The flash reducer is ignited by the burning propellant. When the black powder and potassium nitrate or potassium sulphate mixture burns in combination with the propelling charge, the chemical reaction causesareduc-tion in muzzle flash of the weapon. The likelihood of blast overpressure from the muzzle is also reduced, There is some increase in smoke at the weapon muzzle when the M2 ( 1'2) is used.
