Spike’s Tactical brought out their Compressor ST out at Big 3 East last week.
At first glance it looks like any other suppressed SBR AR. That is until you start seeing the subtle attention to detail.
The gas tube would over heat due to the length. So they solved this by wrapping the gas tube with beryllium copper wire. It acts like a heat sink to dissipate the heat away from the gas tube. They also machined the barrel with WWII style cooling fins. Mostly for aesthetics but they do work in cooling down the barrel.
Handling the Compressor, you can feel the quality of the build. This gun was rather popular and when it was my time to shoot it, it was a bit too hot. So they handed me their other Compressor to try out.
The Compressor ST retails at almost $3,000. Check out their website for more info.
