Anyone use one of these? I like to keep my nose on the charging handle but when suppressed I cant do it unless I'm wearing Pyramex goggles.

I rarely if ever use the forward assist so I dont think I would miss it and in theory I would think it would vent off the excess gas easily as that would be the path of least resistance.

Nobody???? Maybe I'll have to get one and try for myself.

I have one on my 300BLK SBR with Sig SRD 762 QD can. It may help a little, but the can is going to push gas stuff back into the chamber regardless. Now, I tend to run my AR wetter too, so that probably doesnt help. I have gone 300rounds suppressed and it was still running, but dirty .
My Piston SBR from PWS was dirty, but not nearly as much soot at same amount of rounds.
I do think 300BLK runs dirtier due to powder type, from what I have read.
Any slow mo video will show gas coming into chamber with can is going to happen regardless of the vent at the back.
Just my opinion. There are many other people here with vastly more knowledge.
Now, my Sig 516 with can, with 62 grain green tips without a vent and using same can is by far cleaner than the other 2 DI guns. Not sure if its piston design or barrel length, 16 vise 9 and 8.5, or what.. Its just runs cleaner.

Wouldn't the ejection port be the path of least resistance--even
with that device installed?

You would think but I still get a lot of gas through the charging handle. Enough that you cannot put your nose on the charging handle without goggle type eye pro.

I mentioned that SuperlativeArms gas block above. That eliminated all the over gassing I had going on. Think I’m on the 3rd setting. All the remaining gas is bled-off towards the muzzle of the weapon.

I can run any ammo, even lower pressure reloads loaded with frangible bullets (awesome for close in steel-targets).

Looked this thread up again because I’ve been reading and noticed a few of the units are getting away from suppressor use. Something to that, or am I just noticing things?

Ah so...I'm a fan of the nose-charging handle technique too.

How about removing the forward assist assy, and seeing if that
improves the situation? Just as a sort of proof of concept, for the
device.

If no FA doesn't help, the device won't do any better, I'd figure.

I'm about ready to put in the paper work and money for a suppressor, and wanted to see if opinions had changed on the AAC SDN6. I want to primarily use it on an AR pistol with both 5.56 and .300BLK so I would like to have quick detachment. Are there any other options I should look at. Gemtech makes a .300BLK version that looked nice but it was for direct attachment.

I have 3 AAC cans, including a SDN-6. I have no complaints with my AAC products, but I don't put a lot of rounds through my suppressors. IMO, if you intend on a high round count, you need to be looking at the high-end cans.

I have a YHM in 5.56 and a Surefire in 7.62 that I switch between 3 or 4 rifles. Like them both, the Surefire is not the quietest can out there (or the cheapest) but it's good for a lot of rounds and the aim point corrections are consistent every time. My only experience with Gemtech is in .22 cal but they are well put together.

Thanks! Not going to be putting a ton of rounds through it. The negative reviews I had read had to primary do with the mounting system wearing out.

Hasn't been an issue for me.

Still rocking the AAC 762SD on my 300BLK Franken-build. No issues...other than “operator error” and initial buffer & buffer spring selection.

I’ve had my Surefire glowing red, no issues.

Looking at getting a .30 SOCOM from BigDaddyUnlimited for $897 but ArmsUnlimited has the non-SOCOM .30 Surefire for $675 and its only 5.6” as opposed to 6.2. The one from ArmsUnlimited also comes with a free flashhider. Any opinions on SOCOM vs non-SOCOM? I also looked at the Micro30 from Rugged Suppressors, I like how short it is. It’ll be primarily used on my first .300blk AR build (8” barrel).

If you plan on doing a lot of shooting with the can on, especially if your training day involves a can which periodically approaches double duty as a light source...get the SOCOM model, or another higher-end full-auto rated model.

Whats the turnaround time you guys are seeing now, still six months to a year wait for approval?

Been kicking around the idea of getting a .22 can that I can move back and fourth between a 10/22 and a Mark IV.

Yes, but faster if you file as an individual (vice a trust). I have two items in NFA purgatory right now, a can and a SBR lower. Paperwork submitted in February.

I was looking at picking up this one. For $199 I don think you could go wrong.
