AAC has been making .300 BLK rifles for quite a while now, but apparently the demand for an AAC branded 5.56 rifle is so great that they’ve gone into full production on those as well. The rifles will be available in the same configuration as the existing .300 BLK guns, but with a different barrel. Also “new” this year . . .
Originally developed for the military, this 5.56 silencer is designed to be mass produced and dirt cheap while still having the durability and effectiveness that we’ve seen in AAC’s other cans. The silencer will start production somewhere in Q2 of this year, and the expected retail price is about $650. It will also use the same 51T QD system as the rest of AAC’s main line of silencers.
Lastly, the 762-SD is back! The original 762-SD became the shorter 762-SDN-6, which retails for a hair over $800. Thanks to some engineering improvements from Freedom Group’s efficiency guys the new 762-SD will feature a new all-inconel baffle stack for added longevity, and only a loss of about 2 dB over the smaller brother, but comes with a price tag of $650. So it’s lighter, tougher, and less expensive.
