Thanks, unfortunately suppressors are verbotten up here, so this'll only see light ss loads. Best laid plans anyway LOL!
Is there any logical reason the bureaucrats give for making suppressors illegal or have the law makers been watching to much Hollywood?

I don't think the term "logic" goes with any gun law anywhere these days LOL. But no, no reasoning at all other that "we say so", from a string of left leaning libtard gov't sessions.

It's a hold over from almost 100 years ago when people were afraid of alcohol and anything that went bang.

Notice, alcohol doesn't do anything by itself either, and they actually got away with banning it for a while. :roll:

The military has finally come around to using suppressors on combat rifles. There's at least some hope for this generation to not end up like all of us with tinnitus and hearing loss from active duty.

Well handguard arrived today, but still waiting on the brake - backordered but supposed to be in stock again by next week....patience is a virtue! Will put it all together though, just wait to shoot it til that brake arrives.

"Black Box" Customs ships out in a black box, makes sense LOL! But a great job, very happy with the results! It's a 9.5" OdinWorks "O2 Lite" M-lok forend, and like it's name it is a very light piece indeed.

All together, except that brake - first build again, and an interesting learning experience for sure. Once the brake does arrive, I'll get it out for testing - tune in the gas block and sight in the scope.
