I'll try to get to the range tomorrow and report ASAP.  It will go on a .223, a 6.8, and a .308.



A can on the 6.8 for killing hogs: what could be better?

Mounting one of these on your AR, that's what...
http://swfa.com/Laser-Genetics-ND-3-Laser-Designator-P41090.aspx
I have one and a couple of my hunting buddies also have ND-3s on their rifles, and trust me, it makes for a brutally efficient combination on nocturnal hogs!!!  So far, they seem oblivious to the fact they are being lit up, and the view through your scope of the laser-illuminated hog is better than 3rd Gen night vision!  The range of the laser is incredible, and it comes with a variety of mounts in the kit, including a mount that allows you to attach it to your binoculars via the tripod mount socket.

This thing is awesome!  Trust me!

Really?  Not even for non-game species like predators and feral hogs outside of deer season?

Here we can't hunt at night.

That laser device looks like a great match for an AR and the price is very affordable. Thunbs Up

Can't hunt at night (except raccoons with a .22) and can't hunt with any device that projects a "beam" (light/laser).  A laser rangefinder is OK.  Can't hunt over "bait", BUT CAN hunt over a food plot (WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE??????????????????)

However, we probably do have one of the highest poacher populations in the world, which tends to fuel excessive regulation...

Be interesting to see how your accuracy is affected, and how quiet it is in the different calibers. I've heard that the new cans improve accuracy.

Sako, a CAN is referring to a suppressor or silencer. Trying to make the hush-a-boom!

A can won't effect accuracy other than changing point of impact downward from 2 to 4 moa depending on barrel profile.
 
If it's a 308 can it'll be least effective withthe smallest caliber.
 
They do make a great muzzle break as a side effect oftheir operation.
 
Be sure to run it wet or the 1st shot will be louder than you might think.

This is a can on the end of my 338 RUM M700 topped with a 16x SS scope. 

 

 

It is homemade on an ATF form 1, cost $40 plus the $200 tax.  Have not tested it on the 338 rum but it works well on another rifle in 308.  While it is not quiet, it lowers the noise level enough to shoot it safely without ear plugs.  The first round pop (FRP) is hardly discernable.

 

Kickboxer,  You are luckier than you know. At least in AL you can own and use them, even if it is not on game animals.  WA bans use.  I am only able to legally use them when traveling to one of the 36 other states that allow unlicensed civilians to own them.

It is a real drag.  I was going to retire to Idaho after the Navy, but I got married, bought a house and got a job in the shipyard where I could sit on my disabled butt while watching others work.

 

Every few years a bill is submitted to the WA gov to make an exception for registered silencers in the law that bans use.  Every year I write to my reps encouraging them to support the bill.  Every year I get ignored or get a few replies saying that silencers are illegal at the federal level, not legal to use at the federal level, or some other lie/lame excuse.  It is tough.  But I continue to make a silencer each year and will continue to until my entire collection is suppressed except for the revolvers and black powder guns.

 

Here is one revolver that can be suppressed effectively.  The 1895 nagant has a cylinder that moves forward when the hammer is cocked and the brass is long enough to enter the back of the barrel to seal the gap.  Only 700-1000 fps with 95 grain bullet though, depending on the load.

Could you explain running it wet? And what is going on?

I have been thinking about getting a can, either a gemtec (sp?) or a surefire mainly for the quick mount set up. But none of the one's I have heard are much quieter than unsuppressed.

What are some of the better suppressors?

And RC what are your thoughts on yours?

OPS INC. THE ONLY WAY FOR RIFLE OR AR.

 
TRIDENT SWR FOR CARBINE OR PISTOL
 
OPS INC. IS NEVER BEATEN AS FAR AS DUARABILITY AND SOUND SUPRESSION THEY ARE TOP OF THE LINE.
 
THEY MAKE MOSTLY GOV'T AND SOMETIMES YOU GET ONE WITH GOV'T SPEC ON IT.

The only way for me is to make them myself.  If I was buying them, then I could not afford to shoot them.  :)  $60 for material plus the $200 tax is a bargain.
