    Mine has a factory C barrel on it, thus the use of the thread adapter. The Saker may not be the same as all other cans. I believe I saw that some AAC cans fit under the gas block.

    Thanks, Tony. I am quite smitten with it. I am thankful for guys like Tom who made it possible to have a civilian version.

    Are there any evidenced issues suppressing the "fused receiver/stub" G36 conversions? I have two of these by Tom Bostic and have been intending to have one suppressed with a Surefire can. My reservation is with the additional pressure created and if that could over-stress the fused receiver. Any experience with this? Nzfly, how much have you now shot suppressed? I sure as hell will avoid suppressing if it means a shorter life on the gun.

    Virtually all of the rounds I have shot have been suppressed. I have no clue on how many rounds I have shot through it. I don't get to shoot as much as I would want, but it is far, far from untested as a suppressed SBR. I know it is north of 2K rounds but it is doubtful I have any significant amount more than 3k.

    Structurally, it is the same rifle as received from Tom. There is zero indications of any stress, damage, cracking, you name it. I have understood the welds may actually be stronger than the factory receivers, and have a steel reinforcement at the top interior that bridges the rear weld and receiver. I take that addition to include even if a crack occurred (It won't crack, but supposing it did), it would still hold together. The beauty of the polymer being Tom can fix anything you could ever have go wrong. Check out his recent post on his tommybuilttactical facebook page about the UMP kaboom he repaired. Humpty Dumpty never had a better friend in @tbostic .

    I have taken to changing the buffer pads more frequently. I have noticed, and it might simply be a symptom of all G36/SL8, there is a ridge that develops where the carrier impacts the buffer pad. The carrier sort of cuts into the buffer pad. @Marine0303 may be able to tell us the recommended round count buffer replacement schedule. I wouldn't say my buffers had to be replaced, rather I viewed it as a cheap fix to ward off any potential problem. I may have swapped 2 buffers in my round estimates.

    I would recommend shooting the hell out of it. Everything about it can be fixed; barrels, recoil rods, buffers, piston rings, etc. are plentiful. But, use a muzzle brake on the C length!!

    NzFly, I much appreciate your response and the strong endorsement of suppressor use on the T Bostic conversions! I cannot wait to use mine!

    The recommendations on buffer replacement is 10,000 rounds, but that really is just a SWAG. Different types of ammo and the amount of suppressed shooting will all impart more stress on the recoil buffer. If you shoot more like that than just 55 grain ammo at the target range, expect to see expedited wear. Just keep an eye on the buffer each time you clean your weapon. When it starts to show excessive wear and come apart, replace it.
