I'm working on a SBR build and i'm planing on using a 7.5" barrel. Now my question is would I have any problems running a suppressor on a barrel this short.

Thankyou

I didn't know you could still enjoy such trivialities in the great state of California.


You cant. Im stationed in CA but my home state is TX


Are you thinking you can still use it in Cali because it's not your HOR or just stating you will be using in while back home in TX? I'll assume you already know this but in case you do not. That applies to things like being able to keep your home state's DL & vote there but not for possession of firearms & a particular states laws whie living here or there for military service. TX may be your HOR while you're stationed in Cali for military service but you still can't use it there due to their silly laws.


I'm geting out in a few months and im moving back to texas so none of the rifle parts will ever be in CA


Roger that killer. I'm trackin now.

The Armory forurm under the suppressor & NFA firearms section is where you will find your answers. However, most can makers will not warranty their product when used on a barrel that short due to the rounds not wanting to stablize properly. That said, there are many folks here who run cans on their 7.5's w/out issue. I don't personally own & prolly never will since I mainly use my guns for work & wouldn't want to take a chance on a 7.5 for serious duty. 10.3 is shortest that I use. I bet the 7"'s are real fun on the range though. I think it will most likely depend on your particular set up to determine how well a can will work with the 7.5 if the gun itself doesn't have issues of its own.

I had a 5.56 with a 7.5 barrel...it ran awesome...I never suppressed it though.
What i have gleaned from others on arfcom is the rule of thumb is ask the manufacture what is the shortest barrel they warranty their can for. 10.5 is the shortest i have heard.
It doesn't mean you cant run a can on a 7.5 barrel. It just means you proceed at your risk.
I would think if you shot a few and looked for end cap strikes and or key holing on the target,that would tell the true tail. This route could be expensive or potentially dangerous or rewarding. If you do it let us know how it turns out.
On a 9mm 7.5 in barrel would be preferred.
imo
