The Ultradyne Athena allows a shooter to easily upgrade their rifle to the Dynamount Sighting System. Muzzle rise has been optimized as well, with gas vented at an angle then forward. This sends a lower percent of sound back towards the shooter. When combined with the Dynamount Flip-Up Front Sight users will benefit from the elimination of sight deflection association with handguard mounting.
There are three main types of muzzle devices for your weapon: flash suppressors/flash hiders, muzzle brakes, and compensators. AR-15’s are getting more and more popular every day, partially due to their low recoil and muzzle rise. But with a good muzzle brake, recoil can be reduced even more. With a good compensator, muzzle rise significantly drops, almost vanishing. And while muzzle flash cannot be completely eliminated, it can be significantly reduced with a quality flash hider. These muzzle devices are growing increasingly more popular due to how easy they are to put on, 5-10 minutes with the right tool, because of their incredible efficiency, and because they make a cool-looking gun.
About This Muzzle Device: Compensators - A compensator lowers the rise of your weapon upon the firing of your gun, allowing you to return to the target quicker. It has holes or slots, also known as ports cut only into the upper half of the device, which helps the escaping gases force the muzzle to stay down instead of moving upward. A high-quality compensator helps the shooter stay on target, or return to it faster.
Threading: 1/2x28 Is a common thread type for muzzle devices made for .22 caliber projectiles, commonly found on AR-15 barrels chambered in .223 Wylde, 5.56 NATO, and including .224 Valkyrie.
Finish: Manganese Phosphate - Manganese Phosphate finishes are used on barrels to protect against corrosion and wear. Manganese Phosphate finish is considered for its toughness and is used in multiple different applications such as aerospace, ordnance, and other firearms-related parts.
