    Being able to use them on multiple firearms is a pro to me.

    Con to that is needing multiple muzzle devices for each of the firearms.

    I'm leery of those quick detaches. It was definitely user error, but I was shooting with a friend of mine who has a quick detach suppressor on his .300BO SBR. The first round down range, and that can flew about 15 yards! He was embarrassed, I couldn't help but laugh. After the can and barrel attachment were inspected, no permanent damage was done. He just didn't cinch it down.

    After looking at the prices of the QD adapters, and the number of rifles I wanted to use the can on, it quickly became obvious that I would have more Money in adapters than the can cost. It just takes a second to direct thread the suppressor to a barrel.

    30B37530-0554-485E-87D6-D8C3B83E4C39.png For me a pro if I were to or do own one is multi weapon use. The con would be as one has mentioned that they can come off. Here is a pic of my range and one red circle indicates where my shooting table was set and the other 28yds away is where it ended up for 5 days. The pond was up a foot higher than in the pic. I did not see it come off.

    My YHM has a ratcheting type QD. No way it is coming off. Of course, yes, multiple muzzle devices is the down side, but it's a nice can.
