Tech Tip from Mers’ Mailbag – Painting Suppressors

Q: Hello, I own several of your suppressors and was wondering if the outside of them can be spray painted.  Many of my rifles and handguns are the desert tan color and I would like my cans to match the guns.  I have seen them painted in magazines. Can I use a heat paint of some sort ?.  What do you recommend ? Thanks. RJ.

A: Thanks for the email and support!

Yes, you can paint the silencer with whatever you like- either to give it a color or to “refinish” a used can.

Please note: rifle silencers get very hot as they are used, about 800-1000 degrees to be honest, and really there is no paint that will hold up to that forever. So, plan on painting it again after you burn this coat of paint off. As with any paint application surface prep is the key to success- The surface should be clean, de-greased, and dry.

As for what paint to use, we use MolyResin™ for all of our rifle silencers. Just follow the directions and your good (it does best if it is baked on but can air dry).

Personally, I have always used Rust-Oleum “high heat” spray paint because it is flat black and very easy to apply. Here is a link.

Show us your AAC

Got another pic from my sister-in-law. She’s continuing her all-expenses-paid vacation in sandy land, and finding time to spread the AAC word. Thanks S, stay safe!

History lesson

Very cool sheet from inside the back cover of a Maxim Silencer manual that Mers picked up at an estate sale…  circa 1925.

HK-416 + AAC = funtimes

The topic of an HK-416 and AAC M4-2000 came up on silencertalk, and to illustrate my response, I dug up some awesome shots from our trip down to Ft. Benning last fall. Yes, the HK is an awesome host and quite handy with it’s 10″ barrel. Just keep your bare neck away from the flying brass.

Gear Review – AAC BRAKEOUT™

The first batch of BRAKEOUT™s have been making their way into end users’ hands. Here’s a two part review from user gotm4 on the forums at Silencertalk.com. You can get the uppers mentioned from the fine folks at Bravo Company USA.

Part 1:

I shot mine last night on my 14.5″ midlength BCM upper (w/optimized gas system).

With this upper I’ve so far used a AAC M4-2000 Brake and a KAC Triple Tap. I didn’t get a chance to put a lot of rounds through it last night but what I did use was American Eagle 55gr FMJ and Federal XM193.

The AAC Brakeout feels much like a KAC Triple Tap in recoil with AE223 both have the little to no flash. One thing I did notice was that although they feel similar the KAC recoil impulse feels a bit smoother when shooting at high speed. With XM193 the KAC Triple Tap produces more flash but shoots a bit flatter. So the KAC appears to be a little more efficient with higher pressure ammo. XM193 has more recoil in the 14.5″ gun than the AE223. The Triple Tap and AAC Brakeout sound about the same to me. Both are quieter than the Benny Hill Rolling Thunder. The AAC Brake (not the Brakeout) on this 14.5″ upper is actually louder than the Rolling Thunder on my 16″ BCM midlength SS410 upper…..weird but true.

The AAC Brake on this 14.5″ BCM was by far the best at recoil reduction but like all true brakes it was the loudest.

And part 2:

Tonight I shot this AAC Brakeout again. This time with 230 rounds. I used 100 rounds of XM193, 75 rounds of American Eagle 223 (AE223) 55gr FMJ, and 55 rounds of PMC Bronze 55gr FMJ.
No malfunctions of of any kind. I shot it all with a LMT enhanced M16 bolt carrier, BCM H buffer and buffer spring, BCM bolt, BCM cam pin, and a BCM firing pin. This is a BCM 14.5” hammer forged midlength with a tuned (optimized) gas system with a AAC Brakeout.
This set up it is almost the lightest recoiling AR15 I’ve ever shot. It feels very similar to my BCM Tactical Optics 3gun rifle (BCM SS410 16” midlength, w/BCM M16 carrier), w/tuned gas system using a CAR buffer and a Benny Hill Rolling Thunder brake.

It locks back on empty 30 round PMAGs with all ammo tested so far which is especially impressive with PMC. It’s truly incredible soft shooting when shooting PMC I can feel it when the bolt hits the rear of the receiver extension and chamber the next round it’s a very weird sensation when I’m shooting as fast as possibly can. It’s too slow with PMC in my opinion I prefer it to be a tad faster cycling. It feels great with AE223 and XM193. Quite a bit of flash with the XM193 but just right with AE223. At 15yds with this set up I can shoot a fist sized group as fast as I can pull the trigger. A few people at the range thought I had a M16, I was cranking rounds off that fast. It’s truly impressive set up in this way.

The Brakeout does not ring at all like the Blackout.
