    With barrels less than 14.5", I use full-size cans (SOCOM556-RC2); with 14.5" and longer, I use the -MINI2. Reason being that the mini cans are known not to be hearing safe on the shorter barrels.

    If a long barrel with a short can is as quiet as a short barrel with a long can but with better velocity, why bother with a short barrel at all?

    A short barrel with a short can may not be hearing safe but it's much hearing safer than a long barrel without any can at all and handier than than a long barrel with a short can.

    Is a full length can on a short barrel actually "hearing safe"? Is it much quieter than if a short can were used? If so, is it enough to give up the handiness of the shorter length? Personally, I see no reason to use full sized cans on my shorty ARs.

    would a short barrel with full size can be quieter than a short barrel with mini can?

    I don't think most people want a suppressor on a short barrel to keep the length/oal down as much as they want to suppress/quiet down the rifle. I could be wrong though?

    Silver solder is an option for easier removal I believe. I wouldn’t necessarily cut the barrel down unless you’re dead set on wanting that inch and a half difference. But again as stated above, whatever you do make sure you use a solid Smith.
