Re: Buyer beware of Advanced Armament/an ongoing experience

It's really too bad. The prices on some of their rifle cans are excellent; $550 for an 556SD or $615 for an M42K. With the M42K being such a well regarded classic performer it would be an excellent buy if all the company itself wasn't sucking so bad.

Re: solvent trap

I feel like this would not make a very effective suppressor, and the life span will be ridiculously short. These oil filters were never meant to handle the pressures generated by the discharge of a firearm, they can probably handle .22, but when you can get a .22lr can for $200 (+tax) that will las...

Re: anyone know if Alan Paulson is still planning on vol 3?

I'd love to see a Vol 3. I think breaking down the progression of modern silencers would be invaluable regardless of how obsolete it may become due to the internet. The GWOT has brought a lot to the history of military silencers and I'd personally love to see it cataloged.

Re: Surefire Mad Science Div: Something Wicked This Way Com

I don't understand why anyone would want a Surefire can when the 7.62 Saker becomes available for purchase. My assumption is that its a .30 can thats not overbuilt for .308 or even some of the magnum calibers to keep unnecessary weight and size down. If you're on AR15.COM youve seen the "looking fo...

Re: The first no blowback can?

If this has already been answered sorry... Could the reason the unit is supposed to self tighten be because the way the "turbine" configuration is in respect to the thread pattern? If the gas twists the unit in an opposite direction to the threads then wouldn't it keep it on? That's what I understa...

Re: AAC at SHOT

Lighter means more material removal is needed, which means more machining time. Time is money, more machining is more wear and tear on the machine and tooling.

Db reduction of SF FA556-212?

I've seen the published db levels of the SF can, but they don't advertise a reduction level like most suppressor companies. For reference I'm trying to find the db reduction numbers for straight comparison.

Re: Eliminating "ring" from Blackout mount

I don't personally have a blackout. However, I was putting a couple Ks of ammo through a rifle with one on it, and as soon as I noticed the ring it bugged the living daylights out of me.

I always though "it can't be that bad", but the constant ringing messes with my head.

I like the FH end. However, the SHOT videos said the spikes around the edge were decorative. Get rid of them unless there's a real reason. It will look cleaner and more functional.

Re: SILENCERCO'S SAKER 5.56mm suppressor (PICS & INFO)!!!!!!

So, I'm reading that right now they're wanting to put out adapters for 51T, "Y", Silencercos "Trifecta", and a thread on. Should I assume 18T, A2 (including BC 2.0 and the KAC mounts), KAC MAMS, and Surefire will be coming out? Seems like a pretty slick setup, basically the multi-mount of Rifle cans.

Re: To the asshats putting spikes on your suppressors...

I get the hate for spikes on a can. As for the 3-prong flash hiders on the end of cans, I'm not sure why you guys are hating on that. SilencerCo isn't the only one doing this. Knights announced their new line of cans a few months ago which feature a 3-prong FH on them. http://www.knightarmco.com/blo...
