How to cycle subs in AR-10

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.

How to cycle subs in AR-10

Post by ApacheWolf »

New to the suppression world... Just finally received my Griffith Dul-Lok after waiting 11mo. I wanted to put it on my AR-10 with 1/10" twist 20" inch barrel.

What buffer weights and ammo have been consistently able to make a semi cycle?

Thank you all ahead of time for your help.

I'll chime in since no one has.

The short answer is, you don't. Supers only when we're talking .308. If you want subs, then small-frame AR and 300 Blackout is the answer. AR-10s are finicky and even full power suppressed can be a bit touchy at times. Subsonic, it just isn't going to happen. On top of that, they often don't stabilize if you do feed them one at a time.
