We know that while shooting is fun, and building rifles is a blast, a lot of the joy firearms enthusiasts experience comes from pure esthetics. Some guys like the wicked sharp looks of Spikes Tactical Barking Spider, other guys can’t pass up a custom forend. Then there’s the Spike’s Tactical CAR-1 Fake Can. This one’s for the guy that wants to show off the look of a short barrel suppressed build without getting heavily involved in legal studies or finding himself on the ATF’s radar. Fake Suppressor, no stamp, no paperwork, great look.

Spikes Tactical Fake Cans are machined from 6061 Aluminum Bar Stock so they’re durable and stay good looking with a quality Hard Anodized finish just like our real muzzle devices. When applied the Spike’s Tactical CAR-1 Fake Can shrouds a portion of your barrel giving it the look of a suppressed short barreled rifle. The overall length of this Fake Suppressor is 5.5 inches and it’s 1.25 inches in diameter. The can fits under some rail systems, but you should have a precise measurement or contact your rail’s manufacturer before you make a commitment if that’s what you’re looking for.

The Spikes Tactical Fake Can comes pre-threaded for ½” x 28 barrels. This lightweight fake can weighs at only 6.5 ounces. It comes with Spike’s Lifetime Warranty but remember, this one’s just for looks.

    I get the one(s) with no logo. They give a great look to full length barrel rifle with a 9 or 10 inch rail if you don't want just a long barrel sticking out and you don't want to add $200 to the "rifle". I have one on a 22lr and another on a 5.7x28 rifle. These do slip over the barrel so you can fire with them installed (on a rifle). I did flip one over and throw it on a 380 pistol with threaded barrel, but just for hanging on the wall above my desk... you cannot fire a pistol with this installed (does not clear the guide rod), so fyi.

    Slipped onto my M&P 15-22 in 5 seconds. Just take a wrench and loosen your (flash hider in my case), remove the washer and screw this bad boy directly on! Recommend hand tightening only. Looks supper cool and exactly like a standard suppressor. For those wondering, the Spike's Tactical logo add-on is the spider. The white lettering comes with the suppressor w/ or w/o the logo add-on option.

    I am very pleased with this item. It is very nice and tactical looking. Took literally 20 seconds to install and looks really sharp. I will be purchasing more for several of my other rifles
