SILENCER SATURDAY: Why, Hello SIG MCX And 300 Blackout Subs

Good afternoon everyone and welcome back to TFB’s Silencer Saturday brought to you by Yankee Hill Machine, manufacturers of the new YHM R45 Multi-Host Suppressor.

This week we return to one of my greatest loves, suppressing 300 Blackout subs with the SIG Sauer MCX SPEAR-LT rifle and suppressor platform.
