sweet review, how many rounds did you put through it?

Nice looking can. Are all the baffles inconel inside a titanium tube (rather than just the blast baffle)? Just basing that on the FA and 10.5" rating; most Ti cans aren't made for full auto use.

I like the finish that it's got versus the "white" or unfinished look... And I bet you can hardly feel that thing on the Tavor with how it's balanced

Any video of night shooting? I've seen some Ti cans spark and curious how this does with the materials combo.

Not yet. Hopefully when it gets out of NFA jail.

Mr G. You really sold me on this particular can. Have you gotten it outta Jail yet, still recommend it? Any dealers you'd suggest I'd try and go through to pick one up?
