Quick Tip – Silencer Pot Holder

pot holderIf you shoot a suppressed rifle chances are at some point you have needed to handle a hot suppressor. I have seen makeshift solutions from using an old t-shirt or work glove to a pile of newspapers.

Recently we were testing a suppressor for point of impact shift. This required shooting, removing, reinstalling, repeating. Over and over again.

MATEN Project stretches its legs at Rockcastle Shooting Center (1000 yards)

The MATEN did not perform as well as I had hoped it would with the 168gr Black Hills Gold at long range.

Since the MATEN was intended as a LE Sniper/DMR Rifle is has passed the test and I consider it a success. We will still be running a 100 yard accuracy test and a “debrief” about how well each component worked for us.
