Full Auto Rated Suppressor Not!!

Recommended Posts

Were the rounds even remotely still on target after the side blew out or when the whole thing let go?

I would wager yes, after it melted, then numerous baffle strikes once it cleared, it was back on target, only the shooter would know that, he was looking at the ground the last 300+ rounds..

Videos like this make me cry. If they wanted rid of the suppressor, they could have just given it to some poor soul like me.

wow!  That's some destruction.  That SAW was just getting warmed up.

 

I think it was just getting warmed up to blow up.  That barrel was getting quite red at the end.  Same for the part of the gas cylinder (or gas regulator, @173rdABN would know which one for sure) we could see. 

The SAW was actually one of my favorite weapons from my time in, but putting a suppressor on it makes zero sense to me.  Ditto with putting that many rounds through it continuously.  Wasn't meant for either at all.

      Got this in e-mail today. Seems like ATF is trying hard, but swamped and outdated.  The real culprit is the FBI.

      Being a transplant from a restricted state, I only recently have used suppressors. On trying out my new Obsidian45 and Kraken9, I was let down a bit by the Speer 147gr I shot thru the Kraken.
      It didn't seem any quieter than 124gr Nato though is suppose to be subsonic. I used my hearing protection (outdoor) for both.  On looking around, I've seen some comments the Speer is louder. Would like some recommendations of readily available 147 grain that y'all may have found to work best. 
      I've seen reviews that Hush 165 is the gold standard, and 158gr Fiocchi is good.  They are not easy to find, so hopefully something less exotic does the trick.

      Last year I sold the .300 bulk upper I had on it to fund something else. It’s been sitting ever since and I’m ready to do something with it. I loved the novelty of shooting sub rounds through a suppressor on it but I was just that...novelty. 
       
      Are there any calibers it thee that could take advantage of the shorter barrel and suppressor better than the .300 blk?  I do still have some interest in running full power loads through it but would want a 9” barrel. I had a 10.5 last a time and always found myself wishing it was shorter. 
       
      If you had a complete SBR’d lower what would you do with it?
