I have a sealed 5.56 can. I don't want to and will never put it on anything other than an AR. I want to pin it and run a 15" hand guard over it and have a non-NFA suppressed rifle. Given that it is a sealed can and I can't "clean it," other than cleaning the rifle and having to run patches with a slit rod instead of push rod, I don't really see a downside. What am I missing? Obviously it would be a forever mine rifle.
 
It’s often done ... I’d consider dimple and a set screw with thread lock. Id also think about grabbing a suppressor bore alignment rod to check for baffle strikes.
