Hows it going people, does anyone know if any manu will make a supressor for a 7.5 and warrant it? I am really thinking of getting one for my bushy pistol but cant find any info on them. Any reply would be greatly appreciated

most warranties are voided under 11.5"...

I don't know a single manufacturer that will warrant any .223/5.56 under 10 inches.

Some say its fine but they won't replace it due to the extreme pressures/blast/erosion etc....

No warranty, but there are a few who run them with no problems (over 1k rounds, full auto, etc).

I ran a XXX on a 7.5" barrel with no problems... The suppressor bore size was big enough to send rounds thru sideways, so no need to worry about baffle strikes.

I use my YHM .308 can on my 7.5" 223 upper - I figure it'd have to be pretty far off to to have a baffle strike. Maybe it's a bad idea, I don't know. I do know the .308 can is a tank & the 7.5" is about the only thing I've got that it balances well on.

I believe the SAS suppressors will warranty his on a 7.5. I think he only has a thread mount can though. Also, someone correct me if I'm wrong here but doens't Ops Inc warranty one of their cans on something that short?

Ops cans are warrantied on a 7.5" barrel. Check with Steve from ADCO, he has a can on a 7.5".

Bookhound makes a good point and from what i understand (not first hand experience) that is the general rule of thumb when it comes to super short barrels. However, if you're looking for someone to warrenty a can on something that short it sounds like you're willing to take the risk.

I would go with 10.5 " like mine(SBR) not worth destroying a can over 4". SBR that thing also, will shoot much more accurate.

It's strictly the cool factor Phil, strictly the cool factor.
