STG58 history (all features may not cross over to our version of this muzzle device)

The STG58, which is essentially the Austrian variant of the FAL (Fusil Automatique Léger), was equipped with a distinctive flash hider. The STG58 flash hider is a muzzle device designed primarily to reduce the visible flash signature produced when firing the rifle.

The STG58 flash hider features a series of prongs or tines around its circumference, which serve to disrupt and disperse the burning gases exiting the barrel upon firing. By breaking up these gases and redirecting them away from the shooter's line of sight, the flash hider helps to minimize the intensity of the muzzle flash, making it less conspicuous, especially in low-light conditions.

Additionally, the design of the STG58 flash hider may also contribute to mitigating recoil to some extent, although its primary function is to reduce muzzle flash rather than control recoil.

Overall, the STG58 flash hider is a characteristic feature of the Austrian variant of the FAL and serves to improve the rifle's performance by reducing its signature during firing, particularly in situations where minimizing muzzle flash is desirable, such as in nighttime operations or when firing from a concealed position.
