Thread: Current state of 7.62 Silencers (Cans, suppressors, whatever)

    any compatibility with the KeyMo mounts?


    No, the TBAC is either a direct thread, or mounts using a TBAC brake.

    TBAC says to keep their cans under 800 degrees F, IIRC.

    You can see the videos on YouTube where Ray Sanchez tests out the cans to see what that means practically. Basically, it gives you a mag dump, and change.

    Primarily, TBAC makes *precision* cans, which are definitely not intended for heavy semi-auto use. If you were looking for a heavier duty 5.56 offering, check out the TBAC TD 5.56, which was designed for the SURG program trials - the price is right, also.

    Whatís the word on the Trash Panda? Iím digging the muzzle device and that each can ships with 2 (one for 5.56 and one for .30 cal bbls).

    Based upon the unresponsiveness of their customer service department, Iíd take a hard pass.

    Iím still waiting to hear back from them...from when I reached out weeks ago.

    Do you have one? If so, how many rounds through it?

    Multiple thousands of .38/.357/.357Max, thousands of 9mm full auto, thousands of 5.56 in semi & full auto, same with .300blk, maybe 500 rounds of 7.62x51 from a bolt gun. It is THE Swiss Army knife of cans. A mystic x plus a good lightweight user serviceable rimfire can, covers a ridiculous number of bases.

    Interesting.

    So they are advertising the Mystic X with an "upgrade option" to go to the Infiniti X, which appears to be basically the same can but with Ti internals instead of the SS internals of the Mystic.

    I'll admit to being somewhat confused, again, by the mounting options. Looks like you replace the rear cap with the mounting option of your choosing for your given application? I see a Booster Assembly, a 3-lug mounts, fixed barrel adapters, low profile fixed barrel adapters, the Freedom Mag QA Mount (5.56 or 7.62 muzzle brake, unsure what can this is compatible with), the LS2 556 Flash Hider (in 5.56 only, again not sure what can this mates up to), the LS1 Muzzle Brake (which appears to be a 7.62 only brake for the Sovereign suppressor)...

    The latter two leading me to go looking for the Sovereign which appears to be a rifle-only can while the Mystic and Inifiniti are rifle and pistol caliber...? And it appears that the Sovereign takes the LS1 brake mount for 7.62 and the LS2 flash hider mount for 5.56 but doesn't offer a 5.56 brake or 7.62 hider mount...?

    Iím not the tactical type, and I donít own a plate carrier.... but I have emptied a mag at a pack of hogs running across a field a few dozen times. So you may be looking for something different than me. But with that being said, I absolutely LOVE my TBAC Ultra 5. Itís only 5Ē long, weight is in the single digit ounces, and it makes all my rifles close enough to hearing safe to make me comfortable. And yes, TBAC reputation for repeatability does apply. They are often considered just in the precision community, and that reputation is well deserved. But I sure do like mine on the 12Ē 6.8 SBR too.

    I don't own one, but it would be hard for me to buy anything else at this point than Q's offerings mostly due to weight. Obviously not the first choice for mag dumps or machine guns. The only thing I don't like about the mount is that I don't want a brake on short barrels.

    The Dead Air Sandman-K does seem to tick a lot of the boxes. I wish the Sandman-S was lighter.
    Big +1 to @LittleLebowski statement about not going wrong with Dead Air. Very impressed with their stuff.

    The Sandman-K is great. The Sandman-S can be hefty so if you're not doing FA fire (or mag dumps for the gram) I recommend the DA "Nomad-30."

    @Hansohn Brothers I wouldn't touch anything YHM with a 10-foot pole... especially if I have to pay for it.
