    7.5" AR (5.56) & Muzzle Devices

    I have a SilencerCo Specwar 762 that's rated down to 7.5". Mine is a pig at 24oz, but several manufacturers have no barrel restrictions on some cans now and are significantly lighter than my last gen Specwar. I've used the included Specwar muzzle brake and it's great, but any super short AR unsuppressed is going to be so loud it's disorienting. I won't ever shoot it unsuppressed again.

    300 caliber suppressor

    Barrel length and, to a much lesser extent, gas tube length are the only things going to make a real difference. Sound at the muzzle will be about the same for all of the configurations, but different uppers and buffer weights can have more or less pop at the ejection port. It won't be a huge difference in most cases.

    40 mags not fitting the gauge

    Check the Classifieds. SV old style mag with Grams guts is worth about $120-$150.

    40 mags not fitting the gauge

    I wouldn't touch the feed lips on a $100+ no-longer-available, highly desirable mag tube when the solution is readily available for $30.
  5. Titanium is roughly half the density of steel. So that means at most you'll save less than a 1/10th of an ounce. Most scales at match may not even be precise enough to detect the difference.
  6. There was a steel challenge match in Europe years ago that used circular plates with old car tires around them to catch the splatter. Really neat idea and kept everything contained.
  7. 2011's are awesome, but I learned I would have turned into a much better shooter if I had shot a $500 gun and spent that other $3000 on ammo and practice.

    Suppressing a 1911

    None at the moment, but if I remember I'll try to take a quick one when I get home.

    Suppressing a 1911

    Some manufacturers will sell a 9mm endcap for the large bore cans if you're chasing a few extra decibels. But even with an overbored can, there's simply less gas to contain from a 9mm charge vs the powder charge in a .45ACP.

    Suppressing a 1911

    Subsonic 9mm is always going to be quieter.

    Suppressing a 1911

    SilencerCo Octane 9HD Hammer fired guns tend to be quieter than the striker fired. The consensus is that the hammer keeps the action closed for a few milliseconds longer, allowing more gas to move through the suppressor instead of out of the ejection port.

    Suppressing a 1911

    I shot a match with my Freedom Gunworks 2011 suppressed. I shot Open minor but it was the most fun I've had shooting a match in a long time. The 1911/2011 is the quietest 9mm suppressor host I've shot.
  13. And just for shiggles, if you're ever shooting in a hurricane you'll need to hold about an inch and a half into the wind at 20 yards.
