    Muzzle forward can

    I've got a mate looking for a true muzzle forward suppressor for his NEA 300blk. The thread is flush with the end of the hand guard with only 35mm inside diameter in the handguard. Have any of you got muzzle forward cans with a tight clearance like this? Looking to see what brand can will fit best, or with minimal machining of guard required

    @Beavis, really? they look like the thread screws in quite far inside. I rang Darren but he's out of stock and not making more for 2-3 weeks anyway

    Hey Dan
    The DPT will fit. It has a spacer that butts up againts the shoulder ,about 22mm dia, protrudes by 10mm.

    Waitaki cans come with a peel washer now which would also add a bit of room between the can and handguard.

    @sneeze Awesome cheers Chris. That's the picture i wanted to see, DPT website shows a different picture so I wasn't sure and neither were Mot Gun shop. Next to try was an ASE when they back in stock approx 2 weeks, and were planning to look at a Waitaki Can because we're down that way next week. But DPT is the first choice

    @specweapon

    Here's another perspective of the DPT fitted to my 16" CMMG.

    From this I think your mate would have about 10mm clearance between the hand guard and the rear face of the suppressor
