Default Choosing the muzzle device that is most compatible with the most common cans.

I am trying to find the best combination of muzzle device that works on a 14.5 blackout barrel pinned and welded and common cans. Is there a way to keep things more military instead of all the different proprietary types of suppressors out there?

No.

Its a big reason i dont like pinning a muzzle device.

Another is your giving up barrel length replacing it with unusable space.

My opinion is sbr the gun or stick with 16" barrels.

There is no standard for qd muzzle devices each company is different even amongst different models.

Surefire has the widest range of adaptor support using the best designed brakes and hiders out there to mount their suppressors. Their brakes and hiders are so good people get them who dont own suppressors.

Choose a can first, then get the apropriate md.

A good gunsmith can unpin and remove a muzzle device, but there is a chance they will destroy the md or barrel tho.

JonM's right the Surefire mb56k is one of the best md's I've even used. Surefire cans are expensive tho.

Thanks, I have always preferred the surefire mb but the costnofbthe cans are a real drawback. AAC has been my second choice due to the cost drop from surefire. So when all is said and done that's probably what I'll go with.
