Awesome news about the DFW venue. I know you will have a lot of gear to schlepp, and a shorter drive helps.
Just curious - you running a Surefire can with that? And did PJ hook you up with one of the suppressor gas plugs?
I'm researching cans now. Due to weight and balance, I'd like to get something relatively short and light.
I have not been able to find one of the old Ratworx dedicated cans for love or money. I'm not a fan at all of buying used cans, but I'd make an exception for one of those.
It is set up to take my 7.62K can that I need to get out of jail. It will work on my Steyr but is mainly for my 6.8 LMT or LaRue Ranger rifle.
I had the suppressor gas plug when Giles Stock and I had the only two in the US. It is now in the gun I posted. I think the gun was traded in because the previous owner was trying to run it suppressed and did not know how to clean the gun....Which is a bad combo. The gun was a mess inside when I got it.
I worked with Surefire a long time ago to try to run an AUG suppressed. It was a total failure as the can totally over functions the gas system. Keep in mind, the AUG was a piston gun long before it was cool. They are a bit different. Using a proper suppressed gas plug and a small lightweight can could likely be a good combo. For me, having the gun simply able to take a can is nice, but the main thing I am looking to see how it works is the Surefire brake should make the thing shoot neutral and totally flat.
If shooting suppressed all the time is a big issue, I think we are way ahead of the game in development on the AR side of the house. With that said, it is something that is catching up with the AUG.
