    HAving a duh moment, previous issue with suppressor thread in here

    but I cant seem to find it?

    Just seen a picture of AR15 blown open "while using a suppressor", no idea on actual cause yet though.

    I mean holy cow this looks bad,

    Though at least the failure was to the side and not back at the shooter....

    At least with the carbon failing, most of the major steel components should still be usable.

    Is this gonna be one of those 'rifle failures' that is caused by the user doing something stupid like firing it with a cleaning rod in the barrel?

    It's just what happens when you put a suppressor on a "carbon" AR. They're piles of shit.
