Re: CYCLING SUBSONIC AMMO! 5.56 7.62X39 308

They could be using pistol gas systems instead of carbine gased system. Makes a big difference. Agreed, we only use pistol length gas tubes on any length Blackout barrel if we want subs to work reliably with suppressors. And always direct impingement , never piston with Blackouts. I shoot subsonic....

Re: Beretta 92A1 and AAC Illusion

I recently ordered an AAC illusion suppressor and I was curious if anybody has used this with a Beretta 92A1. Beretta has begun selling their own threaded barrels for the 92 series handguns. I got one of them as I believe they are longer than the standard barrel that came with my pistol. My hope is...

Re: Waiting on my first can, but already thinking about my second.

My first is a Saker ASR 762. Any I buy will be used on my 6.5 Creedmoor and 6mm Creedmoor, but will see some time on my 6.5 Grendel and my .223/5.56 carbine. The 6.xx's are more precision setups, but I like the idea of QD. The 6.xx are what I shoot most. I'll use the 458 SOCOM I almost have ready t...

Re: CYCLING SUBSONIC AMMO! 5.56 7.62X39 308

Hi all. I have been shooting for years but I recently started collecting tax stamps. I'm looking for subsonic ammo other than 9mm, 45 and 300 BLK. Something for my ARs, AK and other guns- suppressed or not. I saw on MidwayUSA that Atomic Ammunition has subsonic in calibers like match grade 223, 308...

If the manufacturer does not supply that thread adapter I would suggest the guy at TROS (The Riddle of Steel) at https://trosusa.com
I have bought odd adapters from him and they are strong and concentric.
