So got my rifle back from Steyr, everything should be fixed. They have great customer service.

My Form 1 on a 30 cal can came back this month so I finished my Suppressor.

I have a reflex adapter on order to reduce the Overall length of the rifle with the can but at the moment, I have a standard SD tactical mount attached. With the check nut there’s not tons of thread space left but it seems enough to hold the can effectively.

The Suppressor is mostly titanium minus end caps and the blast baffles.

I have installed the factory Suppressor gas plug, and should be re-sighting in the rifle this weekend

The Suppressor cover is the HAD by rifles only, I’m going to run this in action rifle matches, so I was hoping to avoid melting the safe tables with a hot can.

Here’s some photos










Here’s the left over thread the Can is holding on to

Looks good, man. Hope it works out well.

I'm planning to do a reflex suppressor when I get my AUG.

Looks good, any reason you didn't clip the baffles?

I’ll likely clip them before my first range visit, as it’s still under construction

You’ll end up with a goofy soot mark on your shoulder if you wear a light color shirt. But it’s all good

Is it normal for titanium cans to have this much flash on the first round pop? Every round after is a tiny flash/spark

Took the rifle out to quickly test the Suppressor, unfortunately went to an indoor range early in the morning due to my schedule so I could not get a feel for its Full suppression. However the Suppressor functioned perfectly in reliability, blowback was noticeable during rapid fire but still manageable. The sound was still pretty loud, only a small noticeable decrease of sound but being indoors doesn’t help, I’ll try it outside to see if it’s worth still keeping the Suppressor on it. On single shoot mode, it was better for obvious reasons, and easy to switch settings.

Muzzle flash is pretty normal with a can, hence designers incorporating flash hiders in end caps. I wonder how much noise you're getting is from the piston port in the confined space? This is the reason that RatWorx came up with their suppressor design to trap the port gasses.

The first round flash is the oxygen in the can being burned up and why following round are much reduced. See the 2nd half of this video...

The sparks on following rounds are titanium burning as the can is eroding with every shot.

Being inside you have the sound coming back from the walls/barriers.

Seeing the flash from the gas port is neat.

Definitely try it outdoors

Has anyone tried to shoot factory subsonic 223, I just want to hear how it sounds in single shoot mode but want to make sure it’s safe in a 20in 1:9 twist barrel

You just wanted to show off your 14" barrel.
It's crazy how you can see the flash coming out of the gas cylinder, in the daytime!

Nice! I like how the gas can easily be switched off to run the AUG as a straight pull. It's so quiet when doing so. No ear pro needed.

I wonder why they didn't use heavier projectiles? 55gr can't have much energy.

I think it’s about keeping the bullet stable without getting a baffle strike , they make 110 grain 223 subsonic but it’s $50 a box of 20 and made for short barrels
