Damn cool find, def going to get a can in one year. Damn laws.
Thats a really cool vid. thanks for the share.
That's advertising in action. I've got a couple things to point out, however:
1) Blasting a SAW belt through a can is nothing special. What they AREN'T showing you in that clip is whether or not the can was damaged internally after that, or if the accuracy was affected due to a baffle strike. Not as big a problem on an open-bolt gun like the SAW. You couldn't do that shit on an AR with that can, or you'd destroy it. The lead-core bullets get too hot, and the lead starts melting out, which really fucks up the bullet flight, and then the insides of the can.
2) The SF mount is a two-handed job. They're in the process of redesigning it, because that's one of the things that's costing them the SCAR contract.
3) They're big and heavy. SF's idea, and I've heard this voiced by one of their reps, is that if it's not quiet enough, they'll just add more baffles, which increases the length and weight.
4) That POI shift is actually the maximum I'd accept at 100 yards from a can. You can't tell at what range they were shooting.
5) Their square pistol can fucking sucks. They made it square just to be different and it DOES NOT add anything beneficial to the can. It is not quiet.
6) Surefire was initially the can with which Armalite was going for their SASS contract. One day, during testing, the can was dropped, which damaged the can. They called AAC up in a panic, and went with the new AAC S3R for their SASS entry. The SF .308 can, at least at the time, did not survive a drop test.
7) Whoopedeedoo. I could make this video in my backyard with my friends. A bunch of airsofters could make this video.
Aside from that, they're good cans. Other than the mount and not quite being as quiet or as light, the SF 5.56 can is the only competition for the AAC SCAR-SD.
fuck i want one
just finished seeing this on silencertests.com
I can't own one in michigan
now why in the world would they add music to a video in which you are trying to pay attention to sound?
To cover up how loud their cans are.
Video makes me want to get a suppressor now.
How much do they effect accuracy? Say if you put one on a bolt-action .308 rifle.
One day I'll have a USP with a can, I'de like one for my 5.56 uppers too
no, he just makes giant threads about working at their shot show booth for fun.
Ha. Yeah, I just like their stuff. Through SHOT, my best friend actually has a job there now, and is on their SOT. I wouldn't say anything about their shit if it were any other company, though. If it were Gemtech he worked for, I wouldn't say a peep.
I would own a Surefire can or a KAC can if you gave it to me. I wouldn't spend that much money to own something that's inferior, though.
