After doing alot of reading, I decided on a aac cyclone for both my 308 and ar15.. I built a precision AR and had the barrel threaded for a 7.62 can.. Just wondering if anyone has had experience with this setup and what their results were? accuracy? sound suppression? thanks for any input..

Re: AAC Cyclone on AR15??

As long as your barrel was threaded correctly, you will be just fine. The 223 will not suppress as well thru a 30cal can as a 5.56 can would... But you will still be enjoying some significant sound reduction. I would recommend you still wear some plugs though.

Cyclone is a great can! One of the best 30cal cans on the market for suppression and performance. I have 2 of them on different rifles and they both are excellent. A little on the heavy side by todays standards but other then that, they are welcomed additions to my rifles.

Enjoy.

Good to hear you ordered the suppressor! Who threaded your barrel?

Re: AAC Cyclone on AR15??

I have a AR with a 24" barrel in 223 that I had threaded for my AAC Cyclone, it is plenty quiet and still shoots moa all day. At 50 yards away you can't tell the difference from a designated 223 can.
