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. Last week Austin R. brought us a very special look at the B&T MK23 pistol 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. Whether you are a long-time fan of 300BLK or you are just trying to decide if you are going to make the jump into this suppressor-born cartridge, stick around for a little light reading.

SILENCER SATURDAY #269: First Shots – The SIG MCX-SPEAR And SLH SLX Suppressors

Good morning everyone and welcome back to TFB’s Silencer Saturday brought to you by Yankee Hill Machine, manufacturers of the best value for performance suppressors on the market. Last week we reviewed the attributes of what I think makes the SIG MCX the best suppressor platform currently available – especially when we are talking about rifles chambered in 300BLK. This week we step it up a notch with the brand new SIG MCX-SPEAR short barrel rifle chambered in 7.62×51 paired with the SIG SLH762-QD (full size) and SIG SLX762C-QD (compact) suppressors. As a normally practical, tool-focused shooter, why am I drawn to a 13″ 7.62 NATO rifle? Let me explain.

TFB REVIEW: The New SIG Rattler Canebrake

Multiple variants of SIG’s widely successful MCX Rattler were brought to this year’s SHOT Show.  SIG seems keen to show off the versatility of the Ratter platform. Of the new Rattlers, one particular variant caught my eye, the Rattler Canebrake.  Featuring a new oversized rail with a faux suppressor tucked underneath, the Canebrake looks like a proper “SD” style firearm.  SIG even took it a step further, making the weight and size of the faux suppressor roughly the same as their SRD762 suppressor.  All of this is done perfectly to make the rattler both suppressor and end-user friendly.
