews and videos showed. I was in disbelief. I purchased it a week ago to see if it was really as good as the videos seemed to show. (Keep in mind, I have a piston ar, and some people feel piston guns have a considerable amount of recoil over direct gas ARs). After installing the epsilon on my ar, and compared it to how the gun was previously, it was a noticeable change. There wasn't much recoil at all before, but now with the epsilon device on my rifle, there is none at all. I will never change it. There is very little recoil, muzzle rise, or flash. Only thing I did notice was more muzzle flash than my flash suppressor that I had on previously. the epsilon 556 does that job, the job of a brake, and a comp. I have used other comps, brakes and flash suppressers before and this one does all 3 well. As for rating each job individually, I would say it's ratings would be:
FLASH SUPRESSOR- 7/10
Flash supressor getting a 7 might now be good enough for some to buy this, however, it isn't a fireball coming out of the end or sides as with some others. All I can say is watch some videos of the brake, it is truly as good as it seems to be.
With how good of a job it does with the other 2 (brake/comp) it was well worth the money. You get the excellent brake/comp with added benefit of an above avg flash suppressor. If I had any other rifles, they would all be getting new epsilon muzzle devices within the next week. I was that impressed with it. whether or not you have a high end ar or not, get this muzzle device over any other and you will not regret it. Your low end will shoot as good as any high end.
This is my honest opinion and I would buy it again in a heartbeat. Any hesitation you have about getting this or buying from Tactical Link, worry no more. Watch a few videos of it shooting and you'll be thoroughly impressed. I didn't think my gun could shoot any better. I was wrong. VG6 Precision should be proud of their product.
As for Tactical link, they shipped fast without issues, and it arrived undamaged and as described. It was also priced lower, after shipping than any other online shop. I will surely be buying again from Tactical Link in the future. As for another brake, I'm sure I will not ever want another. This one does it all. Thank you Tactical Link, and thank you VG6 Precision. Keep up the good work!
