Any Saker owners blow their can off the end of a rifle? Login/Join

I keep a couple of small silicon rubber oven mitts with my centerfire suppressors that come in very handy for tightening or removing hot cans. I consider them essential to my range kit now. I also bought one of SilencerCo's covers that fits my Saker and Octane 45. It's the one that includes an inner sleeve for higher temps. The only thing that sucks about it is that it tends to rotate around the can if you try to tighten the can onto the muzzle or remove the can. It makes the process a little more cumbersome. I would probably only use the cover in the field.

I just stumbled upon this. Interesting...
Saker ASR: https://silencerco.com/silencers/saker/

Edit: I don't see anything on the website coming stock with a MAAD Trifecta now.

Picked up my Omega this morning and my dealer told me about the Saker ASR. He said Silencerco is done with Trifecta mount.

Fantastic. I guess I know which direction I'll head if my replacement Trifecta mount doesn't work out. The SilencerCo rep I spoke with to get the replacement mount a few days ago stated that he preferred the Trifecta to the ASR. That's why I opted for it rather than getting the ASR now.

...still think the Dead Air Key Mo is the way to go. It's got a taper mount like the Trifecta has inside.

It's another ~$500 I'd prefer not to spend if I don't have to do it, considering the cost of the mount, two muzzle devices, and installation of the devices.

Regarding the OP - Been there, done that trying to avoid it getting stuck. I've also had the my Saker 762 get stuck on the Trifecta mount. Backed the mount off the barrel trying to take it off at the end of the session too.

After calling Silencer Co, they sent me a replacement. I use copper Anti-seize lube now as a precaution. I know it's messy, not perfect and a PITA. But I've got two Trifectas and a 30 cal brake, its too much money to replace as I've got too many other needs and wants.

One thing I do not have any issue with(now that I use anti-seize) is it getting loose while shooting. Baffle strikes are not a concern.

I got my Dead Air Key Mo installed on the Saker today and can honestly say it was worth the trouble. Locks up very tight, easy on and off...like the Trifecta did when it was brand new or better. No wobble. I'm impressed.

Witnessed an Omega flying across a shoot house early this month. It was on an ASR mount.



I know the 51 tooth AAC mount is considered a dated design, but I have never had issues with either stuck cans or cans shooting off the end of the rifle.


That Dead Air solution seems to be the ticket.

dry-fly, have you had a chance to shoot the with the Key Mo yet? I'm interested in your thoughts after use. My Saker never worked itself loose, but did fly down range because it wasn't put on correctly. My fault and likely to happen again.

Thanks.

Funny you ask.. I got the Dead Air flash hider rock setted on and the Key Mo installed, then packed everything up the next day (so I thought) for the range and forgot the Saker. I'll be back in a day or two as it's just down the street and report back. Sorry!

I did exact same thing last time I went shooting, forgot my OmegaSmile

The only Omega issue I heard of was the guts blowing out, with the tube and ASR still on the rifle. This was at the NFA review channel shoot two years ago.

If you can afford it, Dead Air has a solution. If not the ASR is the best you can get from Silencerco.

In case anyone is interested, Silencerco had me send my Saker to them because the replacement mount was doing the same thing as my original, coming loose after a few rounds. Basically they said it was normal. I'm going to stick with the Trifecta mount for now.

I made a video for them to view to hopefully assist in troubleshooting which you can view here:

https://youtu.be/z_GG2pDJwBE

Text I added to the video description that summarizes Silencerco's response for anyone else who might view it:
"I made this video to document an issue I'm having with my new Saker 762 for troubleshooting purposes. It shoots a little loose after a few rounds.
The video was really meant for viewing by Silencerco personnel.

UPDATE:
Silencerco looked at my Saker and has already shipped it back to me. They called me after examining it and said that what it's doing is normal and there is no danger of a baffle or end cap strike. It's designed that way to avoid getting stuck on the muzzle device. They also told me that the different amount of rotation (approximately 90 degrees vs 180 degrees) between the two mounts is to be expected. The rep I talked to stated they made a change and newer mounts will have about 180 degree rotation. He did not say why this change was made. Overall I am very pleased with their customer service. They were patient and put my mind at ease. And I should only be without the Saker for just over a week. They did offer to swap it to the ASR mount but I prefer the Trifecta so I'm sticking with it for now. I only have four suppressors but they are all Silencerco. Part of the reason for that is their reputation for customer service and they have shown me it's not just hype."

I shot with my Saker today after getting it back from Silencerco. I had no issues with it shooting loose or getting stuck on either my Ruger Gunsite or SIG 516. Silencerco sent it back with the original mount. I don't know if they changed anything or not but I'm happy. This Saker is awesome. If .308 ammo was cheaper I'd shoot that Ruger all day.

Shot my Saker extensively yesterday on my newly finished 12.5" .308 AR. No problems and it came off easily when I finished up. I may just be one of the lucky ones, but across several rifles/muzzle devices and several thousand rounds I've never had any issues.



Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

For those who replaced their mounts, was SICO ooking for a specific problem or just that you wanted an exchange? I have a 5.56 and 7.62 saker and 4 or 5 mounts so its a sizable cost to switch all of those out.

I simply asked if they would replace my two MAAD mounts, two flash hiders, and a brake based on the repeated sticking issue and my MAAD mount failure resulting in a launched can. Their answer was to just send them back and they would replace them with the ASR versions. No RMA. The replacements showed up via Fedex 11 days after they received them.
