MK-46 Machine Gun Suppressor Baffle Strike

    Last weekend the 1st Annual Silencer Are Legal Shoot has held in Dallas, Texas. By all accounts it was a lot of fun. One interesting video from the shoot is of a MK-46 5.56mm machine gun with an AAC 249-SD suppressor. The suppressor somehow came loose, wobbled and a 5.56mm round (or rounds) hit one of its baffles, blowing it off the gun. Makes for a fun video 🙂

    I was kindly invited to the shoot by Silencerco but was unable to attend. I hope to attend next year.
