So I finally got to go out today and shoot my new Silencerco Saker..... It was freaking awesome. Extremely impressed.

Interesting observation on POI shift. The Saker with the Trifecta flash hider was about .75 MOA straight down (16" 223 Wylde LW50 barrel), which I consider very good compared to my AAC cans. The shifts on my M4-2000 is about 3.5 MOA down and my SDN-6 is about 3 MOA down.

I'm definitely buying a few more Silencerco cans!

Well, if POI shift is your concern you should be buying a short direct thread titanium can. More weight hanging off the barrel = more POI shift.

Great idea if you want your rifle to double as a flame thrower.

better mounting system = less POI shift, Saker, KAC QDC/CQB & Surefire SOCOM series do a great job of minimizing shift and not making your rifle a flame thrower.

What weighs more the Saker 556 or the M4-2000? There is a lot more to it than just weight....

Did some testing last night with my sdn6 on a .308 bolt gun and found a 3moa drop with the can on. Not a big deal if you know the POI shift and make the adjustment IMHO. Just need to find what it is for the particular rifle your shooting and make adjustments accordingly.

It should be one of many concerns.
