I got a new can and want to check alignment on 2 rifles. So I need to use it for about 5 mins and really don't want to spend $75 on a new one.

Thanks,

Never heard of one. You could maybe try a wood dowel.

Are you afraid the threads aren't square?

Good, now I know whom to ask if I want to check mine.

I have a Suppressor coming one day (April order) for my M&P 10. I've never heard of this alignment rod thing before. Is this something common you need to do with a new suppressor?

It's just an easy way to make sure everything is lined up before you load and hit the bang switch. If you have a muzzle device that the suppressor connects to it's way to give you a little piece of mind that you're not at risk for a baffle strike.

Take a look at this link, has a good pic of how it works.

Install can. Remove bolt. Look down barrel from breech end. looks good? Go shoot. That is the system I use. I don't like putting steel things in my precision barrels, especially near the crown. Not being a jerk, just the way I see it.

Well there are a lot of posts out there like this one. But to each their own, I really have no opinion on what your do with your property. I wasn't trying to convince anyone to do anything with my post. Just looking for an alignment rod.

I appreciate your post, now I'm kinda freaked out about my new Harvester on my 308.

I always just look through the bore on every firearm that uses a suppressor. Never had a baffle strike yet!
