Reflex Suppressor: Two Point Mount
Unlike a conventional muzzle mounted sound suppressor which is fixed and aligned to the barrel only by a small thread and thread shoulder (single point mount), Reflex Suppressors are aligned at two points on the barrel nearly 8 inches apart. The front of the suppressor is aligned on a spigot at the muzzle (see below) and the rear of the suppressor is aligned on the outside of the barrel by a close-fitting interchangeable bushing (see left). When fitted in accordance with the designer’s instructions the retaining thread and shoulder do not contribute to the correct alignment of the suppressor. This means that the thread can be made very nearly the full original diameter of the barrel (-1.0 mm or -0.040″ is usually OK).
