The HX-QD 762 utilizes a patented Flow-Through design that moves the gases through the unit in a helical pattern which allows for expansion and cooling as they exit out the front. The torque generated by the exiting gases keeps the suppressor snug on the mount. No tools are needed for installation or removal. The HX-QD 762’s Flow-Through system does not increase back pressure (blowback) like a traditional baffle suppressor. This innovative technology produces heat at a lower rate than a traditional suppressor” and it does not increase toxic gas discharge at the ejection port. The HX-QD 762 does not increase bolt velocity (+/- 5%). Therefore” muzzle rise and recoil are managed” and there is no increase in weapon malfunctions.
