Can I shoot my suppressor on a fully automatic firearm?
The QUEST IS rated for full auto fire. Its lightweight stainless construction makes it a perfect compromise for a handgun / rifle suppressor while still being overly robust for fullauto fire. However, when used for full auto fire (as well as extended high volume semi auto fire), care must be taken not to overheat the suppressor to the point that it could be damaged. You should use the same care that you would use with your firearm or automobile to ensure that you do not cross the line from use to abuse. Volume of fire, barrel length, ambient temperature etc will all be factors contributing to the duty cycle of the suppressor in full auto applications. For really hard full auto fire, we recommend our DIAMOND all stainless steel .22LR suppressor, which is capable of am minimum of EIGHT AM180 275 round drums run back to back with no damage. The DIAMOND suppressor is however too heavy for comfortable use on a handgun or rifle.
