Recently bought a LE6920-MPS 5.56 for nighttime hog hunting. Was in a gun store picking it up and checking out suppressors and the guy behind the counter said the really won't help on a 5.56. Is this true? I'd really like to quieten it down if possible.

Go somewhere else. They donít deserve your business.

A quality suppressor will take your AR down to near 22LR levels. Itís not as quiet as a bolt action because of the gas system but it is MUCH quieter than unsuppressed.

They work very well. I shoot mine without hearing protection outdoors.

Where do you live?

I do a lot of business with Xtreme firearms in Richmond and Payne Brothers in Katy. They are both good guys to deal with, know their stuff, and have a good selection of suppressors in stock. Iíd recommend a 30 caliber suppressor like the Silencerco Omega for your first one because you can use it on any caliber up to 300 Win Mag. Be careful though, shooting suppressed is an addiction and you wonít have just one suppressor when all is said and done.

I donít know many places down that way.

The process seems arduous to purchase but once youíve done it once, it gets easier.

Do you have any heirs that you may want to pass the suppressor down to? They are heavily regulated and you canít just give it to a son, brother, etc, but there are ways to do it.

Yep, would definitely want to set it up so I could pass it down to an heir.

You should look up Sean Cody, Texas-SC on tbh. He'll do a trust for you and give you a TBH discount. He along with many on here can help you through the process.

There's a few different ways to own a suppressor but I won't go into great detail as I'm not that well versed. I will say the trust route is simple and Sean will take care of you.

Be patient, the wait can be long.

Sounds like Sean is the go-to guy.

Wait? Iíve bought 3 Randall knives in my lifetime so I know the meaning of wait. The last one took 47 months. Theyíre out to 5 years now.

Guess I need to decide on which one and get the process started.

Any mods required to the gun to shoot one?

Barrel threading in relation to the bore not the outside of the barrel.

How to make a M16-AR15 Tacticool????
#1 Throw all of them off a cliff and replace them with the AK 47.
#2 Talk all the countries that use AK 47s into doing a firearm exchange with us.
#3 Put all M16 & AR 15 on a slow boat to China rigged with explosives & then blow it up & then replace them with the AK 47!
#5 Start using a stick instead and say."Ka-pow, Ka-pow".
#6 Throw a rock?
God bless!
Semper fi.

He bought a Colt 6920, his barrel is already threaded.

Default AR/Tacticool Thread of Awesome! (AR Info here!)

One fire and the next shell hangs up and has these dents when I pul it out of the gun. What did I do wrong?


Pulled the BCG, disassembled and removed some oil then reassembled and itís cycling now without the heavy dents.

Did you clean it before trying to shoot it? They come lubed but its packing grease not lubricant so you need to clean and lube it first.

So you may be good to go now.

Put about 15 rounds through it this evening with no more issues. I think I over-lubricated.
