Do you know who developed the 3-lug mount? Or why it’s used for pistol caliber guns rather than center fire rifles? Do 3-lug mount suppressors affect accuracy at all?
As SilencerCo writes in the intro to this video . . .
There’s no faster way to attach and detach your suppressor than 3-Lug. With a flick of the wrist, you’re ready to go. However, just like with all things in life the 3-Lug system does have its limitations. Sit back and enjoy while we take a deep dive into the world of 3-Lug glory.
Check out this bit of 3-lug suppressor science with SilencerCo’s Jake Turnblom. He runs down the pluses and minuses of using suppressors with 3-lug mounts.
I did Petrochemical R&D for 32 years.
Well done evaluation.
Hard to instill fear by quickly clicking on a three lug Silencer mount. Instead you have to slowly screw the silencer on the barrel while the audience watches wide-eyed. Then a pair of quiet gun coughs and fade to black.
My ASR (Active Spring Retention) Mount works great and even though it requires a partial twist, I still have plenty of range time left before dinner.
Tell me when anyone bothers top write it down. No interest in 15 minutes of video about it.
Ditto. This may be the age of Youtube, but screw them! for their censorship.
It’s nice to be among the generation that learned to read.
If only silencerco could design rifle mounts as good as the 3 lugs.
Agreed. My Saker now wears a Deadair mount and for whatever reason Silencerco decided to go longer and heavier with their Saker line, so I bought a Sandman K instead. If Deadair would release a competitor to the Silencerco Hybrid I don’t think I would ever look back at Silencerco again.
