First time silencer

I think I'm going to get my first can.

Anything I really need to he warned about when it comes to these cans? I'm trying to keep it on a budget and I want to pull the trigger soon.

Sig 762 SRDQD
YHM Phantom Lite
AAC SR 762

The Sig seems like the best choice for weight and length but the AAC being cheap and on sale is tempting, despite being a 9" heavy piece of metal. Still, its barely over $500.

Primary use would be on a bolt action and riding on a AR for hearing protection if it ever needed to be used in HD.

If HD is in your plan, you may want to go with the shortest one to maintain mobility. Otherwise, lighter is generally better IMHO. Just be prepared that these are like babies and take around 9 months to show up.

YHM LT. Mine has zero POI shift( I use it on two different rifles wit the same results). It isn't that heavy and cools down very quickly. My 2 cents.

Within the price range,

- QD Taper mount or direct threaded
- full size or compact

Rugged suppressors have a great deal on the well liked Razor 7.62 with a rebate that includes 2 extra taper flash mounts. This is great because they have 1/2x28 mounts that can be slapped on a 5.56 rifle with ease. Then right back on your .30 cal rifle. I believe they run $775 but worth it.

I know this wasnt an option you listed but worth the look into.

I recently bought a Recce 7 Mod4 because is a compact can that exceeds my dB reduction limit.

I was gonna get the YHM LT until I found the nitro. The nitro fit my needs better for direct and QD threads. But I've never heard someone be unhappy with the LT. If you're looking for HD get the LTA in case you have to stab someone with it..........

This blows up your budget, but my pick for a .30 caliber "do it all" suppressor is the Griffin Optimus. That said, with your stated intent, I think you'll be pretty happy with the SIG 762SRDQD. The only downside to that can (and why I didn't get one) is the limitation on compatible muzzle devices. I think the only option is a pretty loud brake. If having limited muzzle device choices bothers you, the current Rugged Razor promotion is pretty tempting. I would go for that if I didn't already have a Q Thunder Chicken in NFA jail.

That's the one I have. It comes with 'people velcro' on the end. Very persuasive.

Notice the scale of the plot now goes to 450 days.

Supposedly those are coming way down, but I'll believe it when my seven stamps of various types show up. That said, this is one reason I like to suggest the Griffin Optimus, or a .30 cal can + a Liberty Cosmic. Versatility may turn off folk looking to shave every last ounce or dB of sound, but it seems worth it to me. Additionally I do not trust the Maryland Legislature at all, and assume they could move to ban suppressors any session now. Doubly so if federal regulation of suppressors is lightened or eliminated. Might as well have as much covered as possible, assuming our overlords deign to allow us serfs a grandfathering clause again.

Bought this on recommendation from the clown. Still waiting on the stamp.
