    Here is a LRKM in 338 Edge +P, Nightforce ATACR 5-25x MOAR, DE Titanium over the barrel supressor, still only 45 long OAL, 16.6 lbs, I can talk to and hear my spotter, no blast, low recoil and with the 120+ moa / 20 moa in the reticule I see 3000 yards. Oh baby!!!

    WOW! Looks a little too shiny for the type of hunting you do, but I don't think the animals I hunt will mind the glare feel free to send it my way :D. I think we also need to see a video of that thing in action. Are the DE suppressors going to be available for purchase?

    I just curious if he has a military contract for these rifles yet. I don't recall seeing anything else out there that is as compact as this rifle can be.

    The supressors will be availableafter the design etc is fully tested. The military dosen't have a contract for any yet but there is some interest.

    What is the difference in recoil from the suppressor to the break?

    So is the cheek weld on the bolt. Looks a bit uncomfortable...

    What is the actual barrel length on the rifle?

    Also what is the velocity loss in this setup as compared to a setup without a suppressor?

    I hate shiney atleast as much as everyone here put together , but I just couldn't wait to show it off. I'll post some "finished" photos next week I hope.

    Booney - supressors are interesting in terms of recoil reduction, not only do they work at least as good as the best brake they slow the pulse down making more like a shotguns roilling recoil as opposed to the quick slam of the say a 300 RUM.

    Triple BB - the rifle you are looking at is left handed, it has a full Kydex cheekpiece that is kind of hard to see in the picture. It is quite comfortable.

    Webs - Barrel length is still 30", the velocity is actually about 20 FPS faster with the supressor on. I sacraficed a little noise reduction for a design that would allow retention of the long barrel but still reasonable noise levels.

    Glad you guys like it. It is nice to see it well received after the years (5 to be exact) of R & D testing and work it took.

    So I take it that the barrel from like 15"-30" is ported to disperse the gases into the baffles? Is that how too integrate a supressor?

    No, it is not. There is no porting of the barrel. The design relys on redirecting gasses and reducing gas speed prior to exiting the can through baffel design, a blast baffle and rebound chamber.
