Re: Comparison between SIG SRD762TI-QD and Silencerco Omega

I own both also and at this point I regret getting the Omega. It just sits on a MPW I rarely use. The modularity is the only plus I see. It nice to be able to go from a QD to a threaded can but the difference between blowback, tone, and db ratings is night and day. The Sig is a hell of a can. Kevin ...

Re: Can't get my 300 AR to cycle

People mix gas systems and buffer systems all the time. If it wasn't kosher to mix the two then what length buffer tube is supposed to go on a mid length gas system gun? I've never seen a mid length buffer tube or buffer. I get that. I am asking if it was part of a kit and was recommended to you by...

Most likely will say, there is no need to take it apart so don't worry about it.

Bringing this one back from the dead. Anyone know the secret to disassembling the 51t MAAD mount? Looking to make one out of titanium or at least the center piece.

Re: 100% Reliability running M42000 on SBR Question

The main problem you get when suppressing an AR is gas to the face. This is caused by too much gas in the system that will vent in any way possible. A lot of that will blow back through the charging handle. An adjustable gas block allows you to turn down the gas level just to the point of making the...
