I'm specifically seeking input from those who either own, use, have used, or are generally knowledgable of the KAC M4QD &/or Gemtech M4-96D cans.

From my "research", the Gemtech seems to be a sturdier unit, since it's machined from a single stock. The KAC, OTOH, is a welded unit.

I've heard that it can become difficult to remove a M4-96D after excessive carbon fouling has built up around its bi-lock interface. I'm concerned that the Gemtech's mount design might allow it to become stuck on the muzzle. KAC's design seems to allow it to be removed rather easily, but there are reports of M4QD's launching off the muzzle - is this true?

I wouldn't want a can to be stuck on the end of my bbl., but I wouldn't want it to go launch downrange, either.

Thanks in advance.

Why are you considering the KAC unit if its twice as expensive?

KAC's M4QD is termed as the flying hammer in some spec op communities. You can judge that from your own conclusion. both are excellent suppressor, both work wonder on the M4, the M4QD is just cooler looking, but ithink the bi-lock is a better idea. I have a M4-96D registered in my C3 friend's book. I take it out shooting when ever possible. the carbon build up is pretty bad sometimes, but it is never a problem.

Is this due to FA/MG fire, or because of some inherent flaw in the KAC design?
