I posted this question on the AR pistol board and haven't had a reply, so figured I'd throw it here, too...

How long of a barrel do I *need* to keep it from tearing up the can? I've got a TAC-16 on a very heavy HBAR right now that I'd throw on the AR pistol (home defense duty) to get the weight down some.

Thanks.

Barrel length shouldn't matter. It's the alignment that will or will not cause a strike. Just make sure it's properly installed and you'll be fine.

Most suppressor mfgs give a minimum barrel length of 10.5".

IIRC, Ops. Inc. is the only mfg that will warranty use on 7.5" barrels.

But that's not about baffle strikes, it's about pressure.

make sure your bullets are fully stabilized with that short of a barrel.

If weight and length are a consideration, a silencer like the AAC Ranger would be 1.75 inches shorter and over a half a pound lighter, and be quieter than the TAC 16.

So you could go with a pistol with a 2" longer barrel and still be overall the same and be much lighter on the front end.

Unfortunately, I have to worth with what I have.


So, 10.5 or so then is the consensus for the TAC-16?
