Not knocking you but did you read his first post? It didn't ask about using a qd mount. He asked about threading a can directly on to his threaded bw5 and pistol. My comments still stand that a thread on can can come loose and you need to keep an eye on it. I would still buy and use the female 3 lug for the can because until you spend the money to get the barrel threaded, you could have bought the female 3 lug and in my opinion, a 3 lug mount is much better than just thread on.As for the comming loose. I use a QD mount flash hider that the can mounts to. When the can is removed you are left with the flash hider so the issue of it becoming loose is a non issue.
I agree with you 100%. It is your dime and you should spend it on whatever works for you. However, the only guns he said he wanted to suppress were his bw5 and his pistol. I understand that you were probably just giving him other options but for the 2 that he asked about, it would end up costing him more to thread and buy a qd mount than just using a thread on can or a 3 lug female can mount that would work on his male 3 lug already on the bw5. I shoot my glocks suppressed too so i need a LID mount for them---maybe he doesn't need the LID depending on what pistol he has--so the plain thread on can might work for him. He just needs to keep an eye on it coming loose.I don't think it looks silly at all. It just has a phantom flashider on it. Silly is the vortec flash hider on a tac. I know I have one as well. I can let it go cheap. Also as it is my dime I did what I wanted to. I have 6 diff weapons I use my QD can on and if I were to use a 3 lug mounted can then it would be only 5. I don't want to get another can when the one I have is fine.
