Based on the picture below it looks like KAC (Knight’s Armament Company) may be joining the 300AAC Blackout market with at least some sort of 300 Blackout Upper in the future. Its no surprise that the 300 Blackout has become a huge player when looking at alternative rounds to the normal 5.56 AR’s. It’s a very easy conversion for the manufacturer as it only requires the use of a different barrel and flash hider, everything else is the same. The benefit is much better stopping power and shoots very well suppressed especially with SubSonic rounds.
