Re: AAC Illusion 9 indexing on sig MPX?

Looks like even IF it can index somehow, you would have to remove the handguard every time you wanted to clean it. I understand that is simple on this weapon. But, it also means that if you are using direct thread and the suppressor unscrew a tiny bit you will have metal on metal contact damaging t...

Re: OSS Suppressors at Shot Show

All the marketing, all the fantastic claims.... Never heard of someone buying one from a dealer, never seen independent testing.

I'd be really really interested in independent testing!

Oh, sensitive sally, I'm sorry. I'll just order a 3-lug from my dealer and measure it out and look at a can in person.

I looked, found nothing except the difference between Gemtech's and Silencerco's major and minor pitch. No Oring. So Bender, can you are least say that the shoulder b...

Sealing off gas to threads, O-ring or contact shoulder?

Taking a look at Silencerco's three lug, that shoulder they have for the threads, is that for a contact engagment of a mating shoulder inside the can, or is that for an O-ring? https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0157/8968/products/Octane_3-lug_1024x1024.png?v=1391014552 Fat chance, but does anyone ha...

Re: Massive blowback in Colt AR .223 with ASE-UTRA SL5 .30 cal

Adjustable gas blocks have been my go to on the AR15, when shooting suppressed. It's still going to get dirty, but not as quickly, and the rifle will cycle smoother once you find the sweet spot. I laugh when people are all "i must have a quick attach can" and then a week later are "I need some way ...

Re: Where is SilencerCo?

Someone told me SiCo was running three shifts and 200 people. I don't think they've "gone" anywhere.

(no idea if those numbers are true, but they did just post that they sold their 5000th Omega just a couple months after release)

Re: New Sig SRD762Ti Silencer In Stock!

17-18oz is "extremely" light weight? 300TM at 14oz, Thunderbeast Ultras at 10-12oz don't think so.

I was actually really disappointed with the weight of the SIG 762 cans. The 556 however... Looks like the Ranger3 a lot of people actually wanted.

You need to go look at one before you toss claims like that out there. By "lightweight" he means paper thin wave washer. It won't hurt anything.
