    This is the guy who left SilencerCo?
    What makes them better?
    Seems they just have the same QD-type system as AAC has as their main selling point…

      Yes Mike Papas is the ceo

      All stellite internals and I’d say a pretty impressive quality control regime.

      The QD is totally different from anything I’ve seen, entirely one handed operation, to levers to pull, or collars to twist, you just crank it on and off. Additionally the mount had a taper rather than a flat shoulder, which guarantees better lockup.

        I used to work for mike at a gun store, he’s a really cool guy. It’s funny to me how he makes these super next-gen cans and drove a car held together with bubble gum and bailing wire; but maybe that’s a tribute to his genius.
