G5: The NEW Standard of Comparison
The G5 replaces the venerable M4-96D in a shorter, lighter, and more efficient package. It meets the requirements that the suppressor be quickly and securely attached to and removed from the weapon's flash hider without tools. The G5 suppressor not only meets, but exceeds SOCOM requirements in a physically small package that only adds 5.5 inches to the overall weapon system length.
The all new Gemtech Quik-Mount mounting system (patents pending) provides the fastest, one-handed install — simply push and twist — with no gates, levers, or locks. There are no springs to lose tension or break and allow the suppressor to unscrew. There are no external flash hider threads with potential for damage or loosening. The mounting system assures consistent mounting with repeatable and predictable accuracy.
The barrel portion of the mount is torqued into position to assure utmost accuracy. By utilizing additional flash hider mounts on a variety of weapons, the G5 suppressor can be quickly, easily, and securely moved from weapon to weapon as the situation requires. The G5 Quik-Mount retains compatibility with the older Bi-Lock mounts
Full Automatic Fire Issues:
Suppressors shown with or designed for machine guns are rated for fully automatic fire. In the case of suppressors designed for .223 (5.56mm), there are some limitations in the duration of fully automatic fire due to shortcomings in the ammunition, not the suppressor. 5.56mm is a unique cartridge. The projectile is physically small and lightweight. The relatively high muzzle velocity causes excessive barrel heating from friction, with outside barrel temperatures exceeding 700° F in a 100 round burst. Bore temperature is considerably higher. The projectile contains a small quantity of lead, which after a 90 round burst starts to soften and/or melt. The softening of the lead core results in geometric instability of the projectile, causing excessive yawing, tumbling, and suppressor baffle contact. These effects are not normally seen anywhere near this early in larger caliber projectiles, such as 7.62 NATO. Although the suppressor is capable of withstanding long bursts using ammunition not containing any lead, any lead containing 5.56mm ammunition will damage the suppressor. Because of the deleterious heating effect, most weapon manufacturers place serious limitations on sustained fully automatic fire and state that the barrel is ruined after a 200 round burst.
ALL NFA RULES APPLY. SUPPRESSORS SHIPPED OUT OF STATE MUST BE TRANSFERRED TO A CLASS III FFL/SOT ON A FORM 3 FOR TRANSFER TO YOU ON A FORM 4. THEY CAN ONLY BE SHIPPED DIRECT TO AUTHORIZED GOVERNMENT AGENCIES. ALL IN-STATE TRANSFERS CAN BE COMPLETED DIRECTLY ON THE FINAL FORM 4 WITH NO TRANSFER FEES IF PICKED UP LOCALLY.
