Default Rugged Suppressors Surge 762 Torture Test

We wanted to quell some myths about modular suppressors by torture testing the Surge 762 to the point of failure.

Yes! We're going to be doing an upcoming series documenting the before, during and after of a more realistic yet intense test.

OK, a couple relevant questions from someone unfamiliar with your products.....
You call the suppressor a 762 but it appears you're firing 223. You also state at the end that 223 can get unstable when things get hot so I'm assuming you're firing 223. Is that correct?

What is the adapter you added up front at the beginning?

Flames coming out the end of the suppressor generally indicates bullets and bullet parts striking internal parts of the suppressor. The flames are chunks of material flying out the end. This is usually caused by overheated bullets coming unglued as they pass through an overheated barrel. Question is what did the bore of the can look like after all this?

Thanks
Frank

I thought flames in a suppressor mean unburnt powder igniting in the suppressor.

The test was conducted using mil-surplus 5.56 tracer rounds - these are a much harsher test than standard M193 or M855.

The adapter that was added at the beginning of the clip is our Adapt Module. The Surge 762 is the industry's first modular rifle suppressor. It ships in a 9" configuration with the Adapt Module installed and can be configured to a 7.5" with the removal of the adapt module.

The flames are a combination of unburned powder and the tracer cups. Flames out of the rear of the suppressor are from the Locktite catching fire.

This test was conducted with one of our demo test cans which had already seen thousands of rounds and we also failed to document the can before the test as it was pretty spur of the moment. We are going to be doing an upcoming series where everything will be documented before during and after for more thorough test results.
