AAC Universal 3-prong flash hider installation and removal tool

Universal tool for three prong flash hider installation and removal - Perfect for AAC Breakout, Blackout, Surefire SOCOM 3-Prong, Dead Air, Rugged, Silencerco

Charlie's loves US made tools that just work.  We are not your Ace Hardware Store for gunsmithing tools, but occasionally we find a tool that works, and that is what you find on our Website.

AAC made this socket back in 2016-ish for their Blackout and Breakout flash hiders.  Turns out, it works with almost any 3-prong flash hider.  Tested on Surefire, Dead Air, Rugged, FN and Slicencerco.  I will not work with Sons of Liberty NOX flash hiders.  You can insert a 3/8" socket driver, or the exterior has flats for a 3/4" wrench.

This AAC Blackout Flash Hider Installation Tool is an excellent solution for armorers, gunsmiths and/or gun enthusiasts to quickly and easily install or remove many 3-prong flash hiders without marring its finish or damaging the teeth of a quick detach silencer interface when applying the required torque for the job.  We recommend some painter's masking tape or electrician's black rubber tape, just to be sure.
