    Damn Call of Duty 4 reminded me how badly I want a suppressor for my M4. It has a Gemtech bilock already on so Im assuming Im limited to only the Gemtech G5? Retail is $875.00 so if you know a reputable retailer that could save me some dough let me know. Thanks

    lol. Was that in reference to the fake M203? If so I bought it with that on there, and have not yet decided whether to take it off or leave it.

    Unless you have the urge to pop off some flares... probably not doing you much good. If it's even more fake than a 37mm flare launcher, I'd say it's right on up there with deadweight.

    You will be hard pressed to find a dealer selling a new one below retail, there isn't much markup on cans. You may find one that a dealer used as a demo can for cheap but they are not real common. http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=118&t=472704 I found this while browsing last night, if it is actually new that is a smoking deal and I'm surprised it's not gone yet. I don't know anything about that individual, but since the can is on a Form 3 that means it is at a dealer and he does have a little positive feedback in the feedback forum.

    Honestly take this with a grain of salt, but you could get a much better can for 900 bucks.

    Yeah I know what you're saying. I just don't know if I want to go through the hassel of changing the bi-lock. It was pinned and laser welded by gemtech according to my buddy who I bought it from. It's also a factory assembled Colt M4 upper so Im afraid to mess with it. I am also a noob though.

    it's possible to get them off with causing more damage.

    http://www.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=7&f=118&t=472704 <- thats a NIB from an individual, already on a form 3, for $625.
    Talon Arms wants $875, but I bet if you email them for their "best price" you will get a much better quote. gemtech has a MAP policy (i think), so advertised prices will probably all be the same.
