    My test photo up there WAS gassy and that was the point of doing it. There was zero gas mitigation in place. But it was literally all out of the ejection port. No watery eyes etc, to counter your statement of: “Everyone can attest to the fact suppressing 5.56 in an AR is not only loud, but lots of gas in the face”. Granted my experiment is a sample size of one, but not all ARs are the same, which is the point: none of my other ARs are like the one in the picture.

    Saying a SCAR is a better suppressor host than an AR is like saying a Corvette is better than all other cars with two doors. One very specific example to a very very broad and heterogenous category.
    Weird analogy. But... I guess I should have clarified. The SCAR doesn't need to be tuned to be a better host than an AR. What I was trying to say is that much like a lot of people, I got it tuned so I could squeeze every last bit of performance out of it.
    To me the AR is a poor host, and yeah you can put adjustable gas blocks, gas vents, adjustable carriers, gimmicky charging handles and it will mitigate a little gas, but still won't be a better host than an off the shelf unmodified SCAR. After the average Joe builds himself an AR and throws all the gimmick gas mitigation parts in there, he might has well have spent the money for a SCAR.
    The SCAR off the shelf is better than the best tuned AR out there.

    Your photo of the gas cloud on a well respected name in the AR business kind of illustrates my point. The death cloud just didn't happen to be in the area of your face.

    2mm. PMM also included a 1.8mm

    I will day the Superlative Bleed off gas blocks are the only aftermarket part I feel I’d need on most properly sized gas port ARs. It makes the DI gun vent similarly to a piston system. On my Ultramatch builds (Valkyrie and 223 Wylde), if it weren’t for the sound reduction, you wouldn’t know you were shooting with a can

    Good luck man. I haven't seen a YHM can locally in forever. I think YHM missed the boat. They were one of the first "big names" in the suppressor game back in the day and their marketing never really took off. I remember looking at YHM in 2011 when I bought my first can. Basically back then, it was SF, YHM, AAC, and just a couple of other outfits.

    Ya , it’s proving hard to find any of the cans I’m looking at. Called no less then 10 shops locally, not one of them had any of the 4 I’m looking at.

    Plus SS is out of stock on a lot. And there post over on ar15dotcom says the supply is drying up and could be on a permanent back order status, as they say so far 2020 has been the most sales for them ever.. then being an election year on top of it..

    I’m open to other suggestions..

    Dead Air Sandman K if you can swing it.

    If you don't have to have a 30 cal can, I just picked up another AAC Mini4 for $500

    Phuckkk....I guess this is the wrong time to get into a can..

    Or you could get a 30 cal Griffin can and snag that free extra muzzle device they're offering.

    Lots of guys here own Griffin cans and swear by them. I'm sure you can find some great recommendations.

    You can get the promo especially through SS.

    I guess their promotion worked. I think you'd be pretty happy with the GA Recce 7.

    Griffin doesn't sell cans directly, so, like Alamo says, you can get the promo through SS. Looks like Rainier has decent inventory of GA in stock, fwiw. I think what I like best about GA is their Taper Mount system and very good selection of muzzle devices for that system. Makes it very easy to use one can on multiple platforms and also deliver good aesthetics and performance through the MD w/o the can.

    I appreciate the info...I’m getting frustrated if you can’t tell..lol

    This would be a lot easier if I could shoot some of these things before I committed..

    For you guys with the Reece 5 or 7’s , are they a gassy can? If that makes sense, reading and watching videos you can see some of it, but hard to define it not seeing in person..atleast for me

    That Reece 7 is intriguing, but that’s putting me up over a grand..kinda heavy can at that..the R2 without the QD Mount is 14 ounces and 6.9 long..



    Ahhhhhh
