Yessir, it's just gas blowback. Try investing in a Schuster adjustable gas plug, that should help.

Using Subsonic ammo would alleviate the "gas in the eye" but they will not cycle the action.

Using sub's in your M1A turns it into a straight pull bolt action, if thats the way you ant to go more power to you.

I recommend the gas deflector from the M14 blank firing devicel.

Here's a pic:



You can pick one up from RA parts fro 20 bucks.

The gas in the eye from a Suppressed M1A is a significant distraction. Takes a lot of practice to not let it impact your shooting. The deflector mentioned above works well.


Thanks from MAC702 and heyjowee

Suppressed M14's in a warzone was a 200 yard rifle and had to be cycled manually. They did have some interesting loads for it.

I'd considered suppressing mine until I shot one; decided I prefer my AR for that purpose. The gas in the eye is avoidable with the AR.

My M1A Scout is the one with my suppressor mount. It also has the ARMS #18 scope mount. The scope mount doubles as the gas deflector and I don't notice it any more. I definitely remember it during the test firing before I put the scope on it.

Send me a pm. I have what you need for cost of shipping. If you're not going to scope it then you need the action cover for the blank firing adapter kit. It's purpose is to deflect gas while firing blanks.

What kind of rounds are you using?
for my old ebr, if we shot rounds suppressed, we used low grain ammo(if available) with enough blow back for the bolt to cycle. Using high grain/velocity rounds through a subsonic suppressor with make the rounds pretty much tumble to the target.
