I know these are not marketed as a precision can but does anyone have any experience with these, accuracy wise? My dealer has these in stock at a good price and I'm looking at them as a cheaper direct thread for my boy's hunting AR. It's a 16" RRA HBAR that will shoot 1/2" @ 100 with Vmax and I don't want to ruin that accuracy. It will be used for plinking, coyote hunting, and hopefully a prairie dog hunt some day so accuracy is my main priority (as well as being short/lite/inexpensive).

And just out of curiosity...
I don't plan to pin and weld it, but I understand that part of it's purpose is to create a one stamp SBR. If perm-attached, how do you ever change gas blocks? How do you clean the rifle w/o getting patches stuck inside? I'm not a fan of bore-snakes.

You just nailed two big arguments against pin and welding a can - not to mention changing mists rails

Resident Spartan 3 fanboy here. This can is excellent. Don't pin and weld. I put mine on with a couple drops of Resbond 907TS (threadlocker) and torqued it to ~35 ft-lbs. Hasn't budged since.

I'm not planning to pin and weld, although I can see the point of it since SBRs are not allowed in my state. For a straight up SHTF rifle I'm sure its fine. I'm mainly just looking for accuracy opinions. I would guess that most of the guys chasing accuracy with high dollar rigs would be using TBAC cans or something but I was hoping that someone has had good accuracy experience with this can. Several recent threads have mentioned that the SDN6 is notoriously inaccurate, so I don't want something like that. From what I've read it seems like direct thread is best for pure accuracy but I'm not sure if that applies in the $450 price range of cans.

Since SBRs are not allowed in your state, that's the one exception I make to my usual anti-pin+weld stance. That's the one time it really makes sense to do it.

A quality QD mount should not show degradation in accuracy

I agree, but a quality QD can runs a lot more than $450. This would be a one rifle dedicated can (but not pinned) so no need for QD. I just don't want to buy it and find out it degrades the accuracy and then everyone says "well what did you expect for a cheap can" lol.

Boy, those $300 YHM 556QD can days are over.  I snagged up 3 back then.
