Suppressor Mounted Length

Mounted length is the length by which a suppressor increases the length of a weapon when mounted. Most muzzle mounted suppressors increase the overall length of a weapon by 8-14 inches. What is the point of having a short barreled carbine if the suppressor is going to turn it back into a full-sized rifle or worse. The Reflex Suppressor design allows a much greater internal volume for a very short mounted length. This results in a good noise reduction value for a very small increase in the weapon’s over all length. A T8 Reflex Suppressor only adds 3.5 to 4 inches to the OAL depending on the model. The picture above shows dramatically the difference in mounted length of a T8ARM4C vs a competing design. Both rifles have identical length barrels.
