Default AR Suppressor

Iím sure thereís a ton of guys on here with loads of knowledge about these things. Iím getting ready to pull the trigger on one and wondering what model the experts would recommend? It will be going on my Daniel defense in 300blk. This is a dedicated hog/varmint gun. Would like to keep it around a grand if possible. Is the QD really that much better? Looking at so many suppressorss online my head is starting to spin. Thanks for any input!

I know you said dedicated, but I have been very happy with this multi caliber set up.

Other sources have it for less $$$

I like my screw on titanium YHM Phantom. Itís 30 caliber so I can use it on my 223 as well.

Best is highly subjective based on what is most important to you. Lightest ? Quietest ?

For .300BLK it will be a 7.62 suppressor. You can use it with 5.56 with the appropriate muzzle device. QD IMO beats direct thread since DT can loosen and at 1000 degrees it's kinda hard to tighten it back up by hand

Start here:

AAC SR7

Griffin Armament Recce 7

Dead Air Sandman

If your LGS works with Silencer Shop, they make the transfers simple. Wait times are 7-12 months

What is the host gun ?

I did all the homework....The Silencer Co Omega, top selling suppressor, can use with 5,56 all the way to 300 win Mag, With the flat end cap it's only 6" long. ASR muzzle break and flash hider offer quick mount capability.

Using it on different calibers is something I never even thought about. My AR will be dedicated for hog mostly but I do have other riffles I could put the suppressor on. Thanks for the link!

I went with an Advanced Armament M4-2000 and it works well. Only complaint I have is how freaking hot it gets.

I did the same and bought the Omega. $800 can, $200 tax stamp...13 month wait... but I can use it on my .223, 5.56, .300 blk, and .308... I have quick change adapters on all 4 rifles so the Omega simply screws on to whichever rifle I want to shoot. Love that thing.

I like my Silencerco harvester. It fits my 5.56 and .308.

I use a AAC 300-tm and love it. No qd, but I leave it on so no big deal. Super light and rated for anything I'd ever want to shoot.

I have 3 Thunderbeast cans, and they are great! Started out shooting hogs, now I hunt suppressed all the time. Figured I spent the money on cans, don't want to buy hearing aids later!

QD isn't any better, likely worse.

If you are considering using on a AR platform, you should be aware of Titanium. It doesn't handle the heat as well. Especially if you are considering using it on a 223/5.56mm. Please understand the AR platform it a loud system to try and suppress.

I do like my Omega, but would not feel comfortable abusing it on a 223.

I like my friends Silencerco Hybrid and wish it was available when I first started buying cans. So I would recommend it.

Please don't us the Omega with pistol calibers. It maxes out at .308"!!!!!!

A 9mm is .356". A 40s&w is .410.

Thx for the clarification, should have specified this. I knew 40/45 were far too large but thought I recalled being able to shoot 9mm, good thing I never tried. Only 300blk and 5.56 out of her so far.

There are a few comments here about hunting with suppressors and the benefit of hearing safe.

Suppressors suppress sound and muzzle signature, but do not make firearms silent. The use of the word Silencer should be dropped from use by the gun community since it gives the wrong impression to those who have no knowledge of suppressors.

For those not familiar with suppressors it should be noted that in order to be potentially hearing safe several factors come into play. They include caliber, type of round, barrel length and the suppressor chosen

5.56 rounds are typically all supersonic and therefore never hearing safe

300BLK rounds are available in subsonic or supersonic and the subs are typically hearing safe when suppressed. 300BLK supersonic rounds are not hearing safe. Most hunting rounds are supersonic and not hearing safe

.22LR standard velocity is subsonic and typically hearing safe when used with a suppressor. High Velocity .22LR (commonly used with semiautomatic firearms) is supersonic and is generally not hearing safe.

9mm rounds are available in super and sub and the same generally holds true

These points are offered as guidelines and not facts. The type of firearm, round, suppressor and most importantly the laws of physics will determine whether a particular combination is hearing safe.

Many (including myself) had/have unrealistic expectations of what a suppressor can do and it can be disappointing when those expectations are not met.

I tell people on the range all the time, you are only issued one set of eyes and ears, and they should be protected accordingly

I would argue that even supers are hearing safe with a lot of suppressors. I hunt with both, always through the can, and never feel as if i am damaging my ears.
