POTD: The Smoking Gun – Ase Utra Suppressor with Cole-Tac cover

Ase Utra is a Finnish maker of sound suppressors, and an excellent at that.

Cole-Tac call themselves “a tactical accessory manufacturer“, and pictured is a custom made High Temperature Suppressor cover. It’s made for full auto firearms, but I figured it would work well removing the mirage from the sights of my Ruger Precision Rifle.

The Ase Utra SL7i is well hidden under the cover, but you can see the Quick Detach function. I bought this from Cole-Tac in Europe, and configured it 100% to my specification. I bought this in the 2017 Black Friday sale and I’m really happy with their service.

My Ruger Precision Rifle is in .308 Win and I have confirmed hits out to 900 meters with it.

At 1 000 meters the sight bottomed out, and it became really difficult to track and adjust the hits. I was using GGG and Lapua ammunition, which seemed to work really well.

In all honesty, most of the shooting with this rifle is for shooting at much shorter distances.

The sight is a Schmidt & Bender 3-12×50 PMII, in a Spuhr Quick Detach mount.
