The SOCOM Gear PWS Style Flash Hider is the same flash hider that is equipped with the PWS Diablo Front Assembly. This unique flash hider features a 14mm Counter Clockwise thread so it can be fitted to most airsoft barrels.

For: SOCOM Gear PWS Style Flash Hider (BLK)
Not the EXACT same flash hider as with the Diablo, you will notice (I didn't notice, which is why I bought it) that there is a small protrusion at the back end whereas the Diablo flash hider is actually flush at the back end. This prevented me from doing what I originally planned, which was to add this to my Stubby Killer, because it looked awfully wierd with the extra length between the barrel end and the flash hider. I then discovered that this unit could be easily swapped out with the Noveske suppressor on my G4 Flaming Hog, the Daniel Defense RIS on the Hog is long enough (and the barrel is short enough) that the back end of the flash hider is not visible. So I now have a Flaming Hog that can double as a Diablo if I want it to, with about 2 minutes of work switching out flash hiders. It looks double-tough.
Construction-wise this unit is as solid as a rock, and it is everything you would expect from SOCOM Gear. I just think it would have been slightly better without the little extension on the rear, and I can't imagine what it would look like on the end of a full-length barrel.
Rugged looks and great finish
looks great as long as the rear end is hidden under a RIS
not quite exactly the same as the PWS Diablo unit, but still pretty cool
