2 + w/ James: The material which Frens wrote is a mish mash of kabash. Time should be spent on studying correct and authorized information on ballistics, to include the affects of barrel lengths, types. Lastly,it is necessary to fully learn the effects of various ammo.
Two things, firstly its a movie. While movies like this are much better about weapon accuracy then most, they're not perfect. That's not the point of the movie.
Secondly, if you notice, the suppressor goes back practically to the FSB. I've made this observation and the comment that I am about to make before. If it was screwed into the barrel instead of the FH, you'd be able to see more barrel on an 11.5" weapon (such as the Colt Model 733). This leads me to believe this is a slip-over reflex style can obtained for the movie, and actually not an uncommon style of suppressor used by US elite forces before new cans were developed.

Also, everytime I hear someone use the term CAR-15 I just have the urge to educate. Go here and learn.
