Re: AAC Illusion, new eccentric 9mm suppressor.

If a can that looks like a Maxim and is louder than a Tirant is AAC's idea of an innovative new product, my response is a resounding "meh."

Why make a steel Prodigy when you have the Element?

These are the things that are keeping potential hot sellers like the Ranger 3 from coming to market?

Probably not. They licensed the baffle design from SoundTech years ago; upgrading them would take a bunch of R&D work that would probably make the can more expensive, and the whole point of the Cobra (cort of) is to be a budget can.

Dumb. They cancel this so they can focus on an eccentric Evo 9 that no one will buy?

Re: Tikka 3+1, .308, having barrel threaded

1. Buy T3 (seriously, great rifles). 2. Chop to 16". 3. Apply suppressor of choice. 4. Enjoy. 16" will get you anything within reasonable hunting range and will still be compact with something like a Cyclone K. A T3 in .223 and SBR'ed to 12.5" is still on my Want List. With a 1:7 rebarrel it should ...

Re: solvent trap

I'm sure it would be fine. It's usually the baffles that get messed up not the tube. I don't think it would be very durable but since you would be the manufacturer, you could just replace the internals as they wear out. Make sure you file a form 1 prior to purchasing those parts. Best of luck You s...

Re: How much suppressor is needed to act as a quiet brake?

A brake mount will reduce recoil on its own but is not nearly as effective when it's inside the suppressor. In other words, don't commit to a brake-mounted can because you think it will reduce recoil better, it really won't. If weight is important to you the TBAC you linked is probably the best arou...

Free bore boost is about velocity. But energy can't be added by a silencer.

No different than flying with a hunting rifle. Declare them at the check-in, certify they are unloaded, lock the ca...

Re: X-rays of new AAC cans

Very nice. I have a bunch of silencers I'd like to xray but I work in a university hospital where it is a felony to bring a firearm. I don't know any off-site xray techs or docs well enough to ask them if I can bring a bunch of NFA gear to their office.

Re: Cyclone and 300BO subs

I doubt you will find it any quieter in 300Blk. The blackout does use a bit less powder, but the Cyclone has more than enough volume for the powder gas produced by either subsonic cartridge, so most of the noise is firing pin action and bullet flight noise anyway. A semi-auto 300Blk will obviously b...

Re: Lightweight 5.56

Does it have shoddy-looking cast baffles like their 9mm cans? :lol: Will it be a three-year wait til they hit stores like the MPX? :lol:

OP, if you really need lightweight, you need titanium. Just be aware that it has serious limitations on the 5.56 rifle platform.

Yes, that is what is pictured. It was the same with multiple brands of ammo as well. I have been away on business for the last couple of weeks, but I will be back this coming week and will try again at the range.

The baffles pictured on their website are definitely not K baffles. Are you sure you know what K baffles are?

Welp, the suppressor in question is a Huntertown Arms Kestrel 308. There's your problem right there. FYI the speed of sound also varies with air temperature and humidity, so 1050fps can actually be supersonic or transonic and give you some sonic crack depending on your environment. But yeah, I've n...

Re: WTF has gone wrong with my can?

I did remove both endcaps and checked them, no bullet rubs and the threads looked clean. With my low-mount optic I can't completely pull the bolt without removing the eyepiece of the scope but the alignment seems as good as I can determine.
