Simplistic Shooting Solutions – QD Brake Shield for AAC Mounts

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013

Weapon Outfitters has the QD Brake Shield for AAC Mounts by Simplistic Shooting Solutions in stock. If you’re running an SBR with a brake, the gun can be LOUD. Some like it that way, but not everyone at the range is going to appreciate your particular taste in noise. Use the QD Brake Shield when you don’t have a suppressor in place and it will direct the gases and noise forward, away from the shooter.

According to Weapon Outfitters, this mount is compatible with AAC suppressor mounts for 5.56, and 7.62/6.8/300 BLK. If your mount fits the M4-1000, M4-2000, 762-SD, or 762-SDN-6, then this device will fit your mount.

AAC debuted the Honey Badger at AUSA. It was designed as a replacement for the venerable MP5 which will soon see its 50th birthday. However, the Honey Badger offers a couple of advantages. First, it is chambered for the .300 blackout cartridge. This means the weapon can fore both super and subsonic ammo. Additionally, it is based on the Stoner design which requires little transition from the M4.

AUSA – AAC

Tuesday, October 11th, 2011

This is the Advanced Armament Corp MG-SD suppressor recently adopted by USSOCOM. As we stated in our article, a specific 7.62 can wasn’t purchased. That’s because the MG-SD works with both 5.56 as well as 7.62. To make this work it uses a standard flashider that is available in different calibers.

The Army’s Weapons Signature Management Efforts

Monday, February 14th, 2011

KitUp! and their parent, Military.com ran a good report last week on the Army’s fielding of enhanced flash hiders as the first step of a weapons signature management strategy. We only have a couple of things to add to their story. As we understand it, the Army also purchased flash hiders from BE Meyers as well as AAC and SureFire. Additionally, the current M16 Birdcage-style flash hider dates back to the M16A1. The M16 originally had a 3-prong flash hider that was more effective but was prone to breakage. The design was altered in order to close the pointy end of the thing so that it would not get caught in vines. Reportedly, troops also used the flash hider as a lever to open C-ration crates until it was changed. It will interesting to see how these new flash hiders fair under field conditions although some of these early concerns have been taken into account.

Finally a quick plug for KitUp! If you are not checking it regularly, you should be. KitUp! along with Military Morons are two sites that we feel are complimentary to Soldier Systems Daily.
