One of the not so secret secrets in the gun industry is that SilencerCo Sakers have a habit of departing the end of the barrel and making their way downrange. Ask anyone at SilencerCo and they’ll tell you that the trifecta mount is fine assuming it’s used properly. If not, the cans tend to go flying. Generally speaking, the ASR mount from the Specwar series seems to get the nod for being a bit more robust and gun blogger proof.
For 2017, rumor is that SilencerCo is dropping the Specwar series entirely, bringing the ASR mount to the Saker, and calling it good. Having shot the Saker 7.62 in various settings over the years, I have always been fairly pleased with the sound reduction and performance.
This is a step in the right direction for the series as it removes an internal competitor for the Saker and improves the series with a more loved mount. Pricing should remain in the sub $1000 range moving forward.
