PWS FSC556 Flash Suppressing Compensator

The Flash Suppressing Compensator (FSC) Series of muzzle devices from PWS provides superior compensation characteristics combined with enough flash suppression to keep the flash out of your optics and line of sight. Designed for both competitive and tactical use, the FSC Series allows for superior muzzle stabilization and aids the shooter in faster follow-up shots and accuracy.

The unique port design of the FSC Series yields muzzle control that meets or exceeds the performance of the best muzzle brakes on the market without the teeth-rattling overpressure indicative of other brakes and compensators.

All of the FSC Series muzzle devices have been classified as a non-flash suppressing device by the BATFE, thus removing any restriction from assault weapon ban states or provinces. A copy of this document is available upon request or on our website at

A PWS signature product, the FSC 556 ships standard on the FNH® SCAR® 16S. Coupling flash suppression with muzzle control, the FSC 556 is an ideal compensator for putting a high volume of rounds on target.

    Ordered this PWS Comp recently and the PIG place carrier a year ago. Both great products at good prices and both were delivered in a very timely manner.

    Great comp/suppressor for my build and works as expected. No issues with order or shipping. Showed up a few days after I ordered it. No complaints and I will order from this company again is need be.

    Great Experience Again

    I have found some items on SKD that I have not been able to find on other sites. The site has some good comedy and is refreshing when compared to some other dry and boring sites. Always like shopping on SKD.

    Great comp

    Posted by MF on 30th Jul 2014

    I live in a not-so-free state and given that the ATF signed a letter (available at the PWS site) stating that this is indeed a comp and not a flash hider makes it cool for me to use. This is a great multi-use device - recoil and flip are noticeably decreased and the flash is hidden more than you'd expect. Buy it - you won't be disappointed.

    One of the best out there- yes there is more side blast than others-But given how the PWS FSC556 stabilizes the 14.5" barrel is all I care about. As far as muzzle flash in the day time I have observed none while shooting the AR with 556 62gr green tip. I have not had the opportunity to shoot it at dark. Or low light. It was purchased for muzzle control- And It Works!

    After looking around for a while on the net I found SKD to have the best price on the flash suppressor I wanted. They shipped it fast and I had it within a few days. Great experience.
