I recently picked up a 10.5” 5.56 to use as a truck/critter gun and possibly for home duties. I live out in the sticks with no neighbors so it’s nice to have a small rifle ready to go for anything that may come up. Now to the question:

I currently have an AAC 7.62 SD on  .308 and am considering getting a QD flash hider for the 5.56 for double duty. From what I see I’m not sure the suppressor will have much perceived benefit on reducing the possible hearing damage. I’ll use ear pro outside of any bump in the night situations where I don’t have time to put on the muffs. 
 

Second part:  I don’t want to mess with an adjustable gas block. I currently have an F marked block installed with a larger gas port similar to the MK18. I like the fixed sight so I’m also wondering if the gas will be intolerable by suppressing an already over gassed rifle. 
 

My goal is to reduce any permanent hearing damage. If it’s way too much expense, added weight, and overall trouble trying to obtain a minimal result then I’ll hold off. I love the way this thing is balanced without a suppressor.

If it is already overgassed, I think you may have issues.  Being that it is a 30 cal can on a 5.56 it will have a bit less pressure, but probably not enough to not cause issues.  You will get a lot of blowback I would guess.  

I don't think you will hurt anything trying it though and see if it is tolerable.  Or get something like a flaming pig to push the blast forward more.

That’s interesting. Any experience with one?

Nope. It’s a rec from a buddy of mine who swears they’re the tits for a suppressed ar and the only reason for the existence of a forward assist port.

Worth a shot for the price. Thanks.

You will still need hearing protection with a 762 can, it will still be loud(er).

Agreed my rugged surge on my 10.5" 556 is still plenty loud.  I wouldn't want to fire it indoors unless I have to, but it is quieter than an unsurpressed 16" gun.

      This is for all the M107A owners or others with practical experience. From  a noise suppression standpoint, is it worth shelling out for the can on this system?

      Hi, is it ok to have two muzzle breaks or is that overkill and unnecessary or no extra recoil reduction?  Is the recoil reduction sufficient using only the muzzle break that comes attached to the Harvester as shown in the picture above? By the way, this would attach to my .300 WM.

      I'm thinking about selling my .22 cal suppressor. I very rarely use it, absolutely hate cleaning it and don't want my sons burdened by it if something happens to me.   
      Its an off brand. Small company was trying to get started and offered them at a very good price. But they failed and the dealer I got it from has since retired.
      Who's the best dealer in Memphis to move this for me?
