The Commando Retro XM177 Long Flash Compensator - Moderator: A Tribute to Craftsmanship

In the realm of firearms, where history intertwines with the present, the Commando Retro XM177 Long Flash Compensator - Moderator stands tall. This isn't an accessory—it's an ode, a song of steel and sweat, sung to the historical CAR-15 design. The echoes of the Vietnam War resonate in its shape, a testament to Colt's quest to quell the muzzle's roar.

Remember the "Duck Bill"? The three-pronged hider that promised so much but delivered so little? That was but a stepping stone on a journey towards success—the XM-177 Moderator. This, the tool that made the US Army nod in approval, this is the design that the Commando Retro XM177 Long Flash Compensator - Moderator draws its lifeblood from.

Brought to you by the stalwarts at KAK Industries, the retro aesthetic of the '60s meets the cutting-edge engineering of today in a dance of design and functionality. This moderator isn't a mere piece of equipment. It's a time-traveling artifact, merging history with the future, blending effortlessly with the latest in firearm tech.

Craftsmanship? No, this is artistry, the kind that comes from precision machining. The kind that takes a block of bar steel and carves it into a masterpiece. With the heat-treated resilience of a warrior and a corrosion-resistant phosphate coating, this accessory is built to weather the storm of time.

At the heart of the design, a threaded 1/2-28 bore accommodates both 5.56mm and 9mm barrels. Five flash hiding ports and a sealed bottom reminiscent of an A2 flash hider bestow upon the Commando Retro XM177 Long Flash Compensator - Moderator a versatility unparalleled.

Size matters, and this moderator understands. When pinned and welded, it extends a 10.5" barrel over 16", deftly sidestepping the label of a short-barreled rifle. With a slender diameter of 1.0" and an overall length of 6.15", it's a fitting companion for a myriad of builds.

And it doesn't stop there. Whether your heart yearns for an XM177 or a Colt Model 610, or perhaps a Colt Model 619/620, this moderator is the perfect companion. It melds seamlessly with the Colt Model 630 or USAF GAU-5A, Colt Model 639, and the Colt Model 649 or USAF GAU-5A/A.

Ease of installation? Of course! A pre-drilled .125" hole, a standard .750" wrench, and you're good to go. KAK Industries, with its commitment to affordable, no-nonsense AR15 solutions, ensures a hassle-free experience, as smooth as a well-oiled bolt.

While its ancestor, the original XM-177, excelled in sound suppression, this incarnation walks a different path. The ethos of an extended flash hider shines through, without the concerns of sound suppression. A history lesson, a practical approach, and modern compliance, all rolled into one.

So, whether your heart is set on a Commando clone build, or something more...exotic, this Commando Retro XM177 Long Flash Compensator - Moderator is your key to unlocking your creativity. It's not just a tool, it's a companion in your journey of creation. Let the sparks fly with KAK Industries.
