AAC Ti-Rant 45
Hey guys, Matthew with Gears of Guns.
Today I want to talk about the AAC Ti-Rant suppressor. I decided to go with this one because of the price point.
At $500 plus the $200 tax stamp, I couldn’t resist. Obviously, I needed the proper form four and a 6 month wait, but then, she was mine.
Overall build quality is very nice. The suppressor looks well made and is made of strong materials. A nice feature I like, is the interchangeable pistons to mount this up to multiple caliber handguns or rifles chambered in a handgun round.
The AAC Ti-Rant also has a fixed barrel spacer for fixed barrels. You can change the point of impact (POI) by pulling on the suppressor and rotating it.
This suppressor can be broken down fully to clean the baffles and tube. A really nice feature is that this adds next to no weight to the front of the gun, making it feel pretty well balanced.
Quiet or Quieter
With claims out there that the suppressor runs at 133db dry or 125db wet with 5cc of gel, I think shows how this suppressor works very well.
Now some might ask why did you chose the Ti-Rant over say the Osprey from SilencerCo? Simply put, price point. At the time, I couldn’t spend the extra $250 for the Osprey.
Also, the Osprey is nice that it doesn’t block the sights. But the AAC has the ability to change the POI. So you have two features and it boils down to what feature appeals more to you.
Overall, a great suppressor and it makes shooting a joy instead of a chore.
A few years back I decided it was time to purchase some new glass. I owned a rather out dated red dot. Among my list of musts, was to keep my red dot, but have the ability to zoom or magnify.
The Search Begins
I started looking and found magnifiers and EOtech. I wasn’t sold yet on what I had seen in the market. Finally, after a long search, light at the end of the tunnel. I saw the HAMR.
HAMR First Impression
My first impression was that this thing looks awesome! I pulled it out of the box and looked through the lens.
Slim & Low Profile
It was crystal clear as I would expect any Leopold glass to look. The red dot was slim and low profile. I was happy with my purchase, without even mounting it.
Let’s focus on the key things that attracted me to buy this scope over so many other choices on the market.
First thing, it’s made for the AR platform in 5.56. Second is the combination of a scope and red dot in one. Finally, the quality and reputation Leopold has.
My favorite feature has to be how the red dot turns on. It detects motion, so the minute you pick your gun up it’s ready to point, aim and shoot.
No longer do I fumble for the switch or button. The scope has an illuminated reticle, which is a very useful feature.
This is overall a rugged designed and quality product. I feel sure this is something that will last me a life time.
Today, I wanted to briefly talk about something semi gun related. A knife is a very useful tool as we all know. I find myself feeling naked without one clipped to my right pocket.
I mean, a knife pretty much goes with me, anywhere I’m legally allowed to carry it. One day, I lost my beloved buck knife. I had had that knife since the age of 10.
Reputation of Benchmade Products
I hit the internet and came across this sexy knife. The Benchmade HK series MP5 model for $140. I don’t really need to say much about Benchmade. They have a reputation as a maker of quality products.
I have been blown out of the water with how handy this little knife is.
So far, it has taken a daily beating, working at an auto shop for two years. The anodizing has faded a little bit, but to me, it adds character.
Snappy Action and Sharp
The knife is still as sharp as the day I received it. It functions perfectly every time and has a really snappy action. I have a very comfortable and firm grip with this knife.
Overall this is an amazing knife that I would recommend to anyone as a daily carry.
Today Matthew takes a look at his favorite safety on his H&K45.
A New Writer is in the House!
Hello my name is Matthew. Today I’m mostly going to be talking about the H&K-45 tactical. For starters I have been an avid shooter since Boy Scouts, 14 years ago. I have thoroughly enjoyed shooting many different guns. Boy Scouts was mostly limited to rifles.
One day I decided it was about time for my first handgun. So I hit the range and started renting guns.
Experimenting with Different Rentals
The first gun I picked out of the case was the S&W M&P. Then I saw the F&N 45 Tactical staring me down. I came back a little disappointed.
A Kind Range Officer
The range officer said here, try this out. He handed me a beautiful H&K 45, as I put a firm grip onto the HK I fell in love. Never have I felt such a comfortable grip in a pistol.
Happy Birthday to Me!
I went and blew through a hundred rounds very quickly. I went to find myself more ammo. Needless to say I purchased the gun for my birthday a month later.
At first sight, this gun is slick and very attractive. H&K did not stop with just the cosmetics; the internals are very well done and sturdy.
2000 Round Experience
In the past year I have put at least 2000 rounds through this gun , cleaning it, every two months. I have not had a FTF or FTE yet. To me this is expected from H&K, especially when compared to the Mark23.
The ergonomics and interchangeable back strap make this one of the most comfortable handguns on the market. I constantly pull 3-inch groups at 25 yards with this gun. The real enjoyment comes from putting the AAC-TI-Rant 45 suppressor on the end.
Attention on Deck
This package makes for one sweet shooting gun at the range. The attention it draws as well is pretty impressive. It has the recoil of a 5.7 but the punch of a 45 down range. This is mostly due to the dual recoil springs. Just another one of many features I love about this gun.
My top 10 favorite things about this gun
4. Ease of breakdown
5. The amount of variations
6. Ambidextrous controls
8. Threaded barrel
10. Child safety lock
Overall this gun was one of my best buys I have made. It serves as a go to defense weapon in and out of the house. I trust my life with this gun, that’s how reliable it is. The H&K 45 is safe, reliable, and fun to shoot. There not much more you could ask for in a handgun.
