    KBA or Surefire barrel shoulder ring?

    I tried searching around, but haven't seen anyone comparing the two. Is there a recommendation for one over the other? Both appear to accomplish the same thing, but the Surefire ring is $6, includes shims and Rocksett, while the KBA ring is $30+ and includes nothing but the ring.

    The $8 Surefire one that PMM sells worked out perfect for me. You can't beat the price.
    I wanted one in 5.56 for a Tavor and was pissed that the one KBA sold for $29 was the only thing available. It's not worth the price for what it is.
    Regardless, both work fine for their intended purposes. Did I mention that the KBA was over-priced?

    The one from PMM is noticeably thicker where it needs to be compared to the KBA. I swapped both of my KBA''s out for them and am happy I did.

    Looks like it's a Surefire shoulder ring from PMM for me as well.

    Does anyone know if you still need to use the Surefire shoulder ring if you are using a SCAR specific muzzle device such as the Dead Air flash hider?

    Only if you need to time the muzzle device.
