    SBR suppressor advice

    Almost done building 11.5" 556 SBR. I was set on one of the surefire cans but after reading a little there are alot of good options. I was about to purchase SF3P flash hider but not 100% I'm going with surefire now. Looking for a can thats relatively short and relatively lightweight. Also want something that quick detach option. No direct thread. This will be my first suppressor so I have no experience with them. Any advice will be much appreciated.

    Get the Surefire! Fast attach, durable, hides flash better than any can on the market. Doesnít have an IR glow when it gets hot.

    IR glow is something I had not thought of. Why do I see so many people on here bashing surefire cans. I had always thought they were good be I see alot of people talking crap about them lately. Just read a post yesterday were someone was saying you shouldn't buy suppressors from a light company. Thats what made me rethink my decision.

    You think the 11.5 is too much for the mini?

    You see people bash them because they donít know what makes a good can. Many have a benchmark of quiet on video or quite to the meter. Thatís a flawed test for one, but itís not indicative of what matters.

    On the mini, itís small. Small enough that youíre not going to have the volume for good performance, but if kind of ďtakes the edge offĒ in a sense. I think if you buy a mini, youíd end up buying a larger can anyway.

    Get the Surefire RC2, itís amazing.

    Edit: Just curious, but who is saying you shouldnít buy a can from a light manufacturer?

    Mini/K cans on shorter barrels are more concussion reducers than suppressors. I’d just go with a full size RC2.

    It was on one of the forums. I will see if I can find it again. They person pretty much said buy a suppressor from a suppressor company and not a weapon light company. I just took it with a grain of salt but it got me thinking so I figured I would ask you guys.

    I have both a Mini and full size RC2 that I use with 11.5" to 14" guns. Both lock up quickly and securely with minimal flash and POA/POI shift. Most poopooing I've seen on SF cans concern decibel reduction which should be towards the bottom of the list in terms of selection criteria.

    For shorter barrels I'd go with a longer can, and vice versa. I also have a Saker-K which, with the Dead Air Key-Mo mount, is the about the same size and weight as the RC2 and performs just as well.
