New SureFire Warcomp

A sneak peak of the new SureFire Warcomp was posted by SoldierSystems recently. It’s a pretty interesting design in that it’s both a flash hider and a compensator. They’ll be available in both 5.56 and 7.62 versions and will function with the SureFire SOCOM Suppressor. Check it out in action below. Visit for more info.


Billed as the world’s most shoot able flash hider, the new Warcomp-556 and Warcomp-762 from SureFire offers hybrid capability including barrel compensation.

– Ported to allow rifle to track straight back, stay on target and allow faster follow up shots
– Offers 99% flash reduction
– Made from USA SS bar stock
– IonBond DLC coated
– Single point cut threads

    Betcha it will cost as much as a decent barrel.

    • G0rdon_Fr33man

      Tacticool knows no price tag.

      The brakes are $130ish, about the same as any other respectable QD mount. Can’t see why this would be priced any differently.

      • ClintTorres

        …which is about the price of a decent CMV barrel.

    • For the suppressor mount version, yes. They will be around the $125-150

      But if there is enough interest they will release a non-mount version for around $50-60.

    A couple shots at night would have been nice. I wonder how obnoxious it is without a can?

    • Guest

      Was thinking the same thing on both accounts.

    • NDS

      I have a couple of the SureFire brakes in 5.56 and 7.62 and the muzzle flash and blast are incredible, although not so much to the shooter. Standing next to one at about 4 o’clock is a real experience. I’m actually waiting to see a bit more on these new WarComps as I have a new AR10 that needs a suppressor mount and was just about to buy another brake before hearing about this.

  • Esh325

    There are so many muzzle devices on the market, it’s difficult to see any one that stands out.

    • Agree. Would like to see a comparison of devices that do both comp and flash suppression. With night shots as mentioned above. I want the comp, but go with flash hiding as a rule.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Remind me how many comps work with Surefire silencers? Because that is the appeal here.

      They won’t be taking 10% of the comp market, but they’ll tske 100% of the Surefire silencer compatible comp market.

  • John

    Does it actually reduce 99% of flash? If so, I’m surprised SOCOM hasn’t adopted it, or some other version that works. If your enemy can’t see you firing, I would think you have a major advantage.

    • Grindstone50k

      99% of the flash *for the shooter* is different from 99% of the flash overall. That was, of course, the original intent of the invention of the flash-hider.

  • AR15.COM Fan Boy

    O. M. G. I am so getting this. It will look great with my SOE gear!

  • Anonymoose

    Any word on pricing? Still waiting on that XC1 light too.

  • tipsey

    Wow, looks like to took months of R&D to come up with that design…

  • OCG

    Isn’t this basically a three prong flash hider from the 50’s?

    • guest

      No no no, can’t you clearly see this is a completely new design at a completely new price? BTW buy that comp – get a free 10% off gift card for your next purchase – like a bar stock milled dust cover for an amazing 499$.

      • JumpIf NotZero

        No one thinks you are funny.

    • The modern pronged flash hiders (BE Meyers/SF and AAC) use the same basic principle as the old 3 prong flash hider in the same way that a modern car uses the same principles of a car from the 50s. But these are designed with a greater understanding on the physics of the gas as it exits the muzzle.

      OTOH this also incorporates a compensator to lower muzzle rise and recoil.

  • Bill

    I understand the need to be able to rapidly and securely mount and dismount a suppressor, or maybe I don’t, I and the people I work with can’t afford them. I certainly understand the need for flash suppression. But this compensator on a fighting rifle bit, especially a 5.56, which I didn’t realize had any recoil, I’m not so sure about. Any advantage is probably psychological, and any physical advantage is probably so small that a few sessions in the gym working the upper body and arms could probably equal, with other benefits.

    For competition, maybe they are worthwhile when your scores are based on hundredths of a second, but I’m tired of dripping blood from my ears and nose after doing live fire team drills in confined spaces, like the all-steel (yeah, ricochets) corridors in a scrapped towboat or abandoned prison wing because someone’s running cool-guy gear on his rifle.

    But that’s just me.

  • Joshua

    With the Marines looking into comps this has interesting timing.
