King Arms TROY M4-SPC Silencer

I brought over several of these silencers through my King Arms Bulk Order back in March of this year, and by special request here is a review.

What separates this silencer from traditional suppressors is the mounting adaptor, which lets you attach the silencer without having to remove the flash hider.

Construction is not unlike other KA suppressors, decently built with nice trademarks, filled with several pieces of foam. Both end caps on the silencer can be removed for easy access to the guts.




The package comes with the silencer, mounting adaptor and optional thread protector cap.



It's fairly lightweight for its size (210mm L x 38mm W), weighing in at approx. 200g (silencer with adaptor). For comparison, Guarder's USSOCOM Silencer with similar dimensions weighs in at 400g. http://www.uncompany.com/pageproduct...sp?prodid=5508

Before you purchase this unit you'll need to ensure you have enough clearance for the silencer to fit over the adaptor. The minimum requirement is 2.75" from the tip of the outer barrel threads to your front end. Any less and you won't be able to mate the threads inside the silencer with the threads on the adaptor. Generally, CQB type barrels will not give sufficient clearance.



Also note, the inner diameter of the silencer is 1", as most flash hiders are less than 1" in overall diameter this shouldn't be a problem, however the custom junkies out there may find this bit of info useful. :-D


Installation is simple enough, first remove the flash hider.


Next, loosen the grub screw located in the threads of the adaptor and slip the adaptor over the barrel, as far as back as it will go. Tighten the grub screw, this will hold the adaptor in place.



Now put your flash hider back on, and if you want, screw on the thread protector cap. Leaving it off will allow quicker install of the silencer.


To attach the silencer, make sure the thread protector is removed, and slip the silencer over the flash hider and slide it along the barrel... once you feel resistance you can start turning :tup: The inside of the silencer is threaded and will mate to the threads on the adaptor.




And you're done!

Jugglez you've made my day! I'd been wondering if one of these would fit my MRE and I wasn't brave enought to spend the money to find out. Thanks for a great review!

If you're going to use the barrel that came with the MRE kit, then it won't work, the barrel isn't long enough.... you need a barrel just slightly longer.

Custom.

One option to save money would be to get a barrel extension piece. You don't need a whole new barrel, unless you want to keep the one piece design.

Something like this:

Thanks Jugglez, that piece came to mind when I read it wouldn't fit. I may just go with a normal QD if I do get a can.

Jugglez,
I am new to this site and I just bought the King Arms Troy M4 CQB-SPC Silencer from Cobra Airsoft. It says it fits all TM M4A1s, but when I put the mounting adapter over the barrel, it does not go down far enough to expose the threading for me to re-attach the flash hider. I know this was over a year ago for you, but did you run into this problem? The AEG I am trying to use it on is the new 2006 Tokyo Marui M4A1. It is the stock barrel and has plenty of room to move down the barrel. I noticed when I looked inside the mounting adapter that it has a thin lip 2/3 of the way up. I thnk that is hitting the base of the flash hider threading and it will not go any further than that. I can still tighten the grub screw and screw on the silencer, but the whole reason I chose this silencer was for the fact that it says you can leave the flash hider attached. I noticed in your photos, that there wasn't much thread showing when you had the mounting adapter on the barrel. Well if you are still on this forum and I'd appreciate any information you could give me. Thank you for your time.
