    @Robert: Making your own flash hider or muzzle brakes can be a fun and rewarding project. However, it's important to ensure that any modifications you make to your firearm comply with local laws and regulations.

    As for the effectiveness of your homemade flash hider, it's difficult to say without more information about its design and specifications. Flash hiders are specifically designed to reduce muzzle flash by redirecting gases and reducing the visible signature. If your homemade device is designed with similar principles in mind, it may help reduce muzzle flash to some extent.

    Regarding the distressed look caused by your electroplating, it's purely a cosmetic aspect and doesn't affect the functionality of the flash hider. If you're happy with the distressed look, then it's a matter of personal preference. Just remember to prioritize safety and compliance when modifying firearms.

Wether it’s hunting, fishing or exploring the great outdoors I enjoy it all! I love to look for new opportunities to take my wife and kids on adventures.
