Alongside the 22QDA, Gemtech had their Integra out for us to test drive. No, I’m not talking about the Japanese Import from Honda/Acura. The Integra is their integrally suppressed .300blk AR.
While integrally suppressed ARs is nothing new and certainly .300blk is no longer the new kid on the block, what makes the Integra worthy of notice? It has a bore evacuator. Watch the video below. At the 7min mark it explains bore evacuators.
In case you didn’t watch the video, the bore evacuator creates a pocket of pressure and helps evacuate the gasses out the muzzle. A great idea for tank operators and an even better idea for a suppressor.
You can see how short the gas tube is and how close the gas block is to the receiver.
I got to shoot some rounds and as expected I did not get gas to the face. We were shooting Gemtech .300blk sub sonic loads so I would be interested to see what it does with super sonic ammo.
