5.56 suppressor recommendations

Hey all I've decided to take the plunge into stamp territory and have some cash saved for my first suppressor.

I know 5.56 will never get hollywood quiet but I'm looking to find something that may at least reduce me down to "wont piss off the neighbors" territory if thats possible. I've never heard one shot in person, and not sure if youtube does it justice.

My budget is $1100 including the stamp so i guess really $900 for the suppressor itself.

Whats good?

THanks

Edit: Been looking specifically at the Silencerco Saker lineup. any good?

If you only get 1, get a .30cal. They're quieter and more useful on a wider variety of hosts.

You will be happy with any from a reputable manufacturer, Titanium is great but seriously buy what's on sale if you are not already wed to a brand.

I personally like Silencerco and Dead Air, I already have guns with thier mounts so it makes sense for me to stick with them. Silencerco has also demonstrated great customer service to me and that is worth a lot.

I agree with getting a .30 cal. You have a MUCH more diverse can. You could consider the Silencerco Hybrid.

Whats the attachment method for an AR with this can?

Direct thread? Would I need a specific muzzle device?

I have an SDN-6. It’s an older design. But works great. It’s a little heavy but it helps with recoil. About 300$ cheaper than your budget if you wanted to spend a little less.

I'll second - for your first, you should consider a 30 cal can although whatever you do, don't rush to a decision. There's a number of excellent cans out there. Start by reviewing manufacturer (I prefer the big three Silencerco, Dead Air, Rugged), warranty (sh_t happens), build material/durability, weight, mounting options (can't stress enough), and how effective is the can. There's naturally a balance between all factors however remember on a 5.56 - the bullet will break the SB, meaning it won't be super quiet. The can simply tames the 5.56. There's a good chance you pickup a 300BLK at some point down the road.

Also - just remember, you're going to receive lots of opinions, with some of it outdated. Make your own decision.

As for the Silencerco Saker - I have a first generation one and love it. It's a great durable, adaptable and effective can from a good company - and honestly I've been contemplating another. The gen 2 30 cal Saker is a little longer than the gen 1. Also, you'll probably hear at one time Silencerco was in financial trouble - and that might have been true ~3-4 years ago, but no more and their customer service is great. Call any of these manufacturers and ask a couple questions, just to reassure yourself.. A can is generally a lifelong purchase.

Also - think about the individual versus trust debate.. I started individual and but shifted over.. Once you pickup your first can, a disorder starts and most can't stop at one...

I went with ThunderBeast.

Mainly because of no change in point of impact for my .308 bolt gun.

And I can used them across several rifles. I have two .30 cal cans.

They thread to a TB muzzle brake or flash suppressor. I have muzzle brake on my .308 bolt. And flash suppressor mounts on my ARs

If you are shooting semi and/or full autos... ie any type of automatics and not bolt or pump guns... All other answers are wrong... the future is hear... the choice is clear. I rarely make a statement like that, however after shooting them, I sold off my Silencerco Omega at considerable loss (I bought it as last suppressor I would ever need) and bought one! It will take a while to get here, however I have shot them enough to know... it is the answer, even if you have not asked the questions.

I have a good friend with a Saker, he bought an OSS at the exact same time as me. Its that superior and both of us like Silenerco products with each of us only at least 3 of their suppressors and I have the Maxim 9 at the dealer with this OSS.
