Re: Launched my SilencerCo Omega300 - Repair?

Once upon a time the manufacturer could replace the tube with one having the same serial number. Don't think that is allowed any more. That being said, SIlencerco can probably just replace the stack. They are very, very good. See what happens. It must be legal and Silencerco does understand current ...

Backpressure more: Specwar or Saker?

Guys,

Which 308 suppressor generates more backpressure ... the Silencerco Specwar or the Silencerco Saker?

May have to change from a Specwar to a Saker on a 308 piston rifle.

Thanks!

Mike

Re: Saker 7.62 ASR or Specwar 7.62?

I also have an original Saker and and a Specwar. Have used the Saker on a 12.5" 6.8. Works well. The Specwar has been mounted on 16" and 12.5" 308s. Is a great can for LOUD rifles. Really takes the nastiness out of the 12.5" 308 SBR which is very exciting without it!

Re: Flash Hider or Muzzle Brake Under Can?

I suspect that an MB also adds a bit of back pressure which can accept mechanism performance in a semi automatic rifle whose gas system is already a bit generous ... such as the Desert Tech MDR. Extraction and ejection are more vigorous with the MB even when not suppressed. Is showing marks on the b...

Re: Beware- swaging 300 BLK in 5.56 upper with H-110 - NOT recommended!

Re: considering 9mm AR PDW build...

You might consider SBRing a SIG MPX ... are VERY quiet with an Octane 9 and Fiocchi 158 grainers. Piston should be more reliable. Have had no difficulty with a Colt 9mm smg upper but must admit that the Glock mags ought to be better. The SIG mags are definitely better but are costly. With supersonic...

Re: WV passes Constitutional Carry Bill, effective May 24 2016

So far ... basically a non-event ... as it should be!

We've had "shall issue" carry permits for some years and legal open carry as well. Legislature passed and enforced a local law preemption as well. Permits have reciprocity with 34 states.

Good place ;-)

An MPX with an Octane 9 using 158 gr Fiocchi is as close to 'Hollywood quiet' as a 9mm gets I think.


This setup should be most interesting indeed!

Re: Help Pick Next SBR

I would suggest a 12.5" 6.8 AR based SBR. Is the most power you can put into a supersonic suppressed SBR and still be usable in a confined space. Good for hunting up to 250 yards of so with Hornady 120 gr SSTs. A 12.5" 308 based SBR is spectacular for sure, but even with a very good 308 suppressor l...

Re: Anyone suppress an M60?

Will have to look at the E3 bbl to see if it is adjustable. Brake on that bbl would make it easiest to mount an adapter for the can.

Did send a note to M60joe to see if he has any comments.

I wouldn't expect greatly effective suppression from an open bolt auto. Must admit am curious.

Re: Sig MCX vs. MPX

Depends on the service you expect to see from the weapon. If for CQB defense, the 300 BLK is more potent than the 9mm. The 220 gr subsonic load tends to upset on impact and flat spin through the target ... at least that's what I've seen on deer. In a short barrel (1:7 twist 8.5") stabilization is ad...

Re: SBR Build for Omega Questions

I have SBRs in both 5.56 and 300 BLK. 5.56 is cheaper to shoot. 300 BLK is much quieter. Velocity of M193 ball from my 11.5" 1:7 bbl was 2647 fps. Comfortable to shoot with a Saker. Pretty darned loud without a can. I went to 8.5" on the 300 BLK because it was to be suppressed. Works fine w a 9mm can.
