    Hey guys,

    I have a Radiant that’s been in jail since late October (check cashed 10/30). I’ve learned a good bit about cans since my purchase and now I have some questions.

    I have an 11.5” Geissele upper. I also have a JP Enterprises Silent capture spring system that I’ll need to sell and swap for the Law folder compatible version. Can you guys recommend what weight(s) I should try first to reliably cycle while suppressed? Will running the radiant sun K vs full version make a significant difference here? Should I just abandon the silent capture thing? I’ve read that it’s great and also that it’s mostly gimmick. My am concerned with reliability first and foremost, but if I can smooth out or reduce buffer spring noise or felt recoil while maintaining reliability that’s be great.

    Does the 556 vice the .30 end cap it comes with make any genuine difference in regards to flash or back pressure?

    Is there any concern at all shooting green tip, frangible, or any other DODIC at all out of this can?

    When purchasing the Radiant from SS I was told the can would easily outlast multiple barrels? Is that true? My rifle isn’t select fire.

    Been running my Radiant for a few months now. Flash is always gonna be a thing with short barrels, really bad on my 8.5 psd. Getting the 5.56 endxap seems to reduce it alot.

    Do not have the radiant but I do have the micro30.

    In short configuration (5″ just like radiant) the backpressure is significantly less than the long version (6.5″ vs the radiant 7.5″)

    So I would defenitly assume the radiant in long configuration will have significantly more backpressure than short.
