I know that you'll never make back what you put into a suppressor.

However, I have a threaded 5.56 phantom from Yankee Hill Machine. I want to upgrade to something that is QD and SWR's SPECWAR has caught my eye.

There is a dealer in town. If I wanted to sell it to a dealer, how would I go about that? How does it work and what would the difference be between me selling it to a co-worker who is considered a state resident?

Thanks for your time.

No matter who you sell it to there is a $200 tax. A dealer is not going to buy a can from you unless it is for personal use, as there would be another $200 tax when sold to another unlicensed person. Sell it directly to another person in your state, and then there is only one $200 tax.

Thanks, I wasn't sure if a dealer had to pay the tax.

I don't know what GA has for internet firearms sales. here in Alaska we have the Alaska 4X4 network, Alaska Outdoors forum, and the Alaska Machine Gun Assn, who will allow firearms to be posted for sale. I would try to advertise it for sale, at a good price, and do a individual to individual sale, which would cost the buyer a $200 stamp.
It would have to be a reallly good price to catch someone's interest.
I bought a Gemtech at half off retail that way.
hope this helps,

325$ a fair price to you? I might know a person or two who may be interested.........

Thanks for your time.

Just giving you options.

Have you contacted YHM about changing the mount type?

Yeah, they told me I would be better off just buying a new QD can from them.

I don't want two cans. I just want one QD can. I have a 10.5 SBR a 5.45 AR and a SCAR. I need something I can move around readily.

Figure 50% of what a new one sells for.

I just picked up that same can for $400 + tax stamp for a new one just as a guide. Prepare to get raped, if it were me I would just keep it and have two.

looks like what I'll be doing then. Sigh, I guess I'll just purchase a .223 bolt gun and keep it on there permanently.

Oh darn...you'll have to have two

I second the "keep it and have two" idea. I don't think you'd get enough out of it in the end to make it worth selling. That thread-on 556 can will be right at home on a .223 bolt gun. I've tried using my YHM QD cans on bolt rifles with marginal success. They work great on my auto's but I haven't had a ton of success making them work that well on bolt rifles. The 556 QD worked ok on a .223 SPS-V, but the 762 kept coming loose one notch on my 10fcp 308; it never backed off more than that one notch, but then it was just barely loose enough to mess with the harmonics and degrade the accuracy some. I recently picked up a thread-on 762 can for my bolt rifle and the groups basically shrunk in half...

Benji,
Thanks for the heads up. I was considering another YHM can. However, the new SWR SPECWAR has really caught my eye. I could do the YHM thing as well and just get the PWS brake for my 10.5 so the blast baffle doesn't get destroyed. Decisions Decisions. I also want something that looks good on the SCAR and the YHM has got one ugly flash hider.
