After perfecting the baffle and suppressor design, the team went to work on designing a quick connect adaptor system that met the following design requirements: No threads, no ratchets, easily cleaned, easily attached and removed, and must index into the exact same location every time the suppressor is installed. After extensive design and testing, a solution to all the above requirements along with many additional features were developed. The end result was a quick connect and muzzle adaptor assembly built from a special grade of stainless steel that is extremely stable and specially heat-treated to an extremely high hardness for extended durability.
The quick-connect features a ¼ turn installation that installs in the same location every time, mounting lugs and grooves that can be cleared of debris with a gloved finger, installation in complete darkness by feel, high-temperature Inconel sealing rings to prevent gas from escaping from the rear of the can and a built-in carbon scraper that cleans the inside of the quick connect assembly every time it is installed and removed. The quick-connect also features corresponding tapers that lock together when the suppressor is attached to prevent gas from escaping between the muzzle adaptor and suppressor.
A proprietary ceramic-based coating that chemically bonds to the grain structure of the stainless-steel components of the muzzle adaptor is also used to create a surface coating that is extremely hard and will not crack, chip or peel. This coating can resist temperatures over 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit and has a coefficient of friction under .10 so no lubrication is ever needed. This coating is also extremely dense and resists the adhesion of molten lead, copper, and carbon build-up along with creating another layer of corrosion resistance on top of the natural characteristics of stainless steel. This quick-connect technology was also awarded a United States Patent. Extensive destruction testing has been done to determine the operational limits of the suppressor systems and they far exceed any standards ever developed or required by the United States Military.
