How do I install my BattleComp 1.0?

Any competent gunsmith can install a BattleComp, and we always recommend a gunsmith install your BattleComp. The BCE Logo should be at 6 o’clock (the bottom of the compensator -- solid to reduce dust signature in the prone).
 

Wrench sizes:  All 5.56 models are 3/4" and the BABC is 21 mm.

 

What if my old muzzle device is soldered and pinned?

We recommend contacting a competent gunsmith to remove your old muzzle device and install the BattleComp to meet any and all legal requirements.  With some care, the old device can be cut in half lengthwise without harming the barrel threads.  The BC1.5 is pre-drilled to accept a pin (a piece of drill bit works REALLY well), but the pin is not included.  

 

How do I clean my BattleComp?

Non-toxic degreasers are encouraged, but just about any household degreaser will work. A short soak and scrub with a nylon brush is sufficient (please don’t use Acetone with a plastic brush).  The slots are pretty generous, and particles will blow out more than build up.  We sent 10,000+ rounds through a BattleComp before it annoyed us so much we had to clean it.

 

How often should I clean my BattleComp?

We recommend you clean the BattleComp after every firing session. While carbon does not build up quickly in the BattleComp, keeping your weapon and its BattleComp clean enhances both as to effectiveness.  Ultrasonic cleaners work very well.

 

I have a .223 Rem chamber.  Is the BattleComp okay to use with a .223?
 
Absolutely.  No problems with the .223 Wylde chamber, either.  As end users, we often encourage folks to use true 5.56 NATO chambers, since .223 Rem and 5.56 ammo works well with the 5.56 NATO's more generous chamber.  A .223 Rem chamber can be a little tight at the neck for 5.56 NATO ammunition.  A barrel stamped "5.56 NATO" does NOT mean your chamber is a true 5.56 NATO chamber. 
 
We use Ned Christensen's awesome 5.56 NATO reamer to we ensure we have true 5.56 NATO chambers, since we use both .223 Rem and 5.56 NATO ammo in our own guns.  Check out Ned's reamer at:  http://www.m-guns.com/tools.php

 

What are the available thread pitches?

The BattleComp 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 come with standard 1/2"x28 RH pitch.

The BattleComp BABC comes with 5/8x24 RH and will accommodate calibers ranging from .300 Blackout, 6.5 Grendel, 6.8 SPC, .270 Winchester, 7.62x39, 7.62x51 NATO -- all the way up to .300 Winchester Magnum.  5/8x24 RH is a very prevalent pitch for these calibers, but it is important you VERIFY your thread pitch before ordering a BABC from us. 

The most common thread for 6.5 Grendel is 9/16 x 24 RH.
