Special note: Some minor audio issues with the popping since the wind was very high that day. 20+ mph.  So this is a chapter 2 video to the original, “Suppressor Over-gasses AR-10”.  The owner of the rifle has installed an adjustable gas-block which has given him the ability to control bolt speed. Additionally, while trying to diagnose the issue, he …
