Turbo K showed up at my ffl today. Love the QD ratcheting mount. Now we wait..
That could work, although it’s for a pretty specific circumstance. What about a suppressor wrap? I know some manufacturers don’t recommend them, at least for certain cans, so I don’t know if this would work in your case. I think it depends on the construction material. Like I know Gemtech says not to use a wrap on one of their light-duty rifle cans as it’s made from aluminum and needs open air to dissipate the heat to prevent damage.I’m trying to figure out the best way to prevent burns from the can during transitions to secondary. Here’s what I’m thinking.
The cloud defensive OWL is a bit bigger and heavier than I’m comfortable with on a SBR. If I get rid of the OWL and get a Surefire (or other), I can find a mount that extends out a bit past the hand guard (left side) and block the suppressor from making contact with my leg.
Anyone else try this or see anyone else do it?
My main consideration was size and real estate when mounted. The OWL is an awesome light. But the giant switch pad that can’t be configured differently and the huge light were negatives to me. May be a better option for a longer rifle. The micro lights up the back yard very well. Had to bump up the brightness of the optic because the light was washing it out.Interesting debates on P&S and T&A and the Modlite groups on what head to use in what situations. In the end, A LOT of what each individual end-user said made sense, when they justify it against their personal preferences and how they read the scenarios they encounter.
TL/DR - user preference.
