I also installed the ASR mount and 9mm end cap on the Silencerco Hybrid which I finally got out of jail a few weeks ago.

In direct thread mode the Hybrid sounded great and had zero blowback, but it would keep loosening up due to the LH muzzle threads and RH can adaptor threads. I wanted to be able to fire the MPX without the can sometimes so this new ASR setup seemed like a great solution to both. Now I can torque the flash hider down with some Rocksett and still have a QD mount with a locking feature that won’t loosen while shooting.

So far it seems to fit great with just enough room to access the lock ring with the factory 8” barrel and factory rail. Everything locks up nice and solid, no wobbles anywhere. Now I just need my Form 1 to be approved so I can put a real stock on this thing!







Beautiful set-up! I wasn't aware they had a 9mm specific flash hider. Very cool!

I just found out about it, I think it has just become available in the past few months. They also have a .46 caliber muzzle brake with several thread options. I think it's a great idea to further expand the modularity of the Hybrid suppressor.




I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious.

Forgot to report back. Barrel chopped to 4.5". I only shoot this suppressed now (handguard is still factory length). It works fine now with the FM 147gr reman. Nice and quiet.



Not minority enough!

Anyone else put a tape measure on the Sig brace, about 15 inches from trigger face to the end of the brace. Is there an easy way to shorten this up?

I bought a couple of the 5 round loaders. Actually like them better than the LULA loaders. I have the LULA for rifle and pistols. I load each one and then push them in.

Received the magula loader this week, very well made and a significant advance in design over the other loader. Simple to use, you slide the loader on the mag until it clicks in place, then moving the lever back and forth for each load you drop in a round moving from right to left and rotate the lever back or forward to depress the round into the mag

It's simple, quick and easy, no loading five rounds into a slot then pushing in rounds

Both work, either are better than using your thumbs. The speed is probably the same as the magula is one round at a time, the other slams in 5 at a time, however you have the time spent putting rounds in the strip holder

I have had this problem for quite a while, but I'm only bringing it up now ( always thought it would go away with break-in). Anyone else have problems having their mags drop free when empty? Gen I or II, slide in battery or locked to the rear, it doesn't matter. I see some minor improvement when I scrub the magazine well with oil, but I hate having to keep my mag well oiled.

If the magazine isn't fully seated (and I mean seated and try to yank it out) the magazine catch has enough tension to hold a full magazine, and feed successfully. It happens more frequently when seating on a closed bolt, but I've seen folks whom I've lent my gun to, do it even with the bolt locked open.

Greetings,

Has/did anyone use the sig tapered collar adapter when installing a muzzle device?

Has anyone heard about the shotshow sale code for the Sig Store? Someone passed it along on Facebook today.

SIGSHOTSHOW17 is the code he said was good for 20% off any one item thru Friday 1/20.

I haven't tried it yet but might try to scoop up another Gen 1 mag if it works.

I think Gunmagwarehouse was having a sale on a 3 pack of the gen1 mags. I think it was $67 shipped or so.

Yes, and I bought that exact package. Very nice deal!

They work fine in my gen2. I did buy another set last week as well.

I modified one of the gen1 mags. It now holds 35 and so far so good. No issues. I'll test it some more before I do it another one to see how it holds up long term. I only shoot mine suppressed now since I cut the barrel down and not the handguard.

mkueffer - How difficult was it to remove the flash hider on your MPX? May I ask what process you used to remove it?

Reason I ask...I've been attempting to get the FH off of my MPX, and I am having a bit of "difficulty". Thank you.

I heated mine up a bit with a hair dryer, and didn't have too much trouble getting it loose.

Remember that it is a left hand thread......

I used a vice to hold the barrel wrapped in a piece of scrap rubber/vinyl and secured tight. Was fairly easy that way.




A few Sigs and some others

if you know that, then no there is nothing special to taking it off. Mine came off with the proper application of force....
