When selecting a caliber for one of our muzzle devices, the correct choice is based on your cartridge's actual bullet diameter. For example; if you have a .300 Win Mag, you would select a 7.62/.308 muzzle device. This is because the bullet for that cartridge is a .308" diameter. For a more detailed explanation and examples, check out our Caliber Fit Guide  

At 16", the EFAB has a marginal advantage in both flash suppression and recoil reduction compared to the AFAB.  When measuring barrels at 14.5" and below, the EFAB has a substantial advantage, and maintains that performance down to about 10". Therefore, we recommend the EFAB for most applications utilizing SBRs, AR pistols, and bullpups. However, the EFAB can absolutely still be used on a 16"+ barrels if you want the most performance possible between the two.

    EFAB Excellence

    Posted by Alexander on 22nd Apr 2024

    The quality and design of this thing is superior to anything else I have seen to a ridiculous degree. I am a CNC and manual machinist by trade and I cannot believe they can sell this thing for such a low price! The amount of machine time involved in all those little shapes is staggering. These guys must be putting a lot of money into excellent machines, tooling and machinists to make these with any kind of efficiency. Even then I can’t believe they make hardy anything selling these. I have not used it yet but I have every confidence I will find all their claims true when I do.

    EFAB HYBRID 5.56 X95

    Posted by Robert on 25th Jan 2024

    Re: IWI X95 EFAB upgrade Application. EFAB HYBRID is Faaaaar better than the A2 birdcage from the mfg... The EFAB stopped squirrely muzzle movement. It was an expensive yet effective upgrade. Along with "Shooting Site x95 spring" ? The two upgrades made the X95 a very comfortable, flatter, and a lower mechanical BCG recoil based platform. Highly recommended...

    While these are marketed as hybrid devices, they are by far my favorite recoil reducing brakes. They are loud, but there is very little concussive report from these devices. Easy to shoot all afternoon, even with big magnums.

    Best brake that actually hides flash

    Posted by PS on 12th Oct 2022

    I now own two EFAB's and one AFAB. The EFAB works amazing on my shorter 10.5" and 14.5" barrels. Brakes well, acts as a comp, and provides almost zero flash. My AFAB is on a 18" build and works great as well, but these EFAB's work better for shorter builds. You can't find a better hybrid device period, the machining and promised performance of these check all the boxes.

    I am buying a second one

    Posted by Joe Hilfiker on 30th Dec 2021

    This works. Very good flash hider and a brake. It is louder than just a flash hider, but no concussion. Bottom line, am buying a second one for my other rifle.

    Functional Flair

    Posted by Clean Calhoun on 13th Aug 2021

    Pricey, but worth it. There are probably better device options for a specific desired function (flash suppression only, concussion only, compensation only), but I don't think you'll find anything better at doing all 3 very well. Works as described.

    Installed the EFAB on my 10.5 Mk18. Works very well compared to the original A2. Reduction of shooter blast, recoil, & muzzle rise was very (very) good! Flash suppression is as good as A2 in cloudy overcast daylight. Occasionally catch a whiff of gas when firing but not much. Very happy with the EFAB!

    Flat-Shooting Compensator

    Posted by Maxwell Bradford on 24th Nov 2020

    Flash is extremely minimal. Compensation on muzzle climb is amazing. Had it pinned and welded onto my 14.5” DDM4V5s and it’s sitting pretty at 16.1” 1,000rnds in and my friends are blown away by the overall reduction in recoil compared to the A2 Birdcage I was running. “It shoots like a C02 air gun” was said by multiple people running 62gr M855 Definitely worth it if you’re using a 14.5” barrel. I did my research before hand, paid a good gunsmith who did it right and timed it perfectly. Bought their Accu Washers like they said and it was worth it. The porting is also super clean and well done. Never thought a $200 muzzle device could be something I rant and rave over but this thing is absolutely top-tier. 10/10
