First of all, the Dead Air Keymo mount is just plain awesome. Secondly, the silencer industry is strange in that we are a huge family for the most part and have great relationships between manufacturers for the most part. Take for instance, this mount, we use the Dead Air Keymo mount on our Agent 556 silencer and for good reason, it works.
It works so well that we decided to work on a deal with them to offer their mounts with our cans instead of developing our own mount. This was two fold beneficial for the consumer in the end. First off, they get the best mount on the market and secondly this basically standardizes our suppressor mounting with theirs which is heading towards industry standardization. This is always a win for the end user. The mounting solutions over the years have had varying degrees of success and when Mike and the team over at Dead Air got done, the Keymo basically solved the problem.
Some of the attributes of a good mount are that it needs to be able to be installed quickly, even in the dark. This means that you should also be able to install it with one hand. No special latches to release or fumble with that can also be defeated with mud or ice. It also needs to release easily when the gun has cooled back to normal as well, this is the problem with most mounts today, they freeze in place requiring extreme measures to remove them. Another note is that these are not quick detach cans, but rather quick attach silencers. This literally means you need to let it cool before trying to remove it.
We stock the Dead Air Keymo mount in our webstore for anyone wanting one for their project as well as offering it bundled with our Agent 556 silencer. So until next time, keep your powder dry and have some fun!
