AMTAC over the barrel suppressor

General silencer discussion. If you want to talk about a specific silenced rifle or pistol, it is best to do that in the rifle or pistol section for that brand.

AMTAC over the barrel suppressor

Pros-- Short, less potential baffle strikes (reported). Did I say short :D Less blowback to face. Reduced weight hanging off the end of the barrel.
Cons--Only works on rifles. Same, fixed threads with no room for an adapter.

I've shot them and love 'em. The OTB is rare but isn't groundbreaking. Still, AMTAC's products are top quality and have all the benefits you mentioned plus better balance since all the weight isn't hanging off the end of the barrel.

That said, some people don't like reflex suppressors and complain about it not being new tech. I don't care. Less blowback, less length, direct thread, I'm sold. Waiting on a Hornet for my personal SBR MPX and can't wait to swap my Octane 9 out for the shorter length under the hand guard. I'll post pics once it comes in.

My 300 can will be a hybrid reflex/integral.

If nfa branch ever signs and returns it to me. I am exactly 1 week short of a year today.

I'm not complaining. Reflex is great, just nothing new. My 450 bushmaster upper has a reflex/integral.
