    How in the blue F does Griffin not feel the slightest bit of embarrassment or shame in this blatant rip off. I mean, it's not as bad as Beetlejuice borrowing all the R&D from the SR25 to make his BeetlejuiceOBR, but it's pretty close imo.

    No sir. With the early MAMS, there were some complaints about the welds (aesthetics) and the cost. I thought I remembered that part of the explanation was the combined use of inconel and steel. But maybe I'm misremembering.

    No idea. But they've never seemed to mind borrowing ideas. With that being said, the Recce series of suppressors seem to be pretty good cans.



    I never really noticed it on the two MAMS I owned, but there is some very interesting directional porting going on in the picture above. That's what really sets the MAMS apart from the imitations. Pretty fascinating actually. It's like the design uses directional diffusion vs just porting.

    Aside from the forwardmost portion of the flashcomp, what else to they have that is similar to KAC's?
    Their taper mount muzzle devices are their own thing. Their suppressors too. I don't know of anything else that would qualify as a "knock off".

    This thread is probably not the right place to have that discussion. I don't mean to be abrupt. Just trying to be respectful of SMGLee and the actual purpose of this thread.

    I've really gotta start saving money for that SR15E3 MOD 2, it's the new #1 on my wish list.

    I have one on pre-order, hoping it arrives this month before I go on vacation.

    I remember that discussion. But I also recall that it was mostly speculation and best-guessing on our part. It was never confirmed or denied by any official KAC rep. Based off the information (or lack thereof) regarding the make-up of the MAMS, there were some assumptions thrown around without any hard data to support the idea. The first time I posted a pic of my naked MAMS it sorta kinda supported the idea that it could possibly be some sort of a steel Inconel hybrid.
