QUICK DETACH MYTH
Early on we
were asked if we were going to do a quick detach design for our QSM .223
silencer. In fact, we did design a quick detach mechanism to fit our .223
can, however upon hearing multiple reports of failures of competitor's quick
detach mechanisms, we decided not to put it into production. Reports
abounded of silencers going down range when not intended and also loss of
accuracy due to the inherent errors in these mechanisms.
philosophy has been to provide a silencer that is light enough and small enough
to leave permanently attached to the weapon. On further examination of the
philosophy behind this, we've found that the idea was to be able to quickly
remove the silencer in case of catastrophic failure (private conversation with
SEAL team members). The idea that you can remove a red hot silencer
quickly is a total fallacy. Our opinion is that it is much better to 'put
it on and leave it on'. We have yet to experience a catastrophic failure
of our silencers when properly applied and secured to the barrel.
We still hold to
the philosophy that a secure thread mount is the best, however we've had so many
requests for the quick attach mounting system that we have decided to go ahead
and develop our design. This
mounting system attaches to the popular A2 birdcage flash hider.
Let's be realistic
here. If the estimates of silencer temperature increase are 7 degrees per
round, after 20 rounds if you grab the silencer it's like sticking your hand in
boiling water. Your skin will start to melt basically at any temperature over
140 degrees. If you put 100 rounds through your silencer, temperatures will
approach 800 degrees and you might as well try to grab a red hot stove element.
You will also have exceeded the melting temperature of lead... You figure it
Put it on
and leave it on.
