Adding a suppressor to a direct impingement (DI) gas system like the one found in most AR-patterned rifles can have an overall effect on the rifle’s operation. Many silencers will constrict the normal flow of gas out of the muzzle creating a effect sometimes referred to as back-pressure. Instead of exiting the barrel, gas and particulate matter from the deflagration of gun powder ends up increasing cyclic rates, fouling and wear and tear on critical components. Bootleg Inc now offers an adjustable carrier that controls gas flow with settings adjusted with just the turn of a screw.
Obviously gas control is not a new premise; adjustable gas blocks, uppers, and even other carriers are in use by many a suppressor-lover. But it’s always good to see new options on the market. Bootleg seems to have designed a quality product and it will be neat to see some reviews hit the Internet.
The Bootleg Lightweight Adjustable Carrier is machined from S7 Tool Steel, and features a four setting vent system to relieve excess gas pressure from suppressor use.
